Critic Reviews for Half Baked
So funny! "But I'm Cuban, B." "YES, Cuban B!"
As far as pot comedies go, it's got just enough laughs to warrant a visit.
Winningly stupid comedy, with the emphasis on stupid.
Audience Reviews for Half Baked
Stupid comedy but done well. I laugh at this movie all the time.
A celebrated but ultimately really overrated cult hit concerning a few stoners sleazing away in New York City, and how one of them (Harland Williams) is put in jail on trumped up charges, and how his buddies (Dave Chappelle, Jim Breuer, Guillermo Diaz) decide it is up to them to raise the money through dealing to bail him out. Meanwhile, Thurgood (Chappelle) meets a woman and struggles to keep her from finding out that he smokes a lot. It starts out likable and entertaining but ultimately becomes super predictable while only supplying a couple laughs here and there. In the end, it really is not worth your time, although you do see signs of Chappelle's genius from a young age, but this should have been maybe an extended SNL skit and that's about it, not an hour and a half movie.
An inconsistent comedy written by the greatest stand-up comedian of all time, Dave Chappelle. At times, it's hilarious -- at others, not really. But in the end, this is a self-deprecating comedy with a plotline that only a person strung out on weed could come up with. I'm a huge fan of Chappelle though so I caught a lot of his style of comedy within the mess. I had a good time; it's just not well made or directed. Could've been better.
