Heady Entertainment: J. Lo, Cardi B, and Lizzo Scam Rich Dudes in 'Hustlers'
This weekend, stay lit and make it rain for the stripper-grifter flick "Hustlers," and witness the porn industry's evolution in "The Deuce."
Published on September 13, 2019

Welcome back to Heady Entertainment, MERRY JANE's weekly guide to just-released movies, books, and music — all fresh, dank, and THC-friendly. In specific, we choose our picks based on how they can enhance your combined consumption of cannabis and entertainment.

Burning up the big screen this week, Jennifer Lopez hits the pole in the fact-based stripper-scam saga Hustlers, and the screams hit hard in the Halloween-ready indie horror flick, Haunt.

Streaming-wise, The Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin firebombs good taste with great, sick jokes; The Deuce plows headlong into the rush of high-’80s adult entertainment, and the animated series Undone elevates its own medium to primo new peaks.

Our vintage cult movies recommended to be paired with reefer include the hair-metal teen-comedy-turned-slasher-horror Pledge Night and the brain-boiling Italian giallo thriller, Who Saw Her Die?

In music, new opportunities to spin and smoke come from Charli XCX, JPEGMAFIA, and still blazin’ nü-metal heroes, Korn.

So let’s get straight — but not “straight” — to this week’s fresh-rolled recommendations.
