The Best Stoner Movies To Watch This 4/20

Blessed are the blazed.

However you celebrate 4/20, it’s only a matter of time until you’re sitting on someone’s couch deciding what to watch. Whether it’s a classic stoner movie, an edge-of-your-seat thriller, or a relaxing nature documentary, we’ve got you covered on this high holiday. Ahead, the best movies to watch when you’re stoned out of your mind.

Friday (1995)

If you’ve ever said “Bye, Felicia!” you are legally obligated to watch this film. 4/20 doesn’t have to be on a Friday — Friday is a state of mind. (Cinemax)

Perfect Blue (1997)

Yeah, we’re choosing violence with this one. Perfect Blue follows Mima, a pop star whose pivot to acting descends into a psychological thriller about fame, obsession, and identity that will make your stoned head spin. (YouTube)

Dude, Where’s My Car? (2000)

A buddy comedy about two stoner himbos and their missing vehicle. Film used to mean something back in the day! (Cinemax)

Grandma’s Boy (2006)

A game-tester in his mid-30s moves in with his grandma in this classic stoner-fodder comedy. (YouTube)

Paprika (2006)

Real heads know about the original twisted dream thriller. And before you start with us, Inception lifted 90 percent of its plot from this film! The titular Paprika is a therapist who must save the world when a machine that allows therapists to enter the dreams of their patients is stolen. It’s already fairly trippy based on premise alone, so throw in some wild animation and THC, and you’ve got a party on your hands. (Vudu, Amazon Prime)

Smiley Face (2007)

Director Gregg Araki struck comedic gold with Anna Faris, who plays a dysfunctional stoner actress trying to get through a busy day. Already fairly blazed, she further derails her plans by accidentally eating her roommate’s pot cupcakes and embarks on a rambling and funny as hell adventure through Los Angeles. (Tubi, Vudu)

Pineapple Express (2008)

One of the most defining and successful stoner comedies of the aughts follows a stoner and his dealer on the lam from a local drug lord. (Vudu, Amazon Prime)

Our Planet (2019)

If you’ve never watched a David Attenborough nature documentary whilst stoned out of your mind, you haven’t experienced getting high in its most blissful form. (Netflix)
