3.0 out of 5 stars "Back in 1936, people were more easily startled..." June 7 2009
By Andrew McCaffrey - Published on Amazon.com
REEFER MADNESS (1936) was rediscovered and became a cult film in the 1970s because of its unintentional humor, its over the top attempts at blatant propaganda and its general and inherent silliness, which makes it the perfect candidate for Rifftrax. Rifftrax (a spin-off featuring three of the writers and stars from the great movie-mocking TV show "Mystery Science Theater 3000") usually uses recent films as its sandbox, but for their DVD releases they've been going with the only films whose DVD rights they likely could get their hands on: cheap, old stinkers that have fallen into the public domain. Personally, I prefer making fun of the more obscure or the older films that haven't stood the test of time, so I'm more than happy with these direct-to-DVD releases.

The first time I watched this DVD, I was actually a little disappointed. This had less to do with the witty comments from Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, and more to do with the film itself. REEFER MADNESS has had a certain reputation for a long time and you can't walk very far on a college campus without tripping over a copy of it. However, I had never seen the film before, and I probably had a mental image in my mind of a far far sillier, more outrageous film than this piece of celluloid could possibly be expecting to provide.

However, I gave it another chance, and that second viewing was a much more pleasant experience. The first time, the reefer and drug jokes seemed very repetitive. But the second time the jokes had a more rounded feel. (This sort of reaction is something I had a few times with the old "Mystery Science Theater 3000" show. Every so often, I would be indifferent to an episode before warming to it after a repeated viewing.)

Still, this isn't the strongest release I've seen from Rifftrax which is a pity given the film they had to work with. Of course, an average Rifftrax/MST3k is still worth a look for fans and the uninitiated alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars PSA? June 14 2011
By Donald Garon - Published on Amazon.com

I guess when this film was made, it was intended to be some sort of cautionary tale or public service announcement. Looking at it today it just seems silly and hysterical. But as always, if you bought the Rifftrax version you knew this when you bought it. The guys do a great job with their comments, and you'll be laughing from start to finish. If you're an MST3K/Rifftrax fan, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Reefer Madness Riff Tracks Dec 30 2011

This was a gift for Christmas so I cannot vouch for the quality of the dvd. I can say it arrived in excellent condition and considerably faster than I expected. The recipient was very happy upon opening his gift.
5.0 out of 5 stars Loved this one!! March 24 2014
By Deidre Ann - Published on Amazon.com
Let me start by saying that when you take Reefer Madness, an already strange and funky cult film, and combine it with riffs from Mike, Kevin and Bill, you are in for a hilariously fun time!! This is an excellent film gives you a good excuse to throw a party and share it with friends--everyone will love it and as they say-laughter IS contagious! Be warned!! 5 stars all the way!!
5.0 out of 5 stars The Next Best Thing Oct. 8 2010
By Tony P - Published on Amazon.com

Sure, MST3K is gone (but never forgotten), but this is the next best thing. A cheap DVD (thanks, MovieMars) of a BAD movie with some nice cutting-up by Mike, Kevin, and Bill is a great way to spend an evening. Although it's not exactly the same without Pearl, Bobo, Brain Guy, Dr. Forrester, and TV's Frank, the guys are riffing real well with the type of jabs you always loved. BUY THEM!
