: The following is seen on the dvd for The Graduate
: "Just one word: plastic."
: And in reviews of The Graduate.
: And I heard it on TV. And I still hear it on TV.
: And I just viewed the dvd. And I vewed that part of the dvd again twice. And I still don't understand why that line was even in the film or why anyone ever repeated it on the cover of the dvd or in any review or on TV. I just don't get it.
The notion that "Plastic was: 'Considered by hippies to be the epitome of what is wrong with our society.' " makes me feel I have a better understanding of why the phrase was stuck out there near the beginning of the movie and has been repeated so often over the decades.
