Random 90s Movie Review #4: Glory Daze

Glory Daze, from 1995, is about Ben Affleck and his college roomies figuring out what they're gonna do with their lives after graduation day. Despite the fairly poor dialogue and plot progression, this had some redeeming qualities. 

#1. The soundtrack is killer; tons of 90s punk at its best. Reminded me of how I used to actually enjoy the college radio stations around here. 

#2. Bit parts played by Matthew McConaughey, Brendan Fraser, Leah Remini and Sean Whalen (one of my favorite creep character actors).

#3. Mini backpacks, tie-dye, flannel shirts (worn normally or tied around waist), baggy pants, one strap down overalls, plastic barrettes.......

#4. Ben Affleck is a total hottie, despite his Three Musketeers facial hair. If I had seen this when it was first released, I would've had a mad crush on him.

Why you should watch this movie: All the above reasons. And especially that photo directly above....

Why you shouldn't watch this movie: If French Stewart really gets your goat, steer clear of this one.

I Heart the Nineties rating: One snap up for a script that didn't quite get off the ground.
