    San Francisco Chronicle

    But their comic talents are completely wasted by an inane script whose idea of humor is to make jokes about lung cancer and the notorious Tuskegee experiment on black men with syphilis. [20 Jan 1998] show more

    Paying homage to drug comedies of the '70s, Half Baked is high on getting high and low on laughs. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    The plot is simply an excuse for a string of good-natured dope jokes (come on -- you have to love that their hookah is called Billy Bong Thornton) and goofy sight gags inspired by everything from Jerry Garcia to Jerry Maguire, most of which are undoubtedly funniest if you're eight miles high. show more

    Russell Smith Austin Chronicle

    The humor in this movie is basically anthropological notes on doper culture and behavior: junk-food frenzies, smoking rituals and hardware, non sequitur conversation, and short-term memory loss. In other words, stuff that passed into the realm of cliché back in the time of the Johnson administration. show more

    Nathan Rabin The A.V. Club

    The main problem, however, is Tamra Davis' leaden direction, which prevents Half-Baked from developing comic momentum. There are a few scattered laughs. show more

    A couple of hash brownies short of a satisfying cinematic picnic, with far too few comic highs during the bigscreen reefer party. show more
