This old white lady loved this black stoner film

I haven't listened to much rap music since the 1980's so I really didn't know who Method Man and Redman are, but that really didn't make a difference after my husband and I started watching this film on a satellite TV channel. We did not, I repeat, did not stop laughing. Stoned stories, of which I have a few from my youth, are always hilarious and this film takes that premise to a super-elevated (high) level. Method Man's character Silas takes a scientific approach to cultivating his herb, and his mother keeps hounding him to take the college entrance exams. His friend Ivory does too, since Silas is a talented amateur botanist and Ivory thinks he should get an education and get a degree for his abilities. Sadly, Ivory dies early in the story and Silas honors him by using his friend's ashes to fertilize a new strain of cannabis he's developed. He goes to take the exams and smokes up before to take the edge off his nerves. He sees another fellow (Redman) doing the same thing. They realize they are kindred spirits, share a joint of the special weed together, and start taking the exams. The spirit of Ivory appears to them, tells them his spirit is called upon whenever the weed is smoked, sort of like a genie, and proceeds to tell them all of the correct answers on the exams. They ace the tests, and all the Ivy League colleges in the U.S. want them at their institutions since the push is on to accept students of color and these two happen to be, apparently, bona fide geniuses. So that's the set up. I'll say very little more since I refuse to be a spoiler. The bad guys in this film are the richy-rich elites of all races who refuse to accept the fact that a couple of guys from the ghetto are accepted for their smarts and money does not win. If I say anything else, it takes away from the awesome, screamingly hilarious situations that occur one after the other. It's the surprises that make this film work. I'd say if the filmmakers were inspired by anyone, it's Mel Brooks, Adam Sandler and of course Cheech and Chong. And since I stopped using marijuana quite a while ago, I don't know if it's better to see this movie stoned or straight. I'd say, see it straight first, then see it stoned. I think that would work OK.

"Highly Hilariously Funny Dope Film!"
Verified purchase
I remember Method Man & Redman had a TV series long ago but I never thought they made a movie together. As two stoners clash to get smarter in college. These two are great and hilariously funny. That one scene when they speak out to getting a student kicked off class. Great performances and roles by Method Man, Redman, Mike Epps, Fred Willard, Jeffrey Jones & Lark Voorhies. Highly recommended.

If you enjoy movies such as Cheech & Chong, Friday, Half Baked, and Dazed and Confused, than you'll probably love this movie. This movie is definetly not for everyone. If you have any objections with the smoking of marijuana, then you'd probably want to pass on this one. Somebody is smoking weed in over 75% of the movie. Method and Red fly high right into Harvard University, and maintain their grades by smoking weed. Great Comedy to sit down and just laugh your head off,always something crazy going on. not much for younger children in my opinion.

THIS was a throwback! Watched this for the first time in 2021! Damn! This came out in 2001. Same year as Dude Where's My Car which was my favorite movie back then. Man, I remember this whole vibe. That was the SCENE, son! Amazing movie. Silly and funny to the core. Love love love it. Recommended it to my 60 yo white parents. I am sure they will love it and are in for a treat ;)

I've seen the movie Friday and loved it. At the time the only movie I've seen rapstar Redman was in Seed of Chucky which I thought he was pretty good in that movie even though seed of chucky was one of my least favorite chucky movies. But once I've seen him and Method Man in this movie How High I really enjoyed watching it! I seem to like Redman in how high better than seed of chucky and I seem to like this movie as much as I like Friday ! On the other hand, I like redman in how high better than seed of chucky . If you are huge fan of method man and redman i totally recommend getting this movie.Other than that this is a good funny movie. Also get the soundtrack as well, I have that too !

How High
Verified purchase
This is how I imagine anyone would feel in college as someone who is being judged by their peers for smoking but also finding a group of friends that don't hate you for it. I was a bit confused by the title of the movie though since they are in college and not high school but then again it's about marijuana so I chilled out, rolled one, and didn't worry about a thing... The only thing I would want to change is that I wish Shorty from scary movie had made an appearance! :)

I love Method Man and Redman!

This is such a classic. I have seen this movie several times and it still makes me laugh like the first time. It's a little crude so this is not for the sensitive at heart. Absolutely love this movie!
