The Wackness Reviews
When we enjoy being on the same side, but its only for a short while. When others don't share the same side as others may think. When being side by side helps keeps us together and on different sides. And being on opposite sides keeps us the on the same side. When we wish to be on the side you want us to be on so we remain close. When some sides we show that the different side to us which people are not ready for. When some sides we wish to be recognized when its true. When we chose a side we are loyal to long ago that we contemplate. When the other side is good and pays the bill but so does the other side when its fun. When some sides we venture into are too much for us to handle, and other sides we fit in just well when we mix the two together to understand things better. When some sides we see brighten our day and enlighten us to what we never knew existed. When the things & people we are introduced to can bring out a side we never knew. When some sides we can no longer tolerate or keep close when we have to be truthful to ourselves and others. When some sides we will miss if we left them that we choose to stay. When the side of loyalty brings us closer together. When the side of disloyalty brings us farther apart when we are revealed a different side as well. When it's not easy revealing some sides that make us happy to others for failure they will accept them. When we are not loyal to the sides we are happy with and decide to change, we remain on a disloyal side, unless we are returning. When some sides we choose make us alive that make us stay loyal. When some sides we must let go, and others we remain loyal to when we enjoy the vary thing what made us stick to each other side in the first place. When there are places that carry plenty of ways to show various sides of ourselves that we can turn to. When the sides we choose are much healthier alternatives than others. When we try to find the bright side of things and leave on a good side. When being on both sides of the tracks is better then just being on one, when we have many sides we enjoy. When we wish all our sides could be accepted, but not suited. When some sides we are not suited for and have to return back.

This little independent film is not what I would consider a comedy. Come on guys; I didn't even get a chuckle out of this. In fact it was really depressing with a lot of unhappy people trying to cope with their lives. I would tend to call it more of a coming of age drama.
Luke Shapiro (Josh Peck) is graduating from high school. He deals pot, but instead of being the center of every party, he's a depressed loner. He's not sure what he wants to do with his life and he can't seem to get laid. His parents are always fighting and they're going to be evicted from their apartment. He's been seeing a psychologist, Dr. Jeffrey Squires (Sir Ben Kingsley) basically for the price of dope.
Dr. Squires is having problems of his own; with his wife (Framke Janssen), his step-daughter, Stephanie (Olivia Thirlby) and with all the medications he's taking. He gives Luke some great advice, but he could stand to follow it himself. Dr. Squires wants to go back to the 60s, but it's 1994. Luke falls in love with Stephanie, but she's just not as much into him. It's more out of boredom.
The Wackness's saving grace is the soundtrack. There's lots of cool early hip-hop and some sounds from the 60s and 70s, and Luke does try to get it together.
