Mac And Devin Go To Highschool – Movie Review
This is another film that I had seen a couple weeks ago and needed to get caught up on reviewing. Mac And Devin Go To Highschool is a comedy film released on July 3rd. The film is 75 minutes in duration and has a pretty good list of actors and actresses. The cast includes, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Mike Epps, Teairra Mari, Andy Milonakis, and a couple other famous actors / actresses. I’m not going to lie, this movie was pretty bad. I hate to have to give it such a bad review because throughout the 1990′s, Snoop Dogg was the man. Lately, his career has taken such a turn for the worse that I can’t even believe it is the same person.
Mac And Devin Go To Highschool really focuses on the High part of Highshcool. The entire film is basically a promotional film for marijuana. That isn’t really a big shock considering Snoop Dogg is in it but the way they go about the film is just cheesy. I am not saying this movie is bad just because of the use of weed… the movie How High which was released in 2001 and starred Method Man and Redman did a good job of making a funny movie, with a good plot. In Mac and Devin Go To Highschool, it feels like a movie made by some stoners who are still in Highschool. The jokes are not even funny, it is just blatant immature jokes. For instance, the vice principals name is Mr. Skinflute.
A couple times in the movie, it just breaks into a music video for Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg, I didn’t realize this was a musical. If you ever watched Beavis and Butthead the tv show on MTV, you will know how annoying this is. It has nothing to do with the movie and you have to sit through it wondering when it will end. The plot of this movie was so simple that the whole movie could have only been 30 minutes long. That is probably why the had to insert these little music video skits into the film just to drag out the duration.
I have put together a little test to help you decide if you should see this movie. If you smoke weed frequently, give yourself 1 point. If you are currently in highschool, give yourself 1 point. Now, if you scored a 2; I am guessing that you will probably like this movie. If you scored 1, there is a chance that you will enjoy the movie. If you scored 0, then definitely save your time and money and don’t even bother with this movie. I am not too surprised that Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa were in this film since they are both rappers and acting isn’t really their main talent. I am shocked though that Mike Epps would have allowed himself to be in Mac And Devin Go To Highschool. He is far better than this and deserves better roles, in better films.
Movie Rating: 2 out of 10
Rating Summary: I am giving Mac and Devin Go To Highschool a two out of ten because it has a decent cast, and even though the musical interludes in the film were annoying, the soundtrack is actually not bad. Only see this movie if you are in highschool, or are a stoner… or both.
