"War Dogs" is too good of a true story not to get the Hollywood treatment.In brief, in 2007, a couple of 20-something stoners from Miami Beach landed a nearly $300 million contract from the Department of Defense to supply ammunition to the Afghan military.The events have been chronicled extensively in the press over the past eight years, including by journalist Guy Lawson, whose Rolling Stone article "The Stoner Arms Dealers" and book – "Arms and the Dudes: How Three Stoners from Miami Beach Became the Most Unlikely Gunrunners in History" – became the basis for the film.Maybe that's because the audience is getting the story straight from David – whose real-life version has a cameo in the film – who is far too nice to be believable.In the end, this rendition of Efraim and David's wild story probably plays a lot like the movie version they would be likely to fantasize about.
