Everybody Wants Some!! (2016) Synopsis: Thursday, August 28, 1980

Jake Bradford (Blake Jenner) arrives at his college three days before the start of classes. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 He enters the baseball house to the members of the team. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 He first meets McReynolds (Tyler Hoechlin) and Roper (Ryan Guzman), who both razz Jake for being a pitcher. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 He goes upstairs and meets Niles (Juston Street), Finnegan (Glen Powell), stoner Willoughby (Wyatt Russell), Dale (J. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Quinton Johnson), fellow freshman Plummer (Temple Baker), and his roommate Billy, aka Beuter (Will Brittain). Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 He’s called that by the other guys to have the most “country bumpkin” name they could think of.

Jake joins McReynolds, Plum, Finn, and Dale as they go around campus inviting girls to a party at their house. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 The guys drive by a girl named Beverly (Zoey Deutch) and her roommate (Sophia Taylor Ali). Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Although neither are taken by the guys’ attempts to hit on them, Beverly comments that she likes “the quiet one in the back” (Jake).

The guys then go to the nearby bar, The Fox, where they meet other players on the team, Nesbit (Austin Amelio), Brumley (Tanner Kalina), and Coma (Forrest Vickery). Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 They all drink and exchange banter.

The team meets with the coach to discuss the rules of the house. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 That is mainly no drinking and no girls allowed in the rooms, which all the guys find lame.

The guys go out to the nightclub ‘Sound Machine’ and dance with some girls. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Dale points out that Finn has a move where he tells girls that he has an average penis size to seem humble, as opposed to guys that love to brag about their size. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 They end up taking the girls back to the house for a party. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 McReynolds, Roper, Jay, and Finn all go to their rooms to hook up with girls. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Jake wants to bring his girl up to his room, but Beuter and his buddies don’t wanna leave, so Jake takes her to his car.

On Friday morning, Beuter heads back home for a couple of days because he worries his girlfriend might be pregnant. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Later, the guys hang out around town, such as at the arcade where Jake shows Dale the trick to winning at Space Invaders, which is to get the aliens when they reach the last row since they won’t shoot at the player.

The guys go back to Sound Machine that night, but they’re forced to leave when Niles gets drunk and rowdy, attempting to pick a fight with a bartender. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 The team heads to a country music club without Niles, for fear that he’ll scare away the ladies. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 At the country club, Jake feels out of place, but Willoughby tells him that he has to embrace his inner weirdness, and not be the person that the others want him to be.

Come Saturday, Jake joins Willoughby, Dale, and Plum in Willoughby’s room as they take hits from his bong and discuss “The Twilight Zone” and Van Halen, among other things. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 They try some “telepathic stuff”, with the guys trying to guess what Willoughby is thinking of.

Jake plays ping-pong with McReynolds with some of the other guys watching. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Jake beats McReynolds, who gets angry and chucks his paddle at the wall, breaking it. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 The other guys start to chant Jake’s name.

Jake, Plum, Finn, and Brumley walk around the neighborhood and run into Jake’s high school buddy Justin (Michael Monsour). Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 He invites the guys inside his home for some beers, and he later brings them to a punk rock club where the guys watch Justin’s band play a punk rock version of the “Gilligan’s Island” theme song.

The guys throw another party at the house that night, wherein some girls participate in a mud-wrestling event, with Finn joining in and getting slammed into the mud by one of the girls. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Meanwhile, Jake leaves some flowers and a note on Beverly’s door.

On Sunday morning, Jake receives a phone call from Beverly, and the two are now properly acquainted. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 She is surprised to learn that he is on the baseball team, as she originally believed that athletes were dumb, but she sees him differently. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 The two arrange a meeting for that day. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Jake takes Beverly out for ice cream, and he learns that she is studying performing arts and has experience at an acting school.

In the afternoon, the team gathers for baseball practice. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Niles once again goes overboard with his behavior, such as throwing the ball into the parking lot and just acting like a jerk toward the other guys. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 After practice, the older teammates tape Jake, Plum, Brumley, and Nesbit to the wall as a freshman hazing ritual where they throw baseballs at the guys, one of which hits Plum in the nuts. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 After that, the team heads down to the lake for a swim.

The guys go to the cafeteria for some grub. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Dale comments to the freshmen that the older guys like McReynolds and Roper don’t really care about the freshman and would love to see them fail. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Plum and Nesbit then come in to tell the guys that Willoughby got kicked out of school after it was learned that he is really a 30-year-old guy that frequently transfers to different colleges to play baseball, and that his name isn’t even Willoughby. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 The only thing they found in his room was a Pink Floyd album with a big joint on top of it (which Plum and Nesbit smoked). Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 The guys figure that “Willoughby” was just a guy that didn’t have what it took to go pro, but loved baseball so much that he wanted to play however he could.

