Product Description

Two of music's hottest multi-platinum recording superstars, Method Man and Redman, team up in this outrageous hit that Kevin Thomas of the Los Angeles Times hails, "A Raunchy Good-Natured Comedy!" Silas (Method Man) and Jamal (Redman) are slackers with a talent for botany (and booty) and a knack for staying far away from school. Against all odds, both ace a college entrance exam and end up being accepted into Harvard, where they turn the school upside down in their pursuit of parties, honeys and outrageous hi-jinks!

Amazon.com

Grab your favorite munchies, kids. Red and Meth, that dope-addled dynamic duo, are going to Harvard! And while it's not an episode of Masterpiece Theatre, How High is destined to become a guilty pleasure of the cannabis crowd. The plot's a familiar one--take the basic selling points of any Cheech & Chong movie (a pair of shambolic protagonists who smoke lots of weed while slinging slang and driving funky, '70s-style cars), graft them onto a generic "raising hell on campus" teen movie scenario, and shake vigorously. The result is a prosaic effort that does contain some all-too-brief moments of genuine humor. Red and Meth, a.k.a. Redman and Method Man, may look like the world's oldest freshmen, but both offer genial performances, especially Method Man, who imbues the character of Silas with a dog-eared gentleness that raises him above the film's leaden script and plasticine directing. --Rebecca Levine

    The snobs and other uptight people will hate this one....but if you have a sense of humor, you will be rolling on the floor. Very funny and talented supporting cast for Method Man and Redman. Forget about the plot (think Marx Bros.)and just enjoy some of the year's hippest and funniest gags.

    I saw in the movies with my best friend and we thought we were gonna die laughing. This movie is hella funny, Red and Meth are awesome. all of those people who say this movie is bad are probably old geezers who are mad that they are not young enough to have like us teenagers and what not.
    The plot of two stoners getting into harvard is quite ingenious in this sensitive comedy. Watch this movie with the parents due to the low ratio of swear words, and there is barely any smoking or drug abuse-THATS UNHEARD OF IN THIS MOVIE!!! Hey you might even learn something because they are going to Harvard and learning too!
    Highly recommend to buy this movie about two low class but well brought up boys finally achieving their goal of going to an ivy league school, you might cry you will feel such joy for these two excellent role models.

    To say that I enjoyed this movie makes me feel kind of guilty. To admit that I actually wore my sweater like Method Man because of this movie turns my cheeks red. But, the fact that I actually watched this film with my best friend's 6-year-old son while I was babysitting is probably the one thing I'm most ashamed of.

    Ouch.

    Ha, anyways, this film, while really stupid, is also pretty funny. It doesn't have a great sense of humor, but it manages to illicit the types of laughs it sets out to (I was NOT high when I watched this, although I have been told numerous times that it helps) and so I can't say I was disappointed. The plot is not anything you'll need to remember. I mean, Method Man and Red Man smoke a genius (literally, not figuratively) and wind up in Harvard. After that, well it's rather generic teen/sex/com fun, and it mostly works.

    Mostly.

    Red Man and Method Man deliver respectable performances considering who they are and what they do (they are by far more superior rappers than actors) and the supporting cast is predictably sufficient for what they need to do. In the end there isn't a lot more to be said. Sit back, relax and turn your brain off.

    Dude, this movie was so frickin hilarious I thought I would die at times. Me and my buds got a random sense of humor, and this was just it. If you havnt seen this yet, and you can relate to the characters....for whatever reason, SEE IT!

    Normally I am not at all a fan of "stoner films", the whole idea of drug use, let alone glorifying it in film upsets me to no end, but I have to say that this movie made me fall over laughing! It's very rare to see a movie anymore that can keep you laughing from begining to end, but if you like to laugh this is a great flick. Not for the kiddies however, but definately a shocking surprise to find out that it wasn't another stupid movie your wasting your hard earned money on!
    Totally worth the price, lot's and lot's of fun! Method Man and Red Man deliver an outstanding preformance comparable to that of Chris Rock and Chris Tucker! I can't even begin to fully explain the hillarity of this movie, you definatly have to see it to believe it!

    The movie is great if u like movies about pot I guess, but it is very funny. I bought it for my boyfriend and we got it right away. The 1st movie was damaged so sent back and they were really quick and helpful in the whole process but the rreplacement actually did skip once. I've bought probly 35 movies on Amazon.com and never had any problems before. Always very happy. No biggie, only cost's $1.99 at Hastings to have the disc resurfaced anyway. :)
