Movie Summary

Director:
Alan Cohn
Released:
1998
Rating:
R
With talented young stars, cutting-edge music and a full enrollment of laughs, Dead Man on Campus makes the grade. Tom Everett Scott and Mark-Paul Gosselaar play new roommates Josh and Cooper. Josh is the studious type, Cooper's the nothing-succeeds-like-excess guy--a lifestyle that rubs off on Josh and soon has both in danger of flunking out. But there's a catch: a clause in the schools charter awards A's to students who suffer the trauma of a roommate's suicide. So Josh and Cooper set out to find a suicidal roomie who is, uh, Most Likely To Succeed. There's no time to lose. It's a matter of life and death. And comedy.

    A predictably dumb movie made for very young audiences, playing to youth's love of excess and loaded with masturbation jokes.

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Under Alan Cohn's straight-on direction, the film, written by various hands, huffs and puffs mightily just to keep a strenuously labored plot going.
