I'm a bum. But...I'm a Harvard bum, says Simon (Joe Pesci) wilder 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. 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'.
