MOVIE MADNESS #70: HIGH SCHOOL

If you love stoner comedies than this is a must see for you!

Travis, the biggest stoner in school makes friends with Henry, a would-be valedictorian and they smoke a joint together.

The next day they find out their fascist principal (Michael Chiklis) has instituted a drug screening for all the high school students. If Henry dings positive for drugs he will lose his MIT scholarship.

So together they devise a plan to get the whole school high so that everyone will fail their drug test.

Adrien Brody steals the movie as the drug dealer Psycho Ed. Once again Brody has no qualms about throwing himself into a role completely.

His character is covered head to tail in tattoos, braided hair and such an amazing look in his eye. He is incredible to watch even in a light comedy like this. The man can do anything.

Michael Chiklis is almost unrecognizable as the extremely anal principal. He’s very much like Jeffrey Jones’s Ed Rooney from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off except maybe crazier.

The movie really is a gem for the stoner comedy genre with classic movies like “Dazed & Confused” and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High”.
