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.
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 !
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! :)

This movie definitely didn't disappoint! Surprisingly great acting that had excellent back-&-forth humor. This movie kept me laughing. One of the funniest parts in a movie I'v seen...is the wake-up, morning alarm that he conducted on his buddy that was in way deep sleep! You're gonna laugh like crazy at this part!
3.0 out of 5 starsWe all know this is a great movie but...

Ok so received this DVD. It’s a must watch, really funny. But as soon as I got the DvVD I put it in to watch it with my dad. The film was glitching, it was stopping. It was like buffering. If you gonna get this DVD, make sure you get the new one, because the used ones are crap.
5.0 out of 5 stars"Man, I love me a fat chick, man. More cushin' for the pushin'!"

Two guys by the name of Silas and Jamal decided to one day smoke something magical, which eventually helps them to ace their college entrance exam. This eventually lands them in Harvard, where they're surrounded by the world of Ivy Leaguers. Although their new lifestyle is much different from back home, they kept on having fun until their supernatural smoke runs out. Now, they are on their own and they have to rely on each other to survive.
5.0 out of 5 stars... this Film yet you are missing out it's so funny from Start till End

Classic film man if you have not seen this Film yet you are missing out it's so funny from Start till End. I recommend this to people who love comedy films about getting high also if you are massive fans of Method Man & Redman's music this film is four you.
i remember when friend of mine showed me this movie, at first i was skeptical about it but my reaction changed really fast. And even to this day there are really fun moments in which i cant stop laugh.
