Storyline

A rebellious 17 year old is increasingly getting into trouble, doing drugs, and hiding events from his parents. As things spiral further out of control, his parents turn to an organization called "Toughlove" for help. There they learn that it sometimes is necessary to turn your back on your child and allow him to accept the consequences of his actions. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Best movie ever
22 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is quite possibly the funniest thing ever to an adolescent boy. My middle school heath teacher had a copy of this and we'd make our substitute teachers play it every time. The scene were Gary(the main, drug-addicted, character) gets caught with what looks like an oz. of shwag weed is HYSTERICAL. Best movie ever. Gary's descent into drug addicting is completely unreasonable. He goes from smoking around a joint per day and living with his parents, to sleeping on dirty towels in a run-down apartment with a huge coke habit, in what seems like days.

"I have one question. Why are you way over there?" -Gary (Jason Patrick)
