A teen angst thriller at a high school gripped by an apparent curse that claims the life of a senior every year. Story follows a senior, Chrissie, who is skeptical, and another, Tracy, who believes that she may be the next victim.
Jason Trost never fails to deliver on tongue-in-cheek satires. Wet and Reckless has an absurdity level on par with The FP, spoofing reality television with a no-holds-barred attitude. Also much like The FP, the comedy is deadpan, raucous, coarse, graphic, and shocking (these are all compliments, mind you). However, the real difference between Trost's breakthrough film and Wet and Reckless is that there are a few true moments of vulnerability displayed by the characters; moments where the comedy almost fades away and you see some legitimate emotion from the actors that explain really why each character is such a mess. These moments are brief, but help to put this movie in a very exceptional category where the over-the-top concept almost seems like it could be plausible. Do not be fooled by these remarks though, because this movie is anything but serious. Trost and his crew waged unconventional film warfare from start to finish with a minimal set, an even smaller workforce, and by going as far as utilizing real and unsuspecting tourists in Thailand to execute some of the funnier moments in the movie. With a bigger budget, Trost could have easily landed this film in theaters nationwide with significant success. If you're a fan of his previous films, or if you just love movies that display crass social commentary, then this movie comes with the highest of recommendations.
