Bongwater ★★ 1998 (R)

David (Wilson) is a Portland pot dealer and aspiring artist who becomes roommates with Sere-na (Witt), although mixed signals prevents anything closer even if David is definitely lovesick. Thanks to a misunderstanding, Serena heads to New York, a bong ignites the house where David was living—burning it to the ground—and he is forced to rely on the kindness of his fellow pot buddies while Serena has her own problems in the Big Apple. However, you won't really care except Wilson is appealing in a goofy doper sort of way. 98m/C VHS, DVD .
