Editorial Reviews

On August 19th, thousands witnessed what can only be described as one of the top two RiffTrax® Live! events of 2010. RiffTrax Live! Reefer Madness was that show, and now you finally have the chance to relive all the laughs, chortles, and fancy headresses on DVD!

In RiffTrax Live! Reefer Madness, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of RiffTrax.com® and Mystery Science Theater 3000®, deliver their trademark form of rapid-fire comedy in front of a live audience! Lines could be flubbed! Tomatoes could be thrown! Mountain lion attacks are entirely possible!

The performance not only includes the classic anti-marijuana propaganda film Reefer Madness, but also three shorts which quickly became instant classics: More Dangerous Than Dynamite, Frozen Frolics, and At Your Fingertips: Grasses. Among the most insane things the guys have ever riffed, they'll clear up any questions you might have about washing your clothes in gasoline and whether corn is grass. RiffTrax Live! Reefer Madness: it s the perfect chance to hear all the jokes that you missed because you were laughing too hard the first time!

Funny stuff here as this material is very bad and just goofy beyond words.
Jonnathan Ritland
Great in Blu Ray--but the shorts are an extra added treat that makes the DVD well worth the purchase--A well deserved 5 star rating!
Deidre Ann
The energy of the live performance and connection with the theater audience more than makes up for a few verbal stumbles.

I saw this show in the theater last year and couldn't wait to get it on DVD. The shorts alone make it worth buying, but then the jokes during the movie were certainly worthwhile as well. The jokes are not simply a repeat of the studio version of Rifftrax Reefer Madness and while I enjoy that DVD quite a bit the live version is just as good or better with lots of new jokes added. As others have pointed out, there are a few flubbed lines, but they are few and far between and it is LIVE comedy, so that is to be expected. If anything, it adds to the humor. The energy of the live performance and connection with the theater audience more than makes up for a few verbal stumbles. I highly recommend this DVD, it is one of my favorites of the Rifftrax Live series so far.

Shorts include:
- More Dangerous Than Dynamite: A 1930's short about the hazards of washing your laundry at home in gasoline. D'uh!
- At Your Fingertips: Grasses: A bizarre arts and crafts short for children from the 1970's. You'll wonder what the makers of this one were thinking when they dreamed it up.
- Frozen Frolics: An odd 1930 cartoon that is not so classic, but it is a bit bizarre. Let's just say it's no Steamboat Willy.

There's also a new introduction on the DVD featuring Mike, Kevin and Bill.

The shorts are so amusingly odd that they kind of make fun of themselves, but Rifftrax certainly does add jokes worth hearing. If you're a MSTie and or a Rifftrax fan you won't want to miss this one. Recommended.

As the post-MST3K world goes, Rifftrax has just been too hit-or-miss for me. I've picked up a few titles (Carnival of Souls is one of my favorite B movies so I HAD to have that one). But seeing they put their live shows out on Blu-ray perked my interest enough to order this. Good thing too, because this has ended up being my favorite of the Rifftrax outings. The best part of the show isn't the feature film...it's the short about grass (as in lawn), which is funny enough without the riffing.

I found the visual presentation to be a bit annoying. The image keeps alternating between the movie itself centered on the screen and the movie off to the left to fit images of the three riffers to the right in Brady windows. I found that to be distracting and unnecessary.

Still, the subject matter is ripe for riffing, and the laughs are frequent.

This may be the best of the live shows IMHO. The shorts nearly stole the show. I'm going to start washing my clothes in gasoline.

Format: DVD
A 1930s movie about (sic) the "Dangers Of Marijuana?" Be a little real, marijuana is about as "dangerous" as Shirley Temple or Tiny Tim. The ONLY "true" way to achieve any sort of "edification" ref "Reefer Madness" is to allow the Riff Trax guys, Mike, Kevin, and Bill, to explain the..."subtile nuances" of this FINE film to you. And the song they've composed which is available between the Riff Trax-enhanced version of (giggle) "Reefer Madness" and the original (yes, they both occupy the same DVD!) film is worth the price of admission, just by itself. MST3K may have gone to that great resting place in the sky where "Fridays," "Alf," "the Monkees," and "Car 54 Where Are You" now abide, but the Riff Trax guys do very well, keeping its spirit alive and quite well.

Somehow I'd managed to miss "Reefer Madness" on the midnight movie circuit, but now I can see the appeal of this movie: it's one of the greatest unintentional comedies ever made. It's absolutely impossible to watch it without laughing.

A wizened prune of a man lectures anyone within earshot about the evils of marijuana, and illustrates his point by recounting the story of a high school dweeb who smokes one joint, and is immediately plunged into a world of addiction, madness, murder and suicide. This is a colorized version -- as if watching this turkey in the original black & white would be any improvement -- and Mike, Bill, and Kevin rip this movie a new one, hilarious even when they flub the occasional line.

The shorts preceding the feature are awesomely bizarre. Animator Rich Kyanka provides two surrealistic films written and narrated by his five-year-old daughter, which are even stranger than the plotless 1930 cartoon, "Frozen Frolics" (remember to pack a seltzer bottle when traveling to the north pole). Oh, and there's an educational short warning you not to wash your clothes in a pan of gasoline in the kitchen. Just so you know.

The Rifftrax boys take on a classic public domain crapper in color as well as a trio of shorts. It makes me miss the old Mystery Science Theater. Definitely one of the better Rifftrax.

Bought this for my son-in-law. He was thrilled to receive it. The Rifftrax guys are creative, funny, original and seem to have a great time doing what they do.

The Rifftrax guys in and of themselves have a cult following, but to have them riffing on Reefer Madness created a brand new cult DVD that will have you in hysterics the entire time! Great in Blu Ray--but the shorts are an extra added treat that makes the DVD well worth the purchase--A well deserved 5 star rating!
