Half Baked [WS] [Fully Baked Edition] [DVD] [1998]

So what happens when both David Chappelle and the features-packed DVD format get big? The answer is the Half Baked: Fully Baked Edition DVD, a solid disc whose fine stats end up a bit on the bland side when all is said and done. To its credit, it does feature director Tamra Davis doing an audio commentary, plus ten minutes of deleted scenes and an alternate ending, but from the smoking and non-smoking menus to the downright lame attempts at pot humor in the created-for-the-DVD extras, it all just gets to be a little too much after you spend too much time with it. Yeah, there's five minutes of "the guy on the couch" footage, but for every tasty deleted scene of a zombie dog puking pot, there's "Granny's Guide to Baking," featuring a crazed Granny going through pun-filled pot recipes (lame). There's something to be said about taking the good with the bad, but with junk like the "Different Types of Smokers" flash-like animation stinking things up this bad, it's hard to have a good taste in your mouth after laboriously making your way through the disc. Of course, the disc features a 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer along with a 5.1 Dolby Digital audio track, so it still works well purely on that kind of level. Chappelle fans will no doubt eat this up -- especially given the pushed back release date of the Chappelle's Show: Season Two DVD -- giving this product a good rack life a few months before everyone buys up the next set of the funnyman's hilarious hijinks.

Synopsis

Half Baked
Returning from a food run, kindly kindergarten teacher Kenny (Harland Williams) makes the mistake of feeding a massive amount of junk food to a tired-looking, diabetic NYPD horse, which drops dead. Tossed in jail, Kenny relies on his totally stoned roommates (Dave Chappelle, Guillermo Diaz, Jim Breuer) to devise a way to raise the 100,000-dollar bail. Their solution? Sell marijuana stolen from a government research lab. Cameos in this comedy include Stephen Wright, Janeane Garofalo, Stephen Baldwin, Snoop Doggy Dogg, Willie Nelson, and Jon Stewart. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
