  • Summary: The thriller/killer genre goes way back. Kudos to the team for presenting the classics (a babysitter's scary walk through the house alone) while...
  • Pros: Good weave of cinema, internet, and you tube.
  • Cons: Nothing

Wondering Face

  • Summary: I had to see it twice, I confess. The first time was alright. Second was better because whoever follows some of Araki's work won't understand why he did this. I'm gonna give my best shot here. The movie is original because it is a comedy with a screwball stoned character caught between very serious situations without pretension of disbelief.

A good movie if you actually SMOKE.

  • Summary: I completely disagree with many of these bad reviews. My personal opinion: if you smoke, definitely see this movie. But not while you're stoned--it will make you paranoid about everything! If you have never smoked pot, or are against it, don't even bother. Honestly, the whole movie is kind of like an inside joke. If you don't get high or haven't gotten high, you won't think it's entertaining, and you probably won't get it.

An air of innovation verses your typical run-of-the-mill stoner movie.

  • Summary: I've read a lot of angry comments about this movie, claiming it's "bashing" on "stoners" and anti-pot propaganda. This is not the case. If you're familiar with Araki's directing and themes in creating movies, it would be easy to recognize this as a satire. Obviously things of this extreme nature don't happen to people who smoke pot, but I like my comedies to have an entertaining plot.

I loved it!

  • Summary: WOW, do i love a good stoner movie! Maybe it has something to do with me loving to get high myself and being able to relate to how the main character deals with situations. There seems to be a lot of people here who have to over analyze even the simplest movies. I'm not a typical stoner.

Anna Faris is FUNNY!--Movie is so-so.

scoochie9, IMDb

  • Summary: Anna Faris is, in my opinion, the funniest young comedic actress out there today. In "Smiley Face", she is extremely entertaining (and completely unconcerned about vanity) as Jane, the much-too-stoned pothead. I just love her (and I'm not even gay)! The story has me scratching my head a little bit. I can't decide if it's just some mindless, silly stoner movie (which works for me!), or, as another reviewer put it, some sort of 70's anti-marijuana training film.

Worth a watch, if you're into these kinds of films!

Angultra1, IMDb

  • Summary: I saw this movie on a whim because it had some actors I knew, and looked like something similar to Napoleon Dynamite or other quirky films. One critic on the DVD box says "it's like Harold and Kumar but with a chick". Personally, I found it only slightly similar, if even that. Possibly because I wasn't craving a white castle burger the entire time (FYI, the nearest one is over 5 hours away from my home). For starters, this is a very unique film.

Pot helps!

rumen-manev, IMDb

  • Summary: Extremely delighted by the film! Stoner movies have always been categorized in a different way as regular movies. It's not something serious that you would watch to learn a valuable lesson or to experience an unearthly ascension. The movie is just pure fun. The plot is rather easy to understand. The lack of complexity makes it a pleasant experience for everyone who would appreciate the humor in drug use.

Acorn Video includes missing footage but cuts too many scenes

peterkiv (peterkiv@aol.com), IMDb
27 November 2006
  • Summary: The recent release of Smiley's People on Acorn Video DVD contains the sex club scene in Germany deleted in the U.S. broadcast but sadly deletes or cuts too many of the scenes that build suspense in this complex thriller. After Smiley retrieves the negative in Hampstead Heath he is shown purchasing the chemicals to develop the negative and subsequently developing it in his flat.
