Monday's Movie: With Honors

With Honors (1994)

From the Movie: "I'm a bum. But...I'm a Harvard bum," says Simon Wilder (Academy Award winner Joe Pesci), who lives by his wits on that campus. There he meets senior Monty Kessler (Brendan Fraser), who would have nothing to do with the homeless man if not for one thing: Simon has the only copy of Monty's senior thesis! He'll return it for food, a place to stay and more: one page - for one favor - at a time. A new life is beginning for Monty and his roomies (Moira Kelly, Patrick Dempsey, Josh Hamilton). They're about to learn that if you want a degree, go to Harvard. If you want to learn about life, see Simon Wilder in the warm and winning With Honors.

From Me: This was a good movie, it couldn't be anything less with Brenden Fraser starring in it :) With Honors has a great storyline and it really draws you in - the movie ends well and I love what Simon teaches the kids about caring; he really grew on me by the end. No "bad" scenes either, which is great.
