  1. It's one of the few genuinely funny comedies in a dismal movie summer.
  2. Accepted's winning dumbness and breezy bons mots save it from the pit.
  3. 60
    An absurd little trifle, but it does have a kind of buoyant, punky energy.
  4. The humour in Accepted is maddeningly safe.
  5. 50
    Even if you're willing to overlook the preposterous plot holes in its premise, Accepted pushes its luck in its final half-hour.
  6. 12
    A campus comedy that's as dull as bong water, Accepted is like the product of a community college filmmaking class, remedial division.

    This movie was hilarious. I though it would mostly be funny for Lewis Black, but it was funny everywhere else.

    I put this movie in expecting to see an American Pie knock-off that I was going to hate. I was pleasantly surprised to find an amusing comedyI put this movie in expecting to see an American Pie knock-off that I was going to hate. I was pleasantly surprised to find an amusing comedy with a very good point: our current system of higher entertainment sucks. If you're one of those yuppies who supports college 100% and believe a future without it is impossible, pass this by. If your one of the people who got rejected from college, or went to college and realized how ridiculous it is, you'll love this movie. Expand

    Accepted was one of the only movies i had to watch for a couple months back in 07 so i have watched it plenty of times and even though theAccepted was one of the only movies i had to watch for a couple months back in 07 so i have watched it plenty of times and even though the comedy isnt that great i still enjoy this movie a lot even to this day i still laugh and have a good time watching it. I know people dont like Justin Long but i dont think he is all that bad at least thats me. The Concept was nice and it was good that they put a little heart into it maybe if they had put a little more it could have been a good movie rather then a average one. Lewis Black was Lewis Black so he was the best part of the movie every thing he said had me cracking up he is just so hilarious.

    Overall i give it 6.5 "Ask Me About My Wiener!!"

    While the idea of progressive education is one that I'd like to see more of, it doesn't come from a movie this preposterous and oddly preachyWhile the idea of progressive education is one that I'd like to see more of, it doesn't come from a movie this preposterous and oddly preachy when it gets to be serious.

    Typical brain-dead comedy perfectly suited for anyone currently failing college or regretting the fact that they never attended. Cliche inTypical brain-dead comedy perfectly suited for anyone currently failing college or regretting the fact that they never attended. Cliche in almost every regard, with a horrible leading actor, and a boring "rebellious young teen vs. old white men" philosophy that seals its place in the worst of the worst. Expand
