186 – The Graduate (1967)

second base,woo-hoo

second base,woo-hoo

Another stellar performance by Hoffman.Must be his third or fourth so far on the list.The Graduate is about this college graduate who returns home after 4 years in college and doesn’t know what to do and is a bit stressed.He then gets seduced by the wife of a couple his parents know.Fairly straight forward so far but then he starts to date the daughter of the woman and she goes a bit crazy and tells him he can’t go near her daughter.The final 20 minutes of the film are a mad dash for anyone to get married.It all gets a bit hectic.Paul Simon did the soundtrack for the film.So if you’re not a big fan of Simon & Garfunkle then you might not like this because there is TONS of their music in it.I did see Richard Dreyfus pop his head up with 1 line,small cameo before his got famous.

IMDB RATING      –     8.1
MY RATING     –     8.3
SEEN BEFORE     –     YES
RECOMMEND?     –     YES
OVERALL     –  FUNNY.HOFFMANS REACTION TO SEEING HIS FIRST TIT IS HILARIOUS.
