Review: Dead Man on Campus
Dead Man on Campus
Starring: Alan Cohn, Tom Everett Scott, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, PoppyMontgomery, Lochlyn Munro, Randy Pearlstein, Corey Page, Alyson Hannigan. etc..
It's a dark comedy based on the apocryphal university policy of awarding straight A's to students whose roommates kill themselves. Two freshman dunces seek to boost their academic performance by inviting a series of depressed, self-destructive classmates to share their dormitory suite. The film casts include familiar faces such as Saved by the Bell's Zach Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) and That Thing You Do's Tom Everett Scott.
The cinematography is not all that great. The soundtrack is not bad and the plot is easy to follow.
