    incredible, accomplished filmmaking

    A stylish, wonderful movie that is poignant and funny. Well developed characters, great acting and direction and amazing attention to detail make this a must see classic. Max Fischer is a fascinating, hilarious character in the tradition of Harold from Harold and Maude, Benjamin from the Graduate. Bill Murray gives the performance of his career. Wonderful filmmaking from one of our best contemporary filmmakers, Wes Anderson.

    One of A Kind Film

    Wes Andersen is a true original. His films are unlike anything else you will ever come across. Sharply etched, smart, humorous, and touching. Rushmore could not have been made by any other director.

    Greatest movie of all time?

    If not... then very very close. The genius of Wes Anderson's writing is that it is an extention of everyday life. How many other directors out there can make a movie entirely their own within 30 seconds of filming? When broken down all of Wes's films are basic coming of age tales, which makes all of his charcters completely relateable. Josh Schwatze's Max may very well be the finest male protagonist ever put on film! Not to mention Bill murray is absolutely hilarious as Max's unlikely best friend. Thank you Wes Anderson for your consistant production of incredibly intelligent, hilarious films. And an extra extra special thank you for your continuing influence on the Punk/Hardcore scene!

    Not very good

    I didn't like the film all that much. It was very boring, especially near the end. The film also looked too artsy, and that's never a good thing.

    unique and intelligent

    I have given many reviews on this website and I rarely ever give a movie 5 stars. Max Fischer is one of the greatest characters to ever be put on film. I know that seems like an overstatement but I truly believe it. His character made me go thru a whole slew of emotions. I loved him, I hated him, I was embarrassed for him, I wanted him to lose, I wanted him to win. The scene where he gets drunk at dinner is just classic. He was so ignorantly arrogant and jealous. I loved it.

    Stirs memory of childhood regret happily

    A heartfelt comedy that haunts my mind with my own memories of eigth grade. At times the film is punny, rich in guffaws of hard laughter and The Kinks and Faces (Rod Stewart) but at its core a sweet story of Max Fischer's, for lack of a better cliche, coming of Age. Suffice to say I enjoyed Rushmore consummately
