Nash agrees and the 2 of them take their class including Nathan’s crush Dani who is a traumatized half chumash and half british female neglected by her parents for being a failure who is hungry for attention and is known for being a party animal and trainwreck. Unbeknownst to them the family ranch isn’t abandoned and is the home of 2 drug addicted lunatics: Benny a lonely, delusional and awkward social incept who is addicted to a hallucination drug used in the rites of passage ceremony who wants to be part of an imaginary indian tribe in a far away place but to do so he must join them in death with a bride and Delgado a crazed drug dealer with a shotgun who hallucinates a talking stuffed monkey on his shotgun and is out for revenge against Dani for killing his wife and sun during a drunk driving incident that has traumatized her. Benny while hallucinating attempts to kidnap one of Nathan’s class mates in order to make her his bride but is stopped by a man who was with her and is driven of. Benny goes to a party where he is bullied and laughed at by the college students until Nathan arrives and beggs him to stay. Penelope a girl at the party attempts to seduce and pursuade Benny into giving her a ride home but she is instead kidnapped and taken by Benny to his family porch to be his wife. The next morning Benny attempts to perform a marriage ceremony with Penelope but stops upon hearing the students arrive at the ranch and Penelope manages to break out of her restraints in order to try and escape.

Nathan while attempting to calm his classmates down and stop them from having sex is hit on by an invited girl only for her to be called of by her friend who tells her that Nathan likes the new girl Dani.

Before dying Benny hallucinates Dani telling him she loves him and that they will be together forever and ever and ever but he is later rejected by the tribe for not having Dani with him.

Too silly to be offended by
First – it takes WAY too long for this movie to get going.
Second – I believe in respecting all cultures, but this movie was so ridiculous (talking sock puppet), that I don’t know how any Native American could be offended by any representations in the film.
Now, college professors and students look pretty stupid.
There ARE some pretty amusing moments.
Most from Christian Slater.
Although I felt all the actors did a great job, the material?
I wouldn’t waste my time.
The “4” is because I actually made it through.
The only original ideas left in Hollywood all belong to this movie
RITES OF PASSAGE is bar none the most original piece of filmmaking I have seen in decades. Admittedly I picked this little gem up on DVD for around ten bucks despite having never heard of it. At the very least I thought it looked like an easy B movie (and I love B movies). However, this is no B movie…it’s an A+ film, and I don’t hesitate to tell you that there is nothing else out there in video land quite like it. It is refreshingly offbeat, delightfully demented, and all in all a harmless roller-coaster of fun. Bottom-line, RITES OF PASSAGE is a film that will ultimately be persecuted for being too good by stupid people who can’t handle a nice cinematic kick in the pants. It’s a fresh perspective in a rotting industry and that’s what makes me proud to be a film-geek. I just hope its reach extends far beyond me. It might take a while, but give it time…we’re dealing with a eventual classic in its infancy.
P.s. It’s hard to sit down and enjoy a movie with a stick up your butt…just saying.
