Honestly, if you can’t relate to early 1980s culture and/or sports culture and/or college guy culture, you might not get “Everybody Wants Some!!” (2016). But I don’t really give a shit, because I thought it was effing hilarious (I don’t think Richard Linklater gives a shit either, or he wouldn’t have put two – count ’em, two – exclamation points in the title.). All-star freshman baseball recruit arrives in College Town the weekend before classes begin. Hijinks ensue. Meanwhile, wisdom gets handed down so effortlessly, it seems accidental. It takes you to a fascinating place, but perhaps only if you’ve been there before.
