CAN'T HARDLY WAITAnd ... we're back! Sorry for that short, impromptu break, but now we've returned to discuss the seemingly schizophrenically plotted high school tale "Can't Hardly Wait," starring Ethan Embry, Jennifer Love Hewitt, and every other "twentysomething who can play teen" Hollywood had to offer in 1998.

Things get off to a bumpy when the CAN'T WAIT! crew can't decide whose movie this actually is (or should be) or why only five characters are given names while the rest of the cast are called things like "Girl Whose Party It Is" and "Real Homeboy." Ugh. Other topics discussed include: a cast of hundreds, Pop Tart flavors, high schoolers with borderline personality disorder, and cameos vs. walk-ons vs. drop-ins.

Tune in next time, when we talk about Tony's pick: John Carpenter's '80s classic "They Live."
