There is a running joke throughout the film that Scott is bad at math and has a fear of numbers to the point where he has trouble with basic math and freaks out whenever another character uses numbers. However, in one of the very first scenes while touring Bucknell he tells Alex that you should drink one bottle of water for every bottle of beer and equates a 6 pack of beer to 6 bottles of water. In another scene, Scott mistakes a 401K account for $401,000 which means he can equate the letter "K" to equal thousand and equates 401K to 401,000. He also uses the term "86" in another scene - a term someone who has a fear of numbers, would be less than likely to use. See more »

The first two pages of reviews I read all gave this movie a one star rating. I can get that it is not the best Will Ferrell movie ever but it deserves more than a one star rating. So I'll give it a six just to balance the ratings a bit better. But I'm aware it's not a great movie. And I am a big Will Ferrell fan, as well as for Amy Poehler. So when I saw they both played in this movie I was a bit excited. A bit too over-excited when I saw the final outcome. Besides a couple good laughing moments the rest of the movie is a bit bland. The story is about okay, at least for a comedy, but it clearly lacks some convincing acting. But I don't regret watching it, like some do, I just was expecting better. I guess for watching it once it's okay, just for the couple laughs I had.
