If you were born between 1973 and 1979, keep reading

Thank you for continuing to read. Obviously you are between the ages of 29 and 35. Or you wish you were.

Now that I have your attention, I'd like to encourage you to check out The Wackness. It is playing at the Cedar-Lee right now and it is wonderful.

This is especially true if you listened to smart hip-hop in the mid-90s (such as KRS-One or A Tribe Called Quest), identify with the visage of Kurt Cobain, or remember fondly the rise of the Biggie and Puffy.

This is further true if you, in the words of the current president, acted "young and stupid when you were young and stupid." 'Nuff said.

If these things apply, or you just want to see Ben Kingsley off his rocker (or, to a lesser extent, one of the Olsen twins as a society girl slumming as a deadhead) in a warm cross-generational urban buddy movie/bittersweet romantic comedy/coming of age flick.
