To paraphrase the most famous line in "Dazed and Confused," we keep getting older, but the movie stays the same age. A panoramic look at the last day of high school in a Texas suburb in 1976, the Richard Linklater comedy seems as fresh as it did when it was released 20 years ago (on September 24, 1993), in part because of the energy and unpredictability of a young cast of then-unknowns.

Still, who'd have imagined that the seniors Most Likely To Succeed included the girl with the beer funnel, the guy who repeated senior year, and the older dude still hitting on high school girls? The movie helped launch the careers of Renee Zellweger, Ben Affleck, and Matthew McConaughey, along with many others, some who flourished after their "Dazed" high school experience, and others who kept a lower profile. Here's what became of the class of 1976 – er, 1993.
