Two flunkies launch their own university when no others will accept them.

Academics were never a priority for Bartleby Gaines (Justin Long), at least not until his parents insist that he enrolls in college.  While the teenager loathes the idea, he begins applying to different schools, yet each of them rejects Bartleby.  He launches a fictional university anddrafts an acceptance letter, complete with an official school logo and letterhead.When his parents want to visit the campus, however, Bartleby's plan seems like it will derail.

Or maybe not.Gaines discovers an abandoned mental hospital and begins renovating it.  On opening day the school is a success – perhaps too much of a success.

Filmed under the constraints of a $23 million budget, Accepted garnered $38 million worldwide and earned two Teen Choice Award nominations.
