Wassup Rockers was made in 2005 by Larry Clark. Wassup Rockers is a film about a group of Guatemalan and Salvadoran teenage misfits in south L.A. The teenagers have adopted a punk rock mode of living, riding skateboards, listening to punk music, wearing tight pants, etc. Being that they're in an area that is heavily influenced by hip-hop culture, they need to constantly be wary of conflict.

Jonathan, Kiko, Eddie, Porky, and Spermball (the boys) have their own punk rock band, Jonathan being the lead singer. Their music is heavily influenced by the punk rock of their generation, such as the Ramones.

The boys are energetic, and in the prime of their teenage angst. Wanting to get away from their bad neighborhood, they take a bus to Hollywood, and Beverly Hills. This part of the movie shows the clashing of cultures, the subversion of the abnormal causes problems for the boys, as well as attracting the attention of rich white girls.

The girls they ran into invite them into their house where they talk to the boys as if they're from a different planet, questioning their existence, wondering how they live, how they can be happy with the conditions of their hometown. The boys are just as interested in the girls asking similar questions, in an attempt to learn about the rich life.

Soon after this attracts the attention of nervous parents and jealous boyfriends, as the girls boyfriends show up a fight breaks out. The kids run out of the house as fast as possible and continue to wander around, looking for different things to do, and seeing the life they've never had the chance to live themselves.

Before too long the boys are on the run from cops, and fellow skaters. They find themselves in major trouble and looking for a way to get back home before long.
