This 1967 Oscar-winning film by legendary director Mike Nichols
is about a love triangle: an anxious college grad, his mature lover, and her co-ed daughter. Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman
) returns to his parents' SoCal home where they expect great things. At his homecoming party, he and a longtime family friend, Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft
aka Mrs. Mel Brooks
) begin an ongoing affair that eventually fizzles out.

When her daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross
) visits, Ben is coerced into taking her on a date that begins as the worst ever and ends with the two actually liking each other, which her mother tries to deter. It sounds like a time-honored trope, and true, some things are still relatable, but others are not just dated, but ridiculous.
