This is easily one of the funnier movies I've seen in a while. It really captures the spirit of the hippie movement in the 60s and 70s. The ensemble cast works really well. None other the actors shines too much, and none get left behind. It's a good mix of strong personalities and weaker ones. The humor is of course dirty humor, but it seems to fit the plot and characters and is never forced. Personally, I thought this film had much fewer toilet jokes than most modern "so-called comedies" like Hangover and Old School. The toilet humor seems appropriate for and drives the plot. On top of that, you can't beat 60s rock'n roll music as a soundtrack. Overall, 4.5 stars.
