For This Year's Graduates: Five Memorable Ceremonies
Congratulations! Here are some graduation clips to enjoy while you fill out those Sallie Mae forebearance forms.
5. I Love You, Beth Cooper (2009)
Thanks to Schaefer beer and [harmless tobacco], I actually remember very little about my own high school graduation. One thing I'm sure didn't happen was our valedictorian confessing her love for me in her speech. Carie, if you're reading this, I forgive you.
Shot in Houston, which is about the only thing memorable about this clumsy paean to Generation X. And you know you're getting old when it annoys you that Lelaina ends up with prick extraordinaire Troy and not Michael, who at least had a job.
Henry didn't graduate from "college," man...his education was on the streets. Here we see him receiving his Baccalaureate in Mob Studies which, given today's job market, might be the new graduate's best option.
Bruce Dern's rant against the future is still the best graduation speech I've ever heard, though I would've put a lot more stock in it if the guy didn't fantasize about cheating on Ann-Margret later in the movie.
Not since Beetle Bailey has there been such a realistic depiction of military life. I remember watching this and thinking if the United States ever got into a convention war with the Soviet Union, we'd be screwed. Thank god for ICBMs.
