    Product Description

    Loaded with some of today's hottest young comedy stars, Half-Baked is the hilarious adventure of three loveable party buds trying to find cash to bail their friend out of jail. But just when the guys have mastered a plan, everything comes dangerously close to going up in smoke! With numerous cameo appearances by: Janeane Garofalo, Snoop Doggy Dog, Willie Nelson, Stephen Baldwin, Bob Saget, Jon Stewart and Tommy Chong.

    Cannabis comedy doesn't get more juvenile than this pro-pot goof about three stoners who come to the rescue of a fourth buddy when he's arrested for feeding a lethal dose of junk food to a diabetic police horse. Kenny (Harland Williams) is sent to jail, and to rescue him from the almost inevitable trauma of homosexual rape (giving you some idea of this movie's level of humor), his buddies set out to raise his $100,000 bail by selling high-grade weed ripped off from a pharmaceutical research lab. That's about it for the plot; the rest of the movie's a parade of marijuana jokes and amusing pot-friendly cameos by the likes of Snoop Dog, Willie Nelson, and Janeane Garofalo. As two of the bong-hitting buddies, Jim Breuer (from Saturday Night Live) and comedian Dave Chappelle do their best to disguise the movie's lack of inspiration. But no matter how hard they try to milk laughs from the one-joke premise, they can't stop the movie's title from being an apt description of the movie itself. -- Jeff Shannon

    5.0 out of 5 stars Put on a smiley face! February 16, 2005
    I remember when this movie was first advertised. I thought it looked ridiculous and never bothered. Then I caught it on cable and was completely surprised. This movie ranks up there with the best rewatchable comedies of all time like Office Space, Caddyshack and The Big Lebowski. It has great characters, scenes, quotes and cameos. Dave Chapelle is halarious. I highly recommend this "fully baked" DVD to all comedy fans, not just stoners! The new edition features deleted scenes and an alternate ending. It was great to see some of the stuff that they cut out. I wish they would have left the additional Killer footage in. Too funny.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Half Arsed Edition December 19, 2005
    A hilarious movie for everyone who likes stoner/slacker movies, Bill & Ted's, Saturday Night Live, and offbeat comedy in general. Dave Chapelle and Jim Breuer are riotous, and the movie itself is pretty decent. There are some really funny lines in here and you can see a lot of that trademark Chapelle humor that he would later make famous on his Comedy Central show. You can read about the story elsewhere so I am going to talk about the DVD itself.

    Commentaries and extras are a deciding factor for me when purchasing DVD's. Being called the "Fully Baked" edition, I had high expectations for this, but in terms of features, this DVD is only on par with current generation DVDs (commentaries, deleted scenes, featurettes).

    The first problem is when you load the DVD, there's a smoking symbol and a non-smoking symbol to choose from, with no description of what they mean. Selecting either leads to the same features, with only the main background animation being different. Are they the director's cut and the theatrical release? I can't tell.

    Lackluster commentary: Tamra Davis is completely dull! Of the more than 100 DVD's I own and dozens of other commentaries I have listened to on rented DVD's, I can't think of a more sleep-inducing commentary than hers. She is silent for long stretches of time and I spent as much time waiting for her to say something as I did listening to her talk. It is obvious she hadn't seen the film in years (something she even says at the beginning of the track), and she came totally unprepared to do the commentary recording.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Samson Gets Me Lifted September 10, 2004
    (...)Half Baked is Dave Chappelle's coming out party. This movie is friggin' hilarious. Based around 4 pothead buddies, one of which (Kenny aka Harland Williams) gets thrown in jail for killing a horse leaving Chappelle, Jim Breuer and Guillermo Diaz having to come up with 100 large to free their buddy. So how else would three stoners get the kind of money they need to free their friend? "Let's sell weed yo!" So Chappelle, Diaz and Breuer become "fundraisers" not drug dealers to get their friend away from the "naughty, naughty jungle of love". There are so many funny lines from this movie that I cannot even recall them all but definitely one of the best scenes is when Chappelle dresses up as Mr. Nice Guy and goes to see Sampson. "What part of Jamaica are you from?" Chappelle answers "Right near the beeeech...lord have mercy". Half Baked is pee your pants funny and without a doubt worth owning on dvd. It is one of the funniest movies of the past 15 years. Highest Recommendation. P.S. "Yo they were doin' karate man, they had nun-chucks, they be doin' indian burns man, i'm serious". Enjoy!

    1.0 out of 5 stars Love Half Baked; Hated This DVD October 27, 2006
    If you already own "Half Baked," don't waste your money on the "Fully Baked Edition" DVD, because the extras are a huge waste of time -- the added comedy bits are so poor it's embarrassing, like something high school kids would produce. The director commentary is also thoroughly uninteresting -- she just repeatedly says "That was funny." When you watch the deleted scenes, you'll say, "I see why they deleted that." There's nothing of value here.

    Dave Chapelle had nothing to do with this edition -- he's not on the commentary track or in any of the bonus materials, nor are any other actors from the film.

    Don't be confused -- I LOVE LOVE LOVE Half Baked -- and I HATED the extras on this DVD. Total waste of time and money, a big disappointment to Half Baked fans.

    Sampson gets me lifted!

    1.0 out of 5 stars Cashing in March 16, 2005
    I'm a huge fan of half baked as I'm sure most people are. Hoping to receive more hilarious footage and outtakes of everyones favorite stoners I found myself buying the new edition of this dvd. How could you miss with a list of added features such as..

    Five Minutes with the "The Guy on the Couch"

    Different Types of Smokers

    Granny's Guide to Bakin'

    Well they missed big time. The guy on the couch.. some imitation rolling around for five minutes with a pillow covering his face as he rolled of the couch. Lame! Types of smokers.. animated and not even amusing. Granny's baking someone throwing a bunch of things in a pot like a cooking show. The whole thing was poorly produced. The only additional footage was things that they edited out of the film. ie originally they had Kenny calling Thurgood to do the whole scene in the movie where they visited him and tell him how they are going to get him out.

    This is a pitiful attempt to turn a buck off of Half Baked's fan base. I want my money back.
