Hi everybody! We hope everyone is staying safe and locked up in their homes watching movies and listening to podcasts. Today Mysterious Mike Talent and Matt Hinshaw review a classic film from their high school days, The Stoned Age. Bonus topics include ex girlfriends, baseball coming back, and coming of age films.
The Stoned Age is a fun comedic story about a pair of high school buddies cursing town in the blue torpedo looking to party and find some chicks. There have been some incredible coming of age movies since this film came out but The Stoned Age was a pioneer with Dazed and Confused for the genre in the mid 90’s. The plot is fun and takes a couple of wild turns especially when the floating eyeball is introduced. The acting is decent. It is rough at times but a lot of these actors were very young and early in their careers so you have to cut them some slack. It is not really a stoner comedy, The Stoned Age is more about getting into trouble on a Saturday night by friends, cops, and parents. To put it lightly it is not a politically correct film and probably would not be made today. Is this a must see film, probably not. It is a fun romp and a perfect film to revisit for your hosts during our current home lock downs. It is worth a watch if you are having a few drinks late at night trying to avoid the news. Mike and Matt both agree this movie is probably pulling a lot of nostalgia for their ratings. They both award the film 3 out of 5 Reels.
