Dazed and Confused (1993)

The adventures of high school and junior high students on the last day of school in May 1976. (IMDb)

The 70s teenage party life theme is certainly captured well and is charming enough, with its pot, booze, cruising, and rockin’ soundtrack, and there’s nothing inherently wrong with its plot-less direction, but when there are no other elements to grab your interest-the characters are surface-y and mostly unlikable (minus the charmingly troubled Mike) and the situations and dialogue are never that funny (frantic pot smell masking scene aside) or dramatic-then it gets stale really quickly.

5.6/10
