What are the best stoner movies? That depends entirely on who you ask.
Stoner movies aren’t a new phenomenon by any stretch of the imagination, but there are some films stoners love more than others. Personally, we all have our favourite movies about weed, and there will be a number of you who completely hate this list. That’s okay! Share with us your 13 favourite stoner movies.
13. Super High Me
We’re kicking off our list of the 13 best stoner movies with a well-regarded documentary that explores what happens when someone stops smoking pot for 30 days and then smokes every day for 30 days. It’s a pretty compelling watch, but not while you’re high.
12. Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas
Controversial? Maybe, but this was the last movie Johnny Depp was in that didn’t make me want to throw myself out of my one-story window.
11. A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas
There needs to be more weed in this movie, but the fact that Neil Patrick Harris stuck to the same character throughout the film franchise, even after he came out, is incredible enough that I couldn’t leave it off the list of the best stoner movies ever.
I consider Ted a borderline stoner movie. It is a late bloomer’s coming of age story if anything. But, when you’re high as f***, Ted is funny as shit. I think we can all related to feeling a bit like a loser sometimes.
9. Pineapple Express
There’s less here about weed culture than all of the films ranked high on our list of the best stoner movies, but it’s f***ing hilarious and when the f*** is a sequel coming out? I need more of this in my life.
8. Next Friday
Others would rank this stoner film higher on the list, but I think this is fair. I don’t consider it as good of a sequel as I do Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay. Sorry but not sorry, the movie missed Chris Tucker.
7. Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay
George W. Bush smokes weed in this movie, and a character actually said “cockmeat sandwich.” What isn’t to love?
6. Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle
If you’ve never had the munchies with a specific craving in mind, you can’t comprehend what someone will do to fill that craving. If I smoke after midnight, I have to get Taco Bell. Nothing I can do. I understand this epic stoner movie.
5. How High
How High makes smoking look as enjoyable as it is, in my opinion. If cannabis needed a sales pitch, How High has it covered.
4. Dazed and Confused
This is just a great film. I remember watching it with my mom’s cousin when I was about ten years old, and he told me, “one day, this shit is going to change your life.” How right he was. <3
This isn’t just a stoner movie; this is a classic.
3. Half Baked
In any other context, Half Baked would be a complete shitshow of a movie, but it is perfect for stoners. It gets the best parts of weed culture right, and that’s all that matters.
2. Up in Smoke
I can feel the hate already! Yes, Up in Smoke isn’t number one, and I don’t care if you don’t agree (that’s a lie, please like me). Maybe I find the humour stale, or I’m just too uptight, but I can’t justify this film as the best of the best. It serves a crucial role in weed culture, but it isn’t the best stoner movie of all time.
This is going to be a controversial choice for the best stoner movie, but Friday was a damn fine film in its own right, and that helps it reach the top of this list. It is the best stoner movie of all-time.
