You don't need a degree from Harvard to realize director James Toback (Black and White, Love and Money) has started repeating himself. Rehashing his favorite themes of gambling, weird sex, drugs and race relations, he sends generally promising actor Adrian Grenier on a meandering and unmoving journey through the halls of the Cambridge campus.
When his parents' house is hit by a hurricane, B-ball player Grenier accepts a deal to throw a game for his girlfriend, mob boss daughter Sarah Michelle Gellar. She's being investigated by FBI agents Eric Stoltz and Rebecca Gayheart, who play bizarre bedroom games with professor Joey Lauren Adams. Then everyone takes acid. The long-delayed flick's weak story and poor casting shows that Gellar is too cute to be Corleone; Adams is too high-pitched to be tenured; and Gayheart is still too whatever to care about. Don't be a fool, stay away from this school.
