This underrated teen comedy from 1998 is guilty of being a proud underachiever, and it doesn't bring anything new to the genre, but look closely and you'll find the makings of a much better movie buried under all the keg-party antics. The basic story is typical for this kind of comedy. A young, aspiring writer named Preston (Ethan Embry) has been lusting after class beauty Amanda (Jennifer Love Hewitt, from TV's Party of Five) for four years of high school, but he's never had the nerve to tell her. Now that they're about to graduate he has finally worked up the courage to write her a soul-baring love letter. At the raucous graduation keg party that takes up most of the movie's 98 minutes, Preston agonises while Amanda's selfish jock ex-boyfriend tries to win her back, and delivering his love letter turns out to be more difficult than he ever imagined. What's interesting about Can't Hardly Wait has little to do with its attractive leads, however. The most engagingly real and entertaining characters are the misfits who show up in the sub-plots, including a geek (Charlie Korsmo) who turns into the life of the party and a pair of old friends (Seth Green, Lauren Ambrose) who confront each other about their mutual needs and insecurities. There are some really good scenes between these two and this modest movie has a few other pleasant surprises up its sleeve. That doesn't make it particularly good but it does make it an agreeable waste of time. --Jeff Shannon

By Darren Harrison VINE VOICE
Some have dismissed this movie as one that delivers teen appeal, but little for anyone else. This is an assessment I disagree with. I first saw this movie when I was 27 and now in my 30s I still enjoy it. Sure, it may be a "guilty pleasure" but it's an entertaining one that delivers a delightful concoction of comedy, drama and romance combined with a good score. In fact this movie manages to deliver some timeless themes, all packaged into 100 minutes of teen excess.

It's not hard to understand why someone would have a crush on Jennifer Love Hewitt, even before she started being a regular on the phenomenally popular television show PARTY OF FIVE she had legions of fans. By time this coming-of-age movie was released in 1998, she not only had tremendous face recognition from the small screen, but also on the big screen, having just starred as the lead in the teen shocker I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER.

Of course there's also the fact that she was one of the most attractive of all the teen actresses at that time.

So, perhaps she was the perfect actress to play the part of the one girl in school that every man wants to be with, and the particular attention of a schoolboy crush in CAN'T HARDLY WAIT. Although she does not share as much screen time as lead Ethan Embry, her presence is felt nearly every scene in the movie.

So, what's the movie about? It's the end of school and there's a party in town to celebrate - and everyone's going to be there. Destined to leave for a workshop with his idol Kurt Vonnegut the next day, Preston Meyers (Embry) sees this as the last chance to let his dream girl Amanda Beckett (Hewitt) know how he feels.

Aside from being a step above a lot of other teen movies this movie is CRAMMED with people before they became big from films and tv, I am not gonna ruin it because there are so many 'Oh My G that's ....' moments (or even better the 'OMG who IS that??!!' moments!) Great movie for a night in with the girls.

4.0 out of 5 stars Can't Hardly Miss This! 22 Mar 2003
Preston Meyers (Ethan Embrey) has been infatuated with Amanda Beckett (Jennifer Love Hewitt) ever since he saw her on the first day of school four years ago. Four years on, they've graduated and are going to a party to end all parties. Amanda has split with her boyfriend and Preston decides to tell her how he feels.
That's the story of this film in a nutshell but to be honest the real humour and interesting storyline comes from another source. Seth Green plays Kenny Fisher and is by far the best character and actor in the film for me. Every time you see him you're laughing. Kenny is a white guy who acts black from the way he dresses to the way he talks and he's determined to lose his virginity at the party - unfortunately the girls aren't interested even though his rucksack is loaded to the brim with all kinds of sexual aids and books!
He accidently gets locked in a bathroom with a girl called Denise (Lauren Ambroise) who uses her sarcastic attitude to protect herself and who used to be good friends with Kenny when he was little. As the evening develops so does their relationship. In fact I was more interested in what happened to these two characters more than the leads.
The film also has a great soundtrack and is good fun throughout as all the characters show sides of themselves at the party that they didn't at school.
If you want to have a good laugh then watch this!

Format:VHS Tape
Seth green and his hip hop "wanna be" side kicks have to be the highligh of this film very entertaining film, the laughs do come faily thick and fast if you appreciate the not at all subtle brand of basic humour, though approach with care if you seek a deep and meaningful piece of art.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite teen movie of the 90s 20 Jan 2003
In my opinion, this is one of the best teen movies ever made. While the main characters seem somewhat stereotypical at first, all of the characters (well, almost all of them) break down the barriers of high school cliquedom and discover something about themselves and their high school classmates. The whole movie centers around a party on graduation night. Preston (Ethan Embry) has carried a torch for Amanda (the gorgeous Jennifer Love Hewitt) ever since meeting her as a freshman. After four years, Amanda has just been dumped by her jock boyfriend, and Preston is convinced that fate will finally bring him and Amanda together. A series of "signs" convinces him to tell Amanda how he feels about her--this task becomes pretty complicated as the night progresses. Meanwhile, there are other wonderful subplots. Seth Green is hilarious as a jive-talking, would-be playboy determined to find a girl at the party; he ends up stuck in a bathroom with a girl he was good friends with before he tried to join the cool crowd in high school. The obligatory nerd goes to the party with a plan to humiliate Amanda's ex-boyfriend for having picked on him for years, and he ends up becoming the life of the party. His drunken performance of GNR's "Paradise City" is not to be missed. A lot of things happen throughout the movie, but the only person who really comes out a loser is Amanda's ex-boyfriend.
As a former nerd, I enjoyed seeing the self-absorbed jock get humiliated, the nerd become temporarily popular, and the shy guy stand a chance of getting the girl.
