But when his friend Dean pays him a visit, Dean discovers Troy has hanged himself in his bedroom during one of his mother’s pool parties. After the death, three local teens: Billy, Lee, and Crystal, want what’s left of Troy’s stash of pills and they know that Dean is the only one who knows where they are. But when Dean refuses to get the pills, the three teens kidnap Dean’s little brother, until they realize they’ve kidnapped the wrong kid.
Plot: The Chumscrubber is a dark comedy about the lives of people who live in upper-class suburbia. It all begins when Dean Stiffle 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 through their days.

What’s the Alternative?
Having grown up in a 1960’s suburb outside of Philadelphia with it’s same-same split-levels and colonials, I can grasp the loneliness angle of a teen-angst film. Not as successful or lighthearted as Thumbsucker or honered as the silly and “way” overrated American Beauty, The Chumscrubber has charm. Teens are lonely. They do tend to rebel like James Dean. Their parents work hard and acquire materialistic items such as homes, patio pools, and furniture, a stage of their life that emphasizes materialism and social status. Suburbanites play hard and work hard, but teenager offspring are neither adults nor children. The Chumscrubber world wheels in turn, humor and darkness.
Jamie Bell somehow subdues his Scottish accent and plays the American teen with solemn seriousness. Maybe that’s a fault in his portrayal, but after all, there is not much fun in popping pills and having a best friend hang himself. The parents, the kids, they seem to be whirling in separate orbits, coming close as the moon is large in a winter sky, but then the luminous returns to a distant trajectory. They talk to each other, or rather past each other. The humorous scenes where the teens tell parents they are kidnapping a little boy so they can buy drugs compel laughs because the parents think the kids are attempting precocious satire. The mother planning a wedding is oblivious. She is the prototype suburban striver. Where’s your kid? Oh, he’s in his room, er.. out with friends on a school project. “It’s for school” is teen code for “perfectly innocent.” That’s a laugh.
In the end, the world of white, middle to upper-class citizen is almost too easy to satire, but what’s the alternative, a Stalinist State? Think about it.
Austin Movie Show review
Suburbia pops up on the screen, one house at a time, and it’s the most beautiful and peaceful neighborhood you’ve ever seen until five minutes later when Dean (Jamie Bell) walks into a room and finds his best friend’s dead body hanging by a rope. Chumscrubber writer/director Arie Posin’s illustration of suburbia and alienation is as heart breaking as it is hilarious. Kids bury emotion under Prozac, Zantacs, Ritalin, and any other “happiness pills” they can find, while their parents drown their sorrows in one glass of wine after another. In this surreal depiction of life in the ‘burbs, every individual is completely self-absorbed and numb to the outside world. A child is kidnapped and his parents never even realize it! So why did I laugh so much? Because every moment of Chumscrubber is either painfully shocking or absurdly hilarious. Posin has created a world where people are completely consumed with drugs, appearances, and “top-tier schools,” and the brilliance of it is that he actually makes you want to go back and visit again. And the soundtrack (Placebo, Snow Patrol, The Like) kicks ass!!!
