After the Huntington Hills High graduation ceremony, the fun gets underway at the graduation party where an assortment of jocks, geeks, prom queens, bimbos, headbangers, and nerdy misfits unload four years' worth of emotional baggage at a house where the hostess (Michelle Brookhurst) loses control of her guests. Writer wannabe Preston Meyers (Ethan Embry) has been in love with Amanda (Jennifer Love Hewitt of Party of Five) since the first time he saw her during their freshman year. His tormented infatuation with Amanda has intensified throughout high school and culminates at the party, where Preston must now seize this final opportunity to proclaim his love for her before he leaves the next day for Boston. Preston decides to make his move at some point during the party, a particularly auspicious occasion since Amanda has just been dumped by her super-jock boyfriend, Mike Dexter (Peter Facinelli), who wanted freedom to pursue his testosterone-charged fantasies with college women. Cringing at this ludicrous love triangle is Preston's introverted pal and confidante, Denise Fleming (Lauren Ambrose). When Denise runs into her ex-childhood friend Kenny (Seth Green), the two begin sexual experimentation behind the closed bathroom door. Geeky science-fiction fan William Lichter (Charlie Korsmo) devises a plan to ruin Mike's stud reputation and publicly humiliate him and his meathead buddies -- sweet revenge for four years of agony. Former Huntington Hills graduate Trip McNieley (Jerry O'Connell) tells Mike about the terror awaiting in college where "Guys like us are a dime a dozen." Yearbook Girl (Melissa Joan Hart of Sabrina, the Teenage Witch) wants everyone to sign her cherished volume of memories as the partying teens attempt to move into the uncertain future. Party house exteriors were shot on Rubio Street in Altadena, California, and other California locations included Johnnie's Broiler in downtown Downey, Dutton's Book Store in Reseda, Marshall High School in Los Feliz, and Union Station in LA. With more than 70 speaking parts, this film is the directorial debut of the scriptwriting team of Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont.

Teenagers are lame.
This movie is a corny movie about teenagers and high school romance. Myself being a teenager, found the movie to be insulting and superficial. The cheerleaders are ''blondes.'' The football players have been hit one to many times. The nerds are the smart but weird ones that are picked on by the football players. The whole movie just is the ''classic teen flick.'' I wouldn't recommend this movie but if you end up wanting to see Can't Hardly Wait. Rent it. That way you can return it within five days.
I lived this movie, the whole thing WAS the last party from my HS graduation. Kind of weird, but the fact is the stereotypes are funny because they are real and, OF COURSE, exaggerated. It is a comedy, but sitting there, you start to assign names from your school, at least I could! I would highly recommend this movie to anyone who graduated HS from 1994-2000, or maybe anyone who want to laugh at us. Seth Green is hilarious, I swear he learned his character from the ¿oppressed¿ white kids at my school. Jerry O¿Connell also does great as the former jock who got to the real world. Ethan Embry is a perfect indecisive and infatuated teen. Just perfect.
This is a great movie. It has great actors and is so funny! I liked the Angel Stripper. That was original. I also thought it was funny that two of them got trapped in the bathroom. The end was great because they show how everyone ends up when all is said and done. Very funny movie.
I absolutely loved the movie, Can't Hardly Wait''. I could live off of this romantic comedy. I really sugest that you, you, and of course you, watch it today. You will get your moneys worth out of it. If you are a Seth Green fan, like me, or an Ethan Embry fan, you should rwally watch it. E'mail me for any questions. TTFN
this movie is good i have the dvd and i love it the guy has a letter which he's had for 4 years being in love with Amanda Becket played by Jennifer Love Hewit who was beautiful in the film then theres Kenny Fisher the ladies man atleast thats what he thinks played by Seth Green who's real funny and super cute the movie is anout teens in highschool highschools over now's the party and you can't forgert Ethan Embry he was the guy in love with Jennifer Hewit he was real cute one movie that i'll never forget!
My entire High School fun and experience was based on this movie. To this day, after I have graduated, I still do the quotes that are most popular from this very funny teen flick. I suggest you buy this movie and notice the little hidden suprises such as the kid who always steals stuff in the background.
