Some of the best stoner movies don't have anything at all to do with the green so many of us focus on so intently. This film ticks some of the crucial boxes for a satisfying MMN.
1) Plot is entirely inconsequential to enjoying the film.
2) The perverse satisfaction that this is a kid's film.
3) Visually stimulating to the point of potential seizure.
4) There is a monkey in it.
5) If you like girls, Christina Ricci is in it.
5) If you like boys, Emile Hirsch is in it.
6) If you like bondage fashion and someone who will beat the shit out of you, Matthew Fox is in it. So if you are staying in because you want to or are just plan broke (like me), go Speed Racer, go!
