Super High Me
Determined to find out the true effects of marijuana on the human body, stand-up comedian and former Stoner of the Year Doug Benson documents his experience avoiding pot for 30 days and then consuming massive amounts of the drug for 30 days. More than just an amusing story of one man's quest to get superhigh, this documentary also examines the hotly contested debate over medical marijuana use.
Doug Benson, one of my favorite stand-up comedians, and the host of the amazing Doug Love Movies podcast, takes inspiration from Morgan Spurlock by staying completely sober for 30 days, and then smoking pot constantly for 30 days, and nothing is really learned from it, as was pretty much expected. Naturally, there’s plenty of funny stuff, but the movie’s major flaw is that it occasionally very feebly attempts to make a statement. There’s all this footage of dispensaries being raided by the cops, and it’s not like Doug Benson is there commenting or anything, it’s just completely random footage that has no place in a comedic documentary. And when it comes down to it, no matter how hilarious Doug Benson may be, I don’t fucking give a shit about marijuana.
Just made me hungry and want to get baked!
'Super High Me is an interesting play on Super Size Me, but I felt it wasn't really 'full enough' to warrant a whole movie. Maybe this would be better suited for a TV Special?
We follow comedian Doug Benson, a regular pot smoker, as he goes cold turkey for 30 days, followed by an all out green-fest for the next 30 days. Also included are many interviews with weed experts, user, owners of plantations and dispensaries, fellow comedians, and many more.
It was entertaining definitely, and watching Doug do some of the tests and do standup when he was stoned off his head was quite funny, but there just wasn't enough in it to…
This is an actual credit: "Based on a joke by Doug Benson"
Doug Benson, a comedian whose observational humor often revolves around his life as a high-functioning stoner, made a 90-minute film off a joke. That should tell you all you need to know about this film.
I love Doug Benson. He's got an incredible passion for watching and discussing movies, which I enjoy tremendously. This documentary doesn't touch that side of his personality.
Instead, we're treated to a rip-off of Morgan Spurlock's "Super Size Me." Benson goes sober for 30 days and then spends 30 days ingesting as much marijuana as he can. It proves nothing, because Benson is better at some things while high or worse at others…
New insights into the societal effects of medical marijuana laws or the physical/psychological effects of prolonged marijuana use? Well... no.
If you like Doug Benson, marijuana or both you'll probably like it...
One star for PFT appearance.
'Super Size Me' me pareció en su momento un documental muy interesante, con un mensaje y un objetivo muy claro, pero esta versión carece de todo lo nombrado. Doug Benson no es un mal comediante pero es que esto es de los mas aburrido y estupido que he visto en muchísimo tiempo.
Since I don't really smoke, I found this to be kinda boring and not really funny. I enjoy his stand-up, but this movie didn't do it for me.
A Stand up comedian say Super Size Me, and said.. hey, let me do that.. but only with Weed!
Had some funny moments, but I don't know if it really helped the weed should be legal movement.
I'm totally for weed to be legal. Tax it and make money off of it. It has so many good heaths benefits. It an anti-depression, an anti-anxiety, painkiller, and many many other great stuff.
MAKE IT LEGAL EVERYWHERE.
But.. this film only helps a tad.
Your entertainment level may vary based on how amused you are by Doug Benson and his antics but as a fan, this doc was just the right combo of interesting and entertaining.
Another stoner documentary that offers little except the charming Doug.
Awesomely entertaining and enjoyable.
i actually learned a lot from this and thought it was funny which is impressive because i wasnt stoned
No cool structure at all.
No real narrative.
Not funny at all...
