After the musical number "Romeo and Juliet," when the Lecturer is holding the Bible and moves it out of the shot, you can hear the sound of the book landing on the grass, like it was tossed down. In the next shot, the Lecturer is again holding the Bible under his arm. See more »

Quotes

Jimmy: Ah, Jesus. I got a great high cooking here, don't bring me down.
Jesus: On the contrary, Jimmy. I'm here to bring you UP - with dope. No, not your brand of dope, but the straight dope! You think hanging with those reefer fiends are cool? I don't think you realize how cool God can be.

Genius
16 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Tonight on show time I watched the pure genius that is Reefer Madness! As musical theatre lover I appreciated the movie right at the beginning when the school play was "Green Grows The Lilacs" which is the play that the musical "Oklahoma" was based on. Not only though was this movie hysterical the whole way through, but the music was incredible and the lyrics and book were outstanding, but on top of it all IT WAS SMART! To take an old movie like Reefer Madness and turn it into a musical and a political satire was pure brilliant! All the performances were outstanding as well, but to me Ana Gyster stole the show! She is just incredible, her voice, her comedic timing, and every little nuance she adds to make that character hers! Christian Campell was also amazing! In fact there was no performance or part of this movie that was wrong...if you're smart and have a good sense of humor you'll LOVE IT! And if I could rate this movie higher than a 10 I would! P.S Rob Torti rocks my world!
