The Chumscrubber - 6

This is a sataristic look at life in American suburbia. It is about disconnection and the angst that living in this environment can do to families. The main characters are teenagers who are more in the know about what is going on in the world than their parents. The parents are so busy being superficial that they don't take the time to see the truth that is right in front of them. This shows up in both funny and sad ways. This is shown best by Glenn Close's character, Mrs. Johnson, who wants to connect to others but has never learned the skills needed to care for others. The film also plays on the current therapeutic culture that we live in. The tagline for the film says it all: "Meet Generation Rx." The title of the film comes from a video game where a guy with no head is the hero and decides to really live life, even if he is in a world of freaks. The feel of this film is a lot like other teen angst films like, The United States of Leland, Igby Goes Down, Donnie Darko, Mean Creek, Saved, and Thirteen.
