We’re tipping our hat to comedian Neal Brennan (who is performing two live shows at the Rio Theatre on Thursday, August 16) with a Friday Late Night Movie screening of the 1998 stoner classic HALF-BAKED, which he co-wrote with the film’s star, Dave Chappelle.
When a member of their crew gets arrested for killing a New York City police horse by feeding it junk food, three slackin’ stoners are forced to get off their butts and raise bail by selling pot stolen from a pharmaceutical lab. It’s a risky plan but, hey, these are stand-up guys who would do anything to help out a friend in need. With Guillermo Diaz, Jim Breuer, Harland Williams, Rachel True, Tommy Chong, Snoop Dogg, Jon Stewart, Tracy Morgan, Stephen Baldwin, Willie Nelson, Janeane Garofalo.
