It's high school graduation and, like all seniors, they want to party. So, 500 high school seniors look forward to a party while, in the meantime, a boy wants to get a girl he's loved for years who just broke up with her boyfriend, and one head-case who wants revenge on a lifelong bully. So, the party comes, things develop. People have sex, drink, and go along with most of the guidelines of a high school graduation party. Written by

The yearbook that Melissa Joan Hart uses in the movie is from a Philadelphia-area high school named Plymouth-Whitemarsh. The students' pages shown in the movie are really the teachers' pages in the actual yearbook. See more »
When Preston looses hope after seeing Amanda being kissed by her cousin he tosses the letter he wrote to Amanda in the garbage, you see a silver Honda Civic next to the trash cans. The Brake lights and third light are flashing, it was done in a rhythmic pattern to make it look like the hazard lights are on. In reality the only way to make this happen would be to have someone continuously pump the brakes. The hazard lights on that make and model would be the lights below the brake lights and would flash orange in the same rhythmic pattern. See more »
You know what? This is just like that Scott Baio thing. When I was 16, I had the biggest thing for Scott Baio.
Listen, you don't have to sit here and go through... Scott Baio?
I said I was 16. I mean, this was back in the 'Happy Days' years, you know? Not to mention 'Joanie Loves Chachi'. God... I hated her. Joanie. You see, I always knew that somehow I'd meet him. You know? Like I wanted it bad enough, I could make it happen. And it did. Right after his first season of 'Charles in Charge', he ...

While walking through my local video store, I have walked past this cover box a trillion times and never really looked at it. Then one day, I noticed that Seth Green was on the cover, and since I became a fan of him during "Buffy", I picked up this movie, thinking, "What the heck, it's free!" (I had a Rent One Get One Free Coupon). I took it home not expecting anything but a few laughs from Seth, and boy was I ever shocked!
"Can't Hardly Wait" is not the greatest movie ever made, but I'll be totally honest with you, it's the biggest surprise of a movie I have ever watched.
I now own this movie, and it's one of those movies that, when I'm just not in the mood to go to a "galaxy far, far away", (yes, sometimes it happens) I pop this in and giggle hysterically.
Seth Green is wonderful playing the wannabe gangsta. The members of Loveburger are a riot. And Jennifer Love Hewitt isn't even all that annoying.
The soundtrack is quite amazing. With a movie like this, you'd assume that it'd be just Smash Mouth, Blink 182 & Third Eye Blind, and yes, those groups are included, but during the party scenes, there are a number of classic party tunes from Guns -n- Roses, Tone Loc and RUN DMC. Not to mention the whole Barry Manilow "Mandy" references.
No, this movie will not be re-released for a 20th Anniversary, but it's definitely worth watching, and ranks far above all the other "teen flicks" that are swarming to your local theater as you read this.
