I'm from an era of great smoker movies: the Friday series, How High,Harold and Kumar, Half Baked etc. It's been years watching a stonermovie, so this film came as a big surprise for me.
I'm a big fan of Russel Peters' stand up acts and I love Faizon Lovemovies, both are well established comedians on their own. Combiningthese 2 comedians with weed makes a good formula for a good time!
Of course it isn't as good as the movies I mentioned before, but whocares. Watch it without expectation, you'll be surprised how amusing itis and I wasn't even high myself watching it.
It's an alright entertaining flick, don't get too difficult about plotsand characters, it's not the point in this film.

Never sure if that's a good thing. Like is that something thatcomedians Russel Peters and Fazion Love, who star in this film, wouldwant me to say about their stoner flick? I'm going to assume yesbecause it shows I had fun watching the movie, cause I did.
It's a great stoner premise. Two teen pot heads in the mid-80s gettheir hands on some supposedly Area 51 chronic that has them snoozingfor 30 years.
So you have a lot of jokes about how different life is in 1986 vs 2016.I got the jokes but they were not that funny (With the exception of thevisual gag of seeing Peters and Love wearing clothes the teens wore inthe 80s, which is more of a getting older joke than an out of timejoke).
It was entertaining watching Love's character adapt to the Internetmostly because somehow Love was able to make the adaption seem naturalfor an out of time man who was mildly interested in this newtechnology, while other jokes about the 30-year gap seemed forced.
The real funny parts was the plot of these two stoners trying to starta business selling chili and pot. Reminded me of DJ Pooh's movie BurnHouse, it's just funny watching two stoners trying to be productive.
Then there's the MILF Alex Meneses. I can't recall ever seeing thiswoman in anything else but she's hot and I would like to see her insomething else.
It's no Pineapple Express or Cheech and Chong but only stoners couldwake up after a 30-year slumber and get back into their grove soeasily. I did laugh or rather I giggled and I had fun and that's whatit's all about

It wasn't that bad nor that good, especially that Russell peters actsin it and I am not fond of him, it was good to watch it to spend myboring hours but other than that it wasn't that wow, low quality, lowbudget movie. Lack of actual comedy, usual ending , no plot, nosuspense, everything was easy to expect.
Comedy that tells the story of two free spirited stoners who, after smoking some top secret pot created by the CIA in 1986, find themselves catapulted into 2016. With 30 years of their lives lost, our now balding and overweight friends use their uncomplicated enthusiasm to get their lives back on track and to figure out the modern world.
