Trivia

Neve Campbell was, at the time, one of the most recognizable actresses in the film, despite the fact that her role was relatively small. While the production wanted to be able to give her a bigger part, it was decided that it would be unwise to do so, since the two biggest female leads both were romantically involved with Christian Campbell's character. Christian is Neve Campbell's brother. See more »

Best Musical..uh, Comedy...um,Satire...ALL.! - I've Seen in Years!
15 May 2005 | by disbarroSee all my reviews

I'm SO used to being disappointed by underwritten roles, songs, plot & dialogue, phoned-in performances, etc., in most of what I see in films and T.V. lately... but THIS is SUBLIME! Though it's hilarious and campy, the lyrics are witty and demand intelligence, and the music's terrific, as is every single performance. But there just isn't any actor or aspect of the show to single out as brilliant; every moment of Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical is no less than perfect! My husband, my friends and I haven't been able to stop watching it (it was on Showtime On Demand 'til Saturday), nor can we get the songs out of our heads.... Surely Showtime is going to rerun this on DVD, and (PLEASE!) release it on DVD A.S.A.P. Do yourself a favor and catch it.(And no, I'm in no way affiliated... just a film "buff"!)
