At some point, the pot smoking, cuss word spewing, inappropriate humor gets over done. While there is a lot of laughs, there are too many flaws in this movie to call it a great comedy. It's too long, especially when less then half the jokes cause me to laugh. I'd say this movie is hilarious to the immature teenagers who wish they were part of the pot smoking group in the movie, or to actual pot smoking groups out there who find this movie hitting home.

There are a lot of great comedies out there that make wish the movie was longer, this was definitely not one of them.

2/4 stars
