I woke up early this AM and couldn’t fall back asleep so I turned on the movie “Everybody Wants Some”. It’s billed as the spiritual sequel to “Dazed and Confused”, I’ll be nice and simply say it failed to live up to that billing.It was written and directed by Richard Linklater who was also in charge of D&C, but it didn’t come close to equaling it.
It wasn’t a total waste, it was decent. Good for a few laughs, but that is typical for a High School/College film that involves alcohol and hi-jinks. It was set in Texas, and quite a few of the guys were trying on the “Wooderson”(Matthew McConaughey) act a bit too much. The soundtrack, like “Dazed and Confused” was outstanding. Maybe the highlight of the entire movie.
