It’s the end of the school year, and smarmy Principal Gordon of Morgan High School has suddenly instituted a zero-tolerance crusade against his nemesis, the reviled marijuana. A mandatory drug test for all students is to be administered, failure of which will result in immediate expulsion. Normally, this would be of no consequence to straightarrow valedictorian Henry, except he just tried ganja for the very first time. With his college scholarship hanging in the balance, Henry begrudgingly teams up with charismatic pothead Travis to do the only thing they can think of to neutralize this threat – get the entire student body stoned.
In his debut feature, director/co-writer John Stalberg percolates his deliriously manic narrative with sparkling energy and deviant characters, joyously ramming his protagonists deeper and deeper into frenzied chaos. High School paints its slacker wit with lush broad strokes, firmly accomplishing the conclusive stoner fantasia run hilariously amuck. (Landon Zakheim)
