Roland Sharp: [after several guys greeted Barb fondly] You got some admirers on this campus here, don't you?
Barb: Now you don't be jealous, such a silly boy.
Barb: We can stop this charade and run away together.
Roland Sharp: You have a paper to write!
Barb: I know. But if I write it myself, it is just gonna be stupid.
Roland Sharp: You don't know that, because you haven't tried. And cheating is a hell of a lot worse than being stupid. Plagiarism is an academic crime. It is punishable by academic death.

Great Movie
28 February 2005 | by See all my reviews

I was skeptical of seeing Tommy Lee Jones in a comedy but it was WONDERFUL. He played such a great, cynical part and did it perfectly. The cheerleaders in the movie were a bit annoying but other than the catcalls from the immature high school boys behind us in the theater, it was tolerable. TLJ did a great job of balancing the comedy and serious parts! I give this movie two thumbs up and recommend it to anyone! I think it is awesome, too, that the University of Texas actually allowed the movie set to use their facilities and their traditions. I was also glad to see that there was not a whole lot of stereotype about Texas. It seems like every time a movie is shot in Texas or the plot is based in Texas you see people riding horses and a gun battle. Good movie. Worth the $$.
