Dark and dirty action comedy about sex, guns and weed starring Jason Mewes (Clerks, Jay & Silent Bob, Dogma), Craig Michaelson and Weston Cage. Deet n Bax; best friends and struggling weedprenuers unknowingly help an undercover agent infiltrate a South American drug cartel as they cross paths with an eccentric billionaire trying to take over the world.
Where to begin. I managed to find a free copy of it on youtube so thankfully I never paid for it. Nor should anyone. There is literally nothing good about this "film".
Let's starts with the script: It was as if a lazy 14 year old highschool student scrambled to slapt together at the last moment his assignment that was due for his writing 101 class.
Story: There was no story. Just two guys masturbating and crapping all over the screen. The entire "plot" of "saving the world" took place in the last act over a span of about 4-minutes. And it wasn't even the main characters who saved the world, it was some random goon. Then the plot shifted to an abysmally boring "sub"-plot with Wes Cage and how they stole his seeds... Why not just call the movie Deet n Bax steel seeds is beyond me. That's what the overall plot was about anyway. I think. But over all, the writer/director I don't think had a clue what he was doing.
Acting: ... None. Just a bunch of people rambling at the camera for a good hour. About nothing. I'm not kidding, there is no dialog in this movie. It's just the director having no idea how to write dialog so he asked his actors to just spit stuff out and use ALL of it in the final cut... Which brings me to...
The Editing:.... Holy ****. I haven't seen such poor editing in a "budgeted" film outside of a middleschool film project. For a movie with clearly money attached to it, you'd think they could have hired an actual editor and not just some guy who can use "cool effects on the puter". No, this has got to be some of the worst I've ever seen. Audio that clipped, horrible pacing, a terrible product placement that I don't think is actually a product showing up literally ever 2 minutes. Did the producers not know how product placement work? Did they think they needed to create one in order to have one? How is that helping them!? Product placement is meant for the producer to get money for the product!
The Humor: Hah! The funniest part of the movie was that they thought they were being funny. The jokes were like a 50 year old was trying to cater to a younger audience. It was painful.
The best part of all of this... It was so confident in itself. It knew it was going to succeed. And now all that "420k" budget is going to never be returned again.
This honestly belongs on the IMDb bottom 100.
