ORIGINAL TITLE:
Super High Me
USA / 2007 / 90 min

Dude, where's my... uh...

Inspired by the success of Morgan Spurlock's SUPER SIZE ME (2004), stand-up comedian Doug Benson and director Michael Blieden decided to do for marihuana what Spurlock did for McDonald's. Using himself and his body as a laboratory, marihuana-enthusiast Benson shows us some of the effects that rigorous pot-smoking can have on the human mind and body. SUPER HIGH ME is not an attempt at serious journalism, rather it is a subjective and suprisingly nuanced look at one of the great American pastimes.
