Movie Info

Shot with a team of nonprofessional actors, Cevin Soling's frenzied collection of comedic "bits" makes a joke out of the "War on Drugs." The politically incorrect lineup of off-the-wall skits includes "Dr. Science" (a children's television show that teaches kids how to make LSD), "Satan's Stepchildren" (a compilation of black-and-white movie clips with overdubbed dialogue) and "Frogman Versus Welder" (a parody of European art films).

The War on the War on Drugs is a lively and well-executed satire that sweetens its occasional truths with rebellious humor.

Generally witless ode to illegal substances.

The War on the War on Drugs strings together 60 amateurish short films to tell us drugs are cool, man.

Like so much drug-related humor, it's best suited for viewers who happen to be really, really wasted.

Ineptitude is so thorough here that War on . . . could only make sense as a sinister governmental smear campaign to justify the war on drugs and total sobriety.

This sly guerilla documentary takes pot shots, pun intended, at both the absurdities and victim injustices inherent in the US government's longstanding campaign against lighting up.

The film becomes repetitive and dull.

Drugs can be a catalyst to all kinds of creativity... and they can hamper it, too. Unfortunately, that seems to be the case here.

Like so much dope humor, Soling's logic is fuzzy, and you'd have to be pretty high to find any of it funny.
