About some college graduates who after all there time in college still don't have the slightest clue on what they want to do in life. It was an OK movie. It stars a young Ben Affleck. It was just some mediocre acting, Nothing speacial about this movie. Not worth seeing again.

A fun look at people who aren't ready to move on after college. They fear that all the fun is about to go away as they are forced into the real world. Good acting by up and coming folks and good characters.

This was filmed at the University of Santa Cruz, wear a bunch of my friends went and I pucked several times.

Worth seeing just for Matthew McConaughey as the sleazy car salesman.

It grew on me a little bit. I intially watched it due to the now famous cast. It reminded me of a real college house. This was before american pie which set a standard that every college movie had to be slapstick humor. I didn't feel like the guy with dreads fit and it would have been better with out him. On netflix streaming.

This movie will always remind me of college. A bit of comedy, a bit of drama. Good cast, good soundtrack. Highly quotable.

Rancho Grande

Jack is overwhelmed by the idea of leaving college and moving on to a life of responsibility. As he talks to his other friends, some of which have already planned their future, others plan to drop out, and others just hope to have the guts to talk to their crushes, Jack decides it is in everyone's best interest if he stays at college as long as possible.

"Now you fucked up!"

Rich Wilkes, who worked on Airheads, xXx, xXx: State of the Union, Iron Fist, The Jerky Boys, and The Stoned Age, delivers Glory Daze in his directorial debut (and his only major motion picture directed to date). The storyline for this film is just okay and reminded me of a cross of Animal House and Van Wilder. The cast was more impressive in name more than by performance and includes Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Alyssa Milano, Sam Rockwell, Sean Whalen, and Megan Ward.

"You going to start hassling me already?"

This was a random movie I came across on Netflix and had to see because I had never heard of it despite the great list of cast members. I will say the story was only so well written and the characters could have been better developed (and Affleck's hair was scary bad). Overall, I'd probably skip this picture.

"He was a professional student."

Grade: C-

This movie practically got me through college. It exemplifies the late 90's perfectly and has an awesome punk rock soundtrack to boot. I still put it on when I want to smile. Sure the acting sucks and the plot is thin but it brings me back to a time when life was all in front of me and the thought of "growing up" really was scary as hell!

Overly angst ridden growing-up-and-what-do-we-do-now story most notable for it's cast, not just the main characters, but the cameos are full of well known faces.
October 3, 2006
the cast coplimented one another realy well and the begining of the movie went nicely, the last half of the movie left some to be desired. The last scene was an improvement but the damage was already done.

I'd rather watch Glory Hole porn than this movie.
