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 »
Best Musical..uh, Comedy...um,Satire...ALL.! - I've Seen in Years!
I'm SO used to being disappointed by underwritten roles, songs, plot & dialogue, phoned-in performances, etc., in most of what I see in films and T.V. lately... but THIS is SUBLIME! Though it's hilarious and campy, the lyrics are witty and demand intelligence, and the music's terrific, as is every single performance. But there just isn't any actor or aspect of the show to single out as brilliant; every moment of Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical is no less than perfect! My husband, my friends and I haven't been able to stop watching it (it was on Showtime On Demand 'til Saturday), nor can we get the songs out of our heads.... Surely Showtime is going to rerun this on DVD, and (PLEASE!) release it on DVD A.S.A.P. Do yourself a favor and catch it.(And no, I'm in no way affiliated... just a film "buff"!)
