Very true to life in that business at that time.

I was there. This story is heavily fictionalized but similar situations like it did occur.

I liked this dvd it’s different from what I’ve ever seen Jon Bon Jovi do as an actor he went out of his realm it was a stretch of a character for him. I bought this to add to my collection of JBJ things glad I did.

Great Comedy Movie!
Verified purchase
It is a great movie. Slightly dark comedy. I stumbled onto it back in 2004, I believe, on HBO one night. Within 15 minutes I knew I had to own it. I couldn't believe all these big actors were in it and yet I had never heard of it. I made sure to check the date on it at the end of the film - 1998. I was wowed because that is farther back than I thought. In 1998, I was too young to appreciate such a movie. ****Ted Danson as the toy factory mafia guy is hilarious.**** It's a great movie, at least rent it. Actually it might be cheaper to buy it now, BUY IT.

it falls a little short, but I love it
Verified purchase
This is not a super high quality movie and it's not roll on the floor funny. It's good and the humor works. It's more of a misadventure - action with humorous aspects and scenes. Subjectively, I love it and watch it every now and then. Though when I first got it I watched a few times in one month.

Great movie - unlike any other film about marijuana
Verified purchase
This is one of my all-time favorite movies. Great cast, great plot, great screenplay. Very funny, but not in the way other movies about marijuana are. Most "pot movies" are slapstick, but Home Grown is a true drama, with tasteful comedy thrown in for fun. I wish more film makers would make movies about subjects like marijuana, skateboarding, and snowboarding without having them resemble Dumb and Dumber.

The headline
Verified purchase
it's a great way to pass time. One of those things that's a simple plan going horribly wrong when the players are unaware of the job they try to do. I also recommend 'A simple plan', it goes along the same feel with a different story \.
