Any fans of this movie. This enjoyable flick asked all the important questions of the 70's...Mary Ann or Ginger, Football or Pot, Kiss or Aerosmith, Paddle Now or Paddle Later, Keg Party or Parent's Night, Seniors Chicks or Freshman Crop, Pay For Beer or Stash & Dash, Baseball Bat or Bowling Ball and so many more.

My favorite character was Matthew McConaughey as Wooderson but this movie had a great cast. It was neat to see "Adventures In Babysitting"'s Anthony Rapp kinda grown up. This was the first movie I remember Adam Goldberg being in....he can play a great nutcase these days.

My favorite part is the soundtrack though...I love the songs.... "Tuesday's Gone" & "Low Rider" are wonderfully used in this movie. [Cool]

my absolute favorite movie.

"That's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older, they stay the same age."--Wooderson

Slater is another good character.

I agree the soundtrack is the best part of the movie. The movie starts off with Aerosmith's 'Sweet Emotion' and that sets the perfect mood for the entire movie. Every song seems like it was cleverlly planned out to fit the scene and have the greatest impact possible.

A thread that is very close to my heart, since I am Class of '77 and the movie takes place on the last day of the '76 school year.

I wasn't into the beer-guzzling pot-smoking gear-head scene because I went to a semi-urban regional school...we were more like mixed drink-guzzling pot-smoking disco-philes.

Still, it's a universal coming-of-age story, packed with great lines, great characters and timeless moments.

What I liked is that all the characters seemed believable to me. I've met and hung around people like every character in the movie.

O'Bannion eventually got his GED and now drives a forklift at the lumberyard. He's a power drinker at the local pub and it's not a good Friday night unless he doesn't kick somebody's ***. He's married and has 5 kids. Still has the same car he had back in high school.

The TV show "Celebrity Justice" did a piece on this movie recently. The movie was roughly based on writer-director Richard Linklater's experiences while in high school. Now it seems that the four real-life friends that were the inspiration to the main characters are suing Universal Studios because of the drug references in the movie that made them appear to look like a bunch doped-up losers, and it became a source of personal embarassment to them in later life. My only question about this lawsuit is: "Why are they suing now, eleven years after the movie first came out?"

Come on I thought Slater, Wooderson, and Randall "Pink' Floyd were cool. They should embrace the movie and laugh off the drug undertones. I mean it was 1976, it's not like what they did was so bad.

I will say....Richard Linklater should have done a better job disguising the names. Like wow let's change Richard to Randall, that should work. [Confused] [Razz]

Like I said, this high school picture was quite a bit different than the experience I had. From a fashion standpoint, I wouldn't have been caught dead dressing like those girls...my school was very 'preppy'...lacoste polo shirts, button-down oxford shirts, monogrammed sweaters, matching kneesocks, 'the right' leather shoes & matching purses. I never left the house in 'hippy chicky' garb, never smoked pot and hung out with Slater-types.

We drank alot & partied, but we still had a specific image to uphold in our town since we were a regional parochial school. We definitely considered ourselves better than those public school potheads in their clunker cars who hung out at the dive bars, while our crowd controlled the local teen disco hangout.

Still, if a guy like Wooderson had looked my way at 18, I'da been all over that!

Yeah this flick was one of my favorites from the 90s about the 70s. It really was the first movie that I can recall ever seeing that led any insight into what the 70s were like. What can I say, yes the music was awesome and an absolute match for this film. Everyone was cast appropriately and really jump started the careers for Ben Affleck, Joey Lauren Adams, Matthew McConnaughey, Cole Hauser, Nicky Katt, and Parker Posey.

"Saturday Night Fever" also captures the '70s quite well, just not from a nostaglic look back like "Dazed"...that was much more my scene than the pot-smokin' beer-drinkin' football backdrop. The urban east cost disco locale...the gangs of guys dogging the gangs of girls...that was definitely my '70s youth.

"Dazed & Confused" is one of my fav 90's flicks. I mean it was a 90's movie about the 70's that felt so 80's cool.

Cool...I've never seen this thread. Awesome movie. I love that scene when they are partying and Mike and Clint get into the fight over the pot... "No, I meant somewhere I smell some pot, you know? It was just an observation."

Nice...Similar quote in "They Live" by Nada:

I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick a**... and I'm all out of bubblegum.

Another great movie. But that's for another thread. [Wink]

Dazed and Confused is a great movie. At the end of the movie they talk about going to see Van Halen in concert. I've always wished they would make that into Dazed and Confused 2. Since they didn't, Detroit Rock City (1999) will have to do. From IMDB "Detroit Rock City is about four teenagers in 1978 who try to scam their way into a KISS concert." If they made Dazed and Confused 3, the storyline of Thunderstruck (2004) would be appropriate. From IMDB "After a near death experience, five Boys, all devoted AC/DC fans, make a pact to bury their best friend next to the grave of Bon Scott. 12 years later, having gone their different ways, they come together to fulfill the promise."

One day I'll watch Dazed and Confused then Detroit Rock City and then Thunderstruck after each other. Be a great few hours of viewing.

"Aerosmith, 2 weeks. Don't forget."

KISSMAD, that is quite the triple feature. I thought "Detriot Rock City" had its moments and definitely is worth watching for the great soundtrack. Might be Edward Furlong's second best film behind "Terminator 2". Great Mrs. Gene Simmons cameo as well.

Shannon "Mrs. Gene Simmons" Tweed never disappoints. I always liked Detroit Rock City as well. Probably because I was a huge Kiss fan back in 1978 when the movie was supposed to take place.

Sam, this wasn't "Hotdog....The Movie". [Razz]

I agree that KISS fans would definitely enjoy "Detroit Rock City" for the tunes alone. Actually KISS trading cards were quite popular when I was a kid.
