Strangely enough, I didn't see this high, but I might as well have ebacuse I seem to have liked this one a whole lot more than everyone else. Something about Crispin glover at the beginning angrily chucking luggage off of their cart with one arm then asking for a tip had me howling. Actually thought it was the better than The Hangover, but I'm high as balls right now. I'm always high. ALWAYS. – UK

Subject: Maybe it Will Actually Be Funny....?

Who might be worth a few laughs. There is no doubt that college guys and other random stoners will love the crazy humor and stuff that always is served up in these kinds of entertainment. Hopefully, it will be worth watching as a DVD rental...because that is where it will end up. Apparently, some big named stars needed some spare pocket change so they accepted roles in this silly feature. Good for them....and I hope everyone who watched it totally has fun. Bring it on.
