Here’s What Critics Are Saying About ‘Everybody Wants Some!!’

Still from 'Everybody Wants Some!!'
Headed to the movies? Perhaps this college comedy is just what you’re looking for!
Love coming-of-age movies? How about a little college romance? Enjoy a hard-partying romp? Well, Everybody Wants Some!! is all that and more! But don’t take our word for it. Check out what the critics are saying…
“From the split-personality music of the time, to the macho-bonding of man-boy jocks, to the mysteries and glories of slightly older women, to the unbridled sexual energy of the 19-year-old away from home for the first time, to many a college student’s obsession with alcohol and parties and embracing every moment of the college experience, Richard Linklater’s non-sequel of a sequel to Dazed and Confused has pitch-perfect tone.”

-Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
“As small and specific as it is, Everybody Wants Some!!” feels improbably expansive, even universal.”
-Ann Hornaday, The Washington Post
Everybody Wants Some!! captures the essence of all sorts of youthful desires, both those that are easily identifiable and the more aching, unnameable kind.”
-Stephanie Zacharek, Time Magazine
“The film doesn’t so much build as glide, in a pleasing, half-stumbling way, to the first day of school, which links Everybody Wants Some!! to Linklater’s previous film, the gentle masterwork Boyhood.”
-Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
Everybody Wants Some!! may be a little shambling and uneventful. But like college, it’s the late aimless nights and idle afternoons that you look back on most fondly when you get older.”
-Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
“Leave it to Linklater to create a nonstop party that keeps ringing undertones of what happens when the party’s over. That’s what makes it a Linklater film. He builds human comedies, the kind that last.”
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
