Dope film, literally!
If you are one for a raunchy, goofy comedic adventure then this film will sit with you very well. With that being said, this isn't a movie striving to be nominated for an academy award in any sense of the term and therefore it shouldn't be treated that way, rather it's perfect if you are in the mood for many late night laughs with your buddies, toked up or sober. The blend of the personalities behind Trent and Joey drive the movies comedic value considering the fact that they're polar opposites for the most part, but at times are the same person making the audience love their bond that much more. Both Shannon Brown and Simon Rex do a great job of fulfilling their individual roles. I've seen Brown play some pretty intense roles in the past, this role was quite the departure from those, but he was still great carrying the lead role, Trent. The other lead, Simon Rex, played a character that he's probably used to playing, although probably not a stretch for him, he still absolutely delivered a strong performance. Most of the supporting cast is good, a nice balance of witty and sane characters throughout the plot. Lloyd, played by Robert Craighead, really stood out from all the other supporting players, he was a riot. The plot is kind of hard to follow during the first part of the movie, but as the film nears its ending it gradually clears up more and more which is one of my few and minor complaints about this film as a comedy. Overall, the film does a great job of doing what I believe it aimed to accomplish.
