I predict that this movie, once more people discover it, will become a cult classic. It is absurd and dark and slapstick and superficially quite silly, but actually insanely clever. There are moments in this movie where I had to pause the DVD because I was laughing so hard. I don't smoke at all, but like the Big Lebowski, I can see this movie becoming really popular as a stoner flick. There is subtle political commentary, but above all, this movie is memorable for its idiosyncratic characters, ridiculous plot turns, and hilarious one- liners and gags - again, a lot of the humor is dark. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
