Even the characters in the movie are saying at the beginning, 'This is crazy. This will never work.' And I'm like, you know what? You're right. It never will. Not for one second. Even in a whacky comedy like this.

Here's the final mystery about Accepted: Why title a movie that so readily invites the headline Rejected as a critical riposte?
August 18, 2006
Even though it outright plagiarizes many plot points and gags of that generational classic, Accepted can't make the leap from contrived to genuine comedy.
August 18, 2006
Go right ahead and skip this one at the Cineplex. You've got my word: It won't be on the final.
August 18, 2006
If you can lighten up for an hour and a half, the film delivers one good laugh after another.
August 18, 2006
Too bad what begins as a cheerfully irreverent comedy in the tradition of Animal House gets all pious when it slams fraternity culture at neighboring Harmon College.
August 18, 2006
Half-witted it may be, but as back-to-school time-killers go, Accepted's right on the edge of acceptable.
August 18, 2006
A campus comedy that's as dull as bong water, Accepted is like the product of a community college filmmaking class, remedial division.
August 18, 2006
Like its underachieving protagonist, Steve Pink's teen comedy Accepted flashes just enough charm to get by but is too lazy to really make anything of itself.
August 18, 2006
The hijinks in Accepted are as wild as a sixth-grade prom.
August 18, 2006
Accepted Or, Ferris Bueller gets his B.A. In this amiable but undernourished campus comedy.
August 18, 2006
Too much of the plot is eaten up with clichd assaults on a stodgy mainstream college and its pretty, gel-afflicted frat boys, who care waaayyy less about the liberal arts than whacking around pledges with a wooden spanker.
August 18, 2006
Give the new college comedy Accepted half credit for having the gumption to marry two previously unrelated, seminal classics in American arts and letters.
August 18, 2006
Go to school and do your best, but check out Accepted before you go just as a reminder of the glory of rebellious foolishness.
August 18, 2006
Like a mediocre high school transcript, the movie has the foundations, but it skimps on the extracurriculars.
August 18, 2006
Not content to go for cheap laughs, the movie ultimately tries to wave a banner for the slacker ethos, something about the value of free expression.
August 18, 2006
Accepted cannot handle its pretensions toward social commentary.
August 18, 2006
Sublimely stupid, this collegiate farce plays like a cross between Animal House and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.
August 18, 2006
Accepted is trying to be a new species of Animal House, but at least that 1978 comedy had no pretensions of being more than a boisterous spoof of college life.
