Storyline

Boys behaving badly. Jay, a middle-class high-school sophomore, hangs out in his L.A. suburb with slackers, dopers, petty thieves and punks. Everyone has a nickname; his is Worm. His best friend, John, aka Mt. Rushmore, severely beats another student at a wedding Jay and his pals crash. At the wedding, Jay falls for Wendy, one of the jock clique. Jay has his code: no ratting out your friends. So, when the beating victim dies, Jay doesn't help the cops. Meanwhile, his relationship with Wendy develops quickly into a first love. With knives, whiskey, and drugs close at hand, can Jay navigate assaults on his manhood, the strains of friendship, and the whispers of commitment? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Reminds me of Napoleon Dynamite
4 September 2006 | by (Hollywood) – See all my reviews

This movie reminded me a lot of "Napoleon Dynamite". Every time you watch it you find new details that are just gems. Keep an eye on the mom's feet while she is in the kitchen. She's standing on paper towel because, I assume, she just finished washing it. My mom totally did that. Very good acting all around and you can see how the director let the actors be free, especially visible in the scenes between Nathan and Cameron. I get so drained by the constant big budget studio pics that lack the heart of true indie's such as this movie and Dynamite. It's refreshing and gives hope that personal film making still exists. When you find a movie that you can continue to watch and discover new things each time, you know you have a great movie.
