If only the school in question taught scriptwriting!

Here, in a sort-of comedy short on laughs and invention, Long starts his own fictional college after being rejected by the many real ones he’s tried to get into. When other failures want to join in he rents an old building and the fun starts… well, actually it doesn’t even get to first base.

It’s a run-of-the-mill nerd’s tale which goes heavy on the school name: The South Hardin Institute of Technology. Think about it, but don’t waste too much time over it.

Star Rating: 1/5
