Quotes

Teddy: [both are stoned after smoking a bong at Teddy's home] Are you high?
Jack Melon: Am I who?
[both laugh]
Jack Melon: Hey man, look at that tree, all bent and twisted. It looks like Old Man Eber.
Teddy: Old man who?
Jack Melon: Old Man Eber. I walked past that tree hundreds of times and never saw him. How come I never noticed?
Teddy: 'Cause grass helps you see things clearer.
Jack Melon: I thought it was supposed to cloud things up.
Teddy: Just the opposite. You see things for less of what you want them to be and more for what they really are.

Laughable after school special, everybody lets get Stoned!!
27 January 2005 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Stoned (1980) was one of those heavy handed after school specials that A.B.C. used to show back in the day. I remembered watching this one, Scott Baio and his brother getting high and acting stupid. Then tragedy strikes forcing Scott to straighten up and get his marijuana monkey off of his munchie eating back.

I wasn't surprised to find out that the wannabe cool director John Herzfeld was behind this film. He's heavy handed and preachy. You'll find him producing variations of this film later on in his career. He should have stuck to making films like these. At least this one was highly entertaining. I enjoyed watch Scott Baio getting STONED.

Recommended for a few chuckles. But I wouldn't go out of my way to watch this film.
