This lively and by all accounts quite entertaining spoof filled with collegiate-style humor was made almost single-handedly by the director, scriptwriter, editor, actor, lighting designer, voiceover artist and producer Marcus van Bavel. His acting tasks encompassed over forty-five different roles. Despite a tiny budget, this film came in with a surprisingly professional feel to it. Among the skits captured are "Bachelor Kitchen," "Great Moments in Star Drek" and "Ze Undersea World of Jacques Clouseau." As might be expected from these titles, not only doesn't van Bavel take these bits too seriously, he scores points with viewers by poking a lot of fun at himself and his pretensions.
