Now Playing Synopsis: A horny high-school student facing a crucial college interview is forced to relive the most stressful day of his life over and over again in this imaginative, endearingly raunchy comedy. When Rob Crabbe (John Karna) wakes up on the morning of his college-entrance interview, all he knows is that this is a day that could change his life. Not only will he find out whether or not he's been accepted into Georgetown University, but he might also lose his virginity to his smoking-hot classmate. From the moment he arrives at school and becomes the target of the volleyball team's wrath, however, the entire day spirals into disaster. When all is said and done Rob falls asleep, and awakens to find the entire nightmarish day beginning all over again. Uncertain if he may be experiencing a psychotic episode, Rob attempts to play it cool until realizing that he needs to find a way out. Although his good pals Stanley and Gabrielle do their best to provide emotional support, it's brilliant 12-year-old grade-skipper Arthur who may actually hold the secret to breaking the cycle. In the process, Rob may finally get the opportunity to turn both the day -- and his entire future -- around. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: John Karna, Craig Roberts, Katie Findlay, Alan Tudyk, Carlson Young Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
