Two adolescent children of wealthy parents deal with the emotional travails of spoiled youth by indulging in self destructive behaviour including but not limited to drugs, parties and teen sex. Friends John (Luke Perry) and Alex (Timothy Owen) deal with issues of betrayal involving Alex'a girlfriend Stevie (Estee Chandler).
In order to break out of his teen heartthrob typecast, Perry accepted this role amidst, his hiatus during the first season he appeared in 90210. See more »

Compelling in its cliches
While ultimately a standard expose on the rich and decadent lifestyles of disaffected youth in an affluent environment that at times resembles a poor facsimile of Bret Easton Ellis' Less Than Zero, "Bliss" nevertheless comes through with some unique characters and solid acting. Perry is a far cry from Dylan McKay and once again shows his talents far outweigh the gloriously contrived 90210. Pic partially follows the downward spiral of his character who was given everything and still takes it for granted, especially his friendship with the Tim Owens character. Oddly a lot of the actors haven't done anything since this movie, which is surprising since some seemed to have legitimate talent. A good early 90s teen movie that left me satisfied but not entirely happy.
