An Original Look at a Controversial Subject
7 May 1999 | by JG-19See all my reviews

The Moneytree is a fresh look at a typically cliche subject, marijuana farming. In most movies the harvesters are portrayed as either diabolical deviants who endeavor to enslave a naive population or red-eyed goofs who can barely function under a smoke-filled haze. Look at Reefer Madness or any of the Cheech and Chong movies for examples. The Moneytree, in contrast, grounds itself in the day-to-day realities of marijuana farming and presents an honest look at the choices a potential harvester might face. Filmed in front of a bud-filled backdrop, the Moneytree defies convention and offers a look at the other side of the headlines.
