I'm immediately skeptical of any movie whose own website describes it as an "outrageous comedy." Outrageous, after all, is usually another word for "obnoxious." Or "terrible." >College, which follows in the footsteps of such "classics" as American Pie and Old School, is no exception. This movie might as well be called Yet Another Road Trip, because here's what it's about: A few high school nerds go to college with the slimiest of their friends to experience all of the joys of "the college visit."
