Good ol' 6 for the Sixties!

Not a bad film whatsoever, but very overrated. Yes, there's some fairly good actors, but it honestly still didn't help prevent this film from the 'dated' bug. It's such a film of it's time.

It only just got itself on the IMDb 250, but only just, and I'm pretty certain in a few years, it'll be off there for good. I think, in order to enjoy this more than I did, I think it would take ... read more

I would probably say that The Graduate probably is the most famous romantic-comedy of all time and it deserves to be. I have seen a few things that have ripped off a few bits from this film especially the relationship between Finch and Stifler?s mum in the American Pie trilogy. The Graduate is filled with a lot of hilarious comedy, drama and romance. I think that most romantic comedies have drama ... read more

Very overrated in my opinion. Dustin Hoffman is a great actor, but his performance here is just okay. Moreover, the development of the story is boring, the plot twist doesn't convince me, not even their characters. The end of the movie, which had the intention to be a surprise, came out to be completely unnecessary, and in fact it ruined the whole movie. A more realistic finale would have made thi... read more

"Aún no entiendo que le ven a esta película, tal vez que algunos visualizaron en el protagonista las malas decisiones que quisieron tomar cuando estaban entrando a la adultez. Trata de un vago que sin decidir que saber que hacer con su futuro decide ser el amante de la mujer de un amigo de su padre. Si eso no es suficiente se enamora de su hija. Es increíble como todos actúan como idiotas."

“Much has been said about how good The Graduate is. I have one word really to say, Amen! This film is wonderful in every way, from the cinematography, to the acting to the soundtrack.

ACTING- The acting is really quite excellent in The Graduate. In his first major role, Dustin Hoffmann(a great actor) is sensational as the innocent college graduate, while Anne Bancroft is also excellent as the older woman who seduces him. And Katherine Ross was surprisingly effective as the daughter Hoffmann's character falls for.

DIRECTION- Mike Nichols' direction is very, very good, easily one of his best directing jobs. He ensures flawlessly that there isn't a single wasted scene while watching The Graduate. And in my opinion, he thoroughly deserved the best director Oscar.

"“Nichols had only made one full-length film before this, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966)… is a master at this kind of ironic drama.” -Alec Baldwin “ showed us Anne Bancroft in a light we’d never seen before because most people just knew her from The Miracle Worker at this point.” -Robert Osborne"

" Notes: To be honest, it has been ages since I have seen this movie and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Still, I remember very well when I saw the damned thing. Indeed, basically, since this movie had quite a reputation, I had some really high expectations but, to be honest, I thought it was a decent watch but it didn’t really blow me away. I don’t know, the concept definitely had some potential but, in my opinion, it could have been better developed. On top of that, I though"

"5.2.2021 Uusintakatselu. Edelleen hyvin sympaattinen ja suhteellisen omalaatuinen, mainiosti rytmitetty, kuvattu ja näytelty komedia, joskaan en ollut aiemmilla katsomiskerroilla joskus vuosia sitten huomannut, miten epätasainen tämä on. Ensimmäinen puolisko on nimittäin aivan nerokas, mutta Robinsonin tyttären stalkkausvaiheen startattua filmi alkaa haahuilemaan ja kadottaa aiemmin niin vahvan tatsin punaisesta langastaan, ja lisäksi hahmot alkavat toimia ja käyttäytyä hämmentävä"

""The Graduate" is one of those strange romantic comedies that became a countercultural landmark of cinema. Disillusioned college graduate Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman), who has little idea for his future, gets a seductive rendezvous from Mrs. Robinson, a friend of his parents (William Daniels and Elizabeth Wilson). During their private sexual affair, he gets a surprise visit from Mrs. Robinson’s daughter Elaine (Katherine Ross) and he immediately falls in love with her despite his promise"
