Worth Watching - April 22: College Trailer
College would be if you took Superbad, Accepted, and Old School and slammed them all into one big college comedy. I don't have much appreciation for "school" comedies anymore, but movies like Old School and Superbad are the only exceptions. Unfortunately College doesn't have the Judd Apatow touch, however I honestly think it could be pretty funny. I wasn't completely turned off by this trailer (I've seen worse). In fact, I don't think this will be the worst comedy of the summer (we already know that's Meet Dave), but all in the same, I don't think it'll be the best by far. Who knows?
I actually met one of the guy's who wrote this, Dan Callahan, at a party for Pathology in Los Angeles a few weeks ago. He was explaining that they just wanted to make a classic, down-n-dirty college movie where girls take their tops off left and right for no reason and it's all good and fun. So that's what you're getting with College and you better know that going in - don't expect anything else!

Yeah, I was overwhelmed with a sense of exhaustion watching that trailer. Oh, look, another comedy about those crazy college kids! Give it a rest.

Between "College" and "The Happening," this is shaping up to be the summer of boring movie titles.

i liked what shelby said but any how the film looks alright since the producers of waiting was on board. it might not make much money but it would be good
