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

Enough cheery mockery to amuse even non-tokers.

Charlotte Observer

By Lawrence Toppman
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.

Chicago Tribune

By Robert K. Elder
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.

New York Daily News

By Elizabeth Weitzman
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.

Boston Globe

By Joan Anderman
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.

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

Miami Herald

By Charles Savage
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.

New York Post

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

San Francisco Chronicle

By Bob Graham
Doesn't look like a movie somebody made. It looks like a movie somebody hallucinated and put up on the screen.
