Doug Benson is hilarious in “Super High Me”
OK, so by now we all know that Doug Benson smokes weed. I mean, the man created The Marijuana-Logues. Benson is an expert at crafting jokes for the weed smoking community, and has taken this talent to the big screen. In Super High Me, Doug Benson sets out to discover what effects marijuana have on his stand-up career, his mind, and his body.
Based on a concept similar to Morgan Spurlock’s “Super Size Me”, Doug Benson documents his experience of abstaining from weed for 30 days, and then consuming massive amounts for 30 days. Since Doug is already a stoner, the 30 days of sobriety are just as funny as his 30 days of being baked.
Super High Me is just as much about stand-up comedy as it is about weed. The film has some excellent cameos from the LA comedy scene. Comedians Jimmy Dore, Sarah Silverman, Dana Gould, Zach Galifianakis, Bob Odenkirk, Patton Oswalt and tons of others discuss their views on marijuana, and one of them even smokes it on camera.
People that don’t enjoy smoking reefer will enjoy this movie as well. “Super High Me” examines California’s system of medical marijuana use and adds a much needed layer of seriousness that keeps the movie from being just a bunch of dumb stoner moments.
