Taking inspiration from Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me, Michael Blieden's documentary Super High Me charts what happens to comedian Doug Benson as he spends thirty days smoking marijuana. Benson also abstains from the drug for thirty days so that the movie can highlight the various differences between clean-living and waking and baking. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Features comedian Doug Benson expanding a bit from his stand-up act to strained results."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"Doug Benson is a funny guy, heartily working his laidback wit and weed-centric material to great effect, cracking up the crowds and endearing himself to the stoner underground."
‑ Brian Orndorf, BrianOrndorf.com
"A niche doc.... Don't smoke this particular joint unless you're already familiar with the buzz."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
"However benign you may think its subject is, Super High Me is proof that stoned people are rarely as funny as they think they are, just the same as your coked-up friends are never as interesting as they think they sound."
‑ Mark Rahner, Seattle Times
"Though the point of the film is somewhat obscured by its unwieldy structure (stoned director? high editor?), the project overall has the potential to be the stoner's Rocky Horror Picture Show."
‑ Sara Maria Vizcarrondo, Boxoffice Magazine
"Comedian Doug Benson determines what it would be like to get high for thirty days. What would this prove? Probably nothing, but it was really funny to watch."
‑ Brian Gibson, Film School Rejects
"For those of us who miss Dave Attell's Insomniac TV show, it's fun to merely watch, once again, a dingy comedian stumble bleary-eyed around various cities with a cameraman in tow."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, L.A. Weekly
"Super High Me is nowhere near the smartest or most thought-provoking documentary you will ever see, but it certainly delivers enough humor to keep even the non-stoners chuckling for an hour and a half."
‑ Erik Davis, Cinematical
