While it is indeed true that FDR was wheelchair-bound by polio, he had perfected his ability to walk with the support of someone else's arm and could stand upright for a long period of time. He never appeared in public in a wheelchair, and in fact it was not even known outside his circle of associates that he was wheelchair-bound until after his death. See more »

I feel a little naughty.
Baby I'll help you relax!
I'll tie you up with phone cord. We'll play with whips and nipple clips and candle wax!
Now hold on, Mary Sunshine. Let's not get carried away!
Just call me Mary Juana and Mary's got some scary little games to play! I'll lather you up...
And give you a shave...
I'll paddle you while straddling my little slave!

Reefer Madness should give us all new hope for the return of the movie-musical genre and the sweet days of Rocky Horror-style comedy! I love it when a musical is adapted from stage to screen, and the director takes full advantage of things that can be done in a movie that cannot be realized on stage. Reefer Madness takes full advantage of its film medium while still maintaining an unfailing sense of theatricality. The direction, choreography and vocal performances are fantastic.
This awesome movie is flawlessly cast and realized. It's a must-see for any fans of musicals, intelligent comedy and, well, weed.
