  • Theatrical Release: September 23, 1993. The movie was filmed on location in Texas, with the cast and crew living in a hotel. Linklater's 1991 directorial debut film, SLACKER, is similar to DAZED AND CONFUSED in its examination of adolescent nonconformity. The film pays homage to earlier teen angst films. Direct allusions are made to CARRIE and AMERICAN GRAFFITI, the latter of which seems to have served as a thematic and artistic template for DAZED AND CONFUSED. According the Wall Street Journal, the Hollywood studio had to pull advertisements for the film because drug references violated Motion Picture Association of America's guidelines. Gramercy Pictures president Russell Schwartz claims the MPAA has cracked down on films that are drug related. The early marketing campaign for DAZED AND CONFUSED included suggestive slogans: "See It with a Bud," and "The Film Everybody's Toking About." But the MPAA's objections were directed at the line: "Finally! A Movie for Everyone Who DID Inhale," a satirical comment on Bill Clinton's infamous line about youthful marijuana smoking. DAZED AND CONFUSED cost approximately $6 million dollars to produce and was given the same name as a 1969 Led Zeppelin song. Renee Zellwegger appears uncredited as a high school student who attracts the attention of Wooderson (Matthew McConaughey). "Martha Washington was a hip, hip, hip, hip lady..."--Slater (Rory Cochrane) "That's what I love about high school girls: I get older, they stay the same age."--Wooderson "That's what I'm talkin' about!"--Slater
