A Mixed Bag and Exactly what I expected !!! (Which wasn't much)
Lets face if you've rented this movie your either a fan of such crude, R-rated teen humour or REALLY REALLY STUPID.
I mean if you didn't like movies like American Pie, Roadtrip etc etc than you have no business renting this movie.
And if you've liked those movies and have seen the original Dorm Daze then you'll realise that this is a sequel to a not so great movie and scale down you expectations.
BUT Being a fan of such movies and the fact that the DVD was unrated I didn't scale my expectations down to much (6/10) and popped the movie into the player.
I immediately realised that this movie would at least meet my expectations (and may be even exceed it) when I realised that this movie wasn't going to be the story of one person but is going to involve a whole lot characters. (Thus removing the single biggest mistake film makers of such movie and their sequels make, i mean come on nobody in such movies has the talent to carry a whole film on his/her shoulders, by involving many characters you are able to hide many flaws and become much more flexible).
The actors involved unfortunately look far from being teens but even then that hardly affects the movie.
The pompous British professor, the fat captain, the tyrannical dean are all caricatures and neither hamper nor enhance the film.
The film makes many attempts to revive and reinterpret old jokes such as the dead body (weekends at Bernie) etc but meets with only reasonable success.
The movie does have its moments though, the naked hanging man and the 2 scenes involving the captains wive were a absolutely hilarious and had me falling out of my seat with laughter.
The movie is ample eye candy and nudity from the extras, sadly the main stars (especially Vida Guera) do not expose. Still the chicks involved were hot and I'm not complaining.
Acting, direction etc are not really important in such movie and due to the nature of the film (many characters, plots and sub-plots) ensure that any lapses on these fronts are easily ironed out.
Even though I didn't think it were possible this movie actually had the potential to exceed expectations, but the good amount of Strictly OK scenes ensured that this movie only met my expectations.
The DVD extras were nothing special and not worth mentioning.The movie is a mixed bag and we have a few money moments, hot chicks, nudity and a couple of absolutely hilarious scenes mixed mostly with a fair amount of not so funny moments, failed attempts and over the top scenes.
In all an OK movie thats worth a rent if you are are a fan of such movies and are desperate to watch a movie of this type.
-s fair amount of OK and not so OK scenes,cast strictly OK, no nudity from the stars.
+/s caricaturish characters, DVD extras.
+s 2 absolutely hilarious scenes (especially the captains wife),a mixed bag of funny jokes.
Total 6/10( absolute and factoring in expectations)
