“Get some sour cream and onion chips with some dip, man, some beef jerky, some peanut butter. Get some Häagen-Dazs ice cream bars, a whole lot, make sure chocolate, gotta have chocolate, man. Some popcorn, red popcorn, graham crackers, graham crackers with marshmallows, the little marshmallows and little chocolate bars and we can make s’mores, man. Also, celery, grape jelly, Cap’n Crunch with the little Crunch berries, pizzas. We need two big pizzas, man, everything on ’em, with water, whole lotta water, and Funyons.”
This weekends Live for Films Film Club choice is the classic stoner comedy, Half-Baked. If you haven’t seen it yet, get hold of a copy and prepare for hilarity and a MacGyver smoker. You’ll never look at the back of a dollar bill in the same way.
After Kenny accidentaly kills a cop’s diabetic horse by feeding it the food he purchased from a munchie run, he is put in jail and is given a 1 million dollar bail. The rest of the group must bail Kenny out before Nasty Nate gets to him. The group decides to sell marijuana that Thurgood gets through his job as a janitor at a pharmaceutical lab. They become pals with rap star Sir Smoke-A-Lot and the rivals of dealer Samson Simpson. On the side, Thurgood seeks the love of Mary Jane, an anti-pot daughter of a dealer. What follows is typical pothead behaviour with a ton of cameos. Look carefully.
The 1998 film is directed by Tamra Davis. It stars Dave Chappelle, Rachel True, Jim Breuer, Guillermo Díaz, Harland Williams, Tommy Chong, Willie Nelson, Jon Stewart, Stephen Baldwin, Tracy Morgan, Snoop Dogg, Janeane Garofalo and Bob Saget and more.
