Consensus: Like its characters who aren't able to meet their potential, Accepted's inconsistent and ridiculous plot gets annoying, despite a few laughs.

Even though it outright plagiarizes many plot points and gags of that generational classic, Accepted can't make the leap from contrived to genuine comedy.

Accepted is a poorly constructed college comedy that tries too hard at being the next Animal House. The difference is, is that Animal House was actually funny,… More

Pretty inconsistent in the quality of its humor, but when it's funny, it's downright hilarious. Justin Long is great as always, and the perfect pick… More
