The movie I’d like to talk about is a comedy called Accepted. My favorite actor Justin Long stars in it playing a boy named Bartleby who’s got bad grades in school and couldn’t get into any university after graduation/he receives rejection letters from all of the colleges to which he applies, including those with high acceptance rates.
In order to save his face and gain approval from his strict father, he creates a non-existent university with the help of his friends. They renovate an abandoned mental hospital to make it look like a college campus. And he designs their uniform and logo as well. To make the “college” seem legitimate, Bartleby convinces his friend to set up a website for the school. Everything looked so real! The aim of all this is to trick his parents into believing that he has actually got accepted by a college. But their plan backfires when they realize the website they designed is functional, and all the applicants are accepted automatically. So they had no other choice but to continue this big lie. They end up enrolling hundreds of other rejected students, who are considered as losers, weirdoes and couldn’t fit in anywhere else.
The study atmosphere in that school is pretty awesome. He has the students create their own curricula. Students write down what they want to learn on a giant whiteboard, ranging from the culinary arts, sculpting, meditations, to unusual courses such as psychokinesis.
But soon after, people find out this whole thing is completely fake and the university is forced to close. But in court, Bartleby makes an impassioned speech about the failures of conventional education and the importance of following one’s own passions, convincing the board to grant his school a one-year probationary accreditation to test his new system.
And of course, just like all the other comedies, it ends with a happy ending.
Anyway, it was a really hilarious movie.
