Synopsis:
Set in the sweltering Summer of New York, 1994, a time when the city was pulsating with hip-hop, The Wackness follows Luke (Josh Peck, MEAN CREEK) a loner kid living out his last summer before university - selling weed, finding an unlikely best friend and falling in love for the first time. Luke forms a surprising bond with dysfunctional therapist Dr. Squires (Sir Ben Kingsley, SEXY BEAST), trading drugs for counselling as the two embark on a life-changing journey together. Luke learns the hardest lesson of them all as he falls hard for the Doctor s attractive young stepdaughter, Stephanie (Olivia Thirlby, JUNO).
The Wackness is a touching, laugh-out-loud romance with a killer hip-hop soundtrack.

Boring and unfunny. - Wackness review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
27/03/2010

I was hugely disappointed with 'The Wackness', what promises to be a touching indie romatic comedy is in fact a dull teenage angst ridden borefest about drug dealing and drug using losers with unsympathetic characters and a predictable storyline. The acting is equally dull with Ben Kingsley earning a "Worst Supporting Actor" nomination at the 2008 Golden Raspberry Awards. One to avoid.
