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
I loved this movie. It is one of those small movies that is a great find. I have watched it several times and I figure out something new each time. I hope the director continues to make more movies because this one is very entertaining. I really liked the friendship between the character's "Jay" and "John". I think you could really see why they were the two guys in the group to be close. Then there was the good relationship "Jay" had with "Wendy" and his relationship with his parents. This was a great movie to discuss with friends. The movie also had some great lines. When Jay told his mom he would try to be a better "guest". I cracked up.
