Storyline

High Road showcases a totally improvised script about Glenn "Fitz" Fitzgerald (James Pumphery), a young man whose loyalties are split among his band, his girlfriend Monica (Abby Elliott) and selling weed. After his band breaks up, Fitz finds himself dealing pot out of his garage and bonding with a rebellious 16-year-old Jimmy (Dylan O'Brien). As his former band mates (Zach Woods, Matt L. Jones, Lizzy Caplan) find success and one of his drug deals goes awry, Fitz and Jimmy hit the road. Amid guns, broken bones, sassy cabbies, rude hookers, and a suspicious doctor (Horatio Sanz), Fitz has to navigate their way to safety-and he doesn't even know about the surprise Monica has in store for him back home!

"High Road" Is Absolutely Brilliant!!! Unlike Anything You've Ever Seen.
10 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"High Road" Is The Single Greatest Comedy Film In The History Of American Cinema. Matt Walsh Has Proved Himself Time nd Time Again To Be A Great Comedic Voice, But Never As Strongly As In His Directorial Debut. The Story Is Simple, Yet Totally Original. The Hilarious James Pumphrey Stars As Fitz, A Stoner And Musician Who Is Suddenly Thrown Into A Threatening Situation When He Is Caught Dealing Weed To Someone At A Local Convenience Store And Goes On The Lam. Fitz Then Encounters Jimmy, A Sixteen-Year Old Who Is Running Away From His Domineering Father. Jimmy's Father Is Played By Rob Riggle. Fitz Reluctantly Takes Jimmy With Him After Assaulting Jimmy's Father With A Brick, Not Knowing That The Man Was Jimmy's Father. The Two Are Going To Oakland, California To See Fitz's Father After Fitz Learns That His Girlfriend Monica, Played By The Excellent Abby Elliot, Is Pregnant With Fitz's Child. Along The Way, They An Encounter A Prostitute Played By The Amazing Morgan Walsh. The Role Exists Only In A Cameo, But It Is Unquestionably One Of The Most Memorable Scenes In The Film. Meanwhile, Monica Has No Idea Where Fitz Has Disappeared To And Drives To Oakland To Find Fitz. When Fitz Finally Finds His Father, We Learn That Is A Drag Queen And Is Played By The Brilliantly Hysterical Rich Fulcher. The Following Scenes Are Both Hilarious And Also Provoke A Genuine Emotion Response In The Viewer. The Entire Cast Is Stellar, With Dylan O'Brien Playing Jimmy And Featuring Ed Helms, Lizzy Caplan, Joe Lo Truglio, Horatio Sanz, Matt L. Jones, Andrew Daly, And The Terrific Zach Woods. The Film Was Directed By Matt Walsh With A Completely Improvised Script. The Film Features Many Members Of UCB And Has A Similar Feel To What The UCB Has Become Known For. The Film Is Unlike Anything You Have Ever Seen. "High Road" Is Equal Parts Hilarity And Heart. Walsh's Direction Is Excellent And Wonderfully Unique. "High Road" Is, In My Opinion, A Perfect Film That Exceeds Any And All Expectations. It's One Of My Very Favorite Films.
