More American Graffiti (1979)
Critic Consensus: No consensus yet.
Returning from the original American Graffiti are Debbie Dunham, Steve Bolander, John Milner, Carol/Rainbow, Terry the Toad and Laurie Bolander (Candy Clark, Ron Howard, Paul LeMat, Mackenzie Phillips, Charles Martin Smith and Cindy Williams), but Richard Dreyfuss is missing and Harrison Ford shows up in a gag cameo. The sequel brings its principles into the more radical end of the 1960s, with Steve and Laurie, now married, on the fringes of the protest movement. Debbie and Carol have been lured into the flower-power milieu by rocker Newt (Scott Glenn). And John has parlayed his love of hot rods into a drag-racing career. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi … More

Hate to make the obvious snark, but sometimes "More" is less.
Another sequel that never should have been committed to celluloid.
Audience Reviews for More American Graffiti
I'm not quite sure if George Lucas was involved with the sequel. We know he doesn't have a reputation for making unnecessary sequels (ha ha). Anyways, this one should have been shelved in a hurry. We end up hating the characters that we loved in the first film.
THIS WAS THE WORST MOVIE I HAVE EVER SEEN! I LOVED THE FIRST MOVIE its my third favorite movie of all time This is F***ing Garbage this was awful very very bad it has no good thing in the movie it really sucks.Even More Dissapointing this produced by George Lucas. First off this movie has a random and very annoying screen views thing that I mean several Different Scenes from a story are randomly put onscreen at the same time, for example There will be a conversation between 2 people in a dance club One window will have one person the other window will have the other and the other two will randomly have random people dancing all on the same screen Most of the time its these dumb windows that are the size of less than a quarter of this computer or device.
This Seqeul added NOTHING to the story everything was explained in the end epilouge scene which is Repeated in this Movie. Sure Debbie has a story but it sucks and lacks interest just her old character in the first film.Also Remember that really awesome Climax in the first Movie where all stories meet for that awesome race. Well all of these stories take place during new years in Different Years.
So Kurt is leftout and not even mentioned which is good, but Debbie Replaces him and does a crappy job by having a very uninteresting story as she moves on and becomes a whore.Steve and and his wife have the most entertaining story which isnt saying allot its so very very bad the only reason why I say this is because its the closest thing to actually cotininue the first film.Steve has a dysfunctional relationship with his wife and she actually complains about having a job.So insted of looking for a job she joins a hippe protest Steve has to rescue her from the police but while they both are escaping they are arguing.John Milner has the worst story he is professional racer but dosent take it seriously insted he wants this girl that he cant even understand,she could be talking trash on him or saying something completely different not relating to being in love with him.As I reall I could be wrong but John forgets about carol I didnt see her in this movie.Newt is in vietnam and he decides he wants to go home at ANY sacrifice
This Movie ends so awful they replay the same epilouge from the first movie even Newt and John, If we are going know more about them we should get something new either tell us what happens to them or just keep them out.This Movie makes me angry and cringe in disgust just thinking about this movie.I WILL NEVER WATCH THIS AWFUL ABOMINATION EVER AGAIN!!!
(August 1979. Director: Bill L. Norton) Love this sequel to American Graffitti (the classic) which to me is very much unlike the original movie. Why? My best description is that it is a rock collage because it puts side-by-side events of the time (Vietnam War, picketing, drug uses, violence) with rock music from the same time period! And shows how music DOES reflect the times!! MUST SEE!!
