Before Wes Anderson became a pale imitation of himself, he made a splashy sophomore comedy with punch.
Anderson's attention to meta/micro details gets filtered through an up-tempo youthful comic tone that flies in the face of adult romance.
Jason Schwartzman is Max Fischer, Anderson''s hilarious spoof on Dustin Hoffman's character in "The Graduate."
Bill Murray does an early version of the Bill Murray he would become, while indulging in laugh-inducing slap-stick bits.
Precocious but not precious, "Rushmore" is heavy-hearted comedy with a light touch.
Here is an over-achiever's paradise.
Rated R. 93 mins.
