It's amazing how classic movies like this deal with issues that don't go away and grow with you as you get older. Mrs. Robinson isn't just a modern women dealing with the dissatisfaction of an overly-intelligent housewife in a post-feminist world, she may also be one of the first on-screen examples of a woman who falsely accuses a man of rape. This is not the first time I've seen this film but it is the first time I consciously noticed that Mrs. Robinson tells Elaine that Ben raped her when that couldn't be further from the truth. The naive Elaine initially believes her mother since she "knows" that parents don't cheat and they certainly don't lie, especially mothers! The commentaries for this films are interesting, especially Dustin Hoffman's as he humorously discusses dealing with body parts, co-stars and Hollywood from the perspective of a less-than-typical leading man during a strange period of transition in Hollywood and America. A classic film and as relevant as ever as it deals with alienation and history repeating itself.

This 1960’s movie, though dated, still provides great entertainment value. Starring a young Dustin Hoffman, as a straight, naïve boy, who nervously starts an affair with a worldly older woman makes for many funny situations. As he gains confidence and becomes more assertive, he meets his lover’s daughter and hopelessly falls for her, much to her mother's alarm and dismay. Set to Simon and Garfunkel music, this film is still very much worth watching.

This DVD Video is Great for ages 11 - 70! It hilarious, although; the Movie lightly suggestive! Although; this Movie is more of a Drama than a Comedy. PG 13.

The first time I saw The Graduate I expected it to be non stop laugh out loud funny, but how I was wrong. It starts out as a comedy, and then slowly turns into a drama. This is a fantastic film, it is well scripted, well directed, and wonderfully acted. Dustin Hoffman does some of his finest work, and the supporting cast is remarkable as well. This is one of those classic movies that nobody should miss. I highly recommend this movie to anyone and everyone, this film will not leave you disappointed.

This iconic movie of 60's mores still holds up well. Dustin Hoffman is brilliant in his first starring role.

Benjamin: It's like I was playing some kind of game, but the rules don't make any sense to me. They're being made up by all the wrong people. I mean no one makes them up. They seem to make themselves up.

Benjamin: Mrs. Robinson, I can't do this anymore. Mrs. Robinson: You what? Benjamin: This is all terribly wrong. Mrs. Robinson: Do you find me undesirable? Benjamin: Oh no, Mrs. Robinson. I think, I think you're the most attractive of all my parents' friends. I mean that.

Benjamin: Listen to me. What happened between Mrs. Robinson and me was nothing. It didn't mean anything. We might just as well have been shaking hands. Mr. Robinson: Shaking hands? Well, that's not saying much for my wife, is it?
