Whether you plan to celebrate 4/20 in an interesting way or you just want to chill or enhance your mind on an ordinary day while doing marijuana, doing a movie marathon is a great way to spend time while on a good high. Good thing that you have lots of options when it comes to the best movies to watch while smoking weed.
There are movies here that you may not be interested in when you’re sober, but trust us when we say these stoner movies are absolutely fun to watch when you’re high, especially on best quality weed.
Movies To Watch When You’re High
Here’s a generous compilation of stoner cinema gems that will make you laugh or cry, or both, depending on the kind of high that you’re in. So hit that weed, grab your favorite munchies (make loads of them), and enjoy these best stoner movies.
Harold And Kumar Go To White Castle
The titular characters played by John Cho and Kal Penn go on a quest for burgers and marijuana buds throughout New Jersey. The pair make some serious self-discoveries while they are at it. The film is not just about stoner friendship and humor, but it also challenges Asian stereotypes as well.
Harold And Kumar Go To White Castle wasn’t initially a commercial hit, but it did cultivate a cult following. Slowly but surely, it became a hit on DVD. It found an audience considerable enough to develop two sequels: Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay and A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas.
Anna Faris is at her element in this indie comedy about a perma-stoned actress who helps herself to her roommate’s cupcakes, only to discover that they are baked with pot. While tripping out of her mind, she tries to make it through the rest of her day, which got her into an acting audition, stealing a copy of the Communist Manifesto accidentally, and cooking her mobile phone in weed butter.
Remember the bad Quaaludes scene from The Wolf of Wall Street? Smiley Face is like a feature-length adaptation of that.
Co-written by Dave Chappelle and Neal Brennan, this 1998 stoner comedy was also one of those movies that disappointed commercially but later became a cult classic. Starring Chappelle, Guillermo Diaz, Harland Williams, and Jim Breuer, it’s about stoner pals who got into trouble with the law and the local drug dealers.
The film also has appearances by stars such as Jon Stewart, Snoop Dogg, Bob Saget, Tommy Chong, and Willie Nelson.
2001: Space Odyssey
This is a classic must-watch, and the experience is made even better if you’re stoned out of your mind. This adventure sci-fi film is about the discovery of a monolith on Earth, which gave birth to an adventure attempting to discover what it means, how it got there, and who placed it there. With edibles, it’s an ultimate mind-trip. It is one of those movies that will make you question whether the events of the movie can actually happen in real life.
Some consider Pineapple Express as a magnum opus of Seth Rogen regarding his favorite subject. Rogen plays Dave, a process server who was given a joint of a very rare strain of marijuana called, yep, Pineapple Express. James Franco plays his dealer.
Part stoner comedy and part action film, Pineapple Express is punctuated by weed-based antics that got them into fun and trouble.
One of the best movies ever, which you should watch sober or stoned. The 1999 film is consistently included in a lot of people’s top movies list. This mind-blowing, plot twist of a movie stars Brad Pitt and Edward Norton, a duo bored with their lives and decided to start an underground fight club, along with other men who are in the same state of mind as the pair.
The Fifth Element
In most cases, smoking weed before watching a movie can make it more dramatic or hilarious, or even just tolerable. in the case of The Fifth Element, smoking weed will help you keep up with the visual and storytelling delight – an orange-haired alien goddess savior ends up in Planet Earth and gets saved by a life-weary, New York City cabbie. One couldn’t help but assume that director Luc Besson himself was stoned while making the movie.
Alice In Wonderland
To say that the 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland is a trip has got to be an understatement. With the proven trio of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham-Carter, and director Tim Burton, one would expect nothing less. Burton’s trademark style gave the Disney classic a dark and creepy twist.
Dazed And Confused
This classic coming-of-age comedy is where Matthew McConaughey started to become someone to watch in Hollywood. The characters in this movie look like they indulged themselves with the bong before they went into shooting.
The 1970s aesthetic is definitely easy on the eyes too. Aside from McConaughey, the young, stellar cast includes Ben Affleck, Parker Posey, and Milla Jovovich.
You gotta give it to the Wayans Brothers to spoof a classic slasher film and make it into a pop culture phenomenon. Filled with pop culture references, crude humor, and gross-out gags, Scary Movie is unquestionably entertaining as hell. Marlon Wayans and Anna Faris were comedy gold in this film.
Speaking of pop culture classics, Tina Fey’s undying comedy Mean Girls is a go-to if you just want something light and funny. It stars Lindsay Lohan’s Cody Heron, and Rachel McAdams’ Regina George became timeless characters in this high school clique comedy.
