"How do you feel about the suicide of your best friend in the world?"

The Chumscrubber is armed with an A-list ensemble cast, but such a luxury is not enough to save this overwrought, uninspired satirisation of contemporary life in the American suburbs. Although a handful of performances work extremely well, this hybrid of American Beauty and Donnie Darko is hindered by the sense of... read more

I was surfing through the millions of channels on my dish network the last night and saw this title. It sounded pretty weird and I thought I would give it a try. The movie has a great ensemble cast and has very stong acting. There are multiple storylines that all revolve around the suicide of a teenage boy. The adults and teens are equally screwed up in there own ways and get into some pretty ... read more

Brick meets Donnie Darko meets Vernon God Little, nothing special. Just another example of a film and director trying too hard to be "indie".

“"How do you feel about the suicide of your best friend in the world?"

The Chumscrubber is armed with an A-list ensemble cast, but such a luxury is not enough to save this overwrought, uninspired satirisation of contemporary life in the American suburbs. Although a handful of performances work extremely well, this hybrid of American Beauty and Donnie Darko is hindered by the sense of amateurism which shrouds the production. Not to mention, the film's observations about suburban banality are no longer original. Unoriginality is a given in this day and age, but The Chumscrubber seems to be entirely reliant on its messages to see it through, with writers Arie Posin (who also directed) and Zac Stanford apparently calling it a day after throwing their derivative observations in the scr” read more

"Home - New A fun cast can't quite overcome a few missteps by a first time director. The film is diverting and entertaining and has some amazing moments, but it's also overdone and there's not enough control of all of the properties. With a firmer producer or editor this could have been great, as it is it feels torpedoed by it's own indulgences. "

"The angst file: Dean Stiffle: Troy wanted to play guitar in a rock band - be famous. He knew he wasn't any good, so he felt stupid for wishing that. He had a crush on a girl since he was thirteen, but he never talked to her, although I think he wished he had. He was so smart, but he kept his ideas to himself - unless you asked him. He liked you. I think he felt sorry for you. He was afraid he was going to end up like his dad. Troy was my friend. He was my best friend. (A special thanks to"

“I was surfing through the millions of channels on my dish network the last night and saw this title. It sounded pretty weird and I thought I would give it a try. The movie has a great ensemble cast and has very stong acting. There are multiple storylines that all revolve around the suicide of a teenage boy. The adults and teens are equally screwed up in there own ways and get into some pretty funny situations. This is a dark comedy will leave you either laughing or shaking your head wondering what the hell you just watched. Worth a bowl of popcorn and a couple hours of your time.
