I’m so glad a teaser was finally released. I saw this way back in June and have had to keep quiet. Well I didn’t have to keep quiet but I find it’s only fun to tease you guys when it comes to certain things.
Jonathan Daniel Brown posted on twitter that Kid Cannabis will be released on April 18th in select theatres and Video on Demand.
Kid Cannabis is scheduled to open in limited release in the US and Canada next Friday, April 18th. If you don’t live near one of the few theatres showing the movie, it will also be available through iTunes for $12.99. iTunes currently features an ‘unrated’ rating but please be aware that Kid Cannabis contains language, sexual situations, drug use, nudity and every other advisory available (and probably a few that aren’t). It is not kid friendly.

Kid Cannabis played in a theatre near me yesterday so I spent the evening with friends at Arena Cinema watching it. It’s definitely…different. I bought it off iTunes today to make captures and while I got it capped, I didn’t find out until after the fact that I forgot to change my settings. Therefore, the captures are a bit smaller than I originally intended. When I get time, I’ll go back and re-cap it in the proper dimensions.
Kid Cannabis is the true story of an Idaho teen dropout who builds a multimillion-dollar marijuana ring by trafficking drugs through the woods across the Canadian border. But his pursuit of the high life – complete with girls, guns, and vicious rival drug lords – may leave this ex-pizza boy in way over his head.

Cast: Jonathan Daniel Brown, Kenny Wormald, Aaron Yoo, Ron Perlman, John C. McGinley
An amusing Jonathan Daniel Brown stars as the enterprising Norman, a self-described loser who nonetheless proved remarkably adept at becoming a drug kingpin specializing in his favorite recreational substance. Partnering with his best friend, Topher (Kenny Wormald, Footloose), and enlisting the services of a gang comprising fellow potheads, he soon finds himself grossing a million dollars a week. Lavishing his newfound riches on his flabbergasted mother, he reassures her by explaining that he’s cashed in on a lucrative IPO.
Executive producers: Alan Pao, Datari Turner, Alison Lee, Rosanne Gooding-Silverwood, Mark Silverwood, Bic Tran, Mia Chang, Cain McKnight, Steve Ware
A would-be Scarface for young stoners, Kid Cannabis relates the true-life tale of Nate Norman, an overweight high-school dropout and pizza delivery man, who built a multimillion-dollar business smuggling marijuana from Canada to his native Idaho before eventually getting caught and sentenced to prison for 12 years. John Stockwell’s (Blue Crush, Into the Blue) film, based on a 2005 Rolling Stone article detailing the outlandish tale, has its entertaining moments and boasts pungent performances from such supporting players as Ron Perlman and John C. McGinley, but never quite succeeds in managing its uncomfortable tonal shift from dark comedy to true-crime thriller.

Although the film begins promisingly with many amusing moments — such as when, during a traffic stop, Norman is advised by a Canadian highway patrolman exactly where to go to get the best pot — it eventually degenerates into all-too-familiar territory as the nerdy drug smuggler and his cohorts lay the groundwork for their eventual fall with excessive debauched partying and cocaine use. Director-screenwriter Stockwell, clearly inspired by the likes of Brian De Palma and Martin Scorsese, displays a similar overindulgence in these repetitive scenes in which the gang’s nubile female playthings are constantly shown either nude or in various stages of undress.
