    It's the last day of school, somewhere in Middle America, summer 1976. Watergate is four years old and America is about to weather Jimmy Carter's misery-index regime. When that bell rings, all hell will break loose. High school jocks are lurking outside junior-high classrooms, custom-made paddles in hand, to ceremonially sting the posteriors of boys about to be fall freshmen.

    Meanwhile, the female seniors are cooking up similarly abusive rites of passage for the incoming freshmen girls. After the pain and humiliation, multiple partying is planned, with beer, loud music and dope. It's going to be a wild night.

    Richard Linklater's satirical take on high school life in the 1970s is not only funny and entertaining. It's practically a historic document of life during the smiley-face button era -- when people wore wide-bottomed pants, listened to Edgar Winter and (to paraphrase a "Dazed and Confused" ad banned by the Motion Picture Association of America) actually inhaled when they smoked marijuana.

    Pretty much the best movie ever. And drunk Mitch Kramer in the final scene with his mom trying to convince her he's sober is the best drunk acting ever. Me every weekend in high school.

    Love that flick.

    They're showing it at The Wiltern, one of the best concert venues in L.A. on 4/20.
