I disliked these guys immediately, saw no indication that the film was going to extract anything of value out of their characters, and walked out of the movie about an hour into it.

There's no storyline. The script just drifts from one vignette to the next as the boys cruise around, ogling girls, haunting the campus night spots and staging a party while their house does its best to remain standing under their assaults.

It's as if Linklater is bound by a bro code that obliges him to present these guys in a basically uncritical light.

Everybody Wants Some!! is obsessed with seduction. Don't let me stop you going all the way with Linklater. I'm just here to warn you that, with regards to this film, he doesn't go very deep.

A deceptively subtle comedy, and also a challengingly and almost provokingly unironic film intensifying and cartoonifying what it is like to be young and male ...

[Linklater's] light touch remains a marvel. Though his characters are often just bouncing from conversation to conversation, night out to night out, the film's direction is never lackadaisical.

Imagine "Porky's" as an intelligent character study and you're on the right path.

Another love letter to the magic hour of adolescence from director Richard Linklater.

Can only be described in the same way you might talk about college jocks -- attractive, dumb and charming, against your better judgment.

Although this may be "lesser" Linklater, it's still more enjoyable than a lot of what's currently available in theaters.

What everybody wants in Everybody Wants Some!! is not just sex and success on the field. It's what we all want. It's time.

It's almost an anthropological study: a tribe in its native habitat - batting practice, bar fights, babes (or so they hope, obsessively).
April 7, 2016
Everybody Wants Some!! is a terrifically entertaining movie that proves Linklater once again a master of perfectly capturing moments in time without judgment or apology.

The whole thing feels like a fond reminiscence conducted under the influence of some blissful chemical that allows you to remember things the way they should have been.
April 7, 2016
Everybody Wants Some!! is the rare sort of raunchy American comedy that allows as much time for scenes of people simply talking as it does for mud-wrestling matches and bar brawls

I admire Richard Linklater, but anyone who fixates on memories like these suffers from a case of arrested development. It all looks like old reruns of dated TV sitcoms, like Welcome Back, Kotter.

Though it's a super accurate rendering of the time period it portrays, the picture is also universal in its appeal.
April 5, 2016
Everybody Wants Some!! is about the moment when youth culture began to evolve into a cult of team players. It taps into how the freewheeling '70s gave way to a spirit of creeping conformism.
April 4, 2016
Linklater barely puts a foot wrong, and he shows that a movie about happiness can be cogent and robust, rather than sappy or wispy; and yet, for all its gambolling mischief, "Everybody Wants Some!!" leaves us with plenty to rue.
April 1, 2016
It's Linklater in a nostalgic mood-but also his most deeply felt piece of growing up.
