Comedians, actors, and musicians of all stripes share stories about their experiences with hallucinogens in Netflix’s upcoming documentary “Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics.”
The official trailer (above) begins with recording legend and Stern Show veteran Sting waxing philosophical about drug use. “I don’t think psychedelics are the answer to the world’s problems, but they could be a start,” he says … just before sharing an anecdote about the time he tripped so hard that grass started talking to him.
Written and directed by Donick Cary, the film includes drug-fueled stories from celebrities like Sarah Silverman, Ben Stiller, Paul Scheer, A$AP Rocky, Rosie Perez, Grateful Dead drummer Bill Kreutzmann, Rob Corddry, and Ad-Rock of the Beastie Boys which are brought to life via animation and star-studded re-enactments.
“I took acid once. Maybe didn’t even need to. Probably could’ve just watched this documentary,” Stiller says at one point.
The trippy doc also features entertainers like Nick Offerman, Adam Scott, and Nick Kroll schooling audiences on everything from the drugs’ scientific properties and medical uses to what happens when a person takes more LSD than they can handle.
“It’s always when you say, ‘I don’t feel anything’—that’s usually the tipping point,” Silverman helpfully explains as an animated version of her face melts away.
“Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics” drops May 11 on Netflix.
