A surprisingly sharp comedy that manages to pay homage to classic comedies like Animal House while delivering a lot of laughs.

The movie works on the pure energy of its straight-faced silliness.

Any movie that lets the Daily Show's Lewis Black, as the school's ad-hoc dean, rant at will about consumerism and foul-mouthed freethinking definitely knows its S.H.I.T. from shinola.

It's merely the latest entry (and a regrettably PG-13 rated one at that) in the "slobs vs. snobs" comedy subgenre that dates back to the far superior Animal House.

Listen, while I wish the writers would have been able to keep their momentum up and avoid a few dry spells, there is more than enough going on to the positive these flaws end up becoming fairly moot.

Could possibly gain Frat Pack pledge Justin Long his own acceptance.

Slackers, Rejoice! Makes the comedy honor roll for being inventive and riotously funny.

I went in expecting that "Accepted" would flunk its PG-13 comedy course within minutes. Was I ever surprised to discover that it's sometimes clever, and surprisingly gentle -- a formula to be sure, yes, but an enjoyable one all the same.

You have to cheer a film that chooses the Ramones' "Blitzkrieg Bop" as its anthem and not something by Matchbox 20.

...restores your faith in low budgets and dumb ideas. It reminds you both can be fun.

Nothing happens in this film that you don't expect to happen, and it's that lack of originality that causes the film to drag in spots. But it's still a perfectly fine, little film whose earnestness and cast chemistry ultimately won me over.

Think about it too much and the whole thing falls apart; sit back, relax, and don't analyze it and the movie is pretty darn entertaining.

If you can lighten up for an hour and a half, the film delivers one good laugh after another.

The jokes are often sharp. Also, the scheme is appealing.

Although it's more amusing than laugh-out-loud funny, Accepted has a good-natured irreverence and ragged charm, thanks to a spirited ensemble cast of newcomers led by Justin Long.

Accepted feels a little like a Montessori Real Genius. It's one of the few genuinely funny comedies in a dismal movie summer.

A 'teen' movie that operates at a higher level of wit and energy than most of the so-called adult comedies now onscreen...
