The story shows signs of fatigue halfway in due to structural problems and an overzealous pace but High School is still slightly better than your average stoner comedy. The pot jokes are plentiful, fresh, and rarely lowbrow, plus Adrien Bordy is hilarious as a drug-addled weed dealer with a short fuse.

at least the directing and acting are better than the script presenting a professional production value, but the dialogue and story suffer greatly. The script feels like something written to exactly follow a screenplay formula out of a book.

While making his first visit to high school detention, Henry(Matt Bush) reacquaints himself with Travis(Sean Marquette), a former childhood friend. After which, they share a little marijuana. And then Henry finds out it is the worst possible time to try illegal drugs for the first time when after a debacle at the spelling bee, Headmaster Gordon(Micharel Chiklis) announces drug testing for all students, which could not only ruin Henry's run at valedictorian, but also more importantly his scholarship to MIT. So, Henry and Travis hatch a scheme to get everybody at school stoned and thereby ruining the drug test results, followed by a visit to Psycho Ed(Adrien Brody) for supplies.

First off, "High School" has its heart in the right place, even if its humor is not. In general, it argues for not putting students under huge pressure by holding them to perfection, which is worse when applied to athletes who face the possibility of a 15,000 word article in Sports Illustrated if they screw up. Specifically, the movie smartly takes aim at the war on drugs and any kind of drug testing.

So, it is sad to note in the opening scene, the movie establishes exactly how crude its sense of humor is, doing little to differentiate itself from your garden vulgarity of teenage comedies, replete with contrived nudity, even with a neat turn from Adrien Brody. And while stoner logic might be fine and good in some places, it is real life logic that the movie has trouble with, as there is no way two guys could bake 1,000 brownies in a single night. In any case, it would have been more fun to see them struggle to bring their plan to fruition than its aftermath.
