an unusual film for at least two reasons: it’s an action-comedy and it peaks at the end, rather than in the middle, as most comedies do. it’s also odd because david gordon green is the director and he’s considered more of an indie darling than a director of stoner comedies. i happen to think he’s overrated and this film didn’t sway my decision. his use of music left a lot to be desired. there were only a couple songs in the film and some original music written for the film, but none of it really lifted the film. a good soundtrack would have made the film a good deal better.
franco is a standout and shows his range.Watched in theater