That night, the guys go to a party at another house, which happens to be a costume party. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Jake finds Beverly dressed as Alice (in Wonderland). Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Finn tries his “average penis” bit on one girl but gets cock-blocked by the other guys. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Later, the guys watch Beverly act out a “Dating Game” improv show as Alice, with two other guys as The Mad Hatter and The Queen of Hearts. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Jake steps in as The Cheshire Cat. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Afterward, he and Beverly hang out into the early hours of Monday by the lake and have their first kiss.

As classes are about to begin, Jake sleeps in Beverly’s room for a bit as she gets ready. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 They walk to their classes together before separating and kissing again. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Dale and Finn see this and tease him. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 Jake then heads to his first class and sits next to Plum. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 The two are confident about what college will bring them. Everybody Wants Some!! 2016 As class starts, Jake puts his head down on his desk to sleep and he smiles.

  1. Joshua Lipinski from Mansfield MA says:

    I can’t stand when ratings/reviews are rigged in order to get people towatch or buy something. If you look at the ‘top 1000 voters’ for thismovie, which are people who actually watch movies, they give it a 6.9.How in the heck did this get an 8+? (Well – it’s because the movieproducers were smart and got a bunch of people to review and rate themovie ahead of time…) The acting and writing is dreadful. Story goesabsolutely nowhere and is pointless. I was at least hoping the waterbed had something to do with anything. But of course, it didn’t. Actorslook like they’re 35 years old, and you want us to believe they’recollege freshmen? Has the director ever been to a bar before or seenhow awkward real people interact with each other at that age? Does thedirector know that people at bars or at parties are usually drunk,instead of the eloquently speaking, perfectly-dressed people in thismovie? Really pointless, waste of a good amount of money to have seenthis in theaters.

  2. aangelo-82368 from USA says:

    I honestly don’t know what to think of this movie. I was hoping for somuch more. Most of the actors did a good job but Some of the collegekids looked like they were 35 years old. The story just stunk. Afterthe fact that dazed and confused was one of my favorite movies I guessI was hoping for something just as good. This movie was beyond bad andsomething which looks like some high school kids put together. Itbounced around so much from topic to topic without actually gettinginto any of them. I kept waiting and waiting for the movie to get good.Then the credits started rolling and I turned to my girlfriend and saidthat’s it? what the hell did we just watch? I wasted 2 hours that illnever get back on a movie that the best part was the credits at theend. I’m sorry but i’m being honest. Not like a lot of these studioreviews to make you see the movie. Just bad. Very bad.

  3. E Canuck from Vancouver, Canada says:

    This was put together in an entertaining fashion. Trouble for me isthat I’d walk a mile to avoid the kind of people the film is about.Always did, when I was younger, avoid the bullying sexist jock andunless you are enamoured, you may not want some of a film thatcelebrates them off the Richter scale.

    There is also the fact that in this Mudville there are only shiny happypeople out of Hollywood wardrobe department and there’s littleresemblance to reality.

    That shouldn’t stop those who want college and youth myths big on AllAmerican ball-whacking, drinking, weed-smoking,look-how-crazy-we-all-are high spirits. There will be lots of peoplewho want some of that.

  4. cmjenks from San Francisco, CA says:

    Going in, I knew it would be similar to Dazed and Confused. This waslike Fifty Shades of Grey is to Twilight but worse, the plot (if youcan call it that) follows its predecessor more closely than Fifty.

    Like Dazed (which is better btw), it’s tough to put your finger on anactual plot. A freshman baseball player shows up to college, interactswith teammates/roommates, has fun, finds a girl. Shenanigans takeplace. So all you really have is a bit of character development, yetthe characters remain relatively static.

    I have to wonder, Who the heck has been reviewing this flick, paidshills? People that haven’t seen Dazed and Confused and think this isunique?

    Here are some of the characters to expect: Token well balancedprotagonist, Token reefer head, Token self-absorbed whack job, Tokenwitty womanizer, Token redneck, Token guy who is too old to be hangingout (same as reefer head), Token black guy, Token uber-competitiveleader, Token immature character, Token below-average intellectcharacter

    I honestly can’t believe they wrote in another character with an ageproblem–someone must have been a having a creative black void whenthis came to be. Another thing that didn’t evolve since Dazed -misogynistic attitudes. Most of the women are portrayed as easy andair-headed, except the protagonist’s love interest who thescriptwriters actually force the character to say is bright (unlike allthe other airheads.) This type of portrayal is growing a bit tired.Give the female characters a voice, it would have been so much moreinteresting, especially given the time frame.

