TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: Nostalgic in the best sense, Everybody Wants Some!! finds Richard Linklater ambling through the past with a talented cast, a sweetly meandering story, and a killer classic rock soundtrack.

All Critics (201) | Top Critics (43)

[Linklater's] light touch remains a marvel. Though his characters are often just bouncing from conversation to conversation, night out to night out, the film's direction is never lackadaisical.

Imagine "Porky's" as an intelligent character study and you're on the right path.

Another love letter to the magic hour of adolescence from director Richard Linklater.

Can only be described in the same way you might talk about college jocks -- attractive, dumb and charming, against your better judgment.

Although this may be "lesser" Linklater, it's still more enjoyable than a lot of what's currently available in theaters.

What everybody wants in Everybody Wants Some!! is not just sex and success on the field. It's what we all want. It's time.

Audience Reviews for Everybody Wants Some!!

½

Richard Linklater imagines baseball jocks as nice people in his nostalgic return to early 1970's U.S culture, as we are treated to 3 days with a baseball fraternity prior to the first day of college somewhere in Texas. If you can stomach the opening premise (for this nerd, jocks as nice people is like military intelligence, hard to believe ... and in Texas, no less), the rest ain't entirely so bad. It's a dream scenario of the early '70's presented with a classic rock soundtrack, the past with rose-colored lens set to maximum rose. But don't look too hard, or the flaws of this dream are readily apparent.

Like a thematic follow-up to Linklater's Dazed and Confused, this is an irresistible film that captures the energy of youth with a lot of nostalgia. Full review on filmotrope. com

As with any chronicle of another time, we're dealing with generalizations, but Linklater truly gets the spirit of the age down. It's a time period the director knows well as Linklater himself was a hopeful baseball player at Sam Houston State University in 1980. The affection he has for this subject matter comes through every lovingly recreated scene. There is such an eye for key details, right down to the fashion of the time. Those short shorts, skin tight polyester shirts and abundant mustaches establish the time period just as the corsets and cleavage in a costume drama do. Additionally, music is beautifully woven into the fabric of this production. The scenes in the clubs almost play out like the production numbers in a musical. These dudes have an inclusive zen like impartiality about life. It doesn't matter the style, be it disco, country or punk. They just want to meet women. 1980 was a period when a wide range of various musical styles reigned supreme on the charts. Rock, pop, country, soul, disco, punk, even the very beginnings of rap, were all part of the musical landscape of the times. A diverse range of styles had an equal opportunity on the radio airwaves. It was a very egalitarian musical era. Everybody Wants Some!! celebrates this spirit with sincere joy. It's infectious. fastfilmreviews.com
