"Guns And Weed: The Road To Freedom" DVD (director: Michael W. Dean and Neema Vedadi)

This scattered documentary compares/juxtaposes the arguments against gun control and for marijuana legalization into a single film, and a scattered mess it is. With their hearts in the right places, the filmmakers illustrate an ideal of non-aggressive, pro-American freedom and upstanding Constitutional rights. No problem there. But the talking heads here are heavily edited (to the point of being distracting), and the pseudo-news format is silly and amateurish.

I understand that this is meant to be both educational and fun, but the awful hip-hop interludes and primitive visual effects are off-putting. I say no thanks, guys. Maybe next time. (MVD Visual)
