Half-Baked (movie) Fully Baked Edition (starring Dave Chappelle)
Half Baked (DVD)
Review by Suzanne 2/15/05
This movie was not bad like I expected it to be. It came out in 1998
and they are re-releasing it now with more extras because Dave Chappelle has
become very popular, due to his Comedy Central show. They probably figure
his fans would love this movie, and they would probably be right.
Chappelle co-wrote and stars in this funny little movie about four stoner
friends. It's not as "edgy" as his comedy show, but it has moments that
really make you laugh. I'm sure if you are a pothead, it's even funnier (even if
you aren't stoned while watching it).
I would definitely recommend it to people. It's like one of those Cheech and
Chong reefer movies, or maybe even better. The plot moves along nicely and
the ending is not stupid or weird. These things are important to note
because in many low-budget comedies, you're lucky if they have a half-decent
plot or funny jokes. There are some great cameos by Tommy Chong, John
Stewart, Bob Saget, and others.
The movie has many great extras. Besides the regular deleted scenes and
director's audio commentary, there are some cartoons, an alternate ending, and a
couple of funny skits. This is definitely worth a watch.
