Plot Summary
College freshmen Josh (Tom Everett Scott) and Cooper (Mark-Paul Gosselaar) are more interested in hitting the bottle than in hitting the books -- and their poor grades are set to get them kicked out of school. Their only hope of passing is to find a roommate who will kill himself. That's because an oddball college code states that a suicide victim's roommates automatically get straight A's. But sharing space with a lineup of lunatics proves enough to drive both boys crazy.

    The overall premise, involving mental illness and suicide, isn't all that funny, at least not in practice, and the picture begins to seem labored and long. show more

    Unfortunately for the poor viewer trapped into sitting through this 95 minute mess, the humor is both conventional and unfunny, the script never takes any chances, and the ending is a cop-out. show more

    Dead Man on Campus, a supposed black comedy produced by MTV, is simply awful. show more

    I have a message for the high-powered critics of The New York Times, Washington Post, or any of the other stuffy, antiquated news sources...Lighten up! I realize that I don't have the same literary background or skills that you possess, but I will say that I enjoy watching alot of movies, I am coming up on my 39th birthday, and I thought Dead Man on Campus was pretty funny. Also, recognizing that I am the only 'average guy' leaving a review for this movie, most probably haven't seen it, but should. On occasion, I will still use soundbites from the movie...as spoken by Cliff..."You guys like hookers? I know this chick named Carl..." If you liked American Pie, you will enjoy Dead Man on Campus!!
