one of the better comedies of the year, it’s also one of the more ambitious. ambitious because it’s clearly a silly film which relies heavily on gutter humor, but it still has some ambitious directorial decisions and some biting social commentary. it’s also a film that rises above simply relying on stoner humor. i’m about as far from a stoner as is possible, but i still found the film to be eminently enjoyable. it made fun of stoners and anti-drug commercials alike and i enjoy that because the truth is that both sides can be pretty damned ridiculous and worthy of mockery.
