The Graduate

Here is a definite classic comedy. The story follows a young college grad (Dustin Hoffman, in his first major performance) who is seduced by his parents' best friend, Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft). He spends a good deal of his time sleeping with her, but a dilemma occurs when Hoffman falls in love with Bancroft's daughter (Katherine Ross).

There are plenty of memorable moments in this film. Watching Bancroft and Hoffman work together is the greatest thing about this film. The movie rocketed Hoffman's and Ross's careers, and certainly boosted Bancroft's even more. The last scene is the most famous and was later spoofed in "Wayne's World 2". The soundtrack, by Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, fits the movie to a T. An all around good movie, and a chance to see Hoffman in one of his first roles.

Note: Look fast for Richard Dreyfuss as a student at Berkeley and Buck Henry as a hotel clerk.
