Underrated authentic hip-hop movie

The Wackness takes place in the most hip-hop relevant environment for its time. I liked how they managed not only to create an amazing soundtrack consisting of some true hip-hop classics, but also to show how hip-hop is more than just the music. Also, the fact that they got Method man on board made the movie even more hip-hop authentic. All in all, a great cast, good acting, neat period of time, thought-provoking philosophic quotes from Dr. Squires and most important of all a great soundtrack. I really don't get how this movie hasn't got better reviews.

Entertaining and Witty!

Really great, engrossingly entertaining film! I've seen so many movies that didn't hold my interest lately I was beginning to think something was wrong with ME! But "The Wackness" reassured me that it's not me; it's everyone around me that is crazy (to paraphrase one character's sentiment)... Ben Kingsley is superb and shows why he's so respected as an actor - it's sort of mind-blowing to see him in a role like in this flick when one has seen him as himself or as Ghandi, but he totally owns the character. Really great film!

One of the best movies I've seen by now

I can only say that this is a must-watch movie. I'm not the guy who likes romantic movies, but mixture of drama, comedy and romance here is just brilliant, it makes you feel those crush feelings from when you were a teenager again. Characters are so simple, yet very interesting, Josh Peck/Ben Kingsley/Olivia Thirlby trio really did magnificent job. I liked the soundtrack. Advice: It's an easy dinner, make yourself a good and quiet atmosphere when you are watching it.
