Everybody Wants Some!! movie quotes follow a group of college freshmen who are also on the school's baseball team in the 1980s. Written and directed by Richard Linklater, the comedy-drama is called a "spiritual sequel" to his 1993 hit Dazed and Confused. Everybody Wants Some!! opened in theaters on March 30, 2016.

In Everybody Wants Some!!, Jake (Blake Jenner) begins college and while he was named a member of the baseball team, he has a lot of work to do before he is accepted by fellow players. Along with Kenny (Ryan Guzman), Glen (Tyler Hoechlin), Finnegan (Glen Powell), Willoughby (Wyatt Russell) and Billy (Will Brittain), among many others, Jake tries his best to find his place in the world and his pack amongst his classmates.

So as the baseball players deal with common themes like partying, hazing and schoolwork, they learn about themselves and each other in the process. They even get some attention from the opposite sex, including from Beverly (Zoey Deutch) and Val (Dora Madison Burge).

Everybody Wants Some!! joins theaters to close out March 2016 alongside Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, The Brothers Grimsby, 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Willoughby: You've got to embrace your inner strange, man. Just be weird.

Jake points out, quite astutely, that college is all about trying everything and finding your place in life. So if that involves disco dance, being a punk for a night and embracing the strange, so be it.

Two Rules


Coach Gordon: Two rules: No booze in this house. Number two, no girls upstairs in this bedrooms.