    Pass on this one. Sure, it’s about nothing and you’ll leave with afeeling of nothingness. The guys are good looking and witty, theirshenanigans are charming albeit not unique, beneath the wit and charmis the stink of douchiness. So what?

  5. cb2369 from United States says:

    Everybody Wants Some!! was a perfect film for this moment: it consistsof little more than a bunch of overly-competitive jocks joking witheach other, partying, and trying to get laid over the course of threedays before school even starts. It’s intelligently written, fun,well-acted, and well-shot. What more could you ask for? Linklater, ofcourse, does it all in a slice of life fashion: the opening of the filmdoesn’t even attempt to describe what’s going to happen and the end ofthe film barely describes what happened beforehand. The movie is almostmeditative, and yet continually looking for stimulus in the largest andtiniest things… really whatever kind of stimulus they can get theirhands on. Story-wise, it unfolds over almost every part of the era,which is, as far as I could tell, undefined yet seemingly somewhereduring the 80s. Each night takes us to a different flavor of the time:disco, punk, you name it… but the genius of the script is that youdon’t really realize you’ve been given a tasting menu until you’vealready eaten everything. It just seems natural when it happens.Everything in this film seems natural, and that’s a credit to thedirector, but also the actors. I imagine casting was the most importantpart of putting this film together and it seems to have been a success:every actor kills their part. Were they even acting? I have a feelingthey were just being themselves. If you want to watch some kids messaround and laugh with them or at them, Everybody Wants Some!! not onlyis your movie, but probably will be your movie for a long time coming.

  6. dhultgren-59428 says:

    Well, I cannot compare this to Linklater’s previous work “Dazed andConfused”, but, a couple of months ago, I saw the trailer, and thought,”Man, this is going to be laugh out loud hysterics”. Was I wrong.

    The movie starts with Jake, the freshman pitcher prospect cruising in aCutlass 442, not bad for nostalgia (nice to see cars that still havesome gusto for real in films).

    Jake is a pitcher who lives in a frat house with about twelve otherball players who like to party and talk about getting laid, and playingsilly pranks on each other.

    Yes, there is a decent soundtrack starting with “My Sharona” from theKnack that opens the movie, but, the flaw is here: “Urgent” byForeigner was not released until 1981. Oops! And it seems a tad out ofplace for a bunch of rough and tumble kids to be singing word for wordto a rap song.

    The title of the movie is misleading “Everybody wants some!” is a VanHalen tune, that was released in 1980, but, we don’t get much airplayfrom hard rock or heavy metal in the sound track. No “Back in Black?”No Judas Priest? No Iron Maiden? This was the pinnacle of New Wave ofBritish Heavy Metal, and Ace of Spades from motorhead was released thesame year. Plenty of hard driving rock to really pack a punch toenliven the film a bit.

    Back to the plot: there really isn’t one, except the countdown to thefirst day of school, where the ball players go from party to party andmeet some strange characters along the way.

    I’d have to say the most interesting character(s) are Detroit, theintroverted, hard throwing, paranoid, humorless caricature that isfunny for a bit, but isn’t fleshed out enough to really meld in.

    The bearded virgin who is later kicked off the team, is perhaps themost reflective and philosophical character in the entire cast. Hetalks about the progression of one song on an album while the othersget high.

    Who put Willis from Diff’rent Strokes in the cast? That isn’t ToddBridges, is it? He acted very well to fit in, but I don’t see thathappening in Texas. And where are the bell bottoms? We only start toget a glimpse of the underground music scene when Jake stumbles uponhis long haired jean jacket adorned friend who wants to take the crewto a punk rock concert.

    As for the pranks, the knuckle challenge between the thin mustachioedfellow and the long haired shorter guy (who wins the challenge) is thefunniest bit, but hardly enough to warrant a great belly laugh. It’s asight gag.

    I looked at the Tomatometer, and it was very good for this film. Uh,what film were THEY watching? Where’s Pauline Kael when you need her?

