The jokes aren't funny, the characters aren't fully developed and poor editing only makes a humorless story confusing.

Silly, sloppy, and liberated from any sense of pacing or plot

Sinfully tasteless cinema was everywhere in 2001 - but this movie is so bad it's Freudian.

As it stands, a movie like How High does nothing more than perpetuate the belief that marijuana is enjoyed solely by idiots.

Not all the gags work, not all the gross-outs serve the greater good, but How High is funny, quick, and the very definition of a pleasant surprise.

This is one clumsy cannabis comedy that couldn't give the late Timothy Leary a natural high worth experiencing! Nip this "joint" session in the bud!

For better or for worse, How High knows what its audience wants and serves it to them, straight up, without any sort of moral or ethical chaser.

Despite the comedy's reliance on drug humor, first-time director Jesse Dylan is actually less interested in getting high than in seeing how low he can go.

Less outrageous than simply desperate.

Feebly crafted in virtually every way imaginable -- directing, cinematography, acting, scriptwriting.

Maintains a consistent level of a swaggering, semi-anarchic silliness reminiscent of '70s youth-skewing comedies.

Too lazy to be a comedy, too conventional to be a head movie.

The proceedings aren't quite as annoying as expected, but it has been sloppily made, and feels about twice as long as its 91 minutes.

Its unremitting coarseness and utterly amoral attitude will be excruciating for most viewers to sit through.

Features a fine mix of several generations of comic talent plus a terrific soundtrack from its stars.

A bad Saturday Night Live skit blown up to feature length that will make some viewers long for the far funnier days of Cheech and Chong back in their day.

How High doesn't look like a movie somebody made. It looks like a movie somebody hallucinated and put up on the screen.

How High isn't just the title of this new ganja comedy, it's a question of how chemically altered you should be before you walk into the theater.
| Original Score: 2/4
