The Movie “Getting In” (1994)


Getting InYou’ve probably never heard of the 1994 movie Getting In but it may be one of the most underrated movies of all time. It’s obvious that this low budget flick may not have the best storyline but listen to this cast: Andrew McCarthy, Kristy Swanson, Calista Flockhart, Matthew Perry, Christine Baranski & Dave Chappelle. The movie centers around a character named Gabriel Higgs (Stephen Mailer), a young man that was waitlisted to Johns Hopskins. Because his parents are very content on him getting in, Gabriel goes through extraordinary measures to bribe the five people ahead of him on the wait list to drop out so that he can move up the list and attend the school. Things don’t go according to plan when he finds out someone is killing all the people ahead of him and trying to frame Gabriel. I’m not sure if the movie was a commercial success or not but it wasn’t even released on DVD.
