Riding on some serious Sundance buzz, John Stalberg’s stoner comedy High School tells the story of a control-freak small town high school principal (an unrecognizably plump Michael Chiklis) who decides to institute mandatory drug testing for all students. This zero-tolerance policy becomes a problem for the high school valedictorian (Matt Bush), who has just recently tried marijuana for the first time. So he decides to get his entire class high.
The teaser is sparse save for Adrien Brody’s creepy sing-song cataloging of all the people in the community that he’s fucked. (He plays a paranoid drug dealer.) That said, it’s been way too long since we’ve seen a solid stone comedy. Maybe 2007’s Smiley Face? September can’t come soon enough.
