Can’t Hardly Wait is a 1998 U.S teen comedy film written and directed by Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont. It stars an ensemble cast including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Ethan Embry, Charlie Korsmo, Lauren Ambrose, Peter Facinelli, and Seth Green, and is notable for a number of “before-they-were-famous” appearances by teen stars.
This movie ranked number 44 on Entertainment Weekly’s list of the 50 Best High School Movies.
The filmmakers were inspired by their observation that in most teen films the best scenes were the party scenes, and decided to make a movie set entirely at a party. The characters are played as high school stereotypes, but it’s highly likeable, mise en scène setting and performances are charged through with chaotic appeal.
Can’t Hardy Wait is well known for its soundtrack, with some very big, popular anthem type hits, such as Can’t Get enough o You Baby by Smash Mouth, Paradise City by Guns and Roses and Tricky by Run DMC.
An entertaining film, Can’t Hardly Wait was released on June 12, 1998 and grossed $8,025,910 in its opening weekend. Its total domestic gross was $25,605,015, more than double its production budget.
