Fandango ()

directed by
featuring Kevin Costner, Judd Nelson, Sam Robards, Chuck Bush, Brian Cesak

The still unknown Kevin Costner carries this film that involves five college roommates on a last "fandango" before they separately face the harsh realities of an unpredictable future. It is 1971, and the Vietnam War has not yet ended. Gardner Barnes (Costner) has extended his college years by six semesters in an attempt to stave off the rapidly approaching future, Kenneth (Sam Robards) has just canceled his wedding in a drunken look at reality, Lester (Brian Cesak) loves alcohol and tags along with the group just to have a good time, Dorman (Chuck Bush) is devoted to existentialism and flights of poetic fancy, and Phil (Judd Nelson) is barely a member of the group because he is consorting with the enemy: he is a member of ROTC. This unlikely mismatch cavorts through several classic college pranks, among them taking bets on daredevil acts like skydiving into the middle of nowhere. As their high jinks continue, it becomes apparent that their real desire is not to live a wild life for its own sake, but to postpone the moment when they will have to leave school and its lifestyle behind them. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi Hide synopsis

One of the best roadtrip movies of all time

by Dustin3539 on Nov 11, 2008

This is one of my all time favorite films. 4 friends take off on a roadtrip one last time before entering the real world (and in this case the Vietnam War). It is a great study on not wanting to grow up and the choices we make once we do. Fantastic. You must check it out! More
