American Graffiti 
Once Upon a Boring Night...
1/4 stars

I didn't find it particularly poignant perhaps because I couldn't relate to the characters at all. Platitudes run abound for one night and I wish I could say that enjoyed a few handful parts of it. The best thing about the movie is the music, such as The Beach Boys. I thought it captured that generation pretty well. A lot of older people say it stood the test of time. Ehh, I don't think so. The current generation is more like "Superbad" than "American Graffiti." I guess one could compare these two films regarding how much things have changed in thirty years. Other than that, there's nothing much to recommend. There were too many scenes shot in cars, people goofing around, not saying anything especially deep. After an hour into the picture, I wished the night would just end already.
