a Texas conglomerate and

that tonight’s show will be the last. Rated PG-13 (for risque humor)

ACCEPTED

Cast: Justin Long, Lewis Black

So maybe this isn’t the most original movie in the world. It’s a little like “Animal House,” a little like “Revenge of the Nerds” and a lot like “Old School.” It calls to mind elements of “Real Genius,” “National Lampoon’s Van Wilder” and “PCU,” which starred a then-unknown Jeremy Piven and seems to be playing somewhere on cable television 24 hours a day ” even though it came out in 1994. And maybe its premise isn’t the most plausible: A bunch of slackers and weirdoes form their own college, where “liberal” doesn’t even begin to describe the liberal arts education. Doesn’t matter. “Accepted” is a lot more fun than you’d expect from a comedy coming out in the dead of summer. Directed by Steve Pink from a script by Adam Cooper, Bill Collage and Mark Perez, and featuring a performance from the infinitely likable up-and-comer Justin Long, the film has a certain subversive elan that keeps it light on its feet ” until the very end, that is, when it turns self-righteous and takes itself way too seriously. Blake Lively, Jonah Hill and Lewis Black co-star. PG-13 for language, sexual material and drug content. 92 min. Two and a half stars out of four.

” Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

BARNYARD

Voices: Courteney Cox Arquette, Sam Elliot, Danny Glover, Kevin James, Andie MacDowell, Wanda Sykes

This is a lighthearted tale centering around Otis (Kevin James), a carefree party cow, who enjoys singing, dancing and playing tricks on humans. Unlike his father Ben (Sam Elliot), the respected patriarch of the farm, and Miles, the wise old mule (Danny Glover), Otis is unconcerned about keeping the animals’ human-like talents a secret. But when suddenly put in the position of responsibility, the “udderly” irresponsible cow finds the courage to be a leader. Rated PG (for some mild peril and rude humor)
