Entertainment Reviews:

New York Times - 07/03/2008
"Funny and poignant, THE WACKNESS is one of the better coming-of-age films to hit theaters in a while....Real life plays intriguingly in the background of this edgy comedy..."
Entertainment Weekly - 07/11/2008
"[A] studiously offbeat coming-of-age crowd-pleaser....The film is dotted with timely signifiers, but its one truly relevant reference point is that this was the last moment in the culture before cell phones."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2008
"Ben Kingsley remakes himself almost as comprehensively as he did in SEXY BEAST..."
Empire - 09/01/2008
3 stars out of 5 -- "THE WACKNESS is an easy watch, with hazy cinematography evoking the feel of summer and a mellow soundtrack that lovers of '90s hip-hop will go ape over."
Total Film - 04/01/2009
3 stars out of 5 -- "Ben Kingsley's stoned shrink is royally funny and Josh Peck channels Mark Ruffalo's sleepy appeal....The leads peddle their wares with nicely messy conviction."
