    Doesn't look like a movie somebody made. It looks like a movie somebody hallucinated and put up on the screen. show more

    Enough low-grade laughs to entertain significantly more than some of the more prestigious year-end releases. show more

    Dylan's stoner comedy barely manages to string together a story, but lucky for him, his two stars radiate charisma even when they're hidden behind clouds of smoke. show more

    Like Ice Cube's "Friday," How High probably will survive as an underground classic, until it's pushed further underground and forgotten by the next disposable "cult classic" to hit video. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    The Observer won't let me get stoned before a review, so I'll never know what How High would be like after a big fat blunt. Without one, it's sloppy, broadly funny in spots and chaotic. show more

    How High is not a particularly good movie, but then again it's not trying to be. It's a project by two B-list rappers seeking to extend their music careers in the way of stars like Will Smith, Ice Cube and Tupac Shakur. show more

    Joan Anderman Boston Globe

    The biggest problem, ironically, is that even though the plot and the action center on smoking pot, it's not enough of a stoner flick. The concept of getting stoned isn't amusing; watching stoned people is. show more

    Chris Kaltenbach Baltimore Sun

    Method Man and Redman just don't have the comic timing to pull off 90 minutes at front-and-center. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    This mess was directed with no skill whatsoever by Jesse Dylan, whose father, Bob, once urged us all to get stoned. show more

    Steve Simels TV Guide

    It's a good thing the two rappers are such utterly natural actors, armed with terrific comic timing. show more
