The movie was enjoyable.

And if this film is worth watching then it's mostly because of him.

Without giving away too much of the movie, I found that the acting was good, the story was different from a "bottled, formulaic, Animal House-ish" rewrite college comedy.

But for anyone starting to see in every new movie merely echoes of its ancestors (am I the only person in the world who found "Avatar" long, tedious and way too predictable?

This film was a delight to watch, but did get slow at parts.

The pacing is very slow, especially at the beginning.

Even the secondary characters are dull.

Charlie is a bit too pathetic which gets a little tiresome.

Entertaining .

I'd say anyone remotely affiliated with University life, and an open mind, will have a lot of fun watching this movie, and an enjoyable experience.

Nevertheless, this was a very entertaining movie.

The story centers on a boring, nontenured professor at a small college, coming up for promotion, who can't get his articles published.

Enjoyable to watch, mainly for Wilson, if somewhat naughty .

The characters are trying to be odd but they are more cliché than anything else: a bigfoot hunting professor on xtc is almost childish and would fit in a highschool flick.

If there is an academy award category for the most tedious movie ever written, "Tenure" should win in a landslide.

Maybe it's the air at film festivals, but I just watched it on DVD last night (it was released at Blockbuster early)and though I was looking forward to it, found it dull, lifeless, bland, and worst of all, wrong.
