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.

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.

(...)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!

It's hard to write a review for a movie this funny, you don't want to give it away!

Basic synopsis: Four friends live in an apartment together: Thurgood (Dave Chappelle), Brian (Jim Breuer), Scarface (Guillermo Diaz), and Kenny (Harland Williams), they all get stoned one night and get the munchies, Kenny goes to the store to get food, and ends up "murdering" a police horse. The three remaining friends start an in-house drug syndicate called Mr. Nice Guy with medical marijuana stolen from Thurgood's office to raise $100,000 to bail Kenny out of jail. Needless to say, hilarity ensues. Lookout for cameos from a pre-Daily Show Jon Stewart (Enhancement Smoker), Janeane Garafalo (Creative Smoker), Snoop Dogg (Scavenger Smoker), and Willie Nelson (Hippie Smoker), they're hilarious! The drop-dead gorgeous Rachel True appears as Thurgood's non-smoking love interest aptly name Mary Jane and Clarence Williams III is Samson, the rival drug dealer with a pseudo-blaxplotative look.

If you haven't seen Half Baked, see it! If you have a sense of humor, you'll laugh until you cry!

This version is basically complete garbage as Dave Chappelle & Neal Brennan had absolutely nothing to do with its release. The extras are worthless. Who honestly gives a damn about Granny's recipes (something that wasn't mentioned in the movie), or 5 minutes with a fat guy sleeping on a couch that isn't Steven Wright. The extras & the Extras on The Jerk DVD that was released around the same time, are a complete embarrassment. Paramount should learn to give fans what they want, not make up new extra's with 0 context to the movie they are appearing on. This is as bad as the first season of Viva La Bam (which was censored, even though the packing said it was uncensored). You are much better off with the original copy of the DVD, as the deleted scenes on this one are incredibly grainy. It gets 3 stars because the movie is funny.
