Mac & Devin Go To High School Reviews
February 16, 2014
This movie is easily one of the most pointless, mind-numbing and profit-hungry endeavors in the history of filmmaking. Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa stars in this film directed by Dylan C. Brown which I had heard absolutely nothing about until i watched it with a group of friends. It turned out to have a very thin and boring plot and to be filled with promotions and marketing for a Snoop and Wiz album. The story is about two high-school students, one honor student, Devin, played by Wiz Khalifa and one rotten apple, Mac, played by Snoop Dogg, who becomes unlikely friends and the honor student comes to the realization that he can learn more from the rotten apple than he thought.
There are so many problems with this film that it's hard to even know where to start. The fact that it's only 75 minutes long, but cuts away from the story on several occasions for music sequences or scenes where a talking blunt preaches facts and statistics about cannabis, should tell you the small amount of actual story or character development the film contains. The few moments of story and character development that the film have are all so predictable to anyone who have seen a few high school films that watching this becomes redundant. Taking an obvious pro-cannabis stance, but still depicting the heaviest smoker as an unmotivated slacker who's been in high-school for 15 years, is a very strange choice and makes me wonder if the creators ever gave this any thought or if they were just trying to find a convenient excuse for Snoop Dogg looking older than a High-school kid.
The acting from the majority of the cast is poor at best and sometimes even so horrible that it borders on groundbreaking. The only performance that I would categorize as decent is Snoop Dogg's, which isn't strange considering that he just uses the same speech patterns and mannerisms that he's been using in the music industry for years, whether that is an act and gimmick or Snoop Dogg's real personality I'm not sure. I don't think that "Mac and Devin Goes to High School" even qualifies as half a movie and the only reason to watch it would be to examine an exercise in complete cinematic failure. It's also the first movie that I've given 0% to so far.

One of the greatest achievements in filmmaking from our generation.

Im a avid cannabis smoker, a rap listener who listens to Snoop's and Wiz's music and I also love to watch movies. If added all these elements together you would figure I would LOVE this movie. But this movie was terrible, Wiz was clearly a novice when it comes to acting; he over did his character in my view. The plot was awful I know it was suppose to make as little sense possible, but they could've tried harder. I didnt even find the jokes that funny, it had its moments but hit or miss; mostly miss. Watched it twice(Sober & the influence) still didnt do nothing for me.

Mac and Devin is the most well thought out and funniest movie i have personally seen.
This movie had the perfect mix of drama and comedy while keeping the theme of just living your life. this movie has a ton of pulse pounding moments and pop culture references to keep the movie interesting. another noteworthy fact if the perfect blend of animation and reality, some would say better then who framed roger rabbit. this is a must see movie that everyone and their mothers need to see.

This movie understands the one thing most movies this day and age, seem to forget about, and that is a good, well rounded, story. The story revolves around two loveable scamps who get into mischief one day, when principal Skinfloot gets them in trouble. Then they get high, for almost an hour and a half, while a talking joint guides us through the movie.

Terrible, stupid, pointless, and unfunny.
Executed poorly and not even cleverly handled.
Shameless movie's purpose is to only promote Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa's own music and shoving how good weed is down our throats and is NOT a bit convincing about it. Just a bunch of wasted effort.
But the songs are at least very catchy, "Young, Wild and Free" is pretty good. But the entire film is just AWFUL and UNBEARABLE... Just one long stretched-out music video.
I've seen better stoner movies...

Mac & Devin go to High School isn't what I'd call a good movie, or really even a movie to be honest. It's extremely short, clocking in at about 70 minutes and it doesn't really try all that hard. I didn't expect to watch something good though; I expected to see exactly what I did. It's a weed movie, and from the offset, a small talking joint tells you this. He also says if you don't have weed to turn the movie off because weed is needed. The joint don't lie either.
Mac is a fifteenth year senior and drug dealer. Devin is a valedictorian who is trying to balance his school with his girl friend. When Mac and Devin get paired up for a science fair, Mac introduces Devin to marijuana and it changes Devin's whole outlook on life.
There's a few good jokes, but I enjoyed the experience because I really like Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg and the cd that this movie was basically made to help market. I don't see there being a huge audience for a movie like this, but fans of the two rappers will get a kick out of it. It's nothing special, but it's worth a look if you think it looks at all entertaining.

Snoop Dogg oozes more than just cannabis from his pours in 'Mac & Devin Go To High School', he also spews an uncanny odor of likability that's impossible to ignore...but by the end of the film you'll think you've just watched a really long music video with a catchy tune.

Though most stoner comedies are rather enjoyable and humorous, Mac and Devin don't even bring the slightest smile to my face. I could also never determine which was worse, the acting or the fact that this film was even produced.
