  • Audience Reviews for Accepted. ½ National Lampoon's Animal House has a lot to answer for. Ever since John Landis' comedy became one of the biggest hits of the late-1970s, we have had to live with ...

  • Accepted has a bit of an original premise and it does take it into some unrealistic territory but it is a pretty fun comedy film. Justin Long makes a pretty solid lead and its unfortunate that he's not playing bigger roles in many movies anymore.

  • Bogged down by lazy writing and shoddy filmmaking, ACCEPTED is a raucous but pointless endeavor. Borrowing from every other college-located comedy, Steve Pink's movie is also low on originality, even though it appears to celebrate "creativity" in its low-achieving heroes.

  • I stumbled across Accepted one night and was amazed by the amount of quality content free of charge. Linda's short Q&As about different program eligibility, articles on various parts of the admission process, posts about different members of AdCom teams--Accepted is a tremendous resource.

Unfortunately, it takes its self too seriously and continuously hits us over the head with the "Losers are OK too" message. "Animal House" from which "Accepted" borrowed freely, was a more straightforward ...

  • Plugged In helps college student stand-up for his belief "Thanks for the great job you do in posting movie and television reviews online. I’m a college freshman and I recently had a confrontational disagreement with my English professor regarding an R-rated film.

  • Unfortunately for Accepted, the movie's make-the-grade spunkiness as a collegiate cut-up has been emphatically Denied. Full Review | Original Score: 2/4. Sara Michelle Fetters

  • Rejection Review It’s very difficult to receive that last rejection and face the fact that you have not been accepted at any of the medical schools you applied to. But if you're going to reapply, you need to pick yourself up and start figuring out what went wrong this time so that you'll be successful next time your apply.
