Well, here is the one guy that actually liked watching "Soul Plane", so I also was quite into the humor of this movie at first. However about halfway through this movie started to go downhill very fast.

As the start of the movie literally tells you; in order to enjoy and appreciate this movie you really first need to smoke some weed. Now I am not saying you should take drugs before watching this movie but it should tell you something about the movie its style and type of humor. If this doesn't sound fun or appealing at all to you, then simply stay away from this movie and never even come close to it.

The comedy of the movie is quite random at times and very often has nothing to do with the movie and its main story at all. I seriously don't mind this, since most of it really cracked me up. It however starts to become tiresome after a while, especially when it becomes apparent that the movie isn't going anywhere anymore with its story and is completely starting to loose focus after some time.

There comes a point, about halfway through the movie, that it becomes too much of a drugs movie. Seriously, every characters starts doing drugs (well, only marijuana) and only good things come from it, all the time. Not that this movie is necessarily a pro-drugs movie though, it's just far too silly for that of course but in parts it's actually still advocating for legalizing and using marijuana but this movie is of course not the best way to do so and isn't exactly setting the right example for any youngsters out there, though Snoop himself will probably disagree with me on this.

The way I see it; every now and then Snoop Dogg decides to have some fun and call a couple of friends to make a movie with. Nothing too fancy or expensive, just a simple movie to make, to pass some time with and to have a great and fun time while shooting. This for most part can be seen back on the screen, which is a positive thing to say, since it makes the movie a really fun one to watch at parts but the quality and money put into is all far too little to truly consider this a good enough movie, or even to take it serious enough as one.

Snoop Dogg is actually also the reason why I sometimes watch these kind of movies. I really like him as a person and actor and his personality and comedic style always makes me laugh and smile. He also definitely is being the highlight of this movie. Without him I would had most likely absolutely hated watching it.

Not a good movie by any means but I at least still got some laughs out of it. Thanks Snoop!
