Olivia Alaina May,
Taj Mahal Badalandabad leaves Coolidge College behind for the halls of Camford University in England, where he looks to continue his education, and teach an uptight student how to make the most out of her academic career.
I suppose if you go into this film with the mindset that it was done by The Asylum then you might not be terribly disappointed. I make a point of watching many of The Asylum's films just to see how bold they are with ripping off whatever it is they're ripping off this time. If you don't know The Asylum, they're bread and butter is taking popular blockbusters and making blatant knock-offs that usually beat the actual movies to market simply for the fact that they're so cheap. For instance, when The Day The Earth Stood Still came out, Asylum's response was The Day The Earth Stopped (starring C. Thomas Howell, no less). Or when Terminator: Salvation came out The Asylum was right there with The Terminators. If that gives you any idea of the level of "film making" going on over there, then you know what you're in for.
Anyway, onto the movie. A bit of departure for The Asylum, I couldn't figure out what movie they were ripping off. Maybe because there's so many boring weed comedies out there, but I assume they're trying to capitalize on some of the newer Seth Rogan features. You've basically got two moron stoners who get ahold of some super special pot that makes girls horny and their constant quest to get laid and navigate wacky hi jinx. I know by now you're thinking this couldn't possibly get more juvenile, but you'd be wrong. There's a ton (almost constant, actually) of sex jokes that, while mildly amusing, aren't in any way doing anything for the movie. And I'll be the first to admit I'm a fan of gratuitous nudity, but even I found myself wondering if about 50% of the stuff was really necessary. I suppose I can't, in all fairness, expect any movie that centers around weed to have some intelligence or meaning, but this is clearly pandering to the lowest common denominator. That, or 15 year olds who still think this is the funniest thing ever.
All told I guess if you have an idea of what you're in for it's not awful and, in the grand scheme of other Asylum productions, not nearly as derivative. Then again it's certainly not good. If you're reading this and happen to be 15, go out and rent it (but get mommy and daddy's permission first). If you're any older you should know better unless you are stoned as well in which case your opinion matters little more than a 15 year old's anyway.
