'Everybody Wants Some!!' free movie tickets

In what's billed as the "spiritual sequel" to director Richard Linklater's classic "Dazed and Confused," a similar group of party-hearty jocks looks for a good time as they declare their independence — set in college in the early 1980s rather than in a '70s high school. You can win a pair of tickets to see "Everybody Wants Some!!" at the Loft.

From the Atlantic:

A car packed with college baseball players rolls through a Texas town, its passengers shamelessly trolling for dates. “My Sharona” by The Knack plays in the background as these handsome jocks trade dirty verbal barbs, try out pickup lines, and make mischief in their dilapidated frat house. As such, Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!! should be a headache, an unnecessary rehash of the ribald college comedy. It’s just the opposite: a delightfully shaggy odyssey through the half-baked thoughts and desires of an amiable gaggle of bros. It wins you over without ever seeming to try, like a goofy joke you can’t help but smile at, and the result is a comedy that deserves its place in Linklater’s pantheon alongside his 1993 cult masterpiece Dazed and Confused.

That '93 film is known for bringing early attention to the work of members of the ensemble cast such as Milla Jovovich, Ben Affleck , Parker Posey, Joey Lauren Adams and Matthew McConaughey — whose memorable turn as Wooderson has nearly typecast him for the rest of his career.

From our friends at the Loft Cinema:

Dubbed a “spiritual sequel” to his 1993 coming-of-age/hangout film Dazed and Confused, Everybody Wants Some!! finds writer/director Richard Linklater (Boyhood) shifting his focus from high schoolers in 1976 to college life in 1980.

Freshman Jake (Blake Jenner) is the newest addition to the baseball team at a small Texas college, and he is quickly swept up in the rowdy, competitive atmosphere of the house where the entire squad lives. As he and the other players crash one party after the next in search of a good time (and good-looking gals), he finds himself falling in love with an artsy student named Beverly (Zoey Deutch). Tyler Hoechlin, Ryan Guzman, Wyatt Russell, Glen Powell, J. Quinton Johnson, Will Brittain, and Juston Street co-star in this hilarious comedy. (Dir. by Richard Linklater, 2016, USA, 116 mins. Rated R)
