However, he ends up getting roped into a drug trade ring with an undercover Snoop Dogg, who has found himself in a similar conflict with the law. Dr. Wolfman has to clear the name of both him and Mr. Dogg, while also staying under the radar of the school's administration. Can he make it back in time to save the world?

Light hearted and funny. Although with a limited target audience.
31 July 2013 | by fistygoldSee all my reviews

I've wanted to watch this movie from a long time. Only knowing that it has a lot of "greenery" in it. All the while curious about these hip hop stars and their execution of this seemingly bizarre idea. I took the instructions of "slowburn" and lit up a joint as I waited for the show to start. And there was one thing I was surprised to notice. I could actually understand, no wait, FEEL everything that the movie was showing me. The humor typical of young American teens who are carefree on one hand, and fiercely loyal on the other. It touches a deeper nerve than what it shows on the outside. A deeper philosophy than what most might be able to grasp. Yeah its not visually "stunning", yes its script is minimal, yes it has first time actor Wiz Khalifa as the lead actor, but its understated charm lies somewhere else entirely. Somewhere it should be. And that's the camaraderie between Wiz and Snoop dogg, the fun times they share together, and the unflinching loyalty that their friendship has. There is a reason you are asked to be "medicated" while watching this short film. You are able to grasp the absolute core, the innermost quality that it has what most Oscar winning movies don't. And that is the innocence beneath all the cannabis and swears. The friendship as it should be taught by the leads, and the happy go lucky, carefree philosophy most would never be able to use in their lives. Its a far from perfect movie, I agree. But it has its own charm in the crazy characters of the college, the topsy turvy lives of the leads, and most of all, the N.Hale college, which is a small world in itself.
