    Synopsis


    Slackers
    Three lifelong cheaters wise up in this gross-out college comedy, which marks the second feature role for Rushmore star Jason Schwartzman. It's the last semester of senior year for roomies Dave (Devon Sawa), Sam (Jason Segel), and Jeff (Michael C. Maronna), a trio of twenty-somethings whose enthusiasm for higher learning is matched only by their enthusiasm for root canals performed without the aid of anesthesia. As such, their entire collegiate existence has been an elaborate series of cons and scams designed to plagiarize essays, skip midterms, and covertly manipulate bell curves. When deranged geek Ethan (Schwartzman) -- who harbors a psychotic fixation for a flaxen-haired co-ed named Angela (James King) -- gets wind of their scheming, he blackmails Dave and the gang into contriving a date between him and his crush. But as Dave cozies up to Angela, he realizes that no amount of scheming can hide the fact that he's the one that's truly in love. Slackers went by a number of working titles while in production at the ill-fated upstart Destination Films; when Destination went belly-up, the film sat on the shelf for over a year before being picked up for release by Sony's Screen Gems division. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi

      great indie b-movie flick

      Its one of those movies like Sorority Boys, Can't Hardly Wait, 10 Things I Hate About You. Not plot-wise. But that it will never be a hit like Wedding Crashers or Forgetting Sarah Marshall. But Jason Segel, Devon Sawa, Jason Schwartzman and the dude from PETE and Pete. Plus the love interest is great, can't think of her name though. But its shot well, the music is great, good acting, lots of funny lines, "Cool Ethan" is hilariously creepy. And his two song that Schwarztmanwrote for the movie are pretty epic. Don't know what that guy above me is talking about. this is one of my cult favorite movies.

      I loveeeee this movie!! I saw it a while back on comedy central and I thought it was just hilarious. Jason Earles is def. my favorite in this movie even though he's not a main main character...and the guy from the oldschool Nickelodeon show Pete and Pete is in it too which makes it fantastic! If you like witty crude humor this is definiteellyyyyy the movie for you!

      I was looking for movies from my college days (1999-2004) and this one came on TV. I had to get it! It’s so stupid, but hilarious. If you’re from the same generation, you will probably appreciate this!

      Bad Movie

      This is one of the worst films I have ever seen. It is a movie about cheaters who nearly get caught, the end. No good reason to see this film.

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend
