    In the comedic realm, Half Baked stands as an emblem of stoner humor. The story orbits around three hapless New York City friends - Thurgood (Dave Chappelle), Scarface (Guillermo Diaz), and Brian (Jim Breuer) who hatch a half-baked plan to free their fellow pot-lover, Kenny (Harland Williams), from prison. Their scheme? Sell marijuana stolen from a top-secret laboratory. Navigating a maze of madcap adventures and hilarious mishaps, this quartet of misfits stumbles through NYC's underbelly, engaging with an array of eccentric characters. A comedy of highs and lows, Half Baked is a cult classic that paints a vibrant picture of friendship in the face of adversity.
