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

Fantastic Hoffman debut!

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

Having flicked through one of those '1001 films to watch before you die' books, I set off to find a few 'classics' that had previously passed me by. 'The Graduate' was one of these and I was fairly unimpressed by it.
I found it watchable, and enjoyable in places, but I certainly won't be watching it again. The best bits of the film are its more comic moments, which Hoffman pulls off in a fa... read more

Las películas más pendejas que he visto (92 movies items)

"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.
