Dead Man's Curve told the wickedly black story of two students plotting to use a roommate's suicide to pass their exams. Dead Man on Campus is essentially a lighter version of the same story. Pitched at a young teen audience, this has Tom Everett Scott and Mark-Paul Gosselaar on the verge of being kicked out of school because of low grades. When they discover a clause in the school constitution saying they will get automatic A's if a roommate commits suicide, they set about finding a suitably depressed person to share with - a task that turns out to be more difficult than they imagined. It's amiably played, but Alan Cohn's direction lacks bite.


Two college layabouts learn the room-mates of students who commit suicide are automatically awarded top grades in all subjects, and begin trying to identify the classmate most likely to end it all. Comedy, starring Tom Everett Scott, Mark-Paul Gosselaar and Poppy Montgomery.
