    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

    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

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