The Greatest Movie Ever Rolled

Doug Benson is more than just a comedian, he’s a film maker and noted pot smoker. We have always loved his comedy and we thoroughly enjoyed his first movie ‘Super High Me’ so we got pretty excited when we saw that he had another film out which we hadn’t seen. The naming puns continue with his second movie ‘The Greatest Movie Ever Rolled’ playing on the film ‘The Greatest Movie Ever Sold’, the pun always continues into the plot of the movie.

From what we could gather the movie is about making a movie about going on tour to raise money to make a movie about going on a tour. Its a rather complex notion for us as stoners to get our heads around but we applaud Doug for using a similar plot to that of his parodied movie title.

The film lacks much of a plot unlike ‘Super High Me’ but does continue to feature the laugh out loud comedy genius of Doug Benson. The film takes you backstage as Doug tours with his co-star Graham Elwood and shows what really goes on when you go on the road. The film might not actually be about marijuana but there is no shortage of pot related jokes and scenes of Doug getting high. Much of the film is made up of clips from his stand up shows that he performed at during the tour which are nicely merged with the more up close and personal scenes that make up the rest of the film.

We are giving the film 7 out of 10 because we do believe it was a good film even if it was so different from his first one. This film is really suited to those who already appreciate Doug’s style of comedy and have already watched his other film. If you don’t know Doug Benson then you should definitely watch his other film and listen to his brilliant podcast ‘Doug loves Movies’ first, otherwise you might struggle to find this an enthralling film to watch. It's fun, it's witty but it can be a bit boring at points, however this doesn't make it a bad film and its still well worth a watch.
