While it is often overshadowed by other ’90s teen films like Clueless or She’s All That, Can’t Hardly Wait is a charming addition to the genre. There isn’t really anything new here… an average guy gets the popular girl, there’s an unrealistically awesome high school party, and the conflict between nerds and jocks is alive and well. However, a charming cast and a funny script manage to elevate it above typical teen fare. It also featured many now-popular actors before they were famous in cameo roles.
Star Jennifer Love Hewitt tweeted today about wanting to have a reunion film, and Ethan Embry echoed her nostalgia. While it is unlikely that Preston and Amanduuuuh are still together (c’mon, you know it’s true), it could be fun to check in on these characters. While we may not know what’s happened to their fictional counterparts, the actors who played them are still alive and well, so let’s check in with the cast of Can’t Hardly Wait and see what they’ve been up to since 1998.
