Glory Daze is yet another of those "post-college angst ridden party boys get semtimental about moving on" kinda things, one that's notable solely because of its eclectic cast and very little else.

Audience Reviews for Glory Daze

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.


Super Reviewer

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.

Super Reviewer

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.
