Stealing Harvard is a comedy film that was released in 2002. The movie features a star-studded cast including Jason Lee, Tom Green, and Leslie Mann. Directed by Bruce McCulloch, the film tells the story of two best friends named John Plummer (Jason Lee) and Duff (Tom Green). The two friends have been inseparable since childhood and have always been there for each other, no matter what.

However, things take a drastic change when John's niece Noreen (Megan Mullally) is accepted into Harvard University. Noreen is the apple of John's eye and he wants to ensure that she is able to attend the prestigious Ivy League school. However, John has a problem. He has promised Noreen that he will pay for her college education, but he doesn't have the money to do so. In an attempt to keep his promise, he turns to his friend Duff for help.

Duff, who is a bit of a loose cannon, agrees to help John in any way he can. John asks Duff if he can borrow $30,000 to pay for Noreen's tuition. However, Duff has a bit of a shady past and tells John that the money he has is not exactly clean. The situation escalates when John discovers that Duff has already spent the money that he loaned from a gangster for other reasons.

With no other options available, John and Duff decide to embark on a mission to steal the amount that is needed for Noreen's tuition fees. They plan to rob a number of local institutions like pet shops, strip clubs, and gas stations in order to get the money. However, things don't go as planned and the duo ends up getting into all sorts of trouble.

Meanwhile, John's girlfriend Elaine (Leslie Mann) is trying to convince him that what he is doing is wrong. She believes that he should be honest with Noreen and should not risk his life and reputation to fulfill his promise.

The movie offers a lot of laughs along the way, as John and Duff try to raise the money through various comical schemes. The film is full of ridiculous situations and hilarious characters, including John's eccentric family members and a love-struck security guard who has a crush on Noreen.

Overall, Stealing Harvard is a lively and humor-filled movie that is perfect for a night of laughter with friends. The film is an enjoyable watch, thanks to its witty writing and the comedic talents of its cast. Fans of Jason Lee, Tom Green, or Leslie Mann will certainly enjoy this movie, as will anyone who loves a good comedy.
