This movie looked dated by 1996, '97
I never saw this movie in 1994, even though I was a teenager at the time and about 5 years younger then these characters. So I guess I was ripe to idolize these older, cooler 20 somethings. I was 18, 19 in 1994, but I didn't see the movie until a few years later in 1997. By the late 90s, this movie already looked absolutely ridiculous and embarrasingly dated. Now there were plenty of grunge going on in the early-mid 90s, but hardly anyone really acted like these idiots in real life.
And these characters are are all stereotypes and caricutures of slackers/stoners from every other era and movie made. i.e., people who act way smarter and intellectual then they really are, quoting Thoreau and Kurt Vonnegut, but stuck in dead end jobs while trying to pass off being a stagnant loser as something hip and cool to aspire to.
