i've been dying to see this movie since july 08 & now its on dvd and blueray..already! if you love me, you would get this for me..[hehe]

its the summer of 1994, and the streets of new york are pulsing with hip hop and wafting with the sweet aroma of marijuana. the newly-inaugurated mayor, rudolph giuliani, is only beginning to implement his anti-fun initiatives against crimes like noisy portable radio, graffiti and public drunkenness.the wackness centers upon a troubled high school student named Luke Shapiro a teenage pot dealer who forms a friendship with Dr. Jeffrey Squires, a psychiatrist and kindred lost soul. When the doctor proposes Luke trade him weed for therapy sessions, the two begin to explore both New York City and their own depression.

Propelled by an exuberant hip hop score, The Wackness captures the spell of 1994--a time of pagers, not cell phones; a time when Tupac and Biggie were alive but Kurt Cobain had just died. Funny and moving, The Wackness is an offbeat tale of two lost souls stumbling towards maturity.

even the soundtrack is crazy! biz markie, a tribe called quest, nas, raekwon, craig mack, biggie, faith evans, and the wu tang clan is just to name a few featured on the album. I HAVE TO SEE THIS MOVIE!

remember: if you love me, you would get this for me
