Kicking and Screaming is a 1995 film by Noah Baumbach about a group of college graduates who refuse to move on with their lives, each in his own peculiar way. The film stars Josh Hamilton, Chris Eigeman, Carlos Jacott, and features Eric Stoltz, Olivia d'Abo and Parker Posey. Much of the film was shot at Occidental College.

Jason Blum, Baumbach's college roommate and who was producing a film for the first time, obtained financing after receiving a letter from family acquaintance Steve Martin endorsing the script. Blum attached the letter to copies of the script he sent around Hollywood.[2] The film premiered in 1995 at the New York Film Festival to critical acclaim. Baumbach was chosen as one of Newsweek‍ '​s "Ten New Faces of 1996". The film appeared in several "Top Ten" lists, and had a lengthy run playing on the Sundance Film Channel. The Criterion Collection DVD was released August 22, 2006 in the U.S.
