Trivia The Beach Bum

The second Harmony Korine movie to star an actor from the 'High School Musical' franchise. The first was 'Spring Breakers', starring Vanessa Hudgens and now 'The Beach Bum' stars Zac Efron. Snoop Dogg switched Matthew McConaughey?s prop weed for real weed during a scene. The actor said in the Jimmy Kimmel show that "The next 9 hours were a lot of fun but I don't think we used one word in the English language". According to director Harmony Korine, some cinemas in Los Angeles have agreed to show the movie while spreading curls of marijuana (smoke), so the public can get the "full experience".
