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.
