Everybody Wants Some!! (15)


A group of college baseball players navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood.

The critical consensus

This is a rites of passage ensemble comedy in which many of the best moments are the crudest, most lowbrow ones.

****(*)Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent, 10/05/2016

Some will balk at the macho sexism that runs rife, but Linklater perfectly captures the lust for life that accompanies those early college days. It’s magical.

****(*)James Mottram, The List, 09/05/2016

A perfectly pitched blast of nostalgia, which will transport you to that time in life when the future stretched before you and anything seemed possible.

****(*)Jonathan Pile, Empire Online, 18/04/2016

Nothing much happens, but that’s the point in this beautifully observed exploration of what it’s like to be young and male.

****(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 12/05/2016

The dialogue is witty, the sense of period is spot on and there is also a vulnerability beneath the bluster and bravado of young men enjoying the time of their lives.

****(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 13/05/2016

As an ensemble they’re just incredibly likeable, funny and endearing – much like the film.

****(*)Alistair Harkness, The Scotsman, 14/05/2016

The attitudes towards women are unenlightened, but the freshmen of Richard Linklater’s joyful 80s campus movie reveal occasional complexity.

****(*)Wendy Ide, The Observer, 15/05/2016
