It's exactly what it appears to be: a funny-enough stoner comedy with a likable cast.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
High School is a pun. Get it? This is one of those stoner comedies that may be funny if you're high - but if not, not.

The nearly unrecognizable Chiklis almost single-handedly saves the day.

High School rushes through the parts it should savor and then pads out its runtime with filler elsewhere - and, less forgivably, it doesn't make getting high look like fun.

USA Today

By Scott Bowles
Filmmakers must have been tripping pretty badly when they made High School, a flub that's about as lucid as a stoner at a spelling bee.

As sure as marijuana gets you high, you can count on weed-themed comedies cropping up every few years, each hoping to become a stoner-classic staple--a fate to which High School falls far short of achieving.

Austin Chronicle

By Marjorie Baumgarten
Instead of putting the high in high school, this film is the kind of drug movie that gives pot smokers a bad name.
