The film has many parallels with Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused (1993): both take place on the last day of school, have ensemble casts featuring primary story arcs for both older and younger groups of characters, tackle the phenomena of youth hazing, include an everyman protagonist who is genuinely welcomed by all crowds/cliques depicted on-screen (Lenny/Randall "Pink" Floyd), have a fistfight standoff between two men serve as the climactic scene, and have several interconnected plots all clash together during the pursuit of "the big kegger/party" in town that night.

Went to see this and wish I could have worked all day instead!!! This was an absolute waste of time and money. Waste of my money for paying to see this crap and super waste of money spent on making this garbage. It has some funny moments, most of which are shown in the previews, but there is no real flow or storyline. It has some solid actors in it too, which is a shame, because it seems to me that if they cared about their careers at all, they should have been able to read the script and see that it would not work. I assure you, if you are over 12...no, over 7 years old, you will leave disappointed... Please don't waste your money too!!!!!!!!!!!!!
