"Reefer Madness" through the looking-glass
11 July 2003 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

This would-be documentary mixes stock footage, lame street interviews, 1975 fashion and bad acting to defend (and teach) marijuana use in terms that seem pretty commonplace today.

Its major claim (the "secret" of the title) is that marijuana enhances sex, though it includes a few dissenting voices.

The sex scenes are all very tame by today's standards, and the tone is pure Playboy. DON'T see it for the sake of John Holmes' famous member, which appears only briefly, flaccid in the background at a nude "sensitivity training" session remarkable for its insensitivity ("First, all please disrobe.").

As a classic case of blow-dried hair, flares and words like "balling", it's mildly amusing, and the cast deliver a few unconscious one-liners.

The film lasts just over one hour. If you pay full price, you'll be ripped off, but it would go well with "Reefer Madness".
