In 1993, director Richard Linklater fresh off his indie surprise hit Slacker was given the opportunity to make his first studio film. Set in 1976 and following a handful of high school students on the last day of school, Dazed and Confused recieved little fanfare when it was released, only to find second life on video and midnight showings to become a cult classic that ignited the careers of many of today's A-list stars. But does the film deserve the love or should it fade away? MovieDude Eric, Kent, Chris and special guest D.X. Ferris find out.
