After receiving rejection letters from eight colleges, Bartleby Gaines (Justin Long) and his slacker friends fool their parents into thinking they've been accepted at the South Harmon Institute of Technology, a university of their own invention. The only problem is, the boys have somehow managed to attract a freshman class of rejects just like them. Can the South Harmon coeds compete in a battle of wits with students from a neighboring college?

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the movie's premise involves students creating a "sham" university and lying to parents and authorities to make a facility for the classes they want to take (which include references to drugs). The made-up school's name is South Harmon Institute of Technology (you can guess the visible acronym). Characters frequently use this word (at least 40 times). The fake dean uses especially colorful language. Students drink beer, smoke cigarettes, and talk about drugs and sex (language includes slang for genitals and sex acts). Stereotypes abound.

Sexual Content

Several masturbation jokes; gags about awkward college boys lusting after girls; references to sex organs and one art student makes a "fertility" statue with a huge erection.


One student wants to learn how to make a "shank out of his toothbrush" while another teaches himself to "blow up stuff" with his mind (some comic explosions).


At least one f-word; frequent profanity ("s--t," "hell," "damn it," p---y", "a--hole").

Social Behavior

Students make up a college, lie to their parents, and celebrate their "independence" with lots of partying.


Repeated shots of Mac laptops; other brief mentions of products include Adidas.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Much beer drinking by students; parents drink liquor; some pot smoking and references; drug-related jokes and language.
