High School definitely won't be everyone's flavor of pot comedy, but it's certainly a fun trip and a clever spin on the genre.

Surprisingly solid and funny... It's rare for a stoner comedy to have so much ambition.

A hot mess whose sub-par direction mostly neutralizes its fantastic comedic premise. High School is a willfully 'stupid' stoner comedy, yes, but it also illustrates the gap between stupid done right and merely indulged too far.

HIGH School isn't exactly Harold and Kumar-level genius, but it is worth the legal risk.

After an amusing start, this film seems to forget it's a pot comedy.

While the movie is insistently unfunny, it's almost tragic how badly director John Stalberg Jr. fumbles the potential for a wacked-out farce, refusing to let loose with the boys as they scramble to maintain order.

Starts with a viable premise, then veers off into something more mundane.

Low-key but amiable comedy, which borrows from many other movies, but still has its own spirit.

A pot comedy that won't reward even the most easily satisfied stoner.

One of the broadest, silliest (yet somehow still endearing) stoner comedies in a while, indulging the adult members of the cast with particular gusto.

High School suffers from an increasingly stagnant, wheel-spinning midsection that triggers its transformation from passable comedy to interminable disaster.

Quickly grows old with no likable characters or anything else, much less genuine wit or humor, to engage.

It's about a 'high' school, and once you've gotten that you've pretty much figured out this stoner comedy.

W're left with poorly reasoned scenes and storylines that dangle like a pothead's unfinished sentences.

Might look better through a haze of the right kind of smoke. But unassisted it's just too sloppy and puerile to be more than sporadically funny.

If it ever opens at a theater near you, remember: Just say no.

... the low-brow script feels thrown together from a series of frat-house tweets.
