The movie "Half baked" is one of the movies you gotto see when you like
movies as " Biodome, Bill and Ted's excellent adventure, Wayne's world, et
It's about a couple of guys that started smoking dope when they were kids. 15 years later they're still smoking and low on cash. to refill their money pouches, they decide to start there own weed transport and delivery company. And that is going to be the feeding ground of lots and lots of good jokes and situations.
What can add to the comments here? The cameos were great (especially
Dogg's) and Dave Chapelle is one of my favorite stand-up comedians who
actually bearable to watch as an actor. The descriptions of the different
kinds of smokers is classic! The ending is disappointing -- but you know
the every single comedy movie released in the last 20 years wasn't -- but
you what? You don't watch these kinds of movies for their dramatic
The stuff that happens a long the way is what's funny. One of the best
parts of the movie happens where Jim Breuer is explaining the real story
their pit bull Killer is dead. Hilarious! Rent it now!
I saw Half Baked when it first opened in the theatre... I'm a big Dave
Chappelle and Jon Stewart fan, plus I enjoy the old Cheech and Chong movies.
I wasn't just delighted or pleasantly surprised by this Gen X drug comedy -
I was enthralled!
Half Baked is one of the funniest movies I've seen in the last 10 years. The main cast is solid and very funny, but the cameos are the best part of the movie. Not many people know that Bob Saget's stand-up routine is so filthy that it would melt their children's ears off! He gets to bring some of that to the screen as a recovering drug addict. (won't ruin the joke - it has to be heard to be believed). A far cry from that god-awful Full House! Jon Stewart is even funnier as the "enhancement" smoker... a running joke with me and my friends to this day. I'd love to go see the Daily Show and ask Jon if he ever did the show... ON WEED! Snoop Dogg, Stephen Baldwin, Willie Nelson, Janeane Garofalo (my goddess!), Tommy Chong, and Steven Wright all make appearences and are equally hillarious!
Sure... a lot of the jokes are pretty juvenile and the movie's message "I love weed, but I love pussy MORE!" isn't exactly PC, but if you're ignorant enough to rent a movie like this thinking that it won't have jokes about weed, getting laid, gay jailhouse sex, more weed, overdosing a diabetic police horse, and weed, then you deserve to lose your $3.50 and should have rented something nice and pretentious.
If you like Animal House, Cheech and Chong, and/or Dazed and Confused, give this movie a chance. I can pretty much guarantee you'll want to watch it over and over again.
This is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. And it's not just because I love Jim Breur. I usually don't like these movies but in this case, I have to make an exception. This movie is hilarious. Especially when Thurgood is shouting, "I got some booty, I got some booty!"
Half Baked is hilarious. Three stoned friends become "fund-raisers" when they decide to sell weed to get a friend out of jail. Every part of the movie will make you roll on the floor laughing, pounding your bleeding fists onto the carpet. See it just for Bob Saget's and Willie Nelson's cameos.
Anyone who sees this film and thinks it's not funny has obviously had a personality bypass, either that or they just need to lighten up! This film was not supposed to have a plot really. The plot (that which there is) is just an excuse for some hilarious scenes which will have you rolling around on the floor with laughter. The guy on the sofa, the scene where the Cuban guy quits his fast food job, the eight doller date, the old hippie guy bangin' on about the old days, Sir Smoke-a-lot, it's all proper funny from start to finish. And as for the anti-cannabis evangalists saying this film is a bad influence? Get a grip on reality, like Thurgood says 'Yeah sure Cannabis is a gateway drug...........a gateway to more junk food mostly! Watch this with a few friends and I promise you'll be p***ing yourself with laughter. Up there in my top ten along with Withnail and I, Quadraphenia and Pulp Fulp Fiction.
When I first heard of this movie I thought it would just be another stupid movie, but then I saw and it is the funniest movie. I thought I was gonna have a heart attack it was so funny. If you don't see this you don't know what your missing A MUST SEE
This movie is very funny. I laughed so hard when I saw this the first time. And it's one of those movies that gets funnier each time you see it. If you are one of those uptight movie critic-type movie watchers, then you probably won't like this movie. But if you are of the general public who judges movies on entertainment value and not how good the plot is, then you'll love it. I would recommend this movie for ages 12 and up.
I read an anonymous posting that absolutely shredded this movie and couldn't believe it. I personally thought Half Baked was hilarious, as have most all my friends. I don't expect EVERYONE to like it, especially those looking for very cerebral/high humor, but most will. If you just want to enjoy a good laugh and simply be entertained, I definitely suggest this movie. I laughed pretty much non-stop from the beginning of the movie all the way to the end. And you don't need to know someone who's smoked pot or want to smoke it yourself for it to be funny, as some have asserted...it's simply a funny movie. I will say this though, if you've ever known anyone who HAS smoked pot, then the movie moves from hilarious into the realm of your stomach and jaw aching from laughing so much and so hard.
Half-Baked isn't an intense drama that's meant to sweep the awards, out to
win the hearts of young and old alike. It's just plain fun. The plot is on
the side. A common theme between jokes. In a movie like this, it's OKAY.
The jokes and the parodies are the heart of it, and the main reason I
derived great enjoyment from it. (And is one of the few movies I'll watch
again and again.)
Who can forget The Guy on the Couch, the kids getting high for the first time, Jerry Garcia in a pouch, "Sucks to be YOU man!", the diabetic horse, the Squirrel Master, Billy Bong Thorton, the flying Rottweiler (and the fantastic flashback sequence involving his life), among many other things I'm surely forgetting?
Not everyone is cut out to enjoy movies like this that make light of drugs (like the Cheech and Chong movies, for example), and those who aren't shouldn't write reviews of them. Just like if horror movies aren't your thing, you don't review Scream. Whether our anonymous Canadian friend who also commented on this movie, here, falls into this category or not, I don't know, but it sure seemed like it. I'd hate to see this movie slighted because someone just couldn't appreciate it.
