Editorial Reviews

The day after soon-to-be valedictorian Henry Burke (Matt Bush) takes a hit of the chronic for the first time, his school principal (Michael Chiklis) institutes a zero tolerance drug policy and administers a mandatory drug test for all students. Henry has two options: fail and lose his college scholarship, or team up with his stoner friend Breaux (Sean Marquette) to beat the system. They steal a high powered ganja from law student-turned-drug-dealer Psycho Ed (Adrien Brody) and spike the school's bake sale brownies, getting the whole school--faculty included--completely stoned out of their minds. But with the student body getting higher and higher with every brownie, and a pissed-off Psycho Ed on their tails for stealing his stash, they must find a way to keep their half-baked plan from going up in smoke.

I sat down to watch "High School" with no preconceived notions about the movie. All I knew was that Michael Chiklis was in it and that was good enough for me. I can't say Chiklis stole the show here, but he played a part so different than what he's played recently in Vegas and The Shield that my wife didn't even recognize him. Chiklis plays a high school principal hell bent on getting drugs out of his school but of course that becomes impossible to do when honors student and soon to be class valedictorian Henry, played by Matt Bush, decided to toke up for the first time the day before a school-wide drug testing program is implemented.

Henry and his stoner friend Travis, played by Sean Marquette, decide that if EVERYONE fails the drug test then nobody can really be held accountable. Sound thinking, right? Well, in order to get enough drugs to dose the whole student body they have to rip off the local drug dealer "Psycho Ed," played with gusto by Adrien Brody who absolutely steals the show here. "Psycho Ed" is one part Snoop Dogg and one part white suburban lawyer who had a nervous break down. He somehow comes off as hilarious and terrifying at the same time!

There's no doubt that the premise here is over the top, the characters are over the top and the delivery here is over the top. All of that doesn't take away from the fun of the ride. There are a ton of "stoner comedies" out there but this one really does stand on its own as a movie with a little more substance to it. Well worth the rental for Brody's performance alone!

Overall this is a great no-brainer weekend movie when there is nothing else to watch. The casting is really good, the writing is pretty good, but when it was all put together it seemed like they were making three different films. Brody delivers the psycho character well but he's in the wrong movie. His acting was so good that it seemed like he was helping a friend make a student film. Chiklis is also very funny and he seems to be in the wrong film. There are great cameos from various actors you will recognize, but beyond the simple plotting and overdone stoner jokes overall it falls flat. The 'What? What?' scene is pretty funny... actually it is very funny... What?

"Drugs, fornicating, a grown man singing about his feelings, it's time we win this war, expunge this school of all dope fiends." Henry Burke (Bush) has everything going for him. He has a scholarship to MIT and is in line to be his classes valedictorian. After an accident leads to detention he is brought back together with his old friend Travis (Marquette). They decide to take a break that night and unwind with a joint. After the school's representative in the national spelling bee loses it on TV the principal (Chiklis) institutes a mandatory drug test for everyone in the school. Fearing he will lose everything Henry and Travis come up with a plan. I am not really a fan of "stoner' comedy (I did like the Harold & Kumar movies) but the plot to this and the cast made it seem interesting to me. I was not disappointed. Adrien Brody is very funny as the man they steal from and Colin Hanks is good as a clueless asst. principle but Michael Chiklis steals the movie. Playing a clueless borderline pervert in charge of the school he is perhaps the funniest clueless principal since Ed Rooney. This is a very different style of stoner comedy and it is more like "Girl Next Door" then "Pineapple Express". This is nothing amazing but I enjoyed it and laughed quite a bit. Overall, a funny movie you can just put in and not think about, those are fun sometimes. I give it a B.

Pretty funny if you can handle stupidity, or if you are a non-judgemental person. Pretty unique how some people think when their choices can affect the future. I enjoyed this movie, but if you don't have a sense of humor, don't watch it.

This movie is probably the best stoner movie I've seen in quite some time. Most stoner movies are just cheesy and goofy but I can tell they put a decent amount of effort into making this movie actually funny. Im glad I bought this movie and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys stoner comedies.

I usually don't like stoner films; they just don't work for me. Often, they are too reliant on sight gags and toilet-bowl humor. Now, there are some moments like this in the movie, but it's the acting that makes this movie hilarious. Simply put, Chiklis and Brody are awesome. They're in a Daniel Day Lewis acting zone. Chiklis is side-splitting funny. I cannot get over how funny that guy was. He makes Jeffrey Jones' (AKA Ed Rooney) performance in Ferris Bueller look like a joke, and I liked Jones in that movie. I didn't even realize it was Chiklis until I saw the end credits. Completely amazing work. Brody, too, was in the acting zone. He was both hilarious and, actually, a little disturbing. He seemed like he was off the deep end. He reminded me somewhat of Daniel Day-Lewis in "There Will Be Blood." I've never seen Brody perform anything like this ever.

The other two leads, Bush and Marquette, did well enough. In a sense, they were just along for the ride. It was Brody and, especially, Chiklis who make this movie worth watching. Rarely does a stoner comedy have one good performance-let alone two great performances. Overall, I say this might be the best stoner movie ever. I like Harold and Kumar, but that movie relied too much on sight gags and other less-than-satisfactory stoner crutches. For the record, I actually sat through this movie twice in just one week. (It was on cable again, and I like to test movies with a second viewing to see if they still have the special something.) The second viewing was as funny or almost as funny as the first viewing. Chiklis just blows me away. I'm even getting giddy just thinking about his scenes. Don't miss this one. It's a shame it did so well at Sundance-just to be punted around for two years before getting released in 2012.
