| Original Score: 3/5
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.
| Original Score: 3/4
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.
Maintains a consistent level of a swaggering, semi-anarchic silliness reminiscent of '70s youth-skewing comedies.
Features a fine mix of several generations of comic talent plus a terrific soundtrack from its stars.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Like its lead characters, this movie is smarter than it sometimes acts.
I could feel whole chunks of my brain dissolving, my cinematic standards being lowered, and my desire to send a check to NORML grow as I watched this movie and loudly laughed my ass off.
The infectious high spirits amid its cartoonish chaos compensate for the film's bald deficiencies and gag-inducing gags.
Aims low but smacks the funny bone considerably more often than it misses.
There's ... enough cheery mockery to amuse even non-tokers.
| Original Score: C+
A hip-hop comedy that succeeds even when How High tests how low it can go.
Method Man ... proves to be a likable performer as he tosses off and wanders through How High's gags.
A spottily amusing showcase for rappers Method Man and Redman.
Lowbrow, vulgar, and certainly formulaic, it's also creative, absolutely hilarious, and ... knows better than to shoot over its audience's heads.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
| Original Score: 1/5
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
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Sinfully tasteless cinema was everywhere in 2001 - but this movie is so bad it's Freudian.
| Original Score: 0/4
Mark this one down as a matinee for fans of Method Man & Redman or of weed itself.
