“For those who prefer their stoner comedies with a less bloodthirsty temperament comes the absurdist romp…smart to keep the stakes low and the cast small. Movies like this live or die on their hangout factor, and the jangled chemistry among this foursome is just amiable (and unpredictable) enough to work. The film really grew on me. “
“With the evolution of marijuana legalization, and the continued hilarity of people getting high, the time has come for a new age stoner comedy. The film is basically a four person comedy, having to do with an uncollected debt and Stockholm syndrome.”
“So laugh-out-loud funny that someone needs to give writer-director Josh Hyde a big budget already, because his grasp of both comic dialogue and situational humor is standout… It’s incredibly easy to take the premise and script, mentally tweak and expand it a little, and stock it with Seth Rogen, Ed Helms, and two more Hollywood funny people, for a solid, checks-all-the-boxes Hollywood hit comedy.”
