Kind of fun, but I never understood what the fuss was about.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Highly entertaining, insightful mosaic about youngsters ``coming of age'' after high school graduation in 1962. Often hilarious, always on-target, this film made Dreyfuss a star and boosted many other careers. Reedited to 112m. for 1978 reissue to play up latter-day stars. Look fast for Kay Lenz at the dance. Sequel: MORE AMERICAN GRAFFITI. Techniscope.
