Some of the films on this list are among the greatest of all time and feature celebrity stoners in the film industry. Read on for our carefully selected top 10 greatest pothead cinema works.
Pineapple Express (2008)
Pineapple Express is, without doubt, one of the best movies for stoners. Seth Rogen visits James Franco, his dealer and gets a ‘Pineapple Express’, which is a new rare delicacy. Smoking it is almost a shame, as it is like one of the most unique things you can imagine. The experience can be likened to killing a unicorn with a bomb, literally. Besides, it is also full of adventures.
Most exciting moment: Rogen and Franco plan to hide out in the woods as the killers are on their trail. In their hideout, they can’t even dial their cellphones right as the place is full of darkness. “I’m scared of this darkness!” says Rogen. “I surrender!”
- Pros: suspense, tells the cannabis story, has a superb cast
- Cons: not tech savvy
TED is another great movie created by the director of Family Guy, Seth MacFarlane. The ultimate unrealistic stoner movie features a bone hitting teddy bear (profane), known as “Ted.” His Derelict bear continually drags is best friend John Bennett and pisses Lori Collins (his girlfriend) off. Watching the events unfold and the interchange between the two characters with Bostonian-accent is extremely hysterical.
- Pros: Surreal
- Cons: Cast
A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas (2011)
Is there a more creative way, filmmakers to merge weed with Christmas cheer? A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas features the kind of sophomoric wit that makes it a top stoner comedy in years with Santa Claus blessing fellas with a blunt the size of Shake Weight. Moreover, the movie boasts of the most ridiculously amazing 3D technology uses.
- Pros: tells the weed story
- Cons: Super technology
This is the End (2013)
Released in 2013, the movie is a jab about a bunch of self-righteous, baked actors that play “themselves.” The plot of this hilarious movie features Craig Robinson singing alongside Rihanna, “take your panties off”, Jonah Hill’s disturbing but comical exorcism and Aziz Azari being kicked down a fiery pit of death by Kevin Hart.
- Pros: Super cast, comical
- Cons: lacks suspense
How High (2001)
How High is an awfully entertaining comedy that features two famous actors, Redman and Method Man who star in the movie as the blunt-smoking rappers. The movie is a story of two smokers who ace their entrance exams in Harvard with the help of a nerdy friend and blaze the place with celebration.
“How did I fail Women’s Studies? I love bitches!” This is after discovering a new kind of chronic that makes them geniuses. Redman and Method Man come up with a plan to fertilize their weed crop using the ashes of their dead friend. After running out of their stash, they exhume John Quincy Adams’ body and smoke his bones, which is the most exciting part for any stoner.
- Pros: super cast, surreal, suspense, tells the weed story
- Cons: Not tech savvy
Soul Plane (2004)
Soul Plane is another great weed movie that features Snoop Dogg who stars as Captain Mark. With a weed-and-shrooms diet, Snoop Dogg flies the friendly skies as a pilot of the airborne hooptie. Captain Antione Mack, speaking, “this is your soul-plane chauffeur. Welcome to aboard to NWA Flight 069 from the 310 to the 212. We are higher than Redman at the Source Awards!”
However, the funniest part is when Snoop suffers a drug-induced coma that leaves the crew wondering whether he is really dead.
- Pros: tells the cannabis story, super cast
- Cons: not surreal
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)
If there is any other movie that is enjoyable to watch, especially through a hash of some quality kush is “Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back.” The Kevin Smith who is the director has created a flick about two slacker friends and the best part of the movie is the Ben Affleck Cameo. This top movie for stoners but we must admit that the plot is barely strung together.
- Pros: Comical
- Cons: thin plot
Dude, Where’s My Car? (2000)
This is a slightly funny movie, but a real hit for stoners. Seann William Scott and Ashton Kutcher lose Kutcher’s car instead of losing their best friend. While trippin’ out on their wild night, they get the dumbest tattoos. Apart from being an interesting movie for stoners, it also shows that drugs will make you do dumb things.
- Pros: Tells the cannabis story
- Cons: no super cast
Super High Me (2007)
The movie follows the journey of comedian Doug Benson who is a stoner on his 30 days of sobriety and 30 days of smoking on a daily basis. Before and after the journey, he undergoes a test that includes SATs and psychic ability.
- Pros: tells the cannabis story
- Cons: no suspense
Grandma’s Boy (2006)
Grandma’s Boy features a borderline freakshow genius who enjoys video games, taking an insane amount of weed and calls people “turd nuggets.” Whoa, without forgetting that the guy enjoys being intimate with old women. “I can’t believe you came on mom” is the most amazing line for a stoner.
- Pros: tech-savvy
- Cons: no super cast
And the winner is
Pineapple Express is the winner because of how well it tells the story of the popular cannabis strain “Pineapple Express.” The suspense is tangible, events surreal and the laughter palpable. Moreover, the cast is super!
