"[The characters] have been written with care and perception and played with equal aplomb by a roster of talented young actors."—Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times

"A high-spirited, synthetically raucous house-party comedy."—Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

"Flip through any yearbook, and you'll find the stock characters who amusingly populate Can't Hardly Wait."—Janet Maslin, The New York Times

A Tape Me Back selection | 25th Anniversary Screening

School's out, and an entire graduating class -- from football stars and cool girls to complete nerds -- gathers at a wealthy classmate's home for a party. There, the artistic Preston (Ethan Embry) hopes to move in on Amanda (Jennifer Love Hewitt), the beauty he has admired from afar since a chance encounter nearly four years prior. Dorky William (Charlie Korsmo) schemes to pay back meathead Mike (Peter Facinelli) for years of bullying, and would-be rapper Kenny (Seth Green) gets locked in a room with snarky Denise (Lauren Ambrose).

Tape Me Back

When VHS beat Betamax in the tape wars, it set the course of home entertainment for the better part of the next two decades. By the 90s, the format was in its heyday and became synonymous with staples of the era. With this Rooftop mini-series we explore some of the archetapes of the moment on the format they were presented in. So come join us as we pop the tape into the VCR and travel back in time this summer.
