Editors’ Notes The fertile, culturally attuned comic minds of Judd Apatow, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg pose a question that apparently escaped everyone else in sequel-mad Hollywood: What if Jerry Bruckheimer made a stoner comedy? Chances are the veteran action producer wouldn’t have blessed it with as delightfully a loopy soundtrack collection, one that spins Huey Lewis and the News’ infectious, ‘80s throwback title track into a dizzy musical cocktail that freely mixes prime hip-hop (Cypress Hill, Public Enemy, Bone, Thugs-N-Harmony) and Jamaican influences as disparate as Peter Tosh and Eddy Grant’s Rock-of-the-‘80s staple “Electric Avenue” alongside Bell Biv DeVoe, Mountain’s ‘70s hard rock, and even exotica pioneer Arthur Lyman. Top it off with some Robert Palmer and Spiritualized, a couple slices of composer Graeme Revell’s nervous, Bruckheimer-lampooning action score and the sublime “Bird’s Lament” by Moondog & The London Saxophonic and you’ve got a wonderfully free-associating collection as potent as the mythical herb that inspired it.
