A pot comedy that won't reward even the most easily satisfied stoner, High School is just as inane and ignorant as the Reefer Madness-style films it aims to satirize. We follow Henry and Travis, a valedictorian and a burnout respectively, who find themselves on the wrong end of a zero-tolerance drug test. The solution: get the whole school high (get it? High school?) so no one will notice. Director John Stalberg aims to craft something that is both a John Hughes-like high school movie and a Cheech-and-Chong–style drug hijinks film, but he's not committed enough to either— the token female love interest gets about six lines of dialogue while Adrien Brody's drug dealer Psycho Ed feels like an outtake from a funnier movie. Instead, we're left with another pandering pot movie that, based on the exaggerated speed with which the brownies take effect, comes from people who couldn't tell a blunt from a bong.
