Now surprisingly, this is not about the weather phenomenon that is defined as being a warm, moisture front from Hawaii and extending up and down the Pacific coast. So for my meteorologist readers will need to go somewhere else to read about weather fronts. I am talking about the old, go to sub-genre of film called the “bud”dy action comedy. I emphasized bud since this is a stoner comedy brought to you by the Apatow crew and their penchant for bringing back the coveted R rated comedy genre. It’s kind of refreshing to watch R comedies, especially when they dabble in the absurd and over the top reverence they have for the medium. I realize that I am dressing up a film in which the protagonists smoke copious amounts of weed and get into gun fights, but it is really a loving ode to comedy films and the action genre by taking them just one step beyond ridiculous, while maintaining self awareness.
Also stoner comedies are just fucking hilarious.
