QUICK TAKE:
Comedy: Three college friends get into a night of debauchery when one gets ridiculously drunk, and the other two have to carry him home in time for a medical-school interview.
PLOT:
The night before a big medical-school interview that his domineering father (FRANCOIS CHAU) pulled strings to set up, Jeff Chang (JUSTIN CHON) decides to go out drinking and partying to celebrate his 21st birthday. His companions are a couple of old high school buddies. Casey (SKYLAR AUSTIN) is the more responsible of the two, a straight-laced young man who is going to spend Spring Break interning at a New York investment firm. Miller (MILES TELLER), on the other hand, is a mischievous, profane, and horny undergraduate who parties hard and worries about the consequences later.

After hitting a string of bars, Jeff Chang (he is called both names throughout the movie) is so drunk that he is nearly unconscious. Casey and Miller feel responsible for getting him in that state and only want to get him back home for a few hours of sleep so that he will be fresh for his all-important interview the next morning. One problem. They don't know where his home is in a campus town of 40,000. His ID has his old address and no one seems to know him.

A night of wandering debauchery ensues involving a lot more drinking, along with run-ins with an angry Latina sorority, a wild buffalo that gets out of control, and a violent male cheerleader named Randy (JONATHAN KELTZ) who wants to kill them. Casey, meanwhile, has fallen for Randy's girlfriend, Nicole (SARAH WRIGHT), who is leaving the next day for an adventure trip in South America.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Many high school-age teens will want to work around the R rating and try and gain admission to this raunch-fest.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For crude and sexual content, pervasive language, some graphic nudity, drugs, and drinking.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
