Trivia

Since long hair was the fad in the late 1970's, extras were recruited from the California Maritime Academy in Vallejo, due to their required short haircuts, and their campus was close to the Marin and the Fremont Raceway filming locations. See more »

Goofs

Toad is portrayed as a helicopter pilot, wearing the appropriate rank of a warrant officer, yet he is treated as a low-ranking enlisted man who takes orders from the First Sergeant and is placed on details for enlisted men. Normally, this would not be the case, as a warrant officer outranks a First Sergeant, and therefore would not carry out such tasks. Additionally, Toad's poor vision would have most-likely precluded him from being a helicopter pilot in the first place. See more »

Quotes

Little Joe Young: Hey Toad, I've been thinking. I'm taking care of you, right?
Terry 'The Toad' Fields: Yeah.
Little Joe Young: Now when we get back home, I'm gonna make you an honorary, full fledged member of the Pharaoh's, no blood handshakes, nothing like that.
Little Joe Young: [Toad claps his hands] Then me and you and them, we're gonna open up a... a used car lot. You sell 'em, we steal 'em.

Pointless sequel
13 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"American Graffiti" while overpraised, is certainly one of the best films of the early 70s. It made tons of money and jump-started the careers of many stars. So, naturally they made a sequel--but why? At the end of the original it told us what happened to the main characters--there was absolutely no surprises here. That being said it's an OK movie.

The different types of screen sizes are nice--70mm for the race car sequences; small, hand-held for the Vietnam sequences; multiple screens for Candy Clark and the hippies and regular size screen for Howard and Williams "normal" couple. But, storywise, there was nothing new here and the different screen sizes can only hold you interest for a while. It was just an average movie--but a big let-down from the original. This was not a big hit when it was released--it disappeared quickly.

This is mostly a forgotten movie--as it should stay.