It’s a movie that can make anyone who has ever had it bad during high school relate. Stop trying to make fetch happen!
The Big Lebowski
This is regarded by many as the best that the Coen Brothers have made and perhaps the best stoner movie about an actual stoner, The Big Lebowski stars Jeff Bridges in an iconic role as “The Dude,” a chill bowling bro who got involved in a case of mistaken identity and extortion and kidnapping plot.
The supporting cast of John Goodman and Steve Buscemi made the film even better. The Dude’s character is stoned almost all throughout the movie, which is only even funnier.
The Grand Budapest Hotel
Watching any Wes Anderson film while you’re high is entertainment guaranteed. This screwball opus is a visual feast of pinks, purples, and mauves that serve as a background to a story of a hotel concierge (Ralph Fiennes) who is accused of murder. Not only is the film very gorgeous to look at, but it’s also very funny, and very arch.
The Matrix Revolutions
You may think we’re nuts for recommending the last and some say the worst of the Matrix trilogy of movies, but listen, the fight scenes and the visual effects are definitely worth watching especially when you’re high.
We’re talking about that scene where Neo and Smith fly at each other and fight in the pouring rain, in slow motion. And after all that slow kung-fu, it culminated in Neo destroying all the Smiths from within? Grab some weed and just do it.
Wreck It Ralph
Watching a video game movie while on a high is trippy indeed and Wreck It Ralph is just the right film for it. It’s about video game characters that can travel from one video game to another through wires., but with a condition – they must get back to their home games by the time the arcade opens or else their games become glitchy. The awesome computer animation will blow your mind, which is a video game/nerd’s fever dream.
Watching Interstellar when you’re not high will already make you feel like you’re floating around in space. So imagine how it would feel if you were actually stoned. Interstellar is another excellent Matthew McConaughey film, which is about a man leaving his family behind to explore a wormhole in space that can help them save life on Earth.
The Hangover and its two succeeding movies are just the perfect stoner movie marathon series. You’re definitely in for loads of laughs in this bachelor-party-gone-wrong movie trilogy starring Bradley Cooper, Zak Galifianakis, Ed Helms, and Justin Bartha, plus a hilarious supporting cast of Ken Jeong and Mike Tyson himself.
Silas (Method Man) and Jamal (Redman) smoke marijuana that sprouted from the ashes of their dead friend, Ivory. Ivory reveals the answers to the pair’s THC exam (something like the SAT exam), which made them pass their test with flying colors, thus landing them in Harvard.
The trouble starts when they are already struggling to maintain their grades in their Ivy League university and they are already running out of Ivory-fertilized weed to get them through. In their desperation, they decided to dig out President John Quincy Adams’s body so that they can smoke his remains and become smart again.
If this is not the perfect comedy stoner movie plot, we don’t know what is. Smoking your dead friend’s ashes may not be your trip, but there are other ways to consume cannabis.
This 1995 film starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker was such a hit with both critics and audiences that it spawned two sequels – Next Friday and Friday After Next. It also led to the making of Friday: The Animated Series and launched the ageless “Bye Felicia” meme. Friday is about the pair trying to come up with $200 to pay their dealer.
Ice Cube was one of the film’s co-writers and the idea for the movie was made while they were in a recording session, getting high.
Super High Me
Inspired by the documentary Super Size Me, Super High Me is about a man who went through an experiment similar to the one in the controversial film, but instead of fast food, he smoked a bunch of weed for a month straight. Starring Doug Benson, the movie also features Sarah Silverman, Zach Galifianakis, and Bob Odenkirk, as well as some doctors, activists, and politicians.
True Romance stars Christian Slater and Patricia Arquette as a pair who is running away from the Mafia, and also has Brad Pitt, who plays a stoner named Floyd. He admitted later on that his role in the flick (written by Quentin Tarantino) was a little like art imitating life – he actually requested to be in the movie and improvised a lot of his lines.
In fact, Pitt’s improvisation for the movie was so iconic that it was said to inspire The Pineapple Express.
Brenda Blethyn stars in this 2000 weed buddy comedy about a widow with a green thumb. In order to recover from her ruined finances (her late husband’s fault), she assists her gardener (played by Craig Ferguson) in growing a cannabis farm in her greenhouse.
We’re talking about the 1982 version here, which was inspired by a 2D table tennis arcade game demo. The neon-lit environment of the film is just perfect for watching while high on weed, and hey, the story is not bad too – Jeff Bridges is involved in industrial espionage and rides around on his light cycle. No wonder it’s second to Blade Runner as the most ripped-off science fiction movie of them all.
