Critic Reviews of "Accepted"Ebert & RoeperAugust 21, 2006
Even the characters in the movie are saying at the beginning, 'This is crazy. This will never work.' And I'm like, you know what? You're right. It never will. Not for one second. Even in a whacky comedy like this.Toronto StarAugust 19, 2006
Here's the final mystery about Accepted: Why title a movie that so readily invites the headline Rejected as a critical riposte?Seattle TimesAugust 18, 2006
Even though it outright plagiarizes many plot points and gags of that generational classic, Accepted can't make the leap from contrived to genuine comedy.Wall Street JournalAugust 18, 2006
Go right ahead and skip this one at the Cineplex. You've got my word: It won't be on the final.San Francisco ChronicleAugust 18, 2006
If you can lighten up for an hour and a half, the film delivers one good laugh after another.Philadelphia InquirerAugust 18, 2006
Too bad what begins as a cheerfully irreverent comedy in the tradition of Animal House gets all pious when it slams fraternity culture at neighboring Harmon College.ComingSoon.netDecember 28, 2010
It has a few funny bits here and there, but they're deeply mired in the seen-it-all-beforeness of the film.Reel Film ReviewsMay 17, 2007
Sporadically entertaining but relentlessly lightweight...The Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)March 15, 2007
Though keeping worthwhile targets - like professors who want to see their most creative students fail - director Steve Pink lets his punk inspiration slide into standard school rivalries and unrelated slapstick.Film Journal InternationalMarch 01, 2007
The movie works on the pure energy of its straight-faced silliness.Film Freak CentralNovember 12, 2006
[Accepted] would be funnier with an R rating on principleViewLondonOctober 05, 2006
Average comedy that's low on jokes and doesn't quite live up to its premise, though it remains watchable thanks to a charming performance by Justin Long.
