absolutely pointless
15 August 2015 | by partymouse-48811See all my reviews

Most documentaries have a point or message that they are trying to get across to the viewer. This "film" doesn't do that at all. Basically this is just an 80 min home movie from a comedian who got high and went to comic con. If you smoke weed it may be mildly entertaining on a "whoa dude, he's so high!" sort of level, but beyond that it's just a waste of time. Doug Benson is slowly becoming a testament to why real actors and comedians don't actually smoke weed on camera or show up blazed as hell to public appearances. It's because weed doesn't make you as funny or clever as you think you are.

Maybe try actually writing a script next time and stop trying to pass off a failed reality show pilot as a documentary.
