High Schoolers with nothing to do.

My Thoughts:
Accepted is about a group of kids who can't get into college so they decide to make up a college to please their parents. Soon they start getting intuition checks and need to open a real college, so they do. Or at least they try to. It's a really strange college. Then some people from the real college up the road come and try to by the fake college. They won't sell so the true college makes them go to the Board of Education for the state where they have to prove they can be a real college.
We watched this movie on the way to the Herr's Potato Chip Factory on a bus. Usually that would mean it would just play in the background and no one would pay any attention to it. But that was not the case. I started off ignoring it, but then somehow it managed to catch my attention and I ended up watching the whole thing. The whole bus was silent because we were all watching it - a rare thing to come across with a bus full of High Schoolers. It was a good movie. It was funny. It was interesting. But it cussed a lot, so that's something to be aware of.
