Goofs

When Silas is waking Jamal up for crew practice, the alarm clock he holds near Jamal's face clearly reads 7:01AM. However, earlier in the movie, Bart stated that crew practice begins at 6:00AM. Jamal definitely would not have made it to practice. See more »

Funny flick
8 January 2002 | by (Woodbridge,VA) – See all my reviews

How High is just what Amercia needed in this year, a funny flick that doesn't take itself seriously. The plot is good and the acting by Method Man whose always good is great. Redman and Mike Epps both steal every scene their in as does I Need Money. My only problem with the film was the lack of nudity. But I still give it a 5/5.
