When the weight of rejection begins to set in after being denied entry to every college he has applied to, a high school burnout attempts to placate his mom and dad and win the heart of his dream girl by scheming with his friends to create a fake university in a hilarious comedy of artificial education directed by Steve Pink and starring Justin Long. Bartleby "B" Gaines (Long) is a high school senior whose street smarts just never seemed to translate into the classroom, and whose bad luck in love has left him pining for the unattainable Monica (Blake Lively). When Bartleby and his rebellious crew of outcasts find the frequent college rejection letters they have all been receiving bringing endless grief from their disappointed parents, they soon band together to create the fictional South Harmon Institute of Technology. After creating a believable façade in an abandoned psychiatric hospital, employing the talents of a close friend's brilliantly subversive uncle (Lewis Black) to pose as the dean, and creating a phony website in order to sell the school to their parents, Bartleby and friends soon realize that all of their hard work has paid off in ways than they never imagined. With a variety of college rejects attempting to enroll in classes at the ersatz university and the skepticism of some privileged students from a nearby college drawing unwanted attention to the South Harmon Institute of Technology, Bartleby and friends find their ruse becoming ever more difficult to maintain.~Jason Buchanan
Came out in 2006 . The same year the Blu Ray format was introduced. 15 years later Mill Creek Entertainment has finally released the Justin Long comedy Accepted on Blu Ray. So I’m guessing 2036 we’ll get a 4K treatment by this rate. Doesn’t matter because this a great looking Blu Ray. Package came on time and no damage.
I love this movie. Lots of funny moments. Reasonably well acted. Some bigger stars before they were bigger stars are in this. I recommend getting this if you like Justin Long, and the rest of the cast. You'll be glad you did.
Accepted is a funny comedy about students who don't get accepted into College so they make up their own College. Justin Long and Jonah Hill are great actors and really funny in this movie. I highly recommend this movie.
I enjoyed this movie while in high school, had a bunch of laughs throughout the film. It's been a while since I've seen it, but definitely worth another viewing. At least for the mid 2000's nostalgia that I feel.
Glad to see it re-released on blu-ray rather than being stuck to a streaming/digital format or a defunct format (HD-DVD),
