Truthfully, I feel a little old to be laughing at a restricted trailer for a stoner comedy, especially one that bears the title “High School”. Granted, I’m a pretty big fan of “Pineapple Express”, though this is due in part to the snazzy Daewoo reference situated towards the end of the picture. But, I digress. From what I’ve read on other sites, “High School” is supposedly in the grand tradition of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. However, judging from the trailer embedded below, I can’t see the correlation. Go figure. At any rate, the preview is pretty funny, and Brody’s expletive-laden narration is worth every second.
Here’s what it’s all about:
A high school valedictorian who gets baked with the local stoner finds himself the subject of a drug test. The situation causes him to concoct an ambitious plan to get his entire graduating class to face the same fate, and fail.
In theory, hilarity should ensue. I guess we’ll see how well “High School” works with the masses when it hits the theatrical bong later this year. In the meantime, burn a few brain cells on the trailer we’ve rolled for you. Just don’t screw up the rotation, ya dig? Via Myspace.
