    The film generated a lot of buzz at Sundance this year and though I haven't seen the movie, the book is definitely fly. Set in the summer of 1994, New York City, 'The Wackness' centers around Luke Shapiro, a recent high school grad, who plans to continue his lucrative business of dealing pot in addition to getting laid. Shaprio believes he is depressed and trades therapy sessions with Dr. Squires, in exchange for weed and conversation. The doctor, who is struggling with a rehab-addicted wife and a slight mid-life crisis, welcomes the chance to regain his youth listening to beats and hitting the streets with his new friend. The summer heats up when Stephanie, Dr. Squires' stepdaughter, decides to get jiggy with Luke. It's a difficult task to write a novelization of a screenplay but Dale C. Phillips has done an excellent job. He successfully captured the time period and the relationship that these characters have with each other and New York City. If you're looking for a good quick summer read, head to the bookstore to pick up a copy of 'The Wackness'.

    I really dont know how I ended up missing this one in theaters. However, I couldn't be more excited about the DVD release tomorrow. Quirky and innocent... that's the word, at least.

    josh peck is amazing actor in this film. i completely forgot about his disney josh character and was eye balled to this film the whole time. the plot is fantastic. it's set in the mid 90's with hip hop music effortlessly being intertwined in the film. the 90's was definitely a time when hip hop was the best it has ever been and apparently ever will be. man, i miss the 90's!
