As you may already know, if you read my review, I absolutely fell in love with director Jonathan Levine’s mid-90s comedy The Wackness. Since seeing it make its world premiere on the first Saturday of the Sundance Film Festival in January, I have done everything possible to see it over and over again. This includes catching it on the closing night in Park City, where it was honored with the 2008 Sundance Audience is award. And it is a good thing to see Sony Pictures Classics, the film’s distributor, slinging that around in the first trailer above, as that is a big deal. Of all the die hard movie fans, real critics and wannabes that hit the streets of Park City every year for America’s most popular film fest, the majority of them enjoyed The Wackness the most. The same can be said for the bulk of critics, at least in my circle, that are raving about the experience to this day.
Needless to say, when The Wackness hits limited theaters on July 3rd, it should be very high on your to-do list. As for the trailer, it can be seen in High Definition over at MTV.
