Movie Summary

Director:
Unknown
Released:
2012
Rating:
R
The day after soon-to-be valedictorian Henry Burke (Matt Bush of ADVENTURELAND, PIRANHA 3DD) takes a hit of the chronic for the first time, his school principal (Michael Chiklis of TV's THE SHIELD, FANTASTIC FOUR FRANCHISE) institutes a zero-tolerance drug policy and mandatory drug tests for all students. Henry has two options: fail and lose his college scholarship, or team up with his stoner friend Breaux (Sean Marquette of AMERICA'S SON, TV's THE 4400) to beat the system. They steal high-powered ganja from the appropriately named "Psycho Ed" (Adrien Brody of MIDNIGHT IN PARIS, KING KONG) and spike the school's bake-sale brownies, getting the whole school - faculty included - completely high. But with the student body starting to unhinge and a pissed-off Psycho Ed on their tails for stealing his stash, they must find a way to keep their half-baked plan from going up in smoke.
