I was going to review this movie earlier today along with the rest of them, but I got too high and forgot! Wooo! High! Heh… okay, actually I was just playing Lego Indiana Jones. 2.
Half Baked is about a group of friends who start selling weed so they can raise money to get their friend out of jail. They come across all sorts of different comic stereotypes, including the rival drug dealer, who threatens their lives, kills their dog, and… is a bad guy. In general. Also Dave Chappelle gets a girlfriend named Maryjane who doesn’t want him to smoke pot. Wacky!
Actually, this is a pretty good movie. It’s a fun stoner comedy that weirdly specifically aims to teach the viewer about customs and practices in the marijuana smoking community. It’s basically half an instructional video, even ending with the “check out your local library” PSA sting at the end. But no, it’s pretty funny.
