Not much of a plot but still somewhat amusing stoner-comedy
12 October 2013 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

Not sure why but I found this movie kind of entertaining, it's definitely not a well-directed or well-written or well-performed movie but it's something about it's easygoingness that at least I couldn't help but to enjoy.

Let's face it this is not meant to compete with any potential academy award nominees, it's a stoner-comedy, in the fashion of Cheech and Chong or Friday, I think the movie is made by stoners for stoners.

Devin The Dude who has one of the lead is definitely a stoner with half of the songs in his more than 15 year old rapcarreer being directly about or referencing weed in his songs.

Although he's acting isn't "good" per se, he does come off as sort of likable.

The other dude Lil Duval (?) I thought that was G Baby from HARD BALL grown up but turned out it wasn't, boy could sho nuff frown like him though.

He was alright I guess but comes across as a cheaper version of Kevin Hart.

Eddie Griffin gets top billing on the DVDcover but he's only in it for 2 minutes, he plays a white redneck (yup) and his makeup is just awful and he fails at bringing the laughs unfortunately as well.

Keith David with his face on the cover and all is in it for 2 scenes.

Then you got a small cameo from Tiny Lister, and Erik Estrada (who I didn't even recognize) plays a smaller but "important" role (if you can call any role in this movie important lol).

To sum it all up, the plot is stupid but if you don't mind stupid plots and you're in for a stoner-comedy you could do worse.
