Not one of the best made movies, but it gives a lot of laughs while showing the perfect college fantasy--college being one big party!
16 March 1999 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I thought this movie was great! As a college student it's nice to see someone's fantasy of what college should be like--a trip to the beach with nothing on your mind but having a good time. Tim Robbins is hysterical in his role, as is the rest of the cast--why don't we hear of it more?
