More American Graffiti

"Grim"

More American Graffiti Review


Six years after the massively popular American Graffiti, the bulk of the original cast (sans Richard Dreyfuss) reunited for this sequel, a textbook example of how even a great idea usually fails to carry more than one picture. The final scene of the original film tells us what would happen to the principals in later years, and More essentially turns that 30 seconds of text into a grueling 110-minute experience. Alternately boring and insulting, the film dutifully chronicles Vietnam and the far-out groooovy '60s (plus numerous unmemorable side plots), all topics which have been done better in other films, 20 times over.
