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.
A classic movie!
I want to buy this movie, not rent it.
Best classic movie I've ever seen! Dustin Hoffman plays the graduate Benjamin Braddock. Anne Bancroft plays Mrs. Robinson. I never stop watching this movie because Dustin Hoffman is great in this classic. I love when Mr. McGuire says Plastics to the Graduate. The theme song Sound of Silence is very famous. My favorite scene is when he puts the cross on the door. One word for this movie: AMAZING!
