Bumt-out drug spoof
fails to reignite genre
BAJKfell from page 9
Baked” never can get beyond that
level of comedy. N
The direction is typical of
Davis’ films (which include “CB4”
and “Billy Madison”), focusing
mostly on the comic talent of the
cast and staying out of its way.
And while this approach works
well with Williams and Chappelle,
who were both outstanding stand
up comics before this film was
made, the rest of the. cast and the
film seem to suffer for it.
When neither Williams or
Chappelle are present to make the
film worthwhile, “Half Baked”
slips into tired stereotypes and
even more tired jokes.
Overall, “Half Baked” stands
as an example of how great comic
actors can try to carry a poorly
conceived film, but rarely succeed.

Five Words: Drag comedy tali to
As for the film’s attempt to
breathe new life into the “reefer
film” genre, it’s unlikely that “Half
Baked” will spawn any imitators.
In all likelihood, it rather will be
remembered as a less-than-spec
tacular cult film.
In short, “reefer film” fbhs
should save their money - if they
have any left - and rent a Cheech
and Chong film instead.
