Critic Reviews for Glory Daze

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


I've been on a kick to pad out the IMDB ratings numbers that I have noticed are lacking, which means revisiting some stuff from the '90s and the various slacker dramas that proliferated at the time, and I wasn't surprised to find that this was one that hadn't aged well. It has a few moments and I like the cast, but more than anything it plays like Animal House for the Grunge set and I wasn't blown away by my 2nd viewing as a middle aged guy. Rental?

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.
