They'll do anything to save their best bud.
Thurgood and his friends Brian and Scarface are forced into selling medical marijuana stolen from the lab where Thurgood works as a "custodian" (janitor) in order to bail their friend Kenny out of jail, after he accidentally killed a diabetic police horse by feeding it junk food.
Stoner comedies are usually harder to make, because they have to be funny not just to those familiar with the affects of pot, but also to those who never tried it before.
And I am in the latter camp, never had done any drugs. Yet comedy is a universal thing, and one can look to Harold and Kumar and see a really well made comedy (the first two at least) that uses pot(or MJ, reefer whatever) as part of the film and define the character, but uses it in a smart way.
Sadly Half Baked has one of the stupidest stories, but one that is really almost devoid of any laughs. While most stoner stories are rather stupid, there is…
"F*ck you! F*ck you! F*ck you! You're cool. F*ck you!" It is my dream to quit a job in exactly this manner.
The kind of movie in which, during a flashback/dream sequence, a street sign reads "Memory Ln." Take what you will from that...
You have smoked yourself retarded.
If the aim of a stoner comedy is to entertain someone when they're stoned, then Half Baked definitely delivers on that front.
Silly & harmless humour, ridiculous & hilarious dream sequences, creative & crazy camerawork, as well as scene-stealing cameos from a certain smooth-ass hip hop artist ("too bad man, I just stopped smoking yesterday"), and a particular genius comedy news show host as *that guy* ("ever seen Scent of a Woman...on weed?") ... Great fun.
The $8.00 scene is pure genius.
Charming, I suppose. It did influence me on a deep level. I will now yell "I got booty" after every sexual encounter.
Add an extra star if you are appropriately inebriated.
Good old Times
Kult oder nicht, am besten ist es wenn man drauf ist.
My review -- this film is now on DVD and I must confess I am really confused to not only how this film project made a profit margin but somehow it made it into double figures for profit. I would like to stress from the very beginning this project has an 18 certificate for a very good reason, one reason being the majority references and visual aspects of substance-abuse and the second being the extreme mature comedy references and many other aspects so I would not recommend showing this project to anyone under this age range. The contents briefly the viewer has this small cluster of long-term friends that become potheads and as the years roll on they are now…
What is there to say about a stoner comedy movie like this, it's a modern-day Cheech and Chong that actually has Chong in it! Some great quotes come from this script and some hilarious performances from some great comedians!
This should have been a movie I watched as a kid or not at all. I like the tone that Dave Chappelle and Guillermo Diaz are pulling off. I hate what Jim Breuer is doing. The random cameos make fun some solid laughs too. Just makes me wish they were a bigger part of the movie.
"You have smoked yourself retarded." "I don't want to be the first nigger to die of a crossbow."
Chappelle can sell almost every joke he is ever given. Just brilliant. Like everyone, I wish there was more of him.
Classic. Roll a few, turn down the lights, smack half baked on the screen and enjoy.
