Half Baked is a comedy film that was released in 1998. Thurgood Jenkins (Dave Chappelle), Kenny Davis (Harland Williams), Scarface (Guillermo Diaz), and Brian (Jim Breur) are best friends and roommates that are happy spending their days slacking and smoking as much marijuana as they can. One night, Kenny goes to a local store to get munchies for them all and accidentally kills a diabetic police horse named Buttercup when he feeds it all the junk food he bought. He's arrested and sent to jail with his bail set at a million dollars. His friends try to figure out how they're going to raise the money, and finally decide to break into the research facility that Thurgood works at as a janitor and steal the marijuana they keep there, with the intention of selling it to make Kenny's bail. It starts off well, but then Thurgood meets anti-drug beauty Mary Jane (Rachel True) and their "business" comes to the attention of local drug lord Samson Simpson (Clarence Williams III). The film features a number of cameos from celebrities like Tommy Chong, Willie Nelson, Jeaneane Garofalo, Bob Saget, Tracy Morgan, Stephen Baldwin, Snoop Dogg, Jon Stewart, and Steven Wright.

    Sitting on your couch watching these morons sit on their couch and get wasted is like being the only straight guest at a pot party. Everyone else is laughing, and you're left wonde...

    A couple of hash brownies short of a satisfying cinematic picnic, with far too few comic highs during the bigscreen reefer party.

    A limp, predictable less-than-sitcom of a movie. It's a bomb, man, not the bomb.

    Here you have one of Chappelle's earlier works, not Home Improvement old but still in the 90's. This is a great movie to watch, it will make you laugh and is doesn't take itself seriously at all. It borders on slapstick and you can see the seeds of the Chappelle show in this. If you enjoy movies like Grandma's Boy or Knocked Up then this will be up your alley. Don't miss out on this if you haven't seen it yet. Unless weed smoking offends you that is.moreless
