Wonderful piece of film history, although watching it so many years later was comical more than anything else. Everyone should see this movie for their personal film education.
Who would have thought when this came out that Dustin Hoffman would go on to be such a huge star. Great movie and one of those that has become part of our culture.
A 1960's classic one of my favorite films. Hoffman at his best. the stunning beautiful Katharine Ross.... loved every minute of it, did not want it to end. Do yourself a favour hire it. Superb acting, storyline, direction, but remember it is about 40 years old. highly recommended
I dont know why, I love this movie! Maybe its his Alfa that does it for me! Its just a bit of fluff really, but with an edge!
I was a bit let down by this. I know it's a classic movie, but I was just expected to enjoy it a bit more. The bit that I enjoyed the most is at the wedding - reminds me of the scene from Waynes World, which is probably where Waynes World "borrowed" it from!
Subscribing to Quickflicks has been a good opportunity to see movies that you should have seen in the past but for various reasons didn't. This is a little dated now, but still holds up with some great acting from all the leads, and a tight script.
What a strange film! I got the impression it was written to be performed as a play from the script. Sure it was funny at times, but I found I was laughing at it not with it... I wouldn't recommend it.
A marvellous movie. Excellent performances from Dustin Hoffman and Ann Bancroft. A classic.
I love Anne Bancroft in this film - she's a pre-feminist cougar!! And that animal print wardrobe!! WOW. Really great existentialist crisis tale set in the leafy, sunny suburbs of 1960's Los Angeles.
I can still remember where I first saw this movie- the Roseville Cinema. I can still remember the Mad Magazine sendup of it. I will never forget Mrs Brooks' leg, putting on a stocking. And the rotating pasties in the tittie bar! Sex was much more fun when it was honestly sleazy, or maybe when one was young. As a hymn to lost things, this one does not age badly.
An interesting classic film. It was slightly disturbing like Taxi Driver but without the violence. Worth watching.
This is a fantastic film. Sound and vision so well thought out, even with phallus shaped shadows from wall lamps. Inspired by Italian/French films of the era.
Dustin Hoffman was hysterical in "The Graduate", he had me laughing all the way through the movie. I had to watch this film for school, and I really enjoyed it back then. The Gradute had the same effect when I watched it now. The only annoying thing that irritated me, was the number of times they played "Scarborough Fair" during the film. Otherwise, I loved it.
A great comedy that holds up after all these years. "Would you like me to seduce you?" Still influences numerous filmmakers today
Watch it and cross it off your must see list.
excellent classic -what aperformance from a very young Dustin Hoffman!
Hadn't watched this film since it first came out in the 60's. I enjoyed seeing it again. Great movie, good acting and it set the scene perfectly.
Still an entertaining movie even after all this time.
A milestone film which still shines although aspects are a little dated.
I had an image in my mind from seeing The Graduate several times when it first came out and therefore, perhaps expected a little too much. I still enjoyed it, but not as much as I had anticipated. We (and movies) have all moved on. Dustin Hoffman gives a very good performance as The Graduate (looks so young!), and Mrs Robinson is still "desireable" in her way, but perhaps a little too obvious for today's seduction scenes. A question:- Whatever happened to Katherine Ross? Looks lovely in this movie and later, in Butch Cassidy, then she seemed to disappear from films. A pity.
