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>

Great Movie
4 May 2009 | by josettedupres22See all my reviews

I just watched it and I love it, the cast was hot, the retro vibe of the whole film was done very well, the drone one song soundtrack i couldn't get enough of.....I am still trying to find a way to get a copy of the song no luck yet, but i can see how it is not a movie for everyone. It is definitely an acquired taste, but it is worth viewing yourself u might like it, i think the guy who plays hurley from lost was my favourite character he did a great job, the whole cast did a good job, I don't understand why people are saying they could not make sense of the film. It made perfect sense by the end to me...lol and i couldn't believe jason dill was in it too....oh well bottom line if you like strange dry humor kinda movies watch the good humor man.
