5 July 2012 | by (Vancouver, Canada) – See all my reviews

I normally don't write reviews, but I felt compelled to write one after being highly disappointed with the outcome of this movie. Being originally from Pittsburgh, I was exposed to Wiz Khalifa when he was just an underground mix tape artist. The moment I heard him and Snoop were doing a movie, I was dying to see what type of film they would put together. I knew it wasn't going to be a Oscar nominee, but I was excited to see it for what it was, a stoner movie. I anticipated it to be a movie like How High mixed with a little bit of Superbad. The movie starts out with a cartoon clip of this character slow burn who at first seems like a good addition to the movie. He tells you to smoke some weed before the movie because, well lets face it, you cannot watch this movie sober (it's that bad). At various points, slow burn stops the movie to say some irrelevant things that seems like they are just there to fill up some space. It really bothered me, it is like when you are trying to watch a movie and someone keeps trying to talk to you, it really messed with the flow of the story (if you can even call it a story). Also, the movie was stopped multiple times for Mac and Devin to preform full length songs, which also seems like it was there to just fill up space. It would have been less irritating if the videos were placed at the end of the movie or added into the special features. The movie didn't have a smooth flow or an actual plot line. The story was a recycled script that was generic and vanilla. I know it's a movie, but it still has to be some what realistic. I couldn't take Snoop seriously as a 15 year senior, it just wasn't logical. I laughed a few times, but only because of the stony persona they both have and because I'm a long time fan of both the artists (also i was a little spacey). The movie was pushed back multiple times and it seems like they knew it was going to be bad, but they just hyped it up so that people would buy it. I wouldn't consider it a movie. Maybe if they posted it on YouTube or made it for TV then I would not have been as upset with it. Thank God I torrented it and didn't pay actual money for it. At the end of it, I was scratching my head in the world did this movie get made? This is coming from a fan, I wanted to like the movie, but I just could NOT enjoy it….that's saying something. It seemed short and the ending didn't feel like a real ending. I don't care if it was low budget, that is no excuse. Wiz and Snoop should stick to what they know best, making music and smoking weed. Films are definitely not their thing. The soundtrack is great though!
