Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Makes you feel a little tearful and choked-up while it is making you laugh yourself raw.
Fresh: A delightful, satirical comedy-drama.
Fresh: The remarkably true ring of Webb's dialogue is preserved and augmented, the visual potential lifted to next power in absurdity.
Fresh: The emotional elevation of the film is due in no small measure to the extraordinarily engaging performances of Anne Bancroft as the wife-mother-mistress, Dustin Hoffman as the lumbering Lancelot, and Katherine Ross as his fair Elaine.
The plot isn't the point of the movie
The movie is about the struggle of identity in modern society. What does it mean to be a man? a sexual being? an adult? The interaction between characters is what makes the movie interesting and relevant. Don't be put off by people who haven't even seen it.
One of the Greatest American Films
The Graduate is an amazing film that satirizes the generation gap in the sixties perfectly. It was wildly influential on subsequent cinema and it has a fantastic soundtrack with an introspective quality by Simon and Garfunkel. Basically, you need to see this.
ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES EVER!!!!
Nichols, bancroft, hoffman. One of their best films EVER!!! This film is still a classic to this day. WHAT??? YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS MOVIE?? YOU GOT TO BE KIDDIN!! RENT it NOW!!! Also, in the dorm scene when she screams and the guys in the dorm come to the door to see what has happend there is 2 lines of diologue from a new and future star named RICHARD DREYFUSS. I think the line is "You want me to call the cops, I'll call the cops" Something like that. Check out this gr8 film!!
