The boost is a DRAMA, but I consider it to be one of the funniest movies ever. Unfortunately it wasn't intended as a comedy. James Wood acts like an ass throughout the movie, giving new meaning to the term overacting. Overacting may not be the best way of describing his performance, but its just so bizarre. The Boost is kind of like an eighties version of reefer madnes, except for cocaine. Just a funny and weird movie.
