Overview
Carefree class clown Marlon Browne (Corey Parker) is about to endure the most harrowing experience of his young life-getting into college-in this hilarious screwball comedy. He'll undergo the pain and torment of entrance exams, college recruiters and choosing the right school. His sympathetic admissions officer (Anthony Edwards) wants him to succeed. But before it's over, his world will be turned upside down by the girl he loves (Lara Flynn Boyle) and the two shady college prep tutors (Phil Hartman and Nora Dunn) who are milking him for all he's worth!
