This film is an absolute riot. The quintessential teen film of the 90's. The cast is attractive and hilarious. You'll enjoy watching the movie over and over again and even when the producers and goggle boy are talking over the film. Hewitt looks sensational in the Smashmouth video.

Best coming of age film I have ever seen

by Lynn Perry on 8/15/1999

Jennifer (I Luv you ) Hewitt and the rest of the cast provide the ingredients of the best coming of age movie yet. I laughed and laughed. And don't forget to stick around for the Smashmouth video after the movie (cool!)

An ultimate movie for an ultimate generation. Embry and Hewitt make a great couple that makes this movie an all time classic. Who cares about Citizen Kain, or Casablanca when you have Caan't Hardly Wait! If you want to buy a movie, that never gets old and is funny every time around...YOUVE FOUND IT!!

Editors Note
Note It's graduation day at Huntington Hills High, and you know what that means - time to party. And not just any party, either. This one will be a night to remember, as the nerds become studs, the jocks are humiliated, and freshman crushes blossom into grown-up romance. Will Preston (Ethan Embry) finally talk to teen queen Amanda (Jennifer Love Hewitt)? Will whiteboy rapper Special K (Seth Green) hook up? Writing/directing team Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont (JOSIE AND THE PUSSYCATS) pay loving tribute to the 1980's teen films they obviously adore, updating the genre for a new generation of young people.
Entertainment Weekly "...High-spirited..." 06/19/1998 p.50,"[E]ssentially an updated take on the party scenes from SIXTEEN CANDLES, SUMMER SCHOOL, and CLUELESS....[I]t's worth watching for the parade of familiar faces alone." -- Grade: B 10/10/2008 p.54
Los Angeles Times "...Fast and funny....For all its nonstop energy and high spirits, CAN'T HARDLY WAIT allows its characters to emerge as fully dimensional individuals..." 06/12/1998 p.C6

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review ... gets good mileage out of the classic pattern... It's about high school kids on the brink of new lives. It brings together a host of characters, some funny, some not so funny, and shows them growing and changing, falling in love, finding themselves, etc... It sounds like old stuff. Teenage movies without people stabbing each other have gone out of style. But Can't Hardly Wair has freshness, comic invention and an engaging romantic spirit.
