Henry tries to cook with pot by adding buds to a soup. Cooking in this way would make you sick, not high. The THC has to be extracted from the weed (usually by simmering in butter then cooled, which can then be used to cook with). The way Henry uses it, the THC would cook away, and then remaining plant material would be bitter enough to make him sick. See more »
I've read in a book once that 67% of people die when nobody's looking. What I never could find out... is how many people lived while nobody's watching. But I guess they just don't print shit like that.

In short, I liked this movie a lot; it made me laugh and cry, though not without a few eye-rolls in between. That being said, I think it deserves more than the 5.5 rating--at least 6.5/7.
I agree in part with both the reviews on here (the 2 star, and the 8 star) in that sure, it was cheesy at times and the writing often struck me as contrived, but the superb acting from our two leads carried the movie to heights it wouldn't have achieved otherwise.
I'm a Sudeikis fan and as usual he delivered a solid performance. I believed and felt what his character was going through--the paralyzing, confused helplessness of loss and subsequent searching for understanding.
Maisie Williams is awesome. I felt like even though Sudeikis got more screen time, Williams was the star here and kept me intrigued throughout. Such a great, authentic actress.
Overall, really enjoyed the movie and would definitely recommend it.
