Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Rich Wilkes's film is like an archeological dig that provides a historical look at some of the 1990s' hottest actors emoting the angst and confusion of college grads. Ben Affleck stars as a guy whose life hits bottom when his girlfriend dumps him, and so he then tries to make it a constant party. He faces confrontations with his dad, who wants him to "get serious," and his pompous professor, who belittles his work. And though he also faces the dissolution of his best friendships--his housemates in "El Rancho Grande"--it's growing up that bothers him. "I don't know what's going on anymore," he says. "When I was 18, everything was great. Now nothing makes me laugh."

Affleck sports a goatee and a mohawk, not to mention a grunge wardrobe that wouldn't be allowed on the set of one of the more corporate-driven blockbusters in which he has since appeared. He is supported by French Stewart, who is almost as alien playing a student as he is playing an alien on Third Rock from the Sun. Affleck's buddy Matt Damon does a literal walk-through, and even though Matthew McConaughey mugs without mercy, it's Brendan Fraser who steals the film with a hilarious bit. Alyssa Milano also gives a touching performance that far exceeds her TV persona. Although the movie presents itself as a comedy, it's filled with youthful rage. Ever since The Graduate, movies have portrayed the plight of idealistic kids shot from cannons into the questionable world around them, and Glory Daze speaks to the '90s in that tradition. --Lloyd Chesley

Customer Reviews

Affleck is excellent as is the rest of the cast.
Tommy
There are virtually no laughs the entire movie, the characters are boring and uninteresting.

If you'd EVER partied in college, lived with roommates, drank, had post-teen angst, or knew people who did, you will love this movie. If you'd NEVER swear in your life, had no angst from growing up, and considered yourself to be perfect and normal, you'll hate it.
THOSE THAT GAVE BAD REVIEWS HERE EITHER CANNOT RELATE TO IT OR DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT. A movie should not explain everything in plain view for you. Let it make you think a little and you'll walk away enlightened!
Glory Daze is rather a cleverly written movie with unconventional dialogs. It is set in the small town of Santa Cruz, California.. and I believe it to be based on a true story. The characters are not typical and therefore are much more interesting to watch than your average American Pie flick. You will probably find similarities between yourself and one or more of these characters.
The CAST consists of Ben Affleck, French Stewart, Sam Rockwell, Vien Hong, Matthew MacConauhey(sp?), Alyssa Milano, Megan Ward, Brendan Fraser, Vinnie Deramus, Matt Damon(cameo), Spauding Grey, and John-Rhys Davies. I thought the two most stunning performances were from Sam Rockwell(ROB) who played the party guy gone conservative.. and Vien Hong (SLOSH) who was a computer science major dropout turned Bukowski-drunk. Sam Rockwell can be seen in many other wonderful movies such as Charlie's Angels, Green Mile, and A Box of Moonlight. And Vien Hong is not as well known, very versatile, and can be seen in smaller roles in big movies like We Were Soldiers playing Mel Gibson's interpreter, City of Industry(a Harvey Keitel movie). He's one of those skilled-actors that can take a small part and give it a lot of life. Affleck, although not bad.. I thought he did a better job in Chasing Amy.
I'd recommend you to buy it.

I really wasn't expecting much from this movie. Thankfully, I was wrong. Affleck plays a young art student about to graduate from college in three days time. He is faced with the fact that he is about to enter the world of adulthood completely unprepared. All he wants to do is stay with his friends and keep partying. The dialogue is dead-on, very realistic. In fact, this was a really good coming of age story in the tradition of Diner (yes, really!), but with a lot of 90s references/outlooks. It also has a hell of a lot of random cameos, all funny. Affleck is perfectly cast, as is Milano, Sam Rockwell, and French Stewart. Wait'll you see what they do to their poor off-campus housing in the end... preservation through destruction! So go see it!

This film is good for a giggle. Not a classic, but something to pull down off the shelf when you're after a laugh. Quite abstract and off beat with some of it's jokes it makes for an intelligent comedy (rare for the college comedy genre films such as 'American Pie').

Young adults facing the question of "What comes next in life" should relate quite well to the films main character played nicely by the talented actor Ben Affleck before he made it big.

If you're after a witty (sometimes bitter) comedy this is for you.

Fans of punk rock will love the soundtrack, especially the Vandals song "It's A Fact".

If any of the above sounds interesting to you, do yourself a favour and check out this film.

OK, I'm not a film student/critic of any kind, but I saw this movie about 4 months before I graduated college, and it really struck a chord with me.
Brief synopsis: The focus is on five college roommates who are close friends, some of whom are facing graduation in a week or so. What follows is how they react to the group being broken up, and how they spend time together before going their separate ways.
Ben Affleck actually turns in a fairly good performance as a disaffected slacker type who chose to pursue an art degree despite his parents' wishes; French Stewart is his typical self despite his role as a "professional student", but I thought the best performance in the movie was turned in by Sam Rockwell. To top it all off, some hilarious bit parts with Matthew McConaughey, Matt Damon (it's quick, and he doesn't say a word), as well as Spalding Gray, who plays Affleck's dad.
There are some heavy-handed pieces of symbolism -- check out the very end of the scene when "We're Only Going to Die for Our Own Arrogance" is being played -- but then again, college was rarely about metaphors, and (for me, anyway) more often about friends, parties, and cheap beer. I think anyone who has spent time living with several of their close friends, in college or otherwise, and then has had to go their separate ways, will enjoy this film.
Sometimes films don't have to be artistic or expensive to be good; they just have to tell a story that people will enjoy watching again and again. For me, this is one of those stories.
P.S. - An outstanding punk soundtrack, including NOFX, The Vandals, The Mr. T Experience, the New Bomb Turks, and a pretty good cover of the above mentioned Bad Religion song by Sublime.

i had never heard of this movie until my old college roommate showed it to me. he had an old, beaten up copy he made while he was in the army. i have a very broad taste in movies. when he showed me the tape, i recognized some names and figured i'd give it a shot. i had no idea how much this movie would hit home. at the time, we threw wild parties at our off-campus flop house. our place generally was as trashed as "El Rancho", the house in the movie. every character in the movie will remind any college student of someone they knew. this movie is funny, but definately has a serious message if you are willing to pay attention to the details. all these things aside, this movie is not going to win an academy award. BUT, if you want to remember the good old college days and don't want to watch your typical "teeniebopper" show that the studios "churn out year after year", then you HAVE to see this movie. (forgive the quotations, but if you watch the movie, you'll understand) by the way, matthew mcconaughey gives a cameo that is HILARIOUS. for those of you who would rather rent it first rather than buy it, it is a sundance film festival movie (i worked at blockbuster). be sure to check this one out!
