At the age of 24, McConaughey was already pushing the creep factor as David Wooderson, who recited D&C‘s most iconic line: “That’s what I love about these high school girls, man.

7,993,039 dollars earned at the box office


Considering all the love for D&C, it was hardly a box office hit. While the film recouped its $6.9M budget, it came and went with little fanfare. It was until its DVD release that fans rediscovered the film – making it the cult classic it is today.
