TANYA’s review published on Letterboxd:
This is the type of coming-of-age-films that's so great, it gets me nostalgic over a generation I wasn’t even born or live in lol. I did not even get to experience any of these crazy and amusing last-day-of-school adventures and activities: Freshmen initiation rituals, running away from seniors, throwing tons of papers in the air as a celebration of bidding goodbye to the institution they seem to hardly like, and parties in pursuit of pleasure. Pehaps my reaction could be rooted from a slight envy, or the sudden thought of wishing that for once, I should have just Indulged myself to fun teenage stuff before, or maybe it’s just because I spent the last day of high school with friends, approaching people to sign our white upper-uniforms with their names and short messages, and watched movies alone that night haha.
“If we are all gonna die anyway shouldn’t we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I’d like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.”
I would also like to express my fascination over the 70's outfits as they are my ultimate fashion goals. 💃🏼
The soundtracks definitely contributed to the awesomeness of the movie. I even went to youtube just to play the songs again haha.
The characters, their friendship, and how they spent the last day of highschool were unforgettable. Slater was such a mood though, his character was one of the highlights in the movie hahah.
If I had to choose which group I wanna be with, I'd probably go with Tony, Mike and Cynthia. I think they're cool, too and Tony is cute and nice (haha), and I’d like to hear them discourse about things, life and/or politics.
Tony : So, you're not gonna go to law school? What do you wanna do then?
Mike : I wanna dance!
