This movie was crap!!!
14 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

One, the sketches were horribly written. The acting was terrible. And even though it was an ass load of film in the name of drugs, they really don't do much about truly educating the viewer. A lot of facts, with no real connections. In a time when the public needs to be aware of the positive side of recreational drugs, this movie only hinders the forward progress of many activists involved with bringing the farce that is The War on Drugs. I understand that they're supposed to be parodies, but its hard to get past terrible acting. Also, there were some extremely young kids in this film. They talk about letting kids make their own decisions, but isn't making a child that doesn't even look over the age of ten star in a film about drugs forcing it down their throats?

If you want a GOOD film about The War on Drugs and how it's slowly destroying our country, do yourself a favor and check out "American Drug Wars - The Last White Hope." The research is a LOT more solid, with interviews with ex CIA operatives, a pro-decriminalization JUDGE from California, Thomas Chong (when he was locked up), along with a string of other interviews with people that ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE TALKING ABOUT.

F*ck this film, what a waste of my time, and the time of people who have fought hard for what these guys just flushed down the toilet. Congrats.
