Ian Douglas: Everyone else seems to be raving about this movie, but I found it very low key as a comedy, unless you think that seeing people pretending to be stoned on dagga is hilarious. The storyline got kinda silly at the end, seems like the writers were struggling to find a politically correct solution to the problem of what to do with all the dope.
