Variety - 02/17/1988
"...SCHOOL DAZE touches on some important themes....Fishburne brings great authority to his role..."

Plot Synopsis:

At this African American college, amid gala coronations, football, fraternities, parades, and parties, a group of buddies find themselves caught up in romance, relationship rituals, and rivalries during one outrageous homecoming weekend. The story follows two cousins who have opposing attitudes when it comes to the purpose of college: learning versus partying. Spike Lee's sprawling exploration of the tensions that are present on black college campuses is an exhilarating blend of surreal musical, comedy, and poignant social criticism.
