Possibly the worst movie I've seen in my life.
13 December 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The summary on the back of the DVD had this to say about the movie: "Comedians look at the success and failures of America's relentless and often futile war against drug use." If by "Comedians" they mean people who attempt to be funny, then this is an accurate description of the movie. However, the key word in the above sentence is "attempt". If some ten year children with access to film equipment "attempted" to make a funny movie about America's useless war on drugs, I imagine it would turn out something like this movie. In the entire movie there was about five minutes of useful information and not one humorous sketch at all. I hope the 'comedians' have day jobs.

Whatever you do, don't rent this movie. If it ever makes it to t.v., which I doubt it will (except maybe on MST3000), you'll change the channel after about 2 minutes. Trust me on this one.
