Linklater barely puts a foot wrong, and he shows that a movie about happiness can be cogent and robust, rather than sappy or wispy; and yet, for all its gambolling mischief, "Everybody Wants Some!!" leaves us with plenty to rue.

It's Linklater in a nostalgic mood-but also his most deeply felt piece of growing up.

Before Midnight convinced us that Linklater had become one of the most emotionally mature filmmakers of his generation. With Everybody Wants Some!!, he has a lame midlife crisis.

"Everybody Wants Some!!" is a nice long soak in the Proustian detritus of its era.
April 1, 2016
It's an effortless cult classic, delivered by a master of the form, and one of the first truly must-see movies of 2016.

It's hard to imagine another filmmaker who could invest the lives of straight, middle-class, norm-y, aggressively bro-y, immaculately groomed college sports jocks with a sense of vital anarchy and resounding humanity.

The film - which is being marketed as "a spiritual sequel" to Linklater's Dazed And Confused (and a "more chill" Animal House by the director himself) - meanders from minor adventure to minor adventure, with exchanges of amiable dude existentialism.

I kept pulling away from the whole thing, admiring as always Linklater's skilled direction of the ongoing bull session but concluding soon enough that bull was all the movie had to offer.

Loose-jointed and endearing ...

Richard Linklater's non-sequel of a sequel to Dazed and Confused has pitch-perfect tone.

Richard Linklater's idea of a baseball movie is one where the first pitch isn't thrown until the 90-minute mark.
March 31, 2016
As small and specific as it is, "Everybody Wants Some!!" feels improbably expansive, even universal.
March 31, 2016
At his best, Linklater gives the characters the space for quietly revealing moments.
March 31, 2016
Everybody Wants Some!! captures the essence of all sorts of youthful desires, both those that are easily identifiable and the more aching, unnameable kind.
March 31, 2016
Linklater somehow succeeds in showing just how sex-obsessed young men are at this age, without softening or sentimentalizing them, or making them obnoxious.
March 31, 2016
Linklater approaches all of this with affection, and even kindness-one of his distinguishing characteristics. "Everybody Wants Some!!" is a corrective to the tired, false "dumb jock" stereotype.

I worried I'd be disappointed by Everybody Wants Some!!, even though one of my favorite directors made it. But I loved it.
March 31, 2016
Consider "Everybody Wants Some!!" as both a fond exercise in remembrance and a movie that, at its best, works for people of Linklater's age as well as the people Linklater and company were, once upon a time.
March 31, 2016
Everybody Wants Some!! may be a little shambling and uneventful. But like college, it's the late aimless nights and idle afternoons that you look back on most fondly when you get older.

In its funky, aimless, winningly juvenile way, Everybody Wants Some is about as inclusively celebratory as any college comedy in memory: Per its title, it really does want everybody to get some.
