High Times' Potluck
Top Customer Reviews
I bought this DVD (used for 42 cents plus shipping) because I am a huge fan of Theo Kogan and the Lunachicks. I knew Theo was in it before I bought it but I didn't know the Lunachicks are in it as well (briefly). That would be the only reason to watch it. Theo does a good job with her role but there is not a lot to work with. You get to see Theo's tattoos close up (and Squid's tats on her leg.) Squid and Gina have really bit parts. You'll see the Lunachicks in the rehearsal room and "perform" (lipsync at a "reefer rally") part of "Nowhere Fast" from their "Luxury Problem" album with Helen Destroy on drums. There are a few other Lunachicks songs from "Luxury Problem" played in the background of the movie. Sean Pierce, Theo's husband and guitarist/keyboardist for "Theo and the Skyscrapers" and the "Toilet Boys" has a small role as well.
Good cast, weak script. A lot of the mobsters are the same guys who are in the De Niro movie "A Bronx Tale." The problem is that this movie is not funny. There was one or two moments that were almost funny.
The worst thing about this movie is David Peel. Lousy actor, lousy musician, lousy person. I met him at a Beatle convention years ago. This guy is so full of himself. He was practically begging people to let him sign a autograph while they were running away from him. He had this guitar that looked like it was up someone's ass before he picked it out of the garbage. He misplaced it and asked me if I stole it. I would not have touched that guitar with rubber gloves on.Read more ›
I wish I could comment cogently on the content of this movie, but the production values were so egregious and the transfer quality--and this was a movie that went straight to DVD--so poor that I have no idea what the "plot" was. The dialogue is virtually unintelligible because the soundtrack audio is so muddy, the camerawork inept, the lighting unprofessional...I could go on and on, as I believe this movie did, but I will do as I did when viewing it and stop early.
I'm sorry, Jason--and I bet you are too.

OK - maybe I haven't watched this yet, but it was filmed in Berks County, PA - around Kutztown, and my Ex-girlfriend's late father has a bit part in the movie... Read morePublished on January 18, 2006 by MissPennsyltucky
This movie is horrible, the acting is contrived, the plot is looser than a crack (...), and there is enough cliche in this movie to make it an afterschool special. Read morePublished on July 19, 2005 by D. Zombro
For fans of The Lunachicks, this movie features that band along with a lead role by sexy tattoo-covered singer Theo Kogan. Jason Mewes has a VERY SMALL part, so fans be warned! Read morePublished on May 2, 2005 by Tommy
There are some movies that are bad in a funny kind of way. Like the 1980's classic "Flash Gordon," for example. Or the movie "Excalibur" from the same era. Campy bad. Read morePublished on February 13, 2005 by Jefferson T. Packer
