“The Skulls” is a secret society that sounds somewhat, and unfortunately, related to “Fight Club”: the most major rule is not to acknowledge their existence.Set at an unnamed Ivy League college, the secret society will benefit you by eventually shaping your life, placing you, and dictating what you do and how you do it (such as places of political power) –almost Communistically. The acceptance of a minor person (Joshua Jackson) into the institution as far as he’s concerned, is exactly what he wanted, but of course once he’s in and sees it is not what he wants, he tries to escape when trouble arrives. Naturally, he must find a way out when none is designated, and that leads to the typical “one man out versus everyone else.” It begins somewhat mildly suspenseful, but quickly becomes predictable and preposterous. And for such a sacred and prideful group (“We dot all the ‘i’s and cross all the ‘t’s” –that’s funny, the word “skulls” has neither, and the “The” doesn’t count), they sure seem easily dismantled and unorganized. Big screen newcomer Leslie Bibb (TV’s “Popular”) has a very attractive presence and sure knows how to run and scream, but that on itself does not even qualify as a fraction of a fraction of what is needed to pull this out of the sand it slipped it into. “The Hardy Boys” feels it gratuitously lends itself, is nothing more than plotting, overstated and anserous.Final Verdict: D+.
