Not really a documentary
23 July 2008 | by (Baltimore) – See all my reviews

For Starters, this should be called "The Benson Standup while high" comedy routine. Literally 80% of this film is just him performing stand up with poor lighting in various clubs across the U.S., talking about how he is or how great it is to be high. It's one thing to have a serious discussion about the effects of marijuana, but its completely pointless to hear some stoner talk about how high he is and how great he feels. All it does is further validate the stereotype that many people who smoke pot just bores everyone else with various uninteresting stories about how high they were in situations which they vaguely remember. Additionally, when the entire comedic material is about smoking, it gets old. Chapelle or another comedian wouldn't be very funny if their entire routine was based on one subject either.

There is more scientific research found in a 7th grade science fair project than this farcical attempt at a "scientific" experiment about smoking marijuana. One of the stronger parts of the film was the discussion of medicinal marijuana and its effects, particularly among seriously ill patients, but that was short lived, as the "documentary" quickly cut to yet ANOTHER dimly lit stand up routine.

"Super Size Me" was interesting but the downfall in that documentary was that the result of eating fast food everyday for a month was hardly surprising or controversial, making the movie a foregone conclusion before it even began. Benson had an opportunity to tackle a serious and controversial subject that is hardly settled, sprinkled with moments of hilarity. Benson should have used his comedy routines as a crutch, not as a pillar, using it now and then to provide some levity to the film. Instead, what we got was some stoner who had a little too much financial backing, advertising his own stand up routine. The contribution this film gave toward the debate of smoking marijuana is basically unchartable. I would expect high school stoners to put together a more insightful and scientific project than this.

However, Benson really gave away his lack of commitment to a real project on smoking marijuana, as at one point in the film he states something along the lines of "I'm not really into the whole activist marijuana thing, I just wanna smoke". I only wish that this was shown in a trailer, so I could have gotten at least one red flag that this film wasn't going to be very good.
