About the Movie

It's graduation day at Huntington Hills High-- a time for Pomp and Circumstance, tassels and mortarboards, and serious introspection about the future. But tonight, the seniors will leave all that behind for the things that really matter; romance, revenge and rock 'n' roll. Ethan Embry, Charlie Korsmo, Lauren Ambrose, Peter Facinelli, Seth Green and Jennifer Love Hewitt star in one raucous comedy about the ultimate teen party, a once-in-a-lifetime alternate universe where class nerds become class studs, super-jocks are humiliated, and freshman crushes blossom into grown-up romance. From prom queen to bimbo, meathead to misfit, everyone will be there for a hormone-charged bash tapped for out-of-control fun. BONUS! Includes SMASH MOUTH'S Music Video for Can't Get Enough of You Baby.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Flip through any yearbook, and you'll find the stock characters who amusingly populate the teen-age comedy Can't Hardly Wait. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Mar 19, 2014

Rotten: A failed attempt to recapture the exuberant magic of such highschool movie classics as American Graffiti, this is a loud and boisterous comedy, in which the entire action is set during an interminably long graduation night. – Emanuel Levy, Variety, Aug 16, 2011

Rotten: Kaplan and Elfont provide a real public service by showing how underage binge drinking can boost bookish students' social lives. – Mark Caro, Chicago Tribune, Mar 19, 2014

Rotten: There are signs that Can't Hardly Wait once had more serious aspirations... But in the final edit, at least, it's the dumb, broad slapstick that prevails, short-circuiting identification with the characters before it can begin. – Dave Kehr, New York Daily News, Mar 19, 2014
