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.

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.

While I enjoyed this a lot, especially the shorts, this isn't quite top of the list for the guys. It's definitely worth owning, but some like The Guy From Harlem or Santa and the Ice Cream Bunny should probably come first.

I laughed through the whole thing. The short films before the movie are funny, too, especially the one about "grasses." It's a strange arts-and-crafts film. I even like the silly song, "Reefer Boy." Of course, the worst possible consequences of smoking pot happen to the people in this movie.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is something new to me. But it is fun. It is a movie, a bad one with a couple of guys riffing it. If you do not know what that is, well you know how when you watch a bad movie with your friends and you make fun of it through out the movie... well there you go. That is what a riff is. They say funny things about the mistakes in the movie, and bad acting and whatever else they find that is funny.

I own all the regular Rifftrax DVDs, including the black and white version of this one.

Previous to this DVD purchase, I had bought the live version of "House on Haunted Hill" and was pleasantly surprised to find out that over half of the riffing was brand new, and extremely funny.

This live version of Reefer Madness, however, has VERY LITTLE new riffs. Probably a good 90% is word for word the same as the earlier DVD. That said, it is still funny, and you get three excellent shorts (my wife and I laughed super hard at the short about grass) so if you don't have any version of Reefer Madness, its a good time.

If you DO have the earlier DVD, however, be aware that most of the movie will sound exaclty the same with the only new content being the three shorts.

I didn't pay much for my copy, so I wasn't too disappointed, but had I known it'd be exactly the same jokes, I probably wouldn't have bought it at all, and just watched the shorts on hulu.
