It's high school graduation and, like all seniors, they want to party. So, 500 high school seniors look forward to a party while, in the meantime, a boy wants to get a girl he's loved for years who just broke up with her boyfriend, and one head-case who wants revenge on a lifelong bully. So, the party comes, things develop. People have sex, drink, and go along with most of the guidelines of a high school graduation party. Written by

Adam Hann-Byrd was originally cast as William, but after a couple of days of filming was let go and replaced with Charlie Korsmo. One shot of him is left in the film, but he is carrying a ladder and his face is not visible. See more »
At the beginning of the movie, several characters (including Preston) are introduced with yearbook entries. Toward the end of the movie, we see Preston's entry in the actual yearbook. The two almost match, but not quite; the actual yearbook includes French Club, but this is omitted from the introductory bit. See more »
Guys, we're gonna be in college soon. You know what there's gonna be in college, right?
Jake, Jock #1:
Girls that used to be in high school.
No, women. College women. Women with no curfew, women on the pill, women... women, bro. We are staring into the future here. And the future is women.

After all the credits are done rolling Mike Dexter yells out "I'll kick everyone's ass in this room" which he said earlier on in the film. See more »
While walking through my local video store, I have walked past this cover box a trillion times and never really looked at it. Then one day, I noticed that Seth Green was on the cover, and since I became a fan of him during "Buffy", I picked up this movie, thinking, "What the heck, it's free!" (I had a Rent One Get One Free Coupon). I took it home not expecting anything but a few laughs from Seth, and boy was I ever shocked!
"Can't Hardly Wait" is not the greatest movie ever made, but I'll be totally honest with you, it's the biggest surprise of a movie I have ever watched.
I now own this movie, and it's one of those movies that, when I'm just not in the mood to go to a "galaxy far, far away", (yes, sometimes it happens) I pop this in and giggle hysterically.
Seth Green is wonderful playing the wannabe gangsta. The members of Loveburger are a riot. And Jennifer Love Hewitt isn't even all that annoying.
The soundtrack is quite amazing. With a movie like this, you'd assume that it'd be just Smash Mouth, Blink 182 & Third Eye Blind, and yes, those groups are included, but during the party scenes, there are a number of classic party tunes from Guns -n- Roses, Tone Loc and RUN DMC. Not to mention the whole Barry Manilow "Mandy" references.
No, this movie will not be re-released for a 20th Anniversary, but it's definitely worth watching, and ranks far above all the other "teen flicks" that are swarming to your local theater as you read this.
