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.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.5/10

HIGH School isn't exactly Harold and Kumar-level genius, but it is worth the legal risk.
June 8, 2012
Low-key but amiable comedy, which borrows from many other movies, but still has its own spirit.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
June 8, 2012
One of the broadest, silliest (yet somehow still endearing) stoner comedies in a while, indulging the adult members of the cast with particular gusto.

It's exactly what it appears to be: a funny-enough stoner comedy with a likable cast.

Through it all, Stalberg and company manage to create some creative visuals involving the paranoia and/or the ecstasy of being high, even if the sequences begin to blur into one hazy memory after awhile.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Stoner-friendly B-movies don't come much closer to producing a contact high than this dastardly little comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: B-
May 26, 2011
Yes, the drugs-can-be-fun message is somewhat questionable, but sharp writing and a thoroughly engaging cast makes it great fun to watch.

July 6, 2010
A sophomoric comedy with honor-roll style and smarts.
April 14, 2010
A stoner comedy worthy of being mentioned in the same paragraph as both Dazed and Confused and the great John Hughes.
April 6, 2010
Coasts over its missteps and succeeds on equal parts quick humor, likable characters, and pure energy. Oh, and weed.

Despite its stoner credentials, High School thrives on speed.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
February 1, 2010
destined to take its place among classics like HALF-BAKED and UP IN SMOKE

July 6, 2012
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.

After an amusing start, this film seems to forget it's a pot comedy.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/10
June 13, 2012
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.
Full Review | Original Score: D

Starts with a viable premise, then veers off into something more mundane.
Full Review | Original Score: C
June 8, 2012
A pot comedy that won't reward even the most easily satisfied stoner.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
June 8, 2012
High School suffers from an increasingly stagnant, wheel-spinning midsection that triggers its transformation from passable comedy to interminable disaster.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
