Few films have defined a generation as The Graduate did. The alienation, the nonconformity, the intergenerational romance, the blissful Simon and Garfunkel soundtrack--they all served to lob a cultural grenade smack into the middle of 1967 America, ultimately making the film the third most profitable up to that time. Seen from a later perspective, its radical chicness has dimmed a bit, yet it's still a joy to see Dustin Hoffman's bemused Benjamin and Anne Bancroft's deliciously decadent, sardonic Mrs. Robinson. The script by Buck Henry and Calder Willingham is still offbeat and dryly funny, and Mike Nichols, who won an Oscar for his direction, has just the right, light touch. --Anne Hurley --This text refers to the VHS Tape edition.
Interesting to see Dustin Hoffman in one of his first movies. Miss Robinson is hot!!
The movie was okay.
I saw this movie twice, and I have to say that its highly overrated. The only good thing about this movie is the Soundtrack.Published 4 months ago by Felicia
I hadn't watched this film in a while since getting my plasma large screen TV. I threw in my 2005 MGM DVD, was aghast and stopped it after 1 minute. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Joker-scar
Excellent film. Still holds up. It's well written , funny well acted and the creative use of cinematography and transitions is still among the best in films. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Frog Feet
