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>

Wow!! From the opening till the end i was into this movie, Tenney does an amazing job, I love when there is about to be a rumble they have the classic stare down and everyone gets up in slow mo, very cool stuff, throughout all the drama u find yourself laughing as well, Great Story!! And since this film is based in the 70's it has an amazing classic rock soundtrack!! Some of my favorite's... I love all the character's names in the film.. very original..It always fun to watch a film that has a lot of talented up and coming actor's.
