Tell the truth I enjoy every single teen movie, and I have seen a whole lot of it, A Whole Lot. I categorize them and this one got to be the light weight teen comedy. Something that is not very funny because it got this very mild humor for that actual teen but at the same time it wasn’t that bad.

Synopsis: B is good in extra curriculum, unfortunately that doesn’t help in a place at any university. With a pressure from his parents; he and couple of friends finally came up with the idea to built fake college. Problem arises when other students also get accepted into this fake college.

Not bad of an idea, not an original, but who care, it’s a teen movie after all. I like it, the only problem for me was the character development wasn’t that good, and there are too many characters that haven’t been polish very well. Like Glen he was suppose to be like Booger (Revenge of the Nerd) stupid, yet intelligence in his own way and funny. But here he hardly does anything.

I love the cast, I love Justin Long, which guy is funny, I always follow his work and he does a pretty good job as “B”. Everyone here seems to fit the jigsaw very well. And the acting is decent though from time to time it gets cheesy and the dialogue is also weird at time.

The movie consists of very touching and inspiring moments and the bond about friendship, and the stupid and how the education system should be. Unfortunately, the movie more or less lack in humor, don’t get it wrong, it just not “laugh out loud” kind it is more of smile type. This movie is for someone older and pre-teen that does not look for toilet humor and more life good morale kind of movie.

Recommendation: Yea Sure, It Worth A Rental.

Reason To Watch: Justin Long, Fake College.

Reason Not To: If you’re A Teenager Looking For Real Humor and Nudity.

Rating: 6.5/10 (Grade: C+)
