NYC. Summer 1994. The girls were fly. The music was dope. And Luke was just trying to deal. Even though 18-year-old Luke Shapiro (Josh Peck) is stashing away loads of cash dealing pot, he's still a virgin, his family may be evicted, and his only friend is his eccentric shrink and client, Dr. Jeffrey Squires (OscarĀ® winner Ben Kingsley, SEXY BEAST, HOUSE OF SAND AND FOG), who is intent on living life to the fullest. But when Squires' party girl stepdaughter Stephanie (JUNO's Olivia Thirlby) opens her heart, Luke learns that love, no matter how long it lasts, can turn a life that is wack, totally dope. With surprising performances from Famke Janssen, Mary-Kate Olsen and Method Man, and a pulsing hip-hop score, this exuberant coming-of-age comedy captures a season of discovery with wit and warmth.

Rated R for pervasive drug use, language and some sexuality.

Box office gross: $2.0 million. View box office history.
