Super High Me Film Review
Super High Me is a 2007 documentary about the comedian Doug Benson, it takes it name and concept from the 2004 documentary Super Size Me. In the film Doug Benson spends 30 days without smoking cannabis and 30 days getting high most of the day.
I thought this film would be a glorification of cannabis and a pro medical marijuana film, but instead it was the story of a sad man with obvious issues who seemed to have a drug problem. There were some token pseudo scientific tests to try and show the difference between no pot and pot, but basically the whole film was clips of Doug Benson smoking joints, and some stand up about cannabis which wasn't particularly funny. It wasn't enlightening and it didn't do much a service to the pro medical marijuana movement, instead it showed the blatant misuse of the laws. The only people who would like this film is people who are stoned or maybe thats the point, I give it 4/10.
