Can't go wrong with a nice cast and a producer named Francis Ford Coppola. The special features such as the tidbits and trivia of the film being Lucas personal writing and based on his personal experiences. Funniest moments were Milner/Carol interactions and Terry trying to get alcohol. A cool line from the film - Curt - "I think she said, 'I love you.' That means nothing to you people? You have no romance, no soul?" Boasts one of the best soundtracks and coming of age stories. Weak-points would be the uninteresting story-lines of certain characters and a flawless cast. American Graffiti is a good coming of age film enjoyed by anyone. If only Lucas can do more films such as these.

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.
