Everybody Wants Some!! – 2

This movie’s view of college life makes Animal House seem realistic. Unfortunately, where Animal House is hilarious, Everybody is just obnoxious. In the 40 minutes we watched before walking out, there wasn’t a single enjoyable, let alone amusing, moment, no one I cared about, or anything resembling a plot. The characters’ personality traits were among my least favorite. I spent my college years avoiding people like this. That all the actors appeared to be closer to 30 than college age and wore cliched outfits didn’t help. Maybe Richard Linklater was setting these baseball players (and when did baseball players become BMOCs?) up for a deserved fall as the movie wore on; or maybe he just had a bad day.
