At the beginning of the movie, two kids are playing a prank on a third by dropping him in the pool, and they film it on camera. A little later, the assistant dean is watching it on some "youtube similar site", but the point of view is the movie camera, not the kids' camera, who presumably uploaded the movie. See more »

Super High School
21 September 2015 | by (Perth, Australia) – See all my reviews

High School is what you will expect it to be. At times it feels clever and fun, whilst at other times you can tell it is following a template left by its predecessors. However, if you go into this film knowing that you will be bound to have a good enough time. Whilst nothing in this film is really noteworthy, you can appreciate High School for what it is and it never tries to be anything else.

A decent film, with funny times. If you have ever been in predicaments, you will surely relate. Even though it is not a groundbreaking film, for the majority of it I felt as if I was watching a pretty good comedy of which nothing else could get my attention.
