Synopsis
The stoner road movie Rolling Kansas is the writing and directing debut of actor Thomas Haden Church (Lowell from NBC's Wings). The story concerns the Murphy brothers: Gas station attendant and local pot dealer Dave (Jay Paulson), paraplegic student Dink (Sam Huntington), and recently divorced Dick (James Roday). Just when Dick is about to lose his T-shirt-selling business in Texas, the brothers find a treasure map leading to special forest of marijuana in Kansas. Left to them by their late hippie parents, a plentiful supply to sell could answer their various financial problems. This sends the three brothers on a road trip in a junky car, accompanied by Dave's upbeat co-worker, Kevin (Charlie Finn), and Dink's useful roommate, Hunter (Ryan McDow). Rip Torn makes a cameo as a horticulturist while Church appears as a cop and a DEA agent (along with comedian Kevin Pollak). Rolling Kansas premiered at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, All Movie Guide

Not even six-foot bong hits can save this movie. Believe me, I tried. The acting was truly atrocious, the characters shallow and unconvincing, and the writing was haphazard and simply not funny. Rip Torn provided a short respite in the sea of untalented, and the steroid-like aggressiveness of paraplegic Dink did give me a chuckle or two. But then Dink's character develops an uncomfortable affection for bunnies, and stoner Kevin's repeated exclamations of "Dude, I think I'm gay!" seemed to be shoved in at the last minute in hopes of making someone laugh. Alas, it did not work. If you're looking for a silly stoner move, there are much better options out there like Road Trip, Half-Baked or, of course, the classic Up In Smoke. Don't waste your time with Rolling Kansas.
