* KavorkaMan: Mr. Wolfe, the CoolTeacher Curt shares a smoke with and talks to outside the high school dance, is first seen surrounded by admiring girl students (and even implied to [[TeacherStudentRomance be in a relationship with one]]) despite the fact that he's not remotely handsome.

** Pretty much all of them. Even Curt's Citroën, which is sort of presented as TheAllegedCar in the context of the film, looks impossibly boss at this late date.

* NothingButHits: The whole movie is scored from end to end with late-'50s and early-'60s pop hits. Notably absent is [[ElvisPresley Elvis]], whose licensing proved too expensive. (As it was, a large chunk of Lucas' budget for the film went toward acquiring music rights for the soundtrack.) Later Lucas would finally afford the rights to use an Elvis song, "Hound Dog" in the [[Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull fourth]] ''Franchise/IndianaJones'' movie, set in 1957.

** At one point a movie theater can be seen with the marquee advertising Coppola's ''Dementia 13''. (Technically an anachronism, since that film didn't come out until 1963.)

Added DiffLines:

** Milner, the sympathetic cool drag racer, doesn't have a hot girlfriend. Instead, he ends up having to babysit an awkward 13-year-old girl who annoys the stew out of him.


Added DiffLines:

** There are no [[JerkJock Jerk Jocks]] or AlphaBitch characters with any real screen time. The nerdiest character idolizes the drag racer, who shows a lot of [[BigBrotherInstinct Big Brother Instincts]] to the nerd. The NiceGuy main characters have JerkAss tendencies from time to time. As much as Milner and Carol get on each others nerves, they end up teaming up to pull a prank on a group of jerks they encounter, and by the end of the movie they've gotten to like one another.

A huge (and unexpected) hit for Creator/{{Universal}}, ''American Graffiti'' established Lucas's box-office bona fides, kicked the already-existing '50s nostalgia boom of TheSeventies into high gear, and provided the template for countless teen comedies to follow. The film is also notable for its EnsembleCast of soon-to-be famous young actors including Creator/RichardDreyfuss, Creator/RonHoward, [[Series/LaverneAndShirley Cindy Williams]], [[Series/OneDayAtATime1974 Mackenzie Phillips]], [[Series/ThreesCompany Suzanne Somers]], Creator/HarrisonFord, and Creator/KathleenQuinlan. Also featured is famous radio disc jockey Creator/WolfmanJack playing a version of himself.
