It seems to be a relatively new trend with youtube to post full movies now. I’ve seen them doing this with random movies and a lot of classics. Not so much with new ones, but that makes sense. Since there are so many films that are posted on youtube. I figured we could start a Film Friday section. We will post movies, mostly marijuana movies, on Friday for you enjoyment. I will be posting movies I have seen and haven’t.
Bongwater will be our first installment. I have never seen it but will be. It seems to have a ton of great actors and sounds like a great stoner movie. Below is a little about the movie. Enjoy!
Bongwater is a 1997 comedy film, based on the book of the same name, set in Portland, Oregon, and stars Luke Wilson, Alicia Witt, Amy Locane, Brittany Murphy, Jack Black, and Andy Dick. Lael Loewenstein, film critic for Variety magazine, gave the film a mixed review and wrote, “The latest entry in the growing field of indie youth ensemble films, Bongwater is an uneven, intermittently likable movie about a group of Portland residents for whom getting high is a way of life. While its fresh-faced but largely unknown cast members frequently rise above the material, pic isn’t distinctive enough to suggest it will yield more than a limited run in specialized markets.”
