Blu-ray Review: MAC & DEVIN GO TO HIGH SCHOOL
In MAC & DEVIN GO TO HIGH SCHOOL we meet valedictorian hopeful Devin Overstreet (Wiz Khalifa) who is definitely the quiet, nerdy type in the beginning. He’s having a little trouble writing his graduation speech because he realizes all his academic over achievements have left him with little to no life experiences.
What happens is Devin meets up with Mac Johnson (Snoop Dogg), the least achieving student on campus. You see, Mac is a 15-year senior and consummate ladies man and a huge party animal, big surprise, right!
Mac also becomes “highly” infatuated with the new sub teacher and decides to try and clean up his act just a little and finally graduate from school. The two team up and become quick friends, teachers and students and in 3 weeks time, Mac must cram four years of high school academics, and Devin must cram four years of teenage experience. Ultimately the two succeed in this stoner buddy comedy for a new generation.
There are some great trippy scenes included all through the movie that includes the movie’s mascot which is a talking joint that is here to educate all of us and some cheesy animation that are great additions to certain scenes! Great additions to an already cool comedy.
Ok, this new party movie totally reminds me of movies like Animal House, Dazed and Confused, The Stoned Age, Half Baked and the Friday movies,heck Mike Epps is even in this movie and is as funny as ever! I have to give Andy Milonakis a quick shout out as well because he has a few scenes stealers in the movie! Snoop is the heart and soul of the movie because he not only stars in it bu he’s the Executive Producer, music supervisor, and chief financier. Say what you want but the guy can make things happen and is as business savvy as they come!
Bottom line is MAC & DEVIN GO TO HIGH SCHOOL isn’t for everybody but the party animals out there are going to love it! The Mac & Devin Go to High School [Blu-ray] releases on Tuesday, July 3rd.
