That's The Joke (Funny & Strange) • Comedy, Short Films, 20-Apr-2022
An inventory specialist at a weed shop gets asked to try a newly engineered product before it goes on sale to the public. Duncan Dickerson directs “Wet Mouth,” a stoner comedy (run time: 4:20) sketched in with the essentials, i.e. oddball characters, zany line deliveries, and surreal breakdowns. Tasked with sampling a new marijuana strain in its test phase, Archie enlists the help of his friend Bill. After getting high, they determine that the drug does its job - they don’t get cotton mouth - but before long they experience bigger problems. And the freakout begins. Happy 420. -KA.
