Plot: Recently out of jail and completely broke, Julian has a plan to get outrageously rich. However, he first has to deliver his product to Montreal where his rival Cyrus is waiting to close the deal. In the meantime, the government's plan to legalize marijuana threatens Ricky and his dope business, so he goes to Ottawa to take action against the impending bill. With Julian and Ricky on a road trip, Bubbles joins the pair with his own agenda - to go find the inheritance left for him by his long-lost parents. The trio runs into trouble when ex-park supervisor Jim Lahey and Randy go after the boys in hopes of making them rot in jail.

My rating: 7/10

Will I watch it again? Yes.

I don't know what it is with the difference between the show and the movies where the movies are nearly as funny as the show.  I've binge-watched the show for a year and a half now (having seen it completely through three times and then some).  I'll watch several eps at a time and it doesn't hurt the funny at all.  I still laugh my ass off with every episode yet the movies just don't bring the funny.  With this picture, maybe part of it was weird seeing the boys out way far away from the park.  I don't know.  You can tell they had a bigger budget for this one with all of the songs they put on the soundtrack.  I still love all of these actors and their characters and I'll follow them anywhere.  I can't imagine a world without the TPB and I anxiously await every new episode, movie and whatever else they come up with.  Viva la Trailer.
