Brok's Review of The Wackness
A coming of age comedy sure to please any fan of the genre. Of course the plot is all too familiar, but the film's script and pacing, helps it stand out. Set in '94, this film does a great job of bringing you back--with the choice of music and Luke's Nintendo system--to name a couple--if you pay attention to your movies, you'll notice at one point in the film a taxi passing by with an advertisement for the film Forrest Gump (which was released in '94.) The coming of age genre is one of my favorites besides horror and smart comedy, and this film definitely exceeded my expectations and stands next to some of the very best for me--such as Almost Famous, Adventureland, Juno and Outside Providence--of course, IMHO. Give it a try.
