Grass (2000)

GRASS, man, is a pokey, stock footage-silly documentary about mari-
juana and the wacky weed's role in a near-century's worth of drug 
wars.  It's also the cinematic equivalent of a PowerPoint presenta-
tion, dig?, with countless pauses, zero momentum, and what's gotta 
be ten-or-more minutes of title cards.  Man.  Director dude Ron 
Wells, whether intentional or otherwise, practically ends up emulat-
ing the comic lethargy of the same educational films he excepts.  
Ergo and despite the wide variety of inter-cut footage-- would you 
believe clips of Cab Calloway, Gene Krupa, and... Sonny Bono?-- the 
movie moves like, well, someone stoned.  I toked for forty or fifty 
minutes until my *companion* asked if we could leave.  Er, blow the 
joint.  See it for medicinal purposes only.  Fifth Stooge Hemp, AKA 
Woody Harrelson, narrates.  (Rated "R"/80 min)
