It's exactly what it appears to be: a funny-enough stoner comedy with a likable cast.
High School is a pun. Get it? This is one of those stoner comedies that may be funny if you're high - but if not, not.
The nearly unrecognizable Chiklis almost single-handedly saves the day.
High School rushes through the parts it should savor and then pads out its runtime with filler elsewhere - and, less forgivably, it doesn't make getting high look like fun.
This is mostly all reefer, no madness.
Filmmakers must have been tripping pretty badly when they made High School, a flub that's about as lucid as a stoner at a spelling bee.
A lame stoner comedy.
As sure as marijuana gets you high, you can count on weed-themed comedies cropping up every few years, each hoping to become a stoner-classic staple--a fate to which High School falls far short of achieving.
The screenplay is so cognitively impaired that the filmmakers might have been better off hacking up "Fast Times at Ridgemont High," "Dazed and Confused" and "Dude, Where's My Car?" and then sticking together random bits with masking tape. At least that would have made some sense.
Instead of putting the high in high school, this film is the kind of drug movie that gives pot smokers a bad name.
