Cant Hardly Wait (1998)
|A comedy about six teenagers on the night of their high school graduation. Preston, a young man who decides that on graduation day, just before he leaves town, he will proclaim his love for denise, whom he has pined for from afar for the past four years.|
Editor's NoteIt'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.

Customer Reviews of Cant Hardly Wait
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.
Good Time Flick12/23/1999
I laughed and laughed. Although the plot was predictable (a few surprises though)the actors did an outstanding job. Seth Green was hilarious and I highly recommend this film. A definate feel good flick.

THEY DONT GET MUCH BETTER THAN THIS!!10/24/1999
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!!
Best coming of age film I have ever seen8/15/1999
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!)
