The Chumscrubber is a dark comedy about the lives of people who live in upper-class suburbia. It all begins when Dean Stiffle (Jamie Bell) finds the body of his friend, Troy. He doesn't bother telling any of the adults because he knows they won't care. Everyone in town is too self consumed to worry about anything else than themselves. And everybody is on some form of drug just to get themselves through the day. After Troy's death, local drug dealers (Camilla Belle, Justin Chatwin, Lou Taylor Pucci) at the school run out of their stash. They convince Dean to get Troy's stash or they are going to kill his brother that they kidnapped, but they grabbed the wrong kid.

A film with many layers and well built up characters, this movie has many depths and is well worth the watch.

Certainly a little different. An oddball movie but it kept me interested and entertained.

How do you fit in and where is the underlying thoughts. Interesting teen behaviour that develops through this story.

My teenagers watched this one. Weren't really that impressed but it wasn't what they thought it was going to be. Bit of a dull story line and very slow story. Cheesy.
