Roger Ebert  Full Review
Poor "The laugh in "Stealing Harvard" comes early, when we see the name of the company where the hero works...This is as lax and limp a comedy as I've seen in a while, a meander through worn-out material.''

TV Guide Online  Full Review
Poor "Two idiots embark on a life of crime to help a deserving teenager attend Harvard in this lowbrow, if relatively sweet-natured, comedy.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

As is quite common with these silly teen movies the opinions are very mixed. In fact they are so mixed there's really no way I can help you make a decision on seeing this movie except to say that your chances of enjoying "Stealing Harvard" are pretty slim.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
This is not a movie for adults! Some of the attempts at humor worked for everyone, but most did not appeal to adults. The younger people in the audience did found the movie somewhat funnier. When Tom Green was not on the screen it was actually a fairly decent story. But when he showed up it got way too silly. Even the younger audience members didn't respond to most of his attempts to be funny.

I can't recommend "Stealing Harvard" to anyone except maybe Tom Green fans. I seriously doubt that even the target audience of teens and young adults will feel they got their monies worth from this movie.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Duff (Tom Green) and John (Jason Lee) are best friends, but couldn't be more different. Duff is a confirmed under-achiever and a lifelong bad influence on John. John is a practical, hard working guy who only wants to marry his longtime girlfriend Elaine (Leslie Mann).

Elaine and John have vowed to marry once they save $30,000 for their dream house. After years of struggle, John and Elaine can finally afford to walk down the aisle and into their dream house until John's sister Patty (Megan Mullally) calls with the unbelievable news that his niece Noreen has been accepted at Harvard University. Wedding bells are silenced as Patty reminds John of his promise to pay for his niece's college tuition, which cost $29,879 and is due in two weeks!

Unable to tell his girlfriend, John turns to his friend Duff to help him make an additional $30,000 in two weeks. Duff, who is no fan of Elaine's, convinces John to make a short-term commitment to petty crime. John's life quickly unravels as each of Duff's hare-brained schemes spin out of control.
