I like the Director Richard Linklater, but this movie-not so much. Predictable and kind of stupid. A glimpse of the 80’s. So what? ? I agree with amoby.

A rather silly movie highlighting the disco era, a Texas college baseball team, college romance, boobs, beer, and bros. All in all, a fun watch.

Nursebob gets it right with his comments below. I must say though that at this stage in my game -- midlife and gauging stamina for the march to retirement -- I would gladly spend 48 hours back in the early '80s rambling from one party to the next, from one bar to the next, flirting with young women. This movie is for people like me who went to university from, say, the late 1970s until the mid-'80s. The music is familiar. So is the lackadaisical sense of one's horizon. It hit the spot.

Yet another bit of nostalgia aimed at the tail end of the Boomer generation, Richard Linklater’s entertaining booze ’n boobs college caper revels in authentic period details (the hair! the clothes!) and a dream soundtrack of classic rock anthems. It’s 1980 and freshman Jake is eager to start training with the baseball team at his nondescript Texas college. With just three days before classes start and an entire house to themselves, Jake and his horned up teammates are determined to party as hard as they can with beer, bongs, and a bevy of buxom coeds seemingly at their beck and call. Linklater clearly remembers the carefree tackiness of the 80s as the guys—sporting porn moustaches, shag cuts and tight jeans—go from discos to cowboy bars to punk rock clubs on a never-ending hunt for sex and stimulation while Blondie, Hot Chocolate, and The Cars blare from every radio. Juvenile entertainment to be sure with a boys-meet-girls plot thinner than a polyester shirt, but Linklater’s savvy script reminds us of what it felt like to be young, awkward, and horny and his cast of nice looking dudes play their respective roles (jock, stoner, Lothario, Geek, redneck…) convincingly without becoming total clichés. Not as sentimental as "American Graffiti" and certainly less crass than "Animal House", this is still a likeable little distraction for those of us old enough to hum along with the soundtrack.

I had my doubts going into this one. I love Dazed and Confused and if you have a choice between the two check out Dazed and Confused. Having said that if you're a fan of Dazed and Confused already and looking for something new to watch this is definitely worth checking out. I really liked the team dynamic and the feel of the film. It just makes you feel good to watch. It's not a classic to watch over and over, but you'll enjoy the ride none the less.

This is basically a recycled somewhat updated version of Dazed and Confused. Not nearly as good as Dazed and Confused- here we cant tell if its the 70's (disco, disco music, polyester shirts ,etc) or the 80s? kicker bars, a few 80s songs,punk, etc? ). Too much nasty facial hair. If youre going to do 80s, go all out! I thought this was supposed to be that. Instead, see Fast times at ridgemont high, Valley girl, or any John Hughes films- they are better. It was a bit boring, w/ no character development, acting that sounded rehearsed/ forced. Fell asleep during, and Linklater mustve been too when he made it. (He does make some other good films, though). I'd title this Nobody Wants Any.

99% university male testosterone movie with 1% nude Wyatt Russell for the females.

This is what happens when you have a focused sound track and a random script and then produce a movie using both.
This movie is okay then you get to the credits and the characters start to rap and you feel disturbed about the whole movie.

I'm a guy (born in the 90's lol) and at times I can find the dynamic that arises when large groups of young men get together rather annoying. Everybody Wants Some!! is able to simulate this phenomenon quite well. Unfortunately, this is not necessarily a good thing, as I was pretty annoyed at the display of testosterone early on in the film and was pretty close to shutting it off. Fortunately (or sadly, lol), I had nothing much better to do so I sucked it up and kept watching. It definitely ended up delivering 'some' more meaningful elements in the form of a sage-like character among the group, a very likeable "main" character and his ensuing romance. All in all, I was expecting better, but I never complain anytime I'm able to be entertained for 90 - 120 minutes.

After 10 minutes I had enough, wasn't funny or interesting...
