High Road Blu-Ray Review


Synopsis: Directed by Matt Walsh, a co-founding member of world-renowned comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade, High Road showcases a totally improvised script about Glenn ''Fitz'' Fitzgerald (James F. Pumphrey), a young man whose loyalties are split among his band, his girlfriend Monica (Abby Elliott) and selling weed. After his band breaks up, Fitz finds himself dealing pot out of his garage and bonding with 16-year-old neighborhood kid Jimmy (Dylan O'Brien). As his former band mates (Zach Woods, Matt L. Jones, Lizzy Caplan) begin finding success and one of his drug deals goes awry, Fitz hits the road with Jimmy.  Amid car chases, guns, broken bones, sassy cabbies and a suspicious doctor (Horatio Sanz), Fitz has to navigate their way to safe harbor--and he doesn't even know about the surprise Monica has in store for him back home!

Review: High Road is a low-budget indie comedy about pot smoking, band playing idiots.  There is your simple explanation.  If you enjoy drug humor and complete morons, this one is for you.  I personally outgrew this genre in high school, but I know a lot of people still enjoy it.  There isn't anything original going on here, but the improv acting is solid and the comedy is definately there for those that dig it.

Interest Range: Comedy
