Movie Info

Returning from the original American Graffiti are Debbie Dunham, Steve Bolander, John Milner, Carol/Rainbow, Terry the Toad and Laurie Bolander (Candy Clark, Ron Howard, Paul LeMat, Mackenzie Phillips, Charles Martin Smith and Cindy Williams), but Richard Dreyfuss is missing and Harrison Ford shows up in a gag cameo. The sequel brings its principles into the more radical end of the 1960s, with Steve and Laurie, now married, on the fringes of the protest movement. Debbie and Carol have been lured into the flower-power milieu by rocker Newt (Scott Glenn). And John has parlayed his love of hot rods into a drag-racing career. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

Hate to make the obvious snark, but sometimes "More" is less.

April 2, 2005

Another sequel that never should have been committed to celluloid.

Audience Reviews for More American Graffiti


The sequel to the classic that had launched successes is more of a reunion with more compels and still go on being a tribute to the 60s (even circling on Vietnam), making this good as its predecessor. (B) (Full review coming soon)

I had always heard a lot of bad things concerning the sequel to American Graffiti. Some believe that it should never have happened, and some go as far as calling it a disgrace to the original. I don't necessarily agree that it ruins the memory of the original, in fact, I think George Lucas had an interesting idea in taking these characters through the turbulent 60s. The thing that ruins this movie for me is the unfocused nature of the thing, there are simply too many characters running around, and their stories don't relate to each other. The only thing they share in common is the era. Those expecting More American Graffiti to recapture the fun and nostalgia of the first film are really expecting a movie that this was never meant to be. Personally, I feel like a good movie could have been made from this idea but the execution fails.

I'm not quite sure if George Lucas was involved with the sequel. We know he doesn't have a reputation for making unnecessary sequels (ha ha). Anyways, this one should have been shelved in a hurry. We end up hating the characters that we loved in the first film.
