Nothing to really write home about. High-School is mildly entertaining. Perhaps the nostalgia of your feelings about being in high school again, might inspire you to watch the entire movie. Otherwise, it is merely a mild entertainment.

As for being a comedy - it is - but don't expect to burst out laughing at any time. There are some characters that are amusing, but again nothing good enough to really make you laugh.

Naturally, if you are strongly opposed to drugs, then you may want to avoid watching this movie - as the entire theme is about it.

Acting was just mediocre - also. I was hoping to see some amazing work from a few unknown actors. Did not happen.

Would I watch it again? NO
Would I buy it? NO
Would I recommend it to a friend? NO

HASH(0xa1b3ff90) out of 5 stars Fun Stoner Comedy With Some Excellent Performances Dec 2 2012
By Darren O'Neill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I sat down to watch "High School" with no preconceived notions about the movie. All I knew was that Michael Chiklis was in it and that was good enough for me. I can't say Chiklis stole the show here, but he played a part so different than what he's played recently in Vegas and The Shield that my wife didn't even recognize him. Chiklis plays a high school principal hell bent on getting drugs out of his school but of course that becomes impossible to do when honors student and soon to be class valedictorian Henry, played by Matt Bush, decided to toke up for the first time the day before a school-wide drug testing program is implemented.

Henry and his stoner friend Travis, played by Sean Marquette, decide that if EVERYONE fails the drug test then nobody can really be held accountable. Sound thinking, right? Well, in order to get enough drugs to dose the whole student body they have to rip off the local drug dealer "Psycho Ed," played with gusto by Adrien Brody who absolutely steals the show here. "Psycho Ed" is one part Snoop Dogg and one part white suburban lawyer who had a nervous break down. He somehow comes off as hilarious and terrifying at the same time!

There's no doubt that the premise here is over the top, the characters are over the top and the delivery here is over the top. All of that doesn't take away from the fun of the ride. There are a ton of "stoner comedies" out there but this one really does stand on its own as a movie with a little more substance to it. Well worth the rental for Brody's performance alone!

HASH(0xa1b3ffe4) out of 5 stars A pretty funny and somewhat original stoner comedy. More like "Girl Next Door" then "Harold & Kumar". Great plot. I say B Sept. 2 2012
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
"Drugs, fornicating, a grown man singing about his feelings, it's time we win this war, expunge this school of all dope fiends." Henry Burke (Bush) has everything going for him. He has a scholarship to MIT and is in line to be his classes valedictorian. After an accident leads to detention he is brought back together with his old friend Travis (Marquette). They decide to take a break that night and unwind with a joint. After the school's representative in the national spelling bee loses it on TV the principal (Chiklis) institutes a mandatory drug test for everyone in the school. Fearing he will lose everything Henry and Travis come up with a plan. I am not really a fan of "stoner' comedy (I did like the Harold & Kumar movies) but the plot to this and the cast made it seem interesting to me. I was not disappointed. Adrien Brody is very funny as the man they steal from and Colin Hanks is good as a clueless asst. principle but Michael Chiklis steals the movie. Playing a clueless borderline pervert in charge of the school he is perhaps the funniest clueless principal since Ed Rooney. This is a very different style of stoner comedy and it is more like "Girl Next Door" then "Pineapple Express". This is nothing amazing but I enjoyed it and laughed quite a bit. Overall, a funny movie you can just put in and not think about, those are fun sometimes. I give it a B.
HASH(0xa1b42438) out of 5 stars Best Stoner Film, perhaps, ever Jan. 7 2013
By LP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I usually don't like stoner films; they just don't work for me. Often, they are too reliant on sight gags and toilet-bowl humor. Now, there are some moments like this in the movie, but it's the acting that makes this movie hilarious. Simply put, Chiklis and Brody are awesome. They're in a Daniel Day Lewis acting zone. Chiklis is side-splitting funny. I cannot get over how funny that guy was. He makes Jeffrey Jones' (AKA Ed Rooney) performance in Ferris Bueller look like a joke, and I liked Jones in that movie. I didn't even realize it was Chiklis until I saw the end credits. Completely amazing work. Brody, too, was in the acting zone. He was both hilarious and, actually, a little disturbing. He seemed like he was off the deep end. He reminded me somewhat of Daniel Day-Lewis in "There Will Be Blood." I've never seen Brody perform anything like this ever.

The other two leads, Bush and Marquette, did well enough. In a sense, they were just along for the ride. It was Brody and, especially, Chiklis who make this movie worth watching. Rarely does a stoner comedy have one good performance-let alone two great performances. Overall, I say this might be the best stoner movie ever. I like Harold and Kumar, but that movie relied too much on sight gags and other less-than-satisfactory stoner crutches. For the record, I actually sat through this movie twice in just one week. (It was on cable again, and I like to test movies with a second viewing to see if they still have the special something.) The second viewing was as funny or almost as funny as the first viewing. Chiklis just blows me away. I'm even getting giddy just thinking about his scenes. Don't miss this one. It's a shame it did so well at Sundance-just to be punted around for two years before getting released in 2012.

Pretty funny if you can handle stupidity, or if you are a non-judgemental person. Pretty unique how some people think when their choices can affect the future. I enjoyed this movie, but if you don't have a sense of humor, don't watch it.
