Storyline

Texan small town high school buddies Chris, Owen Turner and Samantha 'Sam' Campbell were inconspicuous, bored and feeling blasé about anti-drug campaigns, so they 'experiment'. After OD'ed Sam's dad gets her to detox, she grows closer to gentle Chris, who follows suit, and the pair takes distances from her cocky ex Owen, who gets drawn into the drug scene. Even their friend Brad's OD-death can't get Owen back on track. A knee-injury as track athlete tempts Chris to try Owen's heroin, and fatally switch sides, stupidly followed by Sam. And dealer Kurt's gang shows penniless 'client' kids no mercy. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

Owen: I've been telling everybody who will listen to me that I'm through with all that, but I like it. I like the way it makes me feel. I wish I was feeling that way right now, it'd make this fucking boring conversation a lot more interesting. And I, uh, got some unfortunate news for you, Chris. Sammy likes it, too. And if you think you're jock love is gonna be enough for her, you're wrong. She'll come back for me. Not because I'm any big thing, but because I know how to keep her!

Not so wasted...
18 March 2002 | by (Charleston, SC) – See all my reviews

I wasn't planning on watching wasted when I saw the MTV preview but since I had nothing better to do or watch on a Sunday night I watched it.

Wasted was no Requiem for a Dream but it was a very good movie considering it was made by MTV. One thing that drew me to watching it was Summer Pheonix the sister of the late and wonderful River Pheonix stared. I suppose talent runs in the Pheonix family because she was good and so is Jaquien though niether are River. Nick Stahl also gives a great preformance as a junky jock. There isn't much else to say about wasted. It was a dark depressing and insightful look into the lives of three small town junkies. I recomend it to those who like the subject. 8/10
