Did You Know?

Trivia:
Led Zeppelin recorded a song entitled "Dazed and Confused" on the album "Led Zeppelin 1" released in 1969. There is a subtle reference/homage to Led Zeppelin in the movie. In the scene where Don gets Benny out of wood shop, just after Don gets Slater's attention to signal Benny, listen for Slater's line, "Man, I ain't believin' that shit about Bonham's 1-hour drum solo...I mean, 1 hour on drums...you couldn't handle that shit on strong acid, man." This is a reference to Led Zeppelin drummer John Bonham who would frequently perform extended drum solos at concerts.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: While O'Bannion flunked, the tassel on his mirror could have been purchased before that was known.See more »

Pink:What girlfriend?

A laugh a minute, 23 March 2005
Author: Snoopymichele from CT

This became my all-time favorite comedy the first time I saw it. I was a small child in the 70's, but I do remember that era somewhat, and the characters in this movie reminded me so much of my teen-aged neighbors. The music is right on-one of the best soundtracks I have ever heard, a must-have for any 70's classic rock fans (in fact, it is so comprehensive, there are two volumes). Superb performances by Jason London, Sasha Jenson, Rory Cochrane, Milla Jovovich, Adam Goldberg, Parker Posey and Matthew McConaughey highlight this film, but the rest of the cast is just as great. It is no wonder that a majority of them went on to become major stars-everyone shines with this hysterically funny and nostalgic script written and directed by the amazing Richard Linklater. The movie flows beautifully, every scene is funny, and the chemistry of the characters is just amazing. Party at the moon tower!
