Super High Me

8 09 2008

Super High Me, starring Doug Benson, originally started out as a joke about what it would be like to imitate Morgan Spurlock’s film Super Size Me, but to smoke pot instead of eating McDonald’s. After a film producer saw one his performances and heard the bit, he suggested that they actually make such a movie.

The movie follows Benson as he first quits smoking pot for 30 days, gets medical evaluations, performs live, learns about the fight for medical marijuana, and of course…smokes pot. One of the highlights of the film is the cameos by stars of the underground comedy world such as Bob Odenkirk, Patton Oswalt, and Brian Poesehn. Although their spots are brief, they provide a much needed change of pace throughout the film. But even when Benson is by himself, he remains enjoyable to watch where many other stand-up comedians might be dull after 94 minutes.

Super High Me was released in 2007 and you can buy it or steal it here.
