Editor's Note
SLACKERS is a knee-slappng addition to the teen gross-out comedy genre. Directed by former fashion photographer Dewey Nicks and written by AMERICAN PIE 2 scribe David H. Steinberg, this raunchy and irreverent farce takes many of its cues from the original coed comedy ANIMAL HOUSE, and also clearly shows the raunchy influence of THERE'S SOMETHING ABOUT MARY. Dave (Devon Sawa), Jeff (Michael C. Maronna), and Sam (Jason Segal) are seniors at Holden University who have conned and cheated their way through four years of college and are prepared to cheat on their final exam before graduation. However, a severely eccentric nerd who calls himself "Cool" Ethan (RUSHMORE's Jason Schwartzman in an eerily brash role) blackmails them, threatening to have them expelled unless they help him get the girl of his dreams. Of course, the smooth-talking slackers promptly agree to Ethan's demands, not realizing the severity of his obsession with Angela (James King), a brainy and beautiful classmate. What at first seems like an easy task for the amoral ladies men quickly becomes more complicated as Dave falls for Angela himself. SLACKERS includes some outlandish performances from Laura Prepon as Angela's sex-obsessed roommate and a startling cameo from 1950s screen siren Mamie Van Doren, but the action is propelled by the freakishly funny Jason Schwartzman, whose band, Phantom Planet, provides the film's music.

Professional Reviews

"...While Sawa has an unpolished, Everyboy-ish presence that makes him a likeable leading man in his own right, nothing can prevent the hilariously eccentric Schwartzman from running away with the show..." 01/01/2002 p.57

Movieline's Hollywood Life
"...[Featuring] clever writing and sprightly acting....Schwartzman brings a unique spin to stock situations....It's a comic triumph..." 02/01/2002 p.40-1
