Movie Info

The stoner road movie Rolling Kansas is the writing and directing debut of actor Thomas Haden Church (Lowell from NBC's Wings). The story concerns the Murphy brothers: Gas station attendant and local pot dealer Dave (Jay Paulson), paraplegic student Dink (Sam Huntington), and recently divorced Dick (James Roday). Just when Dick is about to lose his T-shirt-selling business in Texas, the brothers find a treasure map leading to special forest of marijuana in Kansas. Left to them by their late hippie parents, a plentiful supply to sell could answer their various financial problems. This sends the three brothers on a road trip in a junky car, accompanied by Dave's upbeat co-worker, Kevin (Charlie Finn), and Dink's useful roommate, Hunter (Ryan McDow). Rip Torn makes a cameo as a horticulturist while Church appears as a cop and a DEA agent (along with comedian Kevin Pollak). Rolling Kansas premiered at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival.more

A lame-brained, pot-smoking comedy that's genial, good-natured and more than a bit funny.

The characters are magic. The dialogue, twisted and insane and perfect. The timing, fabulous. But then the storyline kicks in and, sadly, everything goes to hell. Well, maybe not hell... but a place very warm. And red. And Satan is there. Okay, it's hell.

Audience Reviews for Rolling Kansas


if you've heard this is just a stoner movie...give it a chance. it's very much about friendship as well.

it's just a damn good movie. the shitty tools, the shitty car, and the shitty plan all come together to form a movie with plenty of pot jokes. waht more do you need

Jimmy Fulwiler

I was disappointed in this movie - it didn't have the humor or content that I had hoped. Where's the lax man?
