About the Film
Laguna Beach entrepreneurs Ben (Johnson), a peaceful and charitable Buddhist, and his closest friend Chon (Kitsch), a former Navy SEAL and ex-mercenary, run a lucrative, homegrown industry—raising some of the best marijuana ever developed. They also share a one-of-a-kind love with the extraordinary beauty Ophelia (Lively). Life is idyllic in their Southern California town…until the Mexican Baja Cartel decides to move in and demands that the trio partners with them. When the merciless head of the BC, Elena (Hayek), and her brutal enforcer, Lado (Del Toro), underestimate the unbreakable bond among these three friends, Ben and Chon—with the reluctant, slippery assistance of a dirty DEA agent (Travolta)—wage a seemingly unwinnable war against the cartel. And so begins a series of increasingly vicious ploys and maneuvers in a high stakes, savage battle of wills.
I just wanted to say I loved this film, Handsome lead actors, beautiful female co-stars, engaging story of how far they will go to save their love.
This film is about more than just buds, It's about Best Buds, with a capital "B".
Just great !
Loved it so much, I bought the soundtrack too :)
(And I don't even smoke ! )
Saw this at the cinema, and I couldn't wait to get out. If you like blood and gore, it will be your thing, but it was so bad. Hated it from the word go sadly, and John Travolta had such a small role in it, it wasn't worth is appearance.
Seriously what was he smoking? This joint starts off promisingly rushy before mellowing out into a slow boring state & finishing with a sequence that appears to be lifted from a Calvin Klein commercial. It's a blunt but not in a good way...
