How High (2001)
When 'Animal House' met 'Friday'
When I was first told about 'How High' my mate said it was better then Half Baked (blasphemous!) but when I heard who was in it, I gowned. It had all the ingredients of being an awful, third rate film trying to grab cash from the whole 'teen' college movie market. Rappers in the starring roles? Usually a big no no! But there was something about How High that made it a worthwhile and very a underrated comedy.
The film didn't take itself seriously and got away with a flimsy storyline by delivering the jokes well (the use of cut scenes were excellent) and being first rate on a technical and directorial level. The production value could be seen by the choice of producers such as Danny De Vito & Stacy 'Pulp Fiction' Sher.
Other 'comedies' such as 'The Wash' used famous names to get away with a shoddy film, however, How High in my opinion could be the 'Friday' or the 'Animal House' of this decade.
Which leaves me with only one thing to say...'wheremabitches'?!
