Evil Bong (2006)

I really needed a pick me up yesterday and this movie was perfect for it.  I'm not a stoner myself, but for some reason, I find stoner movies endlessly hilarious.

Evil Bong is the story of pothead roommates Larnell, Bachman, and Brett.  They're looking for a roommate, and along comes super-geek Alistair.  Alistair moves in and becomes comic fodder for the trio as he studies ruthlessly, uses sophisticated language and washes his tighty-whities in the kitchen sink.

One day, Larnell is reading through High Times and comes across an ad for a supposedly possessed bong.  He, of course, must have it  and orders immediately.  The gigantic bong arrives and all (except Alistair) smoke it.  However, there are negative consequences to using said bong.  Smokers drift into a deep sleep, and enter Bong World, where strippers and revelry await.  The problem? Dun. dun. dunnnnn.  You don't wake up.

When Alistair's love interest becomes trapped in Bong World, he makes a heroic attempt to save her.  Tommy Chong plays the ex-owner of the bong, showing up to conquer it.  Even Brandi C. from Rock of Love appears as a stripper.  And in a hilarious cameo, Bill Moseley delivers the best line of the movie, "I am going to work on you with a car battery and a grapefruit spoon!"

Obviously this movie wasn't breaking any cinematic ground, but I found it to be pretty funny.
