Teen films often plumb the depths of good taste, but rarely do they hit rock bottom like this one. Outrage and amorality have long been staples of the genre - especially since the success of
- but it's a fine line between chucklesome grossness and unfunny crassness. Date-rape drugs and under-age sex are just two of the areas mined for so-called mirth as callow country kid Jason Biggs desperately bids to be accepted by his boorish, boozy and sex-obsessed roommates at a big-city college. Meanwhile, college professor Greg Kinnear is having an affair with struggling student - and the love of his life - Mena Suvari. Although the film is slickly made and adequately acted, with American beauty Suvari proving she not only looks good but can act as well, the surface style can't mask the fact that
leaves a very nasty taste in the mouth.
A hard-working college student is branded a loser by his roommates, who promptly oust him from their group. When he helps a girl deal with an unpleasant drugs-related experience, he falls madly in love with her - but she only has eyes for a professor. Comedy, starring Jason Biggs, Mena Suvari, Greg Kinnear, Zak Orth, Thomas Sadoski and Dan Aykroyd.
