Storyline

Life is good for Jack, Carter and Harlan, three inept ne'r-do-wells who help run master dope-grower Malcoms flourishing marijuana plantation somewhere in northern California. But then Malcom is suddenly bumped off by a mysterious assailant, after a moment of panic, the naive trio decide to take over the business themselves. However, their lazy days on the dope farm have ill prepared them for the high-stakes game of finding buyers for millions of dollars of contraband. As they plunge into a shadowy new world of duplicity, double-dealing and danger, they soon find that they have gotten in way, way over their heads. But driven on by increasing greed and paranoia, it's too late to back out. Written by Eva Tauzer <eva@mte.hupe.hu>

Goofs

After an establishing shot that shows Jack Marsden driving into San Francisco via the Golden Gate Bridge, the close-up of him in the BMW shows he's traveling on a different bridge - one that's constructed of gray metal trusses and girders, rather than the famous red-orange of the Golden Gate Bridge.

a fun romp
27 December 2003 | by donndahliaSee all my reviews

A fun romp...a lot of good twists and turns! (and we were not even baked!)

Didn't know this movie even existed until watching the extra trailers on a Monty Python DVD...(oddly it was there along with The City of Lost Children, and The Adventures of Baron Munchauhsen)

The plot keeps you wondering throughout.

The acting was awesome...Hank Azaria shows his talent again, Bill Bob is Billy Bob...(wecis?)

Definitely worth watching.
