|High school buddies Matt Bush and Sean Marquette have a problem: beating the school’s new zero tolerance drug test. So they get the whole school stoned.|
A film being billed as “the ultimate stoner comedy,” High School, will be released in theaters nationwide on June 1.
Starring Adrien Brody, Sean Marquette, Matt Bush, Colin Hanks and Michael Chiklis, High School introduces us to soon-to-be valedictorian Henry Burke (Matt Bush). The day after Henry takes a hit of the chronic for the first time, his high school principal (Michael Chiklis) institutes a zero tolerance drug policy and gives a mandatory drug test to all students.
|Henry and Breaux manage to get pissed-off drug dealer Psycho Ed (Adrian Brody, center) on their asses for stealing his stash|
Henry has two options—fail and lose his college scholarship, or team up with his stoner friend Breaux (Sean Marquette) to beat the system. They steal some high powered ganja from law student turned drug dealer Psycho Ed (Adrien Brody) and spike the school’s bake sale brownies, getting the whole school—faculty included—completely stoned out of their minds.
But with the student body getting higher and higher with every brownie—and a pissed-off Psycho Ed on their asses for stealing his stash—they must find a way to keep their half-baked plan from going up in smoke.
This film has “cult following” written all over it, with devoted stoners likely to quoting its funniest lines for years to come. And with marijuana’s new mainstream status, it could transcend the stoner cult film genre and break big in the mass market.
Directed by John Stalberg, Jr., with story by Stalberg and Eric Linthorst, and screenplay by Eric Linthorst and Stalberg, High School also features Colin Hanks, Adhir Kalyan and Yeardley Smith.