  7. sage411 from United States says:

    I would give it a 1 if I didn’t enjoy the music. I started college inthe 80’s so I know what it was like. This is basically totally aboutsome baseball jocks that are getting together and “male bonding” beforeclasses actually start. With all the positive, and I must say idioticreviews of the film, my expectations were probably way too high. Thereare a few moments of chuckles and laughter but if you have zerointerest in baseball and aren’t a past sport jock, this film is not foryou. The background music was right on for the eighties and the partystuff was funny. Other than that, it just gets boring and too long. Allthe actors are “unknown” types and do fine job acting, but thestoryline is a total mess. Is this a comedy or some type of sports,jock film or whatever? Many critics say it is a statement about the80’s and will be appreciated later. TO be appreciated later it needs tobetter at anything.

    I am only glad that we didn’t pay top dollar to see this one and thisis one I will never purchase or look forward to seeing again. I justwant less of this crap. If you are determined to see this, wait forcable or broadcast. Not worth anyones money.

  8. (gsygsy) from london uk says:

    Another vanity project from this soft-centred writer/director. Aperfectly pleasant, oh-so-normal guy, played effortlessly by BlakeJenner, is our viewpoint as he befriends a bunch of caricatured lateadolescents. Mr Normal is not even a thinly disguised version of thewriter/director, who evidently saw his younger self as a beacon ofsanity in the midst of all that hormone-fuelled excess.

    The worst part of it is that Linklater has talent as a filmmaker. Thepiece is competently constructed and shot, and contains a couple ofwell-written scenes, notably a split-screen phone conversation betweenJenner and the movie’s only other credible character, played withoutaffectation by Zoey Deutsch.

    In CABIN IN THE WOODS the equivalent bunch of stereotypes gets rituallyslaughtered, a fate I several times wished on the quasi-charactershere.

    If you’re going to make a movie about Texas college baseball jocks in1980 (especially jocks on the most successful team on campus), you’reobliged to do something to let the audience know WHY those players arethe most gentle, open-minded college jocks they have ever, ever seen.It can’t just go unexplained, or it beggars belief. The movie is notintended to be a farce, quite clearly.

    Even the two most aggressive guys (the great batter and the manicpitcher) are ultimately adorably harmless. This is not how it works.Their conflict at a practice without coaches should end in a fistfightwhen the manic pitcher won’t shut up after getting beat. You don’t runyour mouth at a teammate after getting hit on. The manic pitcher’soutburst in the bar should also be far, far uglier, and it should endin a real fight. And the stuff that comes out of their mouths most ofthe time should be filthy as hell. I am NOT objecting to “gentlecomedy” as a genre. I’m objecting to the total lack of appropriateset-up in this one, and the ensuing unbelievability.

    And I’m not faulting the characters for being horny, drunk 21 year olds(played by mostly 30 year olds, for putatively some good reason, butreally because 21 year old actors wouldn’t be able to handle the houseof cards Linklater has set up here). I don’t think that young men aremonsters for getting laid and drinking on a free weekend beforecollege. (There are complaints about this movie from some corners ofthe internet that have “liberal puritan double-standard” written allover them. I am not coming from that corner.) But having played collegesports myself, and known other college athletes at the time and since,this is the LEAST awful group of 16 college jocks that I can possiblyimagine, and the movie is set in 1980 Texas. They may as well beunicorns.

    I understand that this is supposed to be a gentle, philosophicalcomedy, and I have no problem with that in theory. I would definitelywatch a movie where a given collection of jocks are great human beings,just out of the sheer creative audacity of seeing where that goes, andthe things you can do with genres that depict an idealized world. But Idon’t want to watch idealized college athletes (or any other group)unless I have some damn reason to know why there aren’t horrible humanbeings in that mix of 16 guys. The answer can’t just be “because thegenre is gentle, thoughtful comedy”. Give me something with a piece ofverisimilitude that I can hang onto. 16 golfers at Brown in 2016 haveworse people among them than this.

    So, oddly akin to The Revenant or Boyhood, the movie doesn’t work asrealism, nor does it work as something heightened; on top of that ithas 1-dimensional characters. I don’t want to see Acclaimed Director,the movie. Every movie must stand or fall on its own.

    ULTIMATELY MORE IMPORTANTLY, this weekend-before-college movie (likeany slice-of-life type of movie) will sink or swim on the quality ofthe bits, the moments, the character sketches. If each scene or momentis golden, all is forgiven, and it lives on in the way that The BigSleep or Shortcuts or Day for Night or The Big Lebowski are greatmovies. In those, perfect scene-by-scene charm wins the day. Truththrough Beauty.

    But in this particular movie, some of the bits, scenes, characters etc.are very good, while others are wholly bland, vague and threadbare.Could ‘philosophizing jocks’ get it right some times, and wrong sometimes, and just have some sophomoric marijuana ideas sometimes- sure,yes, why not? BUT EACH one of those scenes of ‘philosophizing jocks’has to be somehow really interesting without feeling overly polished,or phony, or done to death, or otherwise uncharming. It’s a purefancy-footwork kind of storytelling art. And half of the bits/scenes inthis movie have two left feet.

