MOVIE REVIEW: Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa’s “Mac And Devin Go To High School”

Wiz Khalifa and Snoop Dogg’s on-screen collaboration Mac and Devin Go to High School hits DVD today (July 3) – and there is a reason why this movie went straight-to-DVD.

When Slow Burn, a CGI-animated “joint” voiced by rapper Mystikal, proclaims at the film’s opening that “you can’t watch this movie without no weed,” viewers should pretty much know what they’re in for. Unfortunately, no amount of marijuana (or any substance, for that matter) could make this film good.

The story, or lack thereof, is as follows: Mac (Snoop Dogg) is a 15-year senior at N. Hale High School, while Devin (Wiz Khalifa) is a soon-to-be valedictorian destined for an Ivy League school upon graduation. A smoking-hot teacher, played by Teairra Mari, is ultimately the reason why the stars’ worlds collide, as Mac gives his all to finally graduating and Devin tries to get the ‘A’ he’s looking for, while simultaneously experiencing some of the finer green things in life, thanks to Snoop and his many strands of herb.

While there is no doubt that either of the flick’s stars were attempting to win themselves an Oscar, a little effort into trying to be believable actors would have been greatly appreciated. To its credit, Mac and Devin Go to High School is, however, chock-full of cameos from the likes of Mike Epps, Far East Movement, YG, Tyga, Bishop Don Magic Juan, Andy Milonakis, Affion Crockett, and more. Yet, none of these personalities did much to lift the film up.

There’s no other way to say this except Mac and Devin Go to High School is bad – plain and simple. The on-screen collaboration between these two Hip-Hop heavyweights is a joke, and for their sakes, hopefully a joke that they and everyone involved with Mac and Devin were in on. At the end of the day, the only thing that Mac and Devin Go to High School proves is that we need How High 2, and we need it bad!

Rating 3/10

    if you expected this movie to be good in any way possible you must literally ONLY listen to hip hop all day long and do nothing with your life that doesnt have to do with hip hop. bad hip hop at that.

      It’s funny how you wasted time just to say it was a bad movie. Oh, and future reference, learn how to actually pay attention to details when you read an article or in this case a critique.

      On a whole another note, I personally enjoyed the movie..I won’t deny the fact that it was not well-organized and the directing was pretty bad but it was good. Oh, and I’m currently in college working my way up to become a RN and I listen to metal, rap, hip hop, pop, ska, deathcore, etc.

      I only wasted my time personally because I’m doing an evaluation paper of critiques of this movie. ^_^
