The film doesn't establish the culture Reeves and Harris come from, so many of the fish-out-of-water jokes simply thud.

Lightly amusing in a Cheech and Chong way, though its central fantasy concept sputters to near-irrelevancy.

Besides its prominent on-screen presence, marijuana also likely played a significant role in the conception of this low-brow comedy.

Can we collectively agree to put a moratorium on the stoner comedy? Or at least hand out a limited number of vouchers to filmmakers per decade?

"Ripped" blows a potentially funny idea on slapdash filmmaking and lazy storytelling. If much of this overly broad eye-roller wasn't made up on the fly, it sure looks that way.

Ripped is not a good film, yet it's also a movie that's difficult to completely hate.

Stoner comedies serve a very specific audience, but that designation doesn't mean they have to be slapdash, lazy films.

The concept is unoriginal and uninspired but Ripped does have several laugh out loud moments brought on by a talented cast.

It's not a bright idea to end a movie with its worst joke, but Epstein doesn't have much else with "Ripped," which isn't an endeavor stitched together with care.
