Goofs

At the beginning of the movie, two kids are playing a prank on a third by dropping him in the pool, and they film it on camera. A little later, the assistant dean is watching it on some "youtube similar site", but the point of view is the movie camera, not the kids' camera, who presumably uploaded the movie. See more »

Be sure to stay after the credits for the bonus scene! Way better than I thought it would be, they really botched the trailers for this one. Hanks give a great performance. Being close friends with someone who works in public education I can say that the characters in this film do exist out there in real life. Unlike many other films in this genre there is not gratuitous amounts of time spent showing people actually consuming the herb, the screen time is instead spent on plot and some really funny jokes. The characters have some depth which helps pull you in to the story. Not nearly as many stereotypes as I was expecting. Our theater had both young and old alike in attendance and everyone was laughing at all the right spots. Slam or beer or something before you go to get in the mood, hehehehe "Whut?"
