The Beach Bum

The Beach Bum

Great buzz, slaughtered by professional critics and for an afternoon lark? The there main stars are Matthew McConaughey, Snoop Dogg, and Jimmy Buffett. Not exactly high-brow entertainment.

Funniest pre-release data, I heard, read someplace, that Snoop substituted “stage” marijuana for his own stash, and that resulted in the star being way too high to even function. “Matthew babbled for 18 hours.”

So, consider, the expectations weren’t high, but the show, there was enough to, to, having long-lost my amateur pharmacology license? I got nothing.

Brilliant, art-house chic film for the stoner set. Or elevated stoner humor. As a writer, yeah, I didn’t understand the appeal of the verse that was scripted, but I’m willing to admit, that might be me.

The Beach Bum

In theaters now, but especially rich at the Alamo Drafthouse.
