Movie Reviews

  • unfortunately, hilarity does not automatically ensue
    by Marshall Fine [Hollywood & Fine ]
  • the movie mimics its characters' confusion too well, pinballing from dully predictable goofiness to overamped paranoia with little cohesion
    2 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • the film offers proof that they are unwise as a subject for comedy unless the movie in question does something funny with them
    2 of 4 by Roger Ebert [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • the film becomes sluggish whenever focus expands to the spaced-out students, who shuffle around with unconvincing purposelessness
    2 of 5 by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York ]
  • once the plot has sprung into action, "High School" is a bumpy ride that takes a few amusing dives but never coheres into anything special
    2 of 5 by Stephen Holden [New York Times ]
  • many a scene feels a tad repetitive
    3 of 5 by JimmyO [JoBlo's Movie Emporium ]
  • lacks the oddball inventiveness of the "Harold and Kumar" films or other genuine pot comedies
    1 of 5 by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times ]
  • just about everyone inside the building is blitzed to their scalps on high-grade pot
    1 of 4 by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • it largely ignores the bliss of a marijuana high and focuses on a user's fear of getting caught with the stuff
    by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine ]
  • here, though, the plot, like the humor, is a one-note wonder
    1.5 of 4 by Scott Bowles [USA Today ]
  • all of this is remarkably cheerless, and somehow the prospect of an entire student body and faculty baked off their gourds fails to generate even perfunctory laughter
    by Andrew Schenker [Village Voice ]
  • a lot of these gags might work over a pan of pot brownies, but they fall kind of flat when all you have to work with are popcorn and Red Vines
    3 of 5 by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic ]
