Synopsis


Accepted
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, Rovi

    Best Movie Ever Made

    Although This Movie Is Highly Unlikely, it's still awesome. I obviously adore justin Long, who stars in this movie, so this movie is great for me. But that's not the only reason. I have one word for you: Glen. This character makes the movie. Without him it wouldn't be nearly as funny. Delivering lines such as "Battle Royal", You will be rolling on the floor laughing. This movie is incredible and should be part of everyone's dvd collection. And it's not just for teenagers, my parents Love this movie too!!

    I was very sceptical about this movie, expecting some usual B movie about overhormoned and never sober teens, but the movie turned out to be such a joy to watch that I decided it's worth buying. Giving the redefinition of what higher education should be and presenting it in a funny, even hillarious form. Absolutely amazing. Highly recommended to all highschoolers, college kids, their parents and everybody else

    I want to start by saying the film was very funny. Jonah Hill,Lewis Black steal the movie from Justin Long.I think Video Commentary is one the funniest and the league of "Superbad" ,"Knocked Up","40 Year Old Virgin" around. You will surprised how good the picture and sound are.Great bonus features, great cast,all around funny movie a must own.

    Funny than I originally thought

    I think I was gonna like this movie, because of the fact that there some many PG-13 movies that should be rated R. Now this movie was just great from beginning to end. If you don't like this movie than something is wrong with you. Yeah, Glen is ridiculously funny, but I think the guy that wanted to blow things up with his mind was crazier

    This movie arrived quickly, and packaged well with no damage. This movie is one that I can plug in and watch over and over again. A graduating high school student doesn't get into any of the colleges he applied for. What does he do? Makes his own, of course!

    This movie is a great for anyone to add to their dvd collection. This is our generation's verison of Animal House, it's a lot of laughs. Justin Long and Blake Livley are the rising comedic greats also for our generation. The price was amazing as well.

    Rejection has never been so funny

    I expected this one to be funny, but not as funny as it turned out to be. I found myself laughing almost the entire time. It even puts a positive spin on how the term "rejection" can be viewed in another light. Great movie

    I didn't think this movie would be funny but I was wrong. This movie is very funny and I really enjoyed it. This is a teen-party movie but unlike some other movies in this genre they are not siutable for kids.
