"Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking your Juice in the Hood" is a parody of a lot of black U.S. movies, for instance "Boyz n the Hood", "South Central", "Menace II Society", "... See full summary »
Two New Yorkers are accused of murder in rural Alabama while on their way back to college, and one of their cousins--an inexperienced, loudmouth lawyer not accustomed to Southern rules and manners--comes in to defend them.
After Kenny accidentaly kills a cop's diabetic horse by feeding it the food he purchased from a munchie run, he is put in jail and is given a 1 million dollar bail. The rest of the group must bail Kenny out before Nasty Nate gets to him. The group decides to sell marijuana that Thurgood gets through his job as a janitor at a pharmaceutical lab. They become pals with rap star Sir Smoke-A-Lot and the rivals of dealer Samson Simpson. On the side, Thurgood seeks the love of Mary Jane, an anti-pot daughter of a dealer. What follows is typical pothead behaviour with a ton of cameos. Look carefully. Written by

The period between the script being bought to the release of the film was only seven months, an incredibly fast time frame for a major studio film. See more »
In the theater version, a boom operator, complete with mike, could be plainly seen crouching in the corner after Mary Jane slams her apartment door in Thurgood's face, and he tries to talk to her through the door. The crewman is directly behind Mary Jane's door, inside her apartment. Later, in the home-video version, this mistake was corrected, but the top of the crewman's head is still visible at the bottom of the screen. See more »

You don't have to be under 25 nor a pothead to enjoy this movie. Maybe having familiarity with drug culture would help though.
I had never heard of this movie 'Half Baked' until I was channel surfing cable this afternoon and came across it. While I had heard the name Dave Chapelle because of the television show recently airing, I was not familiar with two of the other three main characters. The guy playing the character in jail I have seen before. In other words, I am not up on who these people are/were. I am of the Chech and Chong 'Up in Smoke' generation of drug themed flicks. Saw them all back in the day. However, I found this movie much funnier than those ever were. Much funnier. The Scarface character was hilarious, but I found the Brian and Thurgood parts funnier and quite believable in an over-abundant way. I have read here many stating the cameo parts were the film's highlight. Not in my opinion. The main characters owned this one. As an aside from a 40 something, it is nice to see that this country(USA)has come along the road far enough whereby having a couple white guys, a black dude and a Cuban sharing a habitat together doesn't come across as contrived. The stoner parts all looked familiar to me. Funny movie.
