Julie: Cool.

Not a bad first movie
8 May 2008 | by sid2286See all my reviews

This is the first, independent film by Broken Lizard. The people who brought you such films as Super Troopers and Beerfest. This movie is a whole different kind of humor ( more like Clerks than their other movies).

This movie relies less on slap stick and more on humorous situations that are not completely different from the normal college experience. The characters are not as wacky, but each one is more heart felt and real. And the story moves at a much slower pace than their other films but it is definitely worth a watch.
