Similarity to Dazed and Confused (1993): Both films feature a scene in which four characters marvel over a broken paddle in very similar ways. In Dazed and Confused, Pink points out that Benny's shop class paddle has a hairline fraction from an off screen freshman hazing. In Everybody Wants Some!!, Jake points out the split handle of McReynolds' ping pong paddle after he throws it in a rage. See more »

Yes, the movie was realistic and there were a few, sparse moments of tenderness between Jake and his romantic interest, but I was disappointed by the imbalanced focus of this movie. As most college students, then and now, are not hardcore jocks, this is a skewed vision of college life in that era. We get scant input from other groups on campus.
Compared to Dazed and Confused, which featured a much broader spectrum of teenage life in the mid 70s, including jocks, budding intellectuals, burn-outs, etc., Everybody Wants Some is mainly focused on college jock life and the pervasive misogyny one might expect. At times insightful, and also humorous, the movie simply observes the lives of its characters. But it pales compared to its predecessor, and the overwhelming emphasis on the misogynistic and competitive sexual exploits of its characters tends to fracture and efface the movie's charms.
