Fans of over-the-top and insane crass comedy will love this movie. That said, it's hard to think of anyone else who might enjoy The Misadventures of Hedi and Cokeman. Not so much a "stoner comedy" as it is a "cocaine comedy," the movie is a nonstop manic frenzy of exaggerated violence, comedic pratfalls, drug use, profanity, sexual jokes and references, and excess piled on top of excess. It's based on a web series, and to its credit, unlike so many movie adaptations from the short-attention span fare that's popular on the internet, the movie never seems to run out of energy or ideas, even if that energy is drug-fueled and chaotic, and even if the ideas grow increasingly tiresome.

It's crass and it's dark, but there are also some silly moments. The third act gets into some meta-awareness, almost like something from (gulp!) Jean-Luc Godard or Monty Python. It could be completely self indulgent, but it's no less or more self indulgent than any other moment in the movie. These meta moments, including getting into a talk to one of the better-known actors as to why he's even in this movie, are a welcome break from the unrelenting shock humor, but it just hints that there could have been much more to this besides physical humor involving a decapitated body and punching a cop with one's penis. The shock value, of course, gets increasingly less shocking over time, and becomes increasingly more tiresome.
