|Who drank all the fuckin beer?!|
New guy joins up with a college baseball team, and gets treated like a weirdo, at first. Then he makes some friends, loves on the ladies, and proves that he's the man. His ultra-competitive teammates are all types in the basic stoner comedy; The alpha-male douchebag, the pot head, the ladies man, and the token black guy. The new guy parties hard, gets duct tape hazed, and wins the trophy cute girl. Everybody Wants Some is basically Dazed Confused set in the 80's, and it's written and directed by the same guy (Richard Linklater). Ain't nothin wrong with that.
My Prediction- The characters look cool, the girls look hot, and the whole thing looks like a kick ass time. Turn up the Van Halen and let's make some memories... through other people's eyes. You know, vicariously. My life may be sad, but Everybody Wants Some will not be a Piece Of Shit. That might make me even a bit sadder when it's all over. I need to light some candles and take a bath.
Mike's Take -
Everybody Want's Some is the spiritual sequel to Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused. Set in the 80's, it's basically the story of a guy getting to experience life and all that it has to offer with his dormmates/teammates. Richard Linklater is the king of the indie films. He has inspired everyone from Quentin Tarantino to Kevin Smith. This movie is his homage to his younger days of the conservative, money hungry, partying ways of the 80's.
Who wears short shorts? Richard Linklater does, that's who! So quit askin'.
This movie is not a piece of shit.
