A Far Out Comedy
16 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was looking on netflix and ran into this movie "Far Out Man." This movie stars Tommy Chong who plays a hippie searching for his family. He meets up with son and together they go off to see America. In Far Out Man Tommy Chong plays a character that's totally oblivious to what is happening or what is going on. Basically this ends up being a lot like a Cheech and Chong movie. This movie has many of the crazy antics found in the Cheech and Chong movies.

There is some stuff that is really weird and some stuff you might not find funny. They had a rock band in this movie named "Fartz." I guess some people would think that is funny. Martin Mull plays a Dr with the name Liddledick that sounds a lot like "Little Dick."

I don't know why this movie has a rating of 4.4. There's parts of this movie that are really funny. I wasn't expecting this to be a good movie. This movie is a lot like "The Adventures of Ford Fairlane." This is one big adventure. There is some crude humor in this movie including some sex related stuff. There is some stuff that doesn't make sense. There isn't much of a plot in this movie. It's pretty straightforward.
