Blow
23 October 2016 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Kid Cannabis is loosely based on the true tale of Nate Norman (Jonathan Daniel Brown) as a chubby high school dropout and pizza delivery boy who with his best stoner buddy Topher (Kenny Wormald) and gang of potheads started a marijuana smuggling operation from Canada, cock a snook to an arrogant rival and soon build a multi million dollar business which leads to debauchery and partying too hard.

Like an even more nerdy version of Blow with ineptness such as the boys getting searched each time they try to get into Canada or getting lost as they try to trek through the woods to get back over the border with their illicit goods.

Things get darker as the excesses take their toll, the police home in on them and the loyalties of the gang are tested.

This is a low budget film which works better as a dark comedy with notable supporting performances by Ron Perlman and John C McGinley. It is just too convenient that they find an extraordinary weed grower in Canada and a special buyer in the USA.
