I have just watched Wassap Rockers for the first time which I quite enjoyed and got me thinking, " There are loads of films I like that are all based in a day". Some examples:

Mallrats & Clerks ( not Clerks 2, I can't stress that enough )
Dazed and Confused
Breakfast Club
Ferris Bullers Day Off

I'm sure there are more, but just wandering what your favourites were.

Just saw Richard Linklater's SLACKER and it was set in one day, along his next movie, DAZED AND CONFUSED.

THE BREAKFAST CLUB counts. So does AMERICAN GRAFFITI. Also 12 ANGRY MEN.

One of the reasons that so many movies occur in a one-day time frame is that Aristotle said they should. No kidding; Greek tragedies almost always covered a one-day time span and for years it was considered an informal rule for dramas. Many storytellers consider it a challenge to fit a story into a single day.

First one I thought of was the 80s teen movie "Three O'Clock High," which takes place over the course of one school day.

What was that one by Spike Lee, about a pizza parlor, and they burn it down at the end?

Do the Right Thing was kind of a ridiculous blaxploitation movie in retrospect

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
