It's the last day of school at a high school in a small town in Texas in 1976. The upperclassmen are hazing the incoming freshmen, and everyone is trying to get stoned, drunk, or laid, even the football players that signed a pledge not to. Written by

Claire Danes auditioned for the role of Sabrina but was considered "too classy" by the director. See more »
Near the end of the movie when they are smoking a joint on the football field, the long shot shows them all sitting about 20 yards from a large dead patch of grass, but in the close-up, Slater's head is almost in the dead spot. See more »

I was born in 1975 so I sort of understand that people like this film as a travel back in time, but as a story, it sucks. The fact is: there is no story. None whatsoever. Apart from the beating of the freshmen(which I've never experienced), I've been to better and more interesting parties than the one in this film, and I've never thought that those parties where film material. Style over substance all the way. The best thing about is the music, but I find it hard to believe that in 1976, they only played songs that were later to become classics. I guess they also played songs that were forgotten as well.
And it is not a comedy.
