"Ethan Embry and Jennifer Love Hewitt star in this teen comedy originally released in 1998 and now finally 10 years later we are getting a special edition DVD. So what can you expect from the 10 Year Reunion Edition DVD of Can't Hardly Wait? Well Extras will include:
* an original commentary with filmmakers and cast (no big deal as this was on the original DVD release)
* a commentary with filmmakers and cast - 10 Years Later
* Featurette "Huntington High Class of `98" Reunion
* Featurette "Can't Hardly Wait: The Making of a Teen Classic"
* Featurette "The Life of the Party"
* exclusive deleted scenes (at last)
* A You Know You're `90's If..." trivia game
* and the "Can't Get Enough Of You Baby" Smashmouth music video (which was also on the original release)
All in all it has the makings to be great. I am just happy this amazing movie is finally getting the attention it deserves!"

"An excellent choice of cast - Jennifer Love Hewitt ( I Know What You Did Last Summer), Ethan Embry (Disturbing Behaviour), Seth Green (Buffy, The Vampire Slayer) and new faces like Lauren Ambrose, Charlie Kosmo and Peter Facinelli (Dancer, Texas, Pop. 81). So, Amanda Beckett (Love Hewitt) has been Preston Meyers (Ethan Embry) love interest since he first saw her. Now he has his chance to dive right in when Amanda dumps her ex-boyfriend, Mike (Peter Facinelli)! This movie is like one of those where everyone has a main part - it's excellent!"
Good Jennifer Love Hewitt Vehicle

"Bashed by critics, audience viewers have given this movie cult status, and deservedly so. Good fun performances by everyone but of course the standout is Jennifer Love Hewitt who plays the most popular girl at school Amanda Becket. The story goes something like this. Since it's their last day of school Preston Meyers (Ethan Embry) sees this as his last chance to tell the girl of his dreams (Becket) just how much he loves her. While his best friend Denise Fleming (Lauren Ambrose) has doubts about it. Telling him, what if she doesn't like you? Ever since Amanda's (Hewitt) break up with popular jock Mike Dexter (Peter Facinelli) Becket is the most sought at girl at the party. Now each person has their own agenda at this party. For instance Embry (Preston) wants to tell Hewitt he loves her, and William Lichter (Charlie Korsmo) has his own agenda. William has been humiliated his entire life by Dexter (Facinelli). And feels tonight at the party is his perfect way of getting back at him for all the years of misery Dexter put him through. But that's not the only thing going on at this party. Everyone wants to get "lucky". And no one does more than Kenny Fisher (Seth Green), who in my opinion is the funniest character in the movie! With so much going on you can tell this will turn out to be a funny fast paced teen comedy that I'm sure all teens and even adults will enjoy. Teens might think Seth Green gives the best performance, he certainly is the funniest, and might just want to watch the movie for him. But I think Hewitt is the highlight of the movie. Some might like to take notice to the brief cameos seen in the movie by Melissa Joan Hart, Jerry O' Connell, and a voice over by Liv Tyler. Here's a good clean, and funny teen comedy all will enjoy."
