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.
well. ya know.
Let me tell you something: I love weed. I love it! But not as much as I love pussy!
This film is crazy. Chappelle again is brilliant, just like in Undercover Brother. You can see why it's got such a cult following though.
as a chappelle fan, i expected a lot more from this movie. it's not fun. and this is a stoner flick, c'mon! jim breuer get annoying real quick and chappelle restrains himself a great deal. this movie felt like an excuse to watch a tit popping out in the middle of a fight.
cliche hence fun, rarity.
Maybe it's just because I watched too much Comedy Central as a kid, but Half Baked is my favorite stoner movie ever and I will defend it to my death.
In the origins of cheech and Chong and dazed confused comes half baked, funny, great cast and just one good of a stoner ride.
This is always a great funny movie to watch.
Add an extra star if you are appropriately inebriated.
Good old Times
Here is what I hope becomes a comprehensive list of every film worthy of being labeled a cult classic.
Feel free to recommend any to add to the list.
