Dean Jamie Bell is a disaffected teenager living in a California suburb that's beautiful on the surface but populated by families who live emotionally vacant lives, with the parents often too wrapped up in their own problems to pay attention to their children.

Overview

The death of a troubled teen throws a suburban neighborhood into chaos in this darkly satirical comedy. Dean Jamie Bell is a disaffected teenager living in a California suburb that's beautiful on the surface but populated by families who live emotionally vacant lives, with the parents often too wrapped up in their own problems to pay attention to their children. One day, Dean discovers his best and only friend, Troy Josh Janowicz, has killed himself. While Troy's mother Glenn Close hasn't figured out her son is dead just yet, Dean opts not to tell her, and besides, his own parents William Fichtner and Allison Janney don't appear very concerned. Dean, however, does have reason to worry -- Billy Justin Chatwin, Lee Lou Taylor Pucci, and Crystal Camilla Belle are three bullies who used to buy drugs from Troy, and they want Dean find Troy's remaining stash and give it to them. When Dean refuses to cooperate, the bullies decide to get tough and kidnap Dean's little brother; however, they end up taking the wrong child and Dean grudging finds himself trying to rescue a child he doesn't know. Meanwhile, as the adults in the neighborhood begin to emotionally implode, "the Chumscrubber" becomes a common presence in town -- a comic book and video game character represented by a decapitated post-apocalyptic teenager who has become an unavoidable pop-culture icon. The Chumscrubber also features Ralph Fiennes, Carrie-Anne Moss, John Heard, and Rita Wilson.

    "It's for school." Shallow adults don't notice the truly terrible things their kids do. Strangely lovely, redeeming finale, despite the VERY unsympathetic characters and story. Michael (Ralph Fiennes) and the dolphin are awesome.

    a top 10

    This movie hits every feeling. It shows things that actually happen but never gets talked about in real life. it's completely offbeat and entertaining. I enjoyed every minute of it. and the dolphin bit is so random I just love it.

    God Awful

    It is hard to write how truly pathetic this movie is, and the lack of any real value of this movie is appalling. At the end I felt that every actor (many who I really like), the director, and producers all owe me a personal apology for creating this and subjecting the world and I to the movie. The plot is ridiculous, you will hate every last one of the characters, and you'll wish you had that part of your life back after watching this movie.

    Donnie Darko Meets Brick

    After looking at the sad reviews online, I decided to check it out. This movie was suprisingly one of the best movies I've ever seen. If you like Donnie Darko or Brick this is the best of both worlds.
