Dead Man On Campus | 1998 | R | - 4.4.6

Two college roommates (Tom Everett Scott and Mark-Paul Gosselaar) try to find a clinically depressed third roommate because - supposedly - when a roommate commits suicide the remaining roommates automatically get straight A's.

SEX/NUDITY 4 - Sexual innuendo, including references to masturbation, voyeurism, lust, homosexuality and oral sex. Sex is implied in two occasions, but nothing is actually seen. A couple of women are seen in their bras and a man's buttocks are shown. A couple begin to undress and get into bed preparing for sex, but nothing is seen. A man unzips his pants, but nothing is shown.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man accidentally sets a woman's hair on fire. A man is hit in the face with a chalkboard. A man is dragged by a rope and a man is kicked in the groin. A man shoots at police cars and a man's shirt is bloody after he's been shot. An attempted suicide by overdose. A corpse is seen during an autopsy (the chest has been opened). We hear a man urinating and a man unknowingly drinks urine. A couple of men jump from a moving car and a man plays chicken with several cars causing them to run off the road. A hand pops out of the ground in a dream sequence. Some property damage.

LANGUAGE 6 - About 16 F-words and a profane hand gesture, 10 scatological terms, a dozen anatomical references, several sexual references, a dozen mild obscenities, insults and racial remarks.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
