I love this movie!
12 February 2012 | by (Syracuse, NY) – See all my reviews

It seems like most of the other reviews are hit or miss. That's okay -- I LOVE it! In fact, everyone I show it to also loves it. Contrary to popular belief, you don't even need to be under the influence of anything to enjoy a classic like 'Bong Water' although I'm sure it doesn't hurt. The music, writing and production quality are good but the cast is the real show- stopper for me. It's a hilarious opportunity to see some of my favorite stars in a role you might not normally expect. You've got Luke Wilson, Jack Black, Andy Dick, Brittany Murphy, Jamie Kennedy, Scoot Caan and Kyle Gass together on one screen, in a movie about pot. I highly recommend giving this movie a chance!
