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

In the "business" scene in Pickford's room, Pickford sprays the air freshener and then sets it (and the glass bowl) down on the record cabinet before letting his dad in. When Pickford crosses the room to look out the window at the beer truck the jar and spray can have moved to the floor, but when he walks back to his dad both items are back on the cabinet. See more »

Intelligent comedy-drama about the last days of a bunch of high school seniors having a big bash in 1976. Excellent film all around with a well written script by director Linklater and a superb cast that features McConaghey, plus one of the finest compilations of classic rock ever.
