From Back Cover:

Kevin Costner leads a laugh-filled lost weekend.

College is over, real life can start. Well, not yet. The Groovers, five University of Texas roommates, class of '71, find breaking up is hard to do. So Gardner, the groop's official "Groover and Shaker," decides that he and his buddies should chuck their worries about an imminent wedding, the Vietnam draft and crashing the working world to take off in Phil's Caddy for a final footloose tear across the Lone Star State.

Join their far-flung post-graduation Fandango. A dynamic cast, including rising stars Kevin Costner as party guy Gardner and Judd Nelson as straight-arrow Phil, and the clever script and direction of first-timer Kevin Reynolds (Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves, Waterworld) make it a rip-roaring ride. Live American Graffiti and Breaking Away, Fandango is a jovial, joyful look at growing up - and busting loose.

My Comments:

I've only watched this movie once - years ago - and with my VCR broken, it's unlikely that I'll ever watch it again. I don't remember much about this film except to say that really didn't like it.
