They'll do anything to save their best bud.
Three lovable party buds try to bail their friend out of jail. But just when the guys have mastered a plan, everything comes dangerously close to going up in smoke.
A colorful but ever-so-slightly tedious stoner comedy, Tamra Davis's "Half Baked" leads to as many laughs as it does eye rolls. The two mostly cancel each other out, resulting in a film that ranges from watchable to less-than-so. Dave Chappelle supplies plenty of comic charm, but he alone can not elevate the experience.
The plot revolves around a group of cannabis enthusiasts who find themselves selling weed to free a friend from prison. It is all a loose collection of pot-gags, movie parodies, and, umm, half baked narrative threads that have no desire to weave together. Chappelle entertains, and his romantic subplot with Rachel True is engaging; there just is not enough of it to power a respectable plot. Still,…
"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.
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…
The kind of movie in which, during a flashback/dream sequence, a street sign reads "Memory Ln." Take what you will from that...
Charming, I suppose. It did influence me on a deep level. I will now yell "I got booty" after every sexual encounter.
To say this movie is half baked would be quite the overstatement.
I really miss Dave. Although I'm not really into stoner comedies but well...this had some good laughs...and some stinkers.
Also, Rachel True is pretty hot in this (+1/2 Star).
"THIS HORSE IS A DIABETIC!!!!"
Fun stoner movie ala Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Though it has a flair of Dave Chappelle taking over Eddie Murphy duties playing two characters. Not to mention Jim Breuer. It's a simple movie with simple goals. Don't take it too seriously, or you miss the point.
Showing us the drug life of the 90's vs now, I never thought you could be a dimwit but still be successful in drug dealing. These knuckle-head pals needed to make money fast to bail their other friend out of jail. The only way they could do that was to sell marijuana by coming up with their own business. The movie satisfied me most of the time but it wasn't believable how easy they made money but again it's only a movie. If your into the 90's slang then I recommend watching.
don't really remember what happened
idk why ive seen this movie so many tmies, but i have.
I love Dave Chappelle and a lot of the other folks in this movie. The real laughs are few and far between, tho.
Amusing. Not ha ha funny. But a nice waste of time.
