Award-winning commercial and music video director Jesse Dylan makes his feature film debut with "How High," which was written by Dustin Abraham and Brad Kaaya. Danny DeVito, Michael Shamberg, Stacey Sher, Shauna Garr and James Ellis are the producers; Pamela Abdy, Louis G. Friedman and Jonathan Weisgal are executive producers.
Redman and Method Man star as Jamal and Silas, two guys who smoke something magical, ace their college entrance exams and wind up at Harvard. Ivy League ways are strange, but Silas and Jamal take it in stride -- until their supply of supernatural smoke runs dry. That's when they have to start living by their wits and rely on their natural resources to make the grade.
"How High" features Lark Voorhies ("Saved by the Bell") as a conflicted coed, Fred Willard ("Best in Show") as the university chancellor, Mike Epps ("Next Friday") as an irritable pimp, Anna Maria Horsford ("Friday") as Jamal's tough-talking mother and Spalding Gray ("The Killing Fields") as a black studies professor. Rap group Cypress Hill appears as the house band at a campus party.
Method Man has previously appeared in films including "The Great White Hype," "Copland" and "Black & White," and was recently featured on HBO's "OZ." Redman makes his film debut in "How High." The two stars perform as a musical duo and as solo artists. Method Man is also a member of the Wu-Tang Clan.
Director Jesse Dylan's behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Francis Kenny ("Scary Movie"), production designer Clark Hunter ("All the Pretty Horses") and editor Larry Bock ("Bring It On").
A comedy for everybody old enough to know that lighting up is not the key to higher test scores, "How High" has not yet been rated by the MPAA. The film contains adult themes, and moviegoers are urged to consult http://www.filmratings.com when making viewing choices.
