It'd be nice if someone could make some stoner films that aren't filled with clichés/rip offs/stereotypes.
Someone wrote in a review that it was like the wolf of wall street but for bud... they're right. But it's not a good thing, you can see what they have imitated very clearly. The weird cop who stops them is a rip off from Super Troopers (he says meow before he walks back to his car for no reason - the game in super troopers). They also casually enforce really bad stoner stereotypes which are the source of the stigma behind smoking cannabis. I could go on.
The characters don't feel real. None of them have charisma and I feel like I'm hearing a story from the one kid at school who lies and exaggerates to sound cool and I can't wait for it to be over. I know it's based on true events but it's clearly heavily dramatized and badly written.
The only redeeming feature of this film is a couple of famous names I didn't expect to see in such a shocker and some technical knowledge. Emphasis on some.
Top ten worst stoner movies.
