Funny, dramatic, kind of light, but good

It's about three friends who cheat their way through everything and get blackmailed by a freak named Ethan (Shwartsman). He wants them to get him a girl that he is creepily obsessed with but she is totally out of his league. Dan ends up falling for her and Ethan videotapes them together and tries to win the girl back, but eventually we all know what happens. Just watch it, it's worth a few bucks to rent. It's not the best movie I've ever seen, but the ideas they used to cheat were really clever and funny. I've never been a cheater, but if I was I'd use some of the tactics they used here.

You don’t even know my name do you?

Definitely a “problematic” movie in every sense of the word. Like revenge or the nerds or American pie.

However if you can accept that entertainment is entertainment and turn your brain off for an hour this movie is hilarious. A lot of funny one off jokes and gross out humor. A few actors are in this before they got big like Jason Schwartzman and Laura Prepon. Overall same tone as something like saving Silverman or idle hands. Fun movie.

It fell out of your hair that way.

Not just another college movie. This movie is just strange enough to stand out from the rest and still make you laugh. I fell in love with this movie in high school and it still makes me laugh now. P.S. you can't go wrong with Jason Segel (HIMYM, Undeclared, SLC Punk, Dead Man on Campus, I Love You, Man etc.)

Strong cast

The storyline wasn't especially strong in this one but the cast is phenomenal. I love the characters and the roles they play. A young-ish Jason Segal was born for roles like these.

NO likeable characters. Story line you have seen. Going to be interesting when Dave goes home to meet the Angela's Dad and Stepmom. I guess this may be a good movie if you are high otherwise Skip it.
