Since today is 4/20 day I was thinking of reviewing How High, I recently saw this on the TBS app a few months ago to refresh my memory of this movie. Feels like Method Man and Redman just made this as an excuse to be in a movie, they later did a TV show on FOX but it was canceled for some reason, like most shows on FOX.
The story is about this dealer guy who’s friend wants him to go to college for some reason. After the dealer guys friend dies he accepts going to college as his last wish. At first I didn’t know who was Method Man or Redman in this since I wasn’t a fan of their music at the time. Also I didn’t know they were Wu-Tang Clan and Wu-Tang Clan an’t nothing to mess with. The name Wu-Tang was named after a sect of Kung-Fu and these rappers watched those kind of movies growing up.
There’s also this story of how the dealer guy meets this other guy and how they both think they smoked this magic marijuana, though it’s probably just luck. In this movie it felt like I was watching black Cheech and Chong, and if they were in college. Most of the movie feels like just them getting high all the time and winning by a miracle. Also heard this movie is getting a sequel but it probably won’t be as good as the original and might just be a in name only sequel.
I’m not against getting high I just worry a bit that people get high at the expense of others. or like it so much they try other drugs and go crazy. Anyway this movie seems to be a cult hit as far as the Rotten Tomatoes score shows for the audience. Watch it and see what you think.
