Our Score
Executive producer Ivan Reitman updates the humour of his 1978 production National Lampoon's Animal House here, but with middling results. There are some raunchy and hilarious moments as college student Breckin Meyer races from New York to Texas with his friends to avert a disaster that would ruin his relationship with his girlfriend, but the movie is a jumbled mess. Several lengthy and redundant subplots keep diverting attention from the central story, and the main characters come across as stereotypes sharing the same "wild" college guy personality, not as individuals. The exception is Tom Green, whose insane character is as unforgettable and hilarious as John Belushi's Bluto in Animal House, yet he's put in a supporting role that doesn't give him a chance to stretch himself.


Four students hit the road, heading off on a foolhardy mission to retrieve an embarrassing video mistakenly sent to an unsuspecting girlfriend - but it is not long before things go wrong and they end up having several nasty scrapes. Comedy, starring Tom Green as the tale's narrator, with Breckin Meyer, Seann William Scott, Amy Smart, Paulo Costanzo and DJ Qualls.
