    The film is too slapdash and self-serving to take seriously (it’s release is timed to the precede thesame-named album’s release next month), but it’s a casually entertaining trip, aimed at fans of the charismatic rapper and his recreational substance of choice.

    An all-access pass to an artist embarking on a new path, this is entertaining stuff – funny, disarming, even poignant. It's also jammed with terrific music.

    Director Andy Capper crafts a surprisingly moving story, particularly in Snoop’s reactions to the deaths of Biggie Smalls and Tupac Shakur.

    Snoop has certainly tempered his worldview, but enlightenment isn’t as evident here as much as a woozy weariness, perhaps a long-term byproduct of being very, very stoned.

    It features more weed than a pot-warming party at Bill & Ben's but offers little more than spliff-glazed promotion for Snoop's reggae reincarnation.

    It’s a premise that sounds like the silliest of celebrity vanity but is, in fact, presented as an endearing portrayal of Rastafari culture, spiritual exploration and Snoop’s own past, present and future.

    Part of Snoop’s protean quality comes from the fact that his rhymes only cut so far: He can pivot freely because he’s never dug in too deep.

    A friend of mine put this on for my boyfriend and me to watch. It seemed like a good pick based on the current mood we were in. I had no idea about Snoop changing his name and thought at first it was pretty stupid and silly, but our friend assured us we would understand after watching this documentary. I enjoyed some of it, mostly the more honest scenes where Snoop talks about his past and how he wanted to make more positive music, and honestly the music was groovy. The only problems I had with it were it was a little too long for what it was and the running time (especially in the middle) made it lose it's initial impact it had in the first 30 minutes of the film. Overall I had a good time watching it with my friends and the ending scenes were well done but that middle part made it feel sluggish until it finally crossed the finish line. Collapse

    Calvin Broadus goes on a pilgrimage to Jamaica, what do you think is going to happen? You got it, a inordinate amount of of smoking. I commend the earnest crusade to reinvent yourself as a artist and Snoop does manage to lay down some acceptable reggae tracks with Diplo but most of this reel is too insistent on getting Snoop Lion high.
