Misinformation propaganda at its worst
19 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a crummy relic from the genre of 80's educational videos meant to be shown in school. This movie is not only misleading about drugs, but makes some strange metaphors as well. It states smoking marijuana is six times as lethal as smoking cigarettes which is not true, and completely ignores questions such as 'If all drugs are bad then why are alcohol and tobacco legal while pot is not?'. This series of shorts follows a golden white boy as his skateboarding friends try to pressure him to use drugs. When he's put in a tough situation, a mystery angel named cosmo comes and takes him up in a space elevator where there's bad songs about drugs and lots and lots of brainwashing. The truly hilarious part is when the film focuses on the media's role in creating a distorted image of "drugs", because the whole movie distorts information and presents an untrue image of drugs as well. There are very very crummy special effects and awful songs and nonsensical metaphors and the whole thing is actually pretty enjoyable if you can get your hands on something this movie tells you not to do. I didn't watch this expecting it to be good, and it wasn't, but it is a good laugh if you like making fun of trash.
