Roscoe Lee Browne: Shall we say a few words about Brevin Ericson? Shall we say a few words about love? For Brevin Ericson is completely, 100%, head-over-heels, in love. Perhaps it's difficult for you to comprehend how anybody could be so passionately-inclined toward someone like this. But do not judge her too harshly. After all, how was she to know they were pot cupcakes. And ask yourselves: who amongst you might not have done the same? Who are we to judge what beats in a young man's heart?

Really Funny! Made me laugh throughout!
10 January 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I can't believe there are so many negative reviews for this film. I guess it's either you love it, or hate it.

Personally this was a comic portrayal of pot use and it's not supposed to be taken as seriously as some of the reviewers have made it seem. Jane (Anna Faris) did a great job being blissfully stoned throughout the movie. She made good use of all the stoner stereotypes and I loved the expressions that she used throughout the movie.

There were quite a few comic moments throughout the film that I'm sure a stoner could relate to. There was no storyline, but it also doesn't need one! I mean seriously, stoner's don't have an elaborate storyline in real life, why would they have one in a movie about stoners!? It was just good brainless entertainment!
