Kid Cannabis


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.


  • A rollicking tale of border-running teenage pot entrepreneurs based on the real-life story of Nate Norman. The youthful cast is pretty good and receives a delightful boost from two veteran actors, Ron Perlman as a kingpin who bankrolls the boys, and John C. McGinley as the grower whose product they import.
  • How Norman and his gang learn the ropes, work the game and earn their fleeting, if nerve-wracking moment in the sun proves an enjoyable, well-crafted ride in the hands of writer-director John Stockwell.
  • This wild story sells itself
  • Brown's performance as Norman goes deep enough to penetrate his protective bluster: There's more Max Fischer in him than Tony Montana. He's the reason this convincing pro-legalization editorial is also a memorable coming-of-age story.
  • writer-director John Stockwell commits to his hero's unshakable awkwardness, imbuing his character with the sort of half-baked hubris that often accompanies adolescence.
  • There are tons of laughs in Kid Cannabis but the style and vision of Stockwell allows this to flourish so much more. The "Gopro" look found on certain parts gave a look to the dark comedy based on films that pushes it to this generation of moviegoers.
  • Het op waargebeurde verhalen gebaseerde relaas van een pafferige nerd die zich ontwikkelt tot grootschalig drugsdealer komt namelijk best realistisch over. Bij tijd en wijle neemt men echter toch ietwat bijzondere zijpaden. Zo is het leuk dat buiten de jonge cast veteranen Ron Perlman en John C. McGinley meedoen. Hun personages doen een glimlach oproepen in een niet altijd grappig verhaal.
