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!
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.Read more ›
1. Funyuns...yeah! (actually that whole spiel is classic!!!)
2. I need a backi-otimy
3. Butter nuts
4. I got more booty <---- singing
5. No more window love
I don't smoke weed and my kids tell me they don't, but when we are together and in the mood for crazy comedy, this is the go-to movie we watch. It just doesn't get old.
