I wanted this to be decent but goodness was it bad.

It's a movie about two stoners who smoked a special weed that got them into Harvard, I don't know what anyone could have been expecting aside from a bad movie. This is exactly what you'd expect it to be, and that's not necessarily a good thing. It's definitely something you watch with a group of friends, and I definitely think that would enhance the movie! This has a decent cast that all give pretty good performances, but they're not given much to work with, obviously! Mike Epps was really good, as usual! This was one of his better, or I guess maybe just more interesting, roles! I think the direction made this a bit better, because he went on to direct one of my personal favorites, American Wedding, and an alright ok movie, Kicking & Screaming. It's definitely also pretty weird that this guy, the director, is Bob Dylan's son! This isn't a good movie, but if you wanna watch with friends, I think I'd say it's more than watchable. I also might wanna watch it again at some point, which is why I'd overall put it in my guilt pleasures list!

It's a shame that members of the Wu-tang clan would sell out like this. They had a certain cool which elevated them above a lot of others in their genre and then they go and make such a ridiculous film. I guess money rules their world.

Some parts were very funny, but other than that it seemed like a dull, poorly acted movie with a weak plot. The only way to enjoy this movie is to get high

Method Man and Lark Voorhees make what should be a run of the mill silly comedy a lot of fun

Taking How High seriously is such an impossible task, if it not only for the fact it is incredibly offensive, but because it is the only film i know to date that is so self aware it becomes unaware. It sits in the void between so bad its good and utter drivel. Regardless of its impurities however, the film actually works as a whole, something you would expect this level of film making to be almost incapable of doing. Silus and Jamal are 2 down and outs, after the death of his friend Ivory, Silus grows his friends ashes into a cannabis plant and lives out Ivory's final wish, for him to go to school and get educated about his talent in botanicals. After realising that by smoking Ivory, not only would he appear but he is also willing to help the pair pass all their exams, leading them straight through harvard, where they cause hell, annoy all the goody two shoes and get "Dem Bitches". Yes this film is so blatantly offensive to anyone who is not black, male and in their 20's, however it does carry some stupid comedy and genuine moments of laughter from time to time. The acting isnt so much as atrocious as what you'd expect from the roster on offer here, in fact Redman and Method Man do a formidable job of holding your attention for the duration, even if the script forces some heavy message hinting at the viewer from time to time. The supporting cast are just about fine and dandy also, including Mike Epp's who plays a pretty dumb pimp. Its all rather, dumb and fun and cringe worthy at the same time. It has a fun soundtrack for the time, the production values are decent enough for 2001 and its not exactly boring to watch. It's like going back to high school at the age of 30 and hanging about with all the stoners. It would be stupid, however if would give you some sense of rememberance, for better or worse. There really isnt much else to say, How High is what it is a dumb stoner movie, nothing more, nothing less.

I fell asleep two times while watching this movie. Even for it's very specific audience, it isn't that funny, yet of course it has a couple good laughs. Maybe it was just too black for me.

Okay, as strange as I am and most think I'm high. I don't smoke. However, this is one of the funniest films about smoking besides Half Baked. My go to movie when I just eat lotsa junk food and pretend I'm high.
