A comedy of absurd situations and misunderstandings. Hans and Max would like to corner the local hot dog market, whereas Harry would prefer to be pampered by his muscular auto mechanics. But a bag with mysterious contents interrupts everyone’s plans.

Nach einem etwas holprigem Start nimmt dieser Trip sehr schnell Fahrt auf und endet in einem verschwurbeltem Feuerwerk, das ich so noch nicht erlebt habe. Den fünften Stern vergebe ich vor allem wegen des grandiosen Finales und auch für die sympathisch nonchalante Performance aller Beteiligten, die einem im deutschen Kino, vor allem in der deutschen Komödie, leider viel zu selten begegnet.
I accidentally forgot to take acid before watching this film. Michael Glawogger was great his fiction films and also his documentaries are all completely insane. I really want to see the short film he made on San Pablo Avenue in Berkeley but I think the only print is in an archive in Vienna. What a great future Glawogger had and so tragic he died suddenly of malaria while in Africa. A crazy unpredictable demise.
Right out of the gate I was ready to give up on CONTACT HIGH. Honestly wasn't sure I could make it ten minutes. The visual gloss was a high-class kind of ugly, and the zaniness seemed forced and tasteless. But I have to say: pretty glad I stuck w/ it. It very quickly begins to dawn on you that what at first seems to be forced zaniness is actually a commendable determination to be be uniquely frickin' bonkers.
Maybe the humor just doesn't translate well, but this movie just isn't very funny. The performances are ok and the art design is interesting, but it's really just a boring, plotless, intentionally incomprehensible movie that might've made a better short film.
A garbled mess of a movie, but I'll be damned if it ain't laugh-out-loud funny at times! Kinda reminiscent of the old Cheech & Chong movies. Everyone seems to be having a hell of a lot of fun, which is quite contagious as the film zooms along. The film works decidedly well, but with definite moments of misfires and jokes that go nowhere. With more directorial refinement, this movie could have really been fantastic.
