Jason Biggs plays a small-town college freshman in New York
City whose roommates toss him out of the dorm, and Mena Suvari is an equally
down-on-her-luck student who's being jerked around by her arrogant
boyfriend/professor. Guess who becomes a winning couple? Also with Greg Kinnear, Thomas
Sadoski, Art Alexakis, Darrin Brown, Twink Caplan, Greg Eklund, Craig Montoya, Zak Orth,
Lauren Schaffel, Jimmi Simpson, David Spade and Egidio Tari. [1:45]
SEX/NUDITY 4 - Several instances of sexual innuendo (including references to
male genitalia, one-night stands and lesbianism) and several kisses (one is passionate).
In a post-coitus scene, a shirtless man rolls off of a woman wearing a bra; we see the man
in his boxers and the woman in her bra and panties as they get dressed. A man grabs a
woman, pulls her onto the bed and begins kissing her. A man thrusts his hips and slaps his
backside several times while dancing. A man picks up a toothbrush that has a used condom
draping over it. We see several scantily clad women dancing and serving drinks in a strip
club (we briefly glimpse one woman's bare buttocks; also, a customer asks a server for her
underwear); we also see a woman wearing a bikini in a photography studio (during the
scene, a man tells another woman she can undress for her pictures in a small room -- she
presumably does not). In the background of a couple scenes we see magazine covers
featuring scantily clad women. In a museum we see two paintings of bare-breasted women,
one painting of a nude woman and a nude male statue.
VIOLENCE/GORE 3 - A man punches another in the face and slams him into a
book shelf; also, one swings a laptop at the other. A man falls down some steps but isn't
hurt and a woman pushes a man. A man accidentally steps on a dog's paw. A woman at a party
begins losing consciousness, she's later discovered unconscious while leaning against a
toilet, then she's taken to the hospital (where we learn her stomach has been pumped) and
sleeps for quite a while afterwards; it's implied Rohypnol (the "date rape
drug") was slipped into her drink. In a bar scene, we learn that a few men have
slipped what they thought were Rohypnol pills into women's drinks (the pills were actually
Gingko).We see blood on a man's forehead in a hospital waiting room. We see a newborn
kitten enclosed in a membrane for awhile while two people cut it free.
PROFANITY 5 - One F-word, some anatomical and scatological references, two
mild obscenities, and several insults. [profanity glossary]
