    Enough low-grade laughs to entertain significantly more than some of the more prestigious year-end releases.
  2. Enough cheery mockery to amuse even non-tokers.
  3. Dylan's stoner comedy barely manages to string together a story, but lucky for him, his two stars radiate charisma even when they're hidden behind clouds of smoke.

    The biggest problem, ironically, is that even though the plot and the action center on smoking pot, it's not enough of a stoner flick. The concept of getting stoned isn't amusing; watching stoned people is.
  5. 30
    Too lazy to be a comedy, too conventional to be a head movie.
  6. 25
    This mess was directed with no skill whatsoever by Jesse Dylan, whose father, Bob, once urged us all to get stoned.
  7. Just when it looked like "Not Another Teen Movie" might claim the crap crown comes this stoner's tale.

    THE greatest stoner movie of all time. Want a experience you'll always remember? Get a 10 bag, invite your best buddy over, get some drink and food and sit back and just laugh at absolutely everything. Brilliant film! Expand

    When I was a young'n I was in love with this movie. Now that I am older, I realize how stupid it really is. But it's just stupid enough to keep you intrigued. Expand
