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

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 »
Hey, I've got one for ya. Remember that time when I was about to talk to that beautiful girl, and you came up to me and started telling me all these asinine stories? Remember that, huh?
Gee, that's funny. Because it *just happened*!
Hey, I ain't gonna forget this, man! You just wait, I ain't inviting you to any 10-year reunion!

If I'd gone to a party like this, my life might've turned out better
After a while, it's hard to remember back to that immortality of youth that this movie captures in a very clever way. The number of now famous actors and actresses who pop up in this epic is amazing. The characters are well polished: The jerks are jerkier, the nerds are nerdier, the jocks are even more jocked up, and as a boy who remembers what it was like to love the most popular girl from afar, the pain you suffered with that love was of a white hot intensity that the hero of this movie could not let go, much to his betterment, and to my loss (I didn't go, and she never knew).
