Review Ah, marijuana. Is there anything funnier? If your answer is either "No" or "What was the question?" then Doug Benson is the comedian for you. His pot documentary Super High Me follows his efforts to abstain from ganja for a month, followed by 30 days of nonstop highness, all in the interest of seeing what impact weed has on him. It's science!...This isn't a groundbreaking doc like its namesake, Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me, was. Perhaps it's fitting, given the subject matter, that Super High Me is low-key, light on statistics, and heavy on comedy...The film's comedy, both in Benson's act and in his daily life, relies heavily on one's appreciation for (or tolerance of) pot humor. Personally, I get tired of comedians whose acts are almost exclusively on one subject: black comics who talk mainly about the differences between black people and white people; fat comics who talk about being fat; pot comics who only make jokes relating to the stoner lifestyle. They may be very funny performers, but a little of that goes a long way, I think...All of which is a roundabout way of saying that Super High Me is a niche documentary. It avoids any universal or thought-provoking issues, which limits whatever general appeal it might have had. And that's fine, of course. Just don't smoke this particular joint unless you're already familiar with the buzz.

Brian C. Gibson, Film School Rejects ...hilarious. The film is filled with cameos from other comedians, and the overal tone of the film is very light and funny.
