Put This In Your Pipe And Smoke It.

Absolutely hilarious. The pop culture non-sequitors that the great James Franco throws out, almost like he’s whispering, are spot-on. The Seth Rogen character gets a bit tiring, and the ending with the seemingly endless shootout belongs in another movie, but whenever the two bro’s are together, everything clicks. And the ending at the diner has dialogue that is exactly what those characters would say. Exactly. Very funny.

In corrupt Basin City, three men — an honest cop, a tough ex-convict and a man on the run — try to protect the women they love and suffer for it.

Sweet extras on the DVD. All greenscreen edition. Really a cool flick.
