Storyline

Arnold Berman is a klutz. Just ask his cousin Kenny, who has to put up with him over summer vacation from college. Arnold has to be seen to be believed: an uptight, unreal, super-straight Business major who's a whiz at accounting and a failure at everything else. Kenny and his pal Rollo turn Arnold on to a little grass to loosen him up, but they don't realize the demons they've set free: for the now-swinging Arnold becomes a pothead Horatio Alger and soon has them all in the midst of a multi-million-dollar grass-dealing firm complete with snazzy executive offices, a fleet of delivery trucks, group insurance, and a little league team. All of this does not escape the attention of either the local police or the local "organization," and the result is a free-enterprise free-for-all in which the customers are as high as the company stock.

One of the worst funniest movies of all time!
26 May 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You would have to be stoned to see it. I saw it in Atlanta as a result of a Film Festival in 1973 and I have never,ever forgotten it. And no, I wasn't stoned when I saw it because I was in grad school and couldn't smoke because the school had a solid rep for throwing out anyone with a "drug" violation. . BUT even in a cold sober state, it was one of the silliest dope smoking movies I have ever seen. I don't know how you could get a copy, but it definitely is worth the try! there are enough 70s references to make it almost a documentary of the weed culture of the time. If you are ever having a 70s party, this would be the film to find. I don't know where you could get it since it was released before VCRs or DVD's- but if you find it, post where to get it!
