Dropping a metric ton of acid while getting chased by the Mafia and the FBI: it's all just a day in the life of Harvard student Alan Jensen (Grenier). Meanwhile, the busy scholar/basketball player is also juggling two girlfriends: a mobster's daughter/cheerleader (Gellar), and older philosophy professor (Adams), as well as the throwing of a basketball game. Stoltz and Gayheart play the mobster's bookies with a twist. Inspired by his own '60s acid trip, director Toback's modern coming-of-age comedy is long on mayhem-inspired action and dialogue but short on characters to care about and isn't as fun as it sounds. The all-too-real depiction of a bad trip alone, however, is worth a look.
