Everybody Wants Some!!

A freshman learns the hierarchy of his Texas college baseball team's house while partying and bonding with his new teammates during the first weekend before the start of school. Richard Linklater's Everybody Wants Some!! is too much of a Dazed and Confused rehash, this time with too many obnoxious, unlikable characters. However, there are some good observations on competition and comradery, the sole baseball sequence is worthwhile, and a romantic subplot, which in and of itself leaves something to be desired, leads an excellent penultimate scene.
