Review by Steve Rhodes
1 star out of 4

In Dewey Nicks's exceedingly lame comedy, SLACKERS, Dave (Devon Sawa, IDLE HANDS) and his buddies are continuing the pattern they have been in all their lives, cheating their way through school. Now in college, they devise one needlessly complicated and highly unlikely scam after another so that they don't ever have to take a test without knowing the answers in advance.

The plot has a slob named Ethan (Jason Schwartzman, RUSHMORE) blackmailing Dave to get Ethan a date with his dream girl, Angela, played by James King. King, whom you may remember as one of the main nurses in PEARL HARBOR, looks like Heather Graham but without the body. Ethan is an obnoxious stalker, who has a shrine to Angela in his room and who has made a doll out of her hair that he has been surreptitiously collecting. He is a pathetic guy without any social skills.

The movie left me with a laugh count of zero. The senior citizen whore whose naked breasts got a sponge bath, Angela's mom who liked giving oral sex to strangers and the constant fart jokes all left me unimpressed. There are those who like this brand of humor. They can have it.

SLACKERS runs 1:27. It is rated R for "strong language and sexual content, and for brief drug use" and would be acceptable for older teenagers.
