the story aren't as funny as i expected when i watched the preview in television...it is funny but it didn't make me laugh whole heartedly..i'm not satisfied.. i won't watch it if i could turn back the time..
Wow, I just watched this movie, I know it has been out for awhile. But wow this is a very good movie. I laughed my ass off through the whole movie. Actually a pretty good idea for a movie! Loved it! I hope there is a second one. I haven't laughed that much at a movie for awhile. If people think that this isn't a funny or good movie they are wrong.
Hey! I LOVED The movie ACCEPTED!!!! Its a really great movie!! You guys did an AWSOME job!!! I wish there was a real college like that!! Its Awsome!!!! And Justin Long is FUCKING HOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am in the middle of watching Accepted for the 3rd time in a row. It is not so much that this movie is funny (and it is) but I find it inventive, creative, IT IS THE SHIT!!!!!! It is one of those things that I, personally, have always wanted to do, create a school centered around the student. Many things can be learned from this movie. It is some straight up fun!!!
Some of the actors seem to be a little under practiced but that is to be expected with a movie of this kind (It doesn't really take anything away from the quality of the movie though). I have, and am, thoroughly enjoying this move and I highly recommend it. I give it 4.5 of 5 Stars
If only schools could really be more like that...not that extreme, maybe, but still...wouldn't we all do a little better in our lives if we were asked "what do WE want to learn?" instead of having the school system tell us?!! I mean, a lot of jobs don't require college, including writing a novel (which is what I'm planning on doing), but most of us (including me) still want to go to college. It sounds crazy, but I really enjoyed this movie - it was inspiring and hilarious all at once!!!
it was good..but highly improbable...which kind of takes the fun out of it...our education system isnt remotely liberal enough...and infact,shouldnt be so, to even considering a sham of an institute as such even a probationary accreditation!....its proposterous...
...funny movie though...and at the end of the day,that is what it is..a movie!
This movie was so ill! I was constantly laughin, an Justin Long (the dude with the sign) did a great job. If you stopped laughing for a minute, the philosophy behind SHIT is really deep. College should be a no-brainer for everybody. But not everyone can go to college, and not everyone can get accepted. So what about them? There really should be a SHIT. An I know I'd transfer in a heartbeat!
It's good to see it was so well received. If a court jester could make fun of the king to call attention to a problem there is no reason a funny movie can't have a serious message. Industrial age schools are screwed up.
SOUTH HARMON DOES EXIST!!!!!!!!! Check out this! GOOGLE: BASTIET!
The movie IS great! BUT this school should be a choice! The educational system as it is SUCKS!
This movie gets that point across very effectively. ANYONE who has attended college knows that feeling of sitting and listening to a mindless lecture that rambles on and on, JUST IMAGINE THE DIFFERENCE if you were attentively listening to something you had a great interest in that WOULD ACTUALLY BE USEFUL TO YOU!
WE NEED SOUTH HARMON!!!!! I WANNA PARTY WITH THOSE GUYS! :)
I just applied, interviewed, and got rejected to a very competitive graduate program. After spending so much time and money and working so hard it is frustrating to be barricaded by a bunch of suits. A graduate school for shit heads like me would make a nice second movie.
MAN I WANNA B A S.H.I.T. HEAD I WENT TO LOOK UP SOUTH HARMON TO C IF IT IZ A REAL COLLEGE I LOVED THA MOVIE GREAT..... IN ROCK UR FACES OF 340 WE LISTEN TO THA MUSIC AND LYRICS......AND ROCK OUR FACES OFF...LOL
actually South Harmon Institute of Technology is a school located in Canada. It's a school for radio and TV Broadcasting and Journalism. Although is nothing like the movie. It was funny to see a similar logo and campus. The building in the movie, actually resembled one on campus.
i recorded this movie through my DVR box because i thought it was a different movie so i basically saw this movie by accident, not by choice cause i really had no interest in ever seeing it but i LOVE this movie!!! i recommend anyone who HASNT seen it, to please rent it or look for it on tv! you wont be disappointed i promise! my boyfriend even liked it and we have 2 TOTALLY dif tastes in movies, so i guess thats how you know this is a movie EVERYONE'LL be sure to love!
I love this movie. A friend told me about it and it rocks. I'd totally go there!
I was sad to read about the horrible reviews and here in Aus it went straight to DVD but I have no idea why. It was really funny and I watched it twice in a row. Only thing that bugged me was figuring out why Justin Long looked so familiar. Duh. He's the mac ad guy. Now I'm totally happy.
Great movie! High recommendation.
Funny thing is that my high school was kind of like South Harmon. I went to a charter school so it was very liberal, and we had a lot of control on what we learned not to this extent, but like it. And we also had to fight to keep our school open, when I was a freshman, because people didn't like the freedom we had.
Just watching this movie again and felt it was heartwarming. It embodies alternative learning styles and epitomized critical pedagogy. I have a PhD and would like for my classes to be more hands on but unfortunately, I am constrained by the politics of higher education. Tomorrow, I intend to start using some "unorthodox" methods of education!
Brilliant film, really enjoyed it. Had its funny moments and had a good message to it. At the end of the day, whats wrong with learning what you want to learn without being dictated to about what you "should" be.
Whats with the National Kick Out The Brits Day lol, good think im in the UK so I cant get kicked out! =P
This Movie Was The Best!! I Wish These Are The Schools today!! I Wanna be a SHIThead. I also loved american pie beta house. i wish that sumday schools would be like that. and I Will pay 4 the 4 semesters in advance!!! NICE MOVIE anyway. just hoping there is S.H.I.T. around the world!!
def an "out of the norm" movie as far as the college scene goes. being a college student myself i have to say if there was a place like this i would transfer in a heartbeat! a lot of truths in this video punctuated by lots of laughs is what i got out of it. a must-see for those in or graduates of college
this story is fucking SHIT...i like it.the way your create the colleague is fun,awesome.this is brand new story for teenagers among the world.i wish this institution is real,cause i want to be there someday!
This school is real. It exists already. I have been enrolled in a non traditional, informal graduate program for the last 6 years and my doctoral work is centered around winning a muti-millon dollar lottery jackpot. My curriculum has involved weight lifting, music, martial arts, tennis, baseball, basketball, cooking, skateboarding, poetry, song writing, knowing thyself, sorcery, fashion, physics, philosophy, loving, and the list goes on.
The school exists within, and when I complete my "phd" the school will exist on the outside as "The Renaissance Institute of People near Pacifica Y'all" T.R.I.P.P.Y
this movie is veryyy cool i loved it but i loved more the fuckin school and is wierd because i really dont like going to school xD soo yeh i wishh there was a school like that i will totaly do in that school :) well Cya guys and pleas built that awesome school pleas....!!
