What follows is a list that spans decades, from Blockbusters to more obscure films, I’m sure you’ll find something to enjoy! Break out the popcorn and bust out the weed, it time for BLG’s Top Stoner Movies!
Dazed and Confused
Widely regarded as the best High School Movies ever made, this classic film also gave rise to the career of one of Hollywoods most famous stoners, Matthew McCounagey. “Alright, alright, alrirght.”
While not being entirely about smoking weed, you can still practically smell it wafting from the screen in every segment (or maybe that’s just you…) Its candidly realistic portrayal of life in a 70’s Texas High school has resonated with audiences ever since and led to its status as one of the most funny Stoner Movies of all time. You can find this one on Netflix, so spark one up and throw it on!
Cheech and Chong Up In Smoke
While some of the younger readers won’t recognize these two, trust me when I say that Cheech and Chong literally INVENTED stoner comedy. Doing so at a time when Cannabis still existed on the fringe of society, this duo risked more bringing marijuana to the limelight compared to any other comedians in history. To this day their names remain synonymous with the state of being stoned. Cheech and Chong, we salute you.
That all being said, this is ridiculous comedy is jam packed with off colour racial humor, wacky drug references and way too much shag carpet. It is truly a product of its times and should be enjoyed as such. Clean out your bong and prepare to enjoy this funny stoner movie. Aged to perfection, it may be the perfect 1970’s cheese you’re looking for.
Dave Chappelle’s allegiance to weed is no secret, but his true colours were definitely shown when he released this funny stoner movie back in 1998. Filled with classic moments “If I wasn’t from Jamaica, why would I be wearing dis hat?”, to this day, Half Baked remains a top pick for any Sunday sesh.
Without giving away too much, it basically revolves around Chapelle and his dimwitted cohorts selling weed to get their friend out of jail. Hilarity obviously ensues. This is easily one of the best stoner movies of all time. Do yourself a favor, light a doob and throw this on the tube.
Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny
The only musical buddy comedy on this list, Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny absolutely had to be included on any list of the Best Stoner Movies. No doubt drawing some inspiration from the aforementioned, musical comedy double act Cheech and Chong, Tenacious D brought musical stoner comedy into the 21’st century with their hilarious songs, some of which are still being screamed into Karaoke bar microphones to this day.
Focusing on their quest to “Pay the rent with their Rock”, The Pick of Destiny is one of the top stoner movies ever made. Featuring Cameos from legends Dave Grohl, Ronnie James Dio and Meatloaf, this movie is an essential part of anyone’s rock musical education, and if you’ve never seen it, do yourself a favor and throw it on right now.
The Big Lebowski
Gracing the top 100 lists of practically every movie rating website, this classic can truly be called a good stoner movie. Jeff Bridges phenomenal performance as The Dude is the centerpiece of this cult classic. He’s the burnout uncle we all wish we had, a robe wearing, roach smoking zen master, who’s cool yet chaotic handling of some bizarre circumstances makes up the plot of this 1998 film.
Once again not centering entirely around smoking pot, the stoner identity is masterfully embodied by Bridges in this film and serves as the entire underpinning of what exactly makes this film funny. With great performances by John Goodman and Steve Buscemi, if you haven’t seen it already, do yourself a favor.
Now that you got some classics to burn through, spark up your favourite strain from Buy Low Green and enjoy the Best Stoner Movies.
