    A beautiful look at American culture before the cultural revolution. Also it had an all star cast and amazing imagery.

    George Lucas' "American Graffiti" remains one of the finer coming-of-age films as it explores the pre-Vietnam life of teenagers on the night before they leave for college and pays homage to the diners, drive-ins, music, and drag racing that defined a generation.

    Beautifully shot, powerful performances An interesting window into the zeitgeist of its time. Great directing, it has a timeless quality. But it's not as good as Star Wars.

    This movie was decent. It was a bit boring at times but it has its moments of comedy.

    ‘American graffiti' is a terrific demonstration of an era and a teenage life with enjoyable stories and remarkable soundtracks.

    You can see how this film set the standard for coming of age tales, with some strong breakout performances and a simple yet enjoyable story. Bit of a nostalgia piece which will carry more weight for people alive in the 60s and I thought the soundtrack was good, but perhaps slightly overpacked. Young Richard Dreyfuss was brilliant - close your eyes and it sounds like Paul Rudd has gone back in time.

    George Lucas's coming-of-age comedy was so unique and profitable in 1973, that it helped fund the creation of Star Wars. The film is entertaining for it's historical significance, but nowadays, it just seems like a foundation for the genre.