    This is the second movie in a row from Linklater that is not about reallife or real people but purports to be, while using facile charactersand after-lunch philosophizing. The first, Boyhood, was a full-throttlemelodrama with a grand gimmick. This one plays one sport with theequipment of another: College Hump-or-Die movie rules, but withhandmade character comedy gear. If you don’t see this, let me ask youone question: WHAT is it that makes the main character Jake a SPECIFICperson who hits it off with Beverly, another specific person, besidesthe genre fulfillment of ‘the two sensitive people find each other’??

    Nothing. Nothing but Blake Jenner and Zoey Deutch saying the lines withtalent. Can you say that about Say Anything, or are those twocharacters specific as hell, and therefore a response to the HighSchool Hump-or-Die movies, and not just a mutant version of one? Heck,college farce Animal House, the ultimate Hump-or-Die movie, has more tosay than this movie does.

    I’m now positive that Linklater is one director when working withactor/writers Hawke and Delpy, and quite another when he’s not.

    I’ve been a fan of Linklater since Slacker and in film after film he’sproved that you do not need a linear plot to create a satisfying andrevelatory movie experience. That is, if you have characters that arerichly crafted matched with actors giving indelible performances. Sadly(and I do mean that sincerely) “Everybody Wants Some!!” painfullyexhibits none of those two saving graces. It’s as needless as those twoexclamation points in the title and as alluring as running into an oldhigh school friend who wants to drag you to his house and show you oldhome movies for two hours.

    I think I understand what Linklater was going for here, but it’s stillnot an excuse for the snoozefest he delivers. I *believe* he was tryingfor something almost anthropological. That is, studying a very specifictype of American male (high-school star jock) in a specific time andplace (early ’80s Texas) who come to terms with the competitive natureof college (in general, but college sports, specifically). Obviouslythis comes from Linklater’s own experience but that alone doesn’t makeit interesting.

    The fact that it shares many similarities with Dazed and Confused isonly going to mystify and irritate most people, especially fans of thatearlier film, which was a much more involving and true-to-lifeportrayal than anything you see in this film. If you’ll remember, Dazedhad an encapsulated version of Everybody Wants Some embedded into it— namely Pink’s (Jason London) disenfranchisement of the wholehigh-school sports scene. If you look closely at the mostly unknowncast, you’ll notice more than a few similarities between the twocharacter line-ups in behaviors and physical appearance. But Dazed is arich film. The characters were anything but types (and they did notchant “catch phrases” as one reviewer states… the film’s fans createdthose) and each had many dimensions. None (even Ben Affleck’scharacter) were straight heroes or villains. By contrast, EverybodyWants Some’s cast of jocks and jock-babes rarely give us anything wedon’t expect or transcend any of the rampant stereotypes.

    For long stretches… I mean *LONG*… all you get are continuous partyscenes that, while well-directed, still don’t deliver anything thatwill keep your interest. There is little conflict, and nothing but thescantest surface interactions between the cast, none of whom giveanything but the most vanilla performances. This isn’t the first timeLinklater’s used a cast of unknowns (Dazed and particularly Slackerwere exactly that) but Everybody Wants Some’s crew is distinctlylacking in both style and charisma.

    I don’t think I’ve been as disappointed by any movie this year. And asother reviewers have said, the overwhelming positive critical receptionthis unstructured mess is receiving is disturbing, to say the least.Yes, Boyhood was amazing on so many levels and easily Linklater’s mostmasterful film, firing on all his strengths. EWS consistently plays toall his weakest.

    The more I think about it, EWS’s aims are closer to Slacker than Dazed.Slacker was just that… a virtual anthropological snapshot of AustinTexas college life circa 1988-1989. Only Slacker’s cast continuallygave the audience thoughtful, crazy, disturbing, and provoking wordsand actions. By contrast, EWS is about as soulful as a kegger. A funtime in the moment, but nothing you’ll remember after that. And thatmight be a very good thing.

    ** One footnote: If you have a surround sound set-up, you’ll noticethis film makes the same mistake as many others recently by puttingprimary audio in the rear channels, making the party scenes virtuallyimpossible to hear unless you just jack the center channel through theroof. Maybe this is something related to Dolby Atmos. Whatever it is,it’s irritating as hell. Nothing sinks a film faster than bad sound.
