Wassup RockersHD Closed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview, buy, and download this movie.
Ten years after Kids, Larry Clark tackles the controversial subject of teens and race in LA, aiming his lens on an unlikely crew of Latino skate punk kids from the ghetto neighborhood of South Central who just want to be themselves. When Jonathan, Kico, Eddie, Spermball, Porky, Louie and Carlos take an impromptu skating trip to Beverly Hills one day, they get into trouble with the cops, enjoy sexual encounters with rich white girls, and face off against hostile boyfriends and suspicious neighbors. It takes all of their strength and cunning to make their way back home to the (relative) safety of South Central. Overflowing with tenderness and sly humor, Wassup Rockers is another bold vision of youth under fire from the incomparable Larry Clark.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: More than a decade after Larry Clark scandalized the movie world with Kids, he is still pushing buttons with his lubricious insider's view of teenage life.
Rotten: The sexy, scruffy, neo-Warriors pageantry of ghetto teen hunger would have been a lot more vital if Clark didn't have such a class-war chip on his shoulder.
Rotten: We learn little about who they are beyond who Clark needs them to be: Latino punks from the ghetto who like to skate.
Rotten: This portrait of young South Central Latino boys cutting a skateboarding swath through the ritzy environs of Beverly Hills is ultimately more laughable than illuminating, at times approaching a level of camp commensurate with John Waters.
Sex, Alchohol, Punkrock and Skateboarding = Wassup Rockers
This movie is sick whether you skate, are a punk or if you just enjoy the culture, it gives you insight too the lives of actual teenagers and isn't all fake, the kids actually skate, and they do what most teens do get drunk, have sex, and have fun, its a harsh reality but the honest truth. Its not like other teen movies though it has a great plot and an ending like no other that will leave you thinking long after the movie is over. Anyway thank you I-Tunes for putting up this movie and at a great price and thankyou Larry Clark.
