Theatrical report

Slackers is one of those USA university movies about the great dream of getting by without working and getting a degree without studying. As if.

When I watch one of these movies I study the plot to see if it's possible: with Slackers it's not likely to happen in this day and age but you never know. It's an old story but still pretty interesting - the old ones are the best. No comedy will ever get a higher score than this.
