So I got tickets to an advance screening for wed night. Not the first time but it was the first time I went.
It was really cool because it was a private screening and everyone was excited. The movie started and there was only one preview for the Outkast musical.
Ok to the movie. If you don't know what it's about, the basic plot is about a senior in high school who gets rejected by every college he applied to, even his backups. His parents are ****ed and disappointed. He makes up a fake school (makes a website and acceptance letter), parents are happy. Then they can't wait to visit..so he has to lease a building etc etc.
anyways the site is functional and hundreds of other rejected kids get in and the snowball gets bigger.
simple movie, simple message. It's a little sappy at parts (we are different but special) but still hits home to anyone who doesnt know where they're going in life.
As for humour, it was really funny. There's the sarcastic best friend and the stoner and the over achiever girl.
Overall, good light summer movie.
