Rock Opera

This amiably crude stoner comedy (1999), set on the fringes of the Austin music scene, follows the complacent Toe (Jerry Don Clark) as he gets high and sells low-grade pot to finance his band, PigPoke. Thanks to his experiments with a new animal tranquilizer, he fails to repay a loan from his drug supplier, which sets off a chain of misunderstandings and lands the frazzled musician in the crosshairs of some seedy criminals. Writer-director Bob Ray devotes a significant chunk of the movie to Toe and his friends' pot-induced conversations, which are amusing but get pretty tired after a while. 90 min.
