Please Don't Watch This Movie

Let me begin by stating that, despite the suggestions of the poorly animated talking blunt in the beginning of the movie (no, seriously), I was not high when I watched Mac and Devin Go to High School. Unfortunately, you would have to be stoned out of your mind to find anything in this movie even remotely funny, and so I sat through the most grueling and painful movie experience I've ever had the extreme displeasure to be subjected to.

In plain terms, there is a very real possibility that this is the single worst movie ever made.

But hey- I haven't seen every movie ever. There is a (small) chance someone managed to make something worse. I just doubt it. Every aspect is just so... stupid. The jokes would be funnier if you tried to make stupid jokes. The music is a sad attempt at a washed-up, has-been rapper to remain relevant.

But by far the worst thing is the plot. Presumably, Snoop and Wiz payed a small fortune to a group of preteen boys who just discovered weed, curse words, and girls (in the same ten-minute span) to write the first draft, forced at gunpoint a single homeless man strung out on crack to edit it, and then gave it back to the preteens for the final script.

Yes, this movie was low budget. But why? Could Snoop Dog, easily one of the most successful rappers of all time, not get a real producer? Hire someone with a tiny sliver of talent to do the effects? Hire an actor who could actually act? No. Because no self-respecting person would have anything to do with this movie. In an industry that would buy almost any script, no one would invest a nickel in this movie. It would be so much easier to just tie their career to a post and shoot it.

If you like extremely stupid pot jokes, incredible headaches, vast stretches of mind-numbing boredom, and watching a 40-year-old man pretending to be a high school-er, knock yourself out. Also, please get out of the gene pool before you manage to make humanity even worse.

But if you have even a tiny shred of self respect and/or an IQ over 7, please, just walk away. If you really, really just want to watch a terrible movie, go watch The Room. At least The Room is so awful it's funny.

Disappointment

I normally don't write reviews, but I felt compelled to write one after being highly disappointed with the outcome of this movie. Being originally from Pittsburgh, I was exposed to Wiz Khalifa when he was just an underground mix tape artist. The moment I heard him and Snoop were doing a movie, I was dying to see what type of film they would put together. I knew it wasn't going to be a Oscar nominee, but I was excited to see it for what it was, a stoner movie. I anticipated it to be a movie like How High mixed with a little bit of Superbad. The movie starts out with a cartoon clip of this character slow burn who at first seems like a good addition to the movie. He tells you to smoke some weed before the movie because, well lets face it, you cannot watch this movie sober (it's that bad). At various points, slow burn stops the movie to say some irrelevant things that seems like they are just there to fill up some space. It really bothered me, it is like when you are trying to watch a movie and someone keeps trying to talk to you, it really messed with the flow of the story (if you can even call it a story). Also, the movie was stopped multiple times for Mac and Devin to preform full length songs, which also seems like it was there to just fill up space. It would have been less irritating if the videos were placed at the end of the movie or added into the special features. The movie didn't have a smooth flow or an actual plot line. The story was a recycled script that was generic and vanilla. I know it's a movie, but it still has to be some what realistic. I couldn't take Snoop seriously as a 15 year senior, it just wasn't logical. I laughed a few times, but only because of the stony persona they both have and because I'm a long time fan of both the artists (also i was a little spacey). The movie was pushed back multiple times and it seems like they knew it was going to be bad, but they just hyped it up so that people would buy it. I wouldn't consider it a movie. Maybe if they posted it on YouTube or made it for TV then I would not have been as upset with it. Thank God I torrented it and didn't pay actual money for it. At the end of it, I was scratching my head thinking....how in the world did this movie get made? This is coming from a fan, I wanted to like the movie, but I just could NOT enjoy itÂ….that's saying something. It seemed short and the ending didn't feel like a real ending. I don't care if it was low budget, that is no excuse. Wiz and Snoop should stick to what they know best, making music and smoking weed. Films are definitely not their thing. The soundtrack is great though!

A Huge Cloud of Fart Flavored Pot Smoke

I am a fan of both Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa. So when I heard that they were collaborating to make a stoner comedy I was excited. But unfortunately (in my opinion) this is one of the worst movies I have ever seen. Here's some reasons why I think this.

The first problem is at the beginning of the movie, when we're introduced to "Slow Burn". A poorly animated cartoon joint that, really, looks like a white banana. Slow Burn delivers some of the dumbest and unfunny dialogue I've ever heard. Slow Burn then proceeds to tell us that we have to get high to enjoy this movie. Now, it's no lie that weed makes some terrible movies more enjoyable. But relying on the intoxication of your audience for a films enjoyment is pathetic.

The next issue came when I began to uncover what the overall plot was. A cool kid helps a nerdy kid become cool. This story has been reused 1000 times over. When put into the right hands, this plot could possibly become effective, but usually this is not the case.

Now I could be wrong about this, but, while watching, it seemed that the overall point of the movie was to sell music. When you make a movie specifically to sell something or some things ("Jack and Jill") it will usually not turn out well. Especially when it's obvious.

I could go in depth about how bad the acting was or how flat the jokes fell, but I'm not trying to write a book. Which is sad because this is a movie that I've been anticipating as a fan of Wiz and Snoop, and a fan of stoner comedies. But good stoner comedies have good characters that you like and care for. I could care less if Mac & Devin don't graduate (or for that matter DIE).
