"(...)Half Baked is Dave Chappelle's coming out party. This movie is friggin' hilarious. Based around 4 pothead buddies, one of which (Kenny aka Harland Williams) gets thrown in jail for killing a horse leaving Chappelle, Jim Breuer and Guillermo Diaz having to come up with 100 large to free their buddy. So how else would three stoners get the kind of money they need to free their friend? "Let's sell weed yo!" So Chappelle, Diaz and Breuer become "fundraisers" not drug dealers to get their friend away from the "naughty, naughty jungle of love". There are so many funny lines from this movie that I cannot even recall them all but definitely one of the best scenes is when Chappelle dresses up as Mr. Nice Guy and goes to see Sampson. "What part of Jamaica are you from?" Chappelle answers "Right near the beeeech...lord have mercy". Half Baked is pee your pants funny and without a doubt worth owning on dvd. It is one of the funniest movies of the past 15 years. Highest Recommendation. P.S. "Yo they were doin' karate man, they had nun-chucks, they be doin' indian burns man, i'm serious". Enjoy!"

"I'm a huge fan of half baked as I'm sure most people are. Hoping to receive more hilarious footage and outtakes of everyones favorite stoners I found myself buying the new edition of this dvd. How could you miss with a list of added features such as..
Five Minutes with the "The Guy on the Couch"
Different Types of Smokers
Granny's Guide to Bakin'
Well they missed big time. The guy on the couch.. some imitation rolling around for five minutes with a pillow covering his face as he rolled of the couch. Lame! Types of smokers.. animated and not even amusing. Granny's baking someone throwing a bunch of things in a pot like a cooking show. The whole thing was poorly produced. The only additional footage was things that they edited out of the film. ie originally they had Kenny calling Thurgood to do the whole scene in the movie where they visited him and tell him how they are going to get him out.
This is a pitiful attempt to turn a buck off of Half Baked's fan base. I want my money back."

"This version is basically complete garbage as Dave Chappelle & Neal Brennan had absolutely nothing to do with its release. The extras are worthless. Who honestly gives a damn about Granny's recipes (something that wasn't mentioned in the movie), or 5 minutes with a fat guy sleeping on a couch that isn't Steven Wright. The extras & the Extras on The Jerk DVD that was released around the same time, are a complete embarrassment. Paramount should learn to give fans what they want, not make up new extra's with 0 context to the movie they are appearing on. This is as bad as the first season of Viva La Bam (which was censored, even though the packing said it was uncensored). You are much better off with the original copy of the DVD, as the deleted scenes on this one are incredibly grainy. It gets 3 stars because the movie is funny."
