Eventually, you start thinking.....what a waste.

I have never been a huge fan of improv but this story seems to have a path, and it is so good that it makes me want to take another look at some other improv movies!
David Herzog
I laughed pretty freakin' hard at a lot of the jokes, and the plot kept moving along at a decent pace.

I have to completely disagree with the previous reviewer. I just went to a screening of this film in NYC and found this movie to be absolutely hilarious. Maybe I'm of a younger generation than the previous reviewer but I wasn't the only one who seemed to enjoy this film. The theatre was sold out, had a very diverse mix of all shapes, sizes & ages in the audience and the laughter never stopped. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it. Its clear that this film is a very low budget indie and I went in not expecting much, but I found the ensemble cast very entertaining and the story surprisingly sweet ~ which is why I came on here to purchase some copies for friends! I loved it.

This movie is FUNNY. I don't think I am the target audience for this movie, but I found it hilarious - laugh til you cry. I have never been a huge fan of improv but this story seems to have a path, and it is so good that it makes me want to take another look at some other improv movies!

I think this movie is perfect for watching with friends. The laughing can be contagious when watching - so don't choke on your popcorn! If you have a chance to see this in a theater - the theater will be FULL of laughter and joy. Great movie!!

I was one of the lucky ones to see this movie in a theater, and I laughed my ass off!!! I'm a huge fan of Improv and UCB, so when I finally saw this movie there was no surprise that I would love it. After purchasing and watching it again I caught some subtle jokes that I didn't get before due to the fast pace and the fast dialogue. This is a type of movie that grows on you, like Grandma's Boy. At first I hated Grandma's Boy and thought it was the stupidest movie I have ever seen. Then I watched it with some friends who enjoyed it, and we laughed til we cried. High Road is shot like another Improv movie from a few years back called Cyrus (Matt Walsh, the director of High Road was also in Cyrus) but where Cyrus was a mopey melodrama, High Road plays out like a French Farce. The plot really doesn't matter, but it's the actions of the characters and listening to their dialogue that really makes the movie shine. Watch it with some friends and pay attention, or else you'll miss the funny.

The actors are all first rate and known for their comic chops but the film, itself, feels forced. It's like a group of actors got together and decided to improvise the entire film. Was a script ever written? I don't think so. It meanders and you get the impression that the director continued filming even when the scenes stalled. Eventually, you start thinking.....what a waste.

Not typically my kind of movie, but there were some entertaining aspects to it. It's more of a guys kind of movie.

Dylan O'brien is one of my favorite new actors. His talent really shines in this. I didn't realize that it was mostly unscripted, and that shows the talent of these actors. Somewhat inappropriate language/themes occasionally, but that's to be expected with the theme of the movie. I love it.

This movie starts with the lead actor finding his life going all over the place as his band is breaking up, his girlfriend is pregnant and his small time weed dealership goes haywire sending him on an adventure to find life and what is important.
Running for wrong reasons being chased for wrong reasons but learning what is going on and eventually turning into a nice romantic comedy overall. Fun and put together by the comedian himself Matt Walsh a fine leader as a director.
Enjoy.

I couldn't even finish this movie. And I watch lots of bad movies. How this great cast all read the script and went "this will be great!" is unfathomable.
