Unknown actors playing spoiled teens behaving badly and making immature decisions and oh so upset when things don't go well for them. Who could ever get enough of seeing that?

Shallow plot, nothing about this movie is engaging.

Affluenza is teen take on The Great Gatsby. But we spend our time in the world of a teenage Tom Buchanan, not Jay Gatsby, and the teen playing Nick Carraway wants in rather than grows disgusted. Everyone looks and dresses like they belong in a Ralph Lauren ad. They all have too much free time and a bottomless baggie. Pot is substituted for booze and the kids smoke it non-stop--impossible now given the strength of the stuff now out there. Where Gatsby occurs before the Great Depression, this movie occurs on the cusp of our latest financial meltdown. If the pain of that event could have been confined to just these people, we would celebrate it.

Movies like Affluenza are used to justify other filmmakers getting lots of money to make movies where teenagers are killed in inventive ways.

If teens as a group avoid death then moments will occur that prompt the following to be whispered,"No, Is he going get killed that way...Wait for it...Oh, Wow...What? That wasn't it...Dude I never saw that...Death by concrete bong..I told him to go with neon...They took a whack at auto asphyxia and the chandelier of deer horns just pinned them there...I think she might be in that bail there and maybe those two over there...Well somebody has to get her out of that septic tank...

Or movies where a bunch of teens are dancing up and down to house music and they are waving glowy sticks and wearing them like necklaces ...

Or teenagers are in an abandoned steel mill and slurping beer out of red plastic cups and wearing lettermen's jackets and shoving each other around...

And these teens will be killed by a really complicated machine that is boxing them in made of a red-hot chain link fence with acid coated razor wire on it twelve feet up so they can't climb out.

Just because they are too rich doesn't mean you can't feel compassion for them.
These are people you see in the news and in celebrity mags and they are as real as the screen you virtually watch them on.
Handsome young men, mean parents, lots of cliches. Glad I only spent 99 cents plus tax on this one. Do think the production
values were quite good though.

Disturbing and didn't qualify as entertainment.

The story reflects the modern day Wall Street crash, it's impact on families and the pressures on teenagers to keep up with the Jones'es.
