What Are The Top Stoner Movies Of All Time?

I have been browsing movie websites, and I have come across several ‘top stoner movies of all time’ lists. From High Times to Amazon, it seems that there is a bit of variation. Something can be number 1 on one list, yet number 9 on another. Here is my personal top ten list. I let Ninjasmoker put in his comments to give a different perspective. Load up your bong and take a look. Post your comments on what your top movies are and why:

1. Half Baked (1998)

Johnny Green: This movie is solid. I will never forget when I got really high and watched Half Baked for the first time. Where can I get a giant sized Abba Zabba?

Ninjasmoker: The first time I watched this movie, I came out of the movie theater and actually felt higher then when I came in.



2. Up in Smoke (1978)

Johnny Green: This movie could have easily been number 1, and probably should be. The hitchhiker scene at the beginning is legendary. ‘I even smoked that tied stick…You know, that stuff that is tied to a stick.’

Ninjasmoker: I watch this movie once a week just to keep it real.



3. Super High Me (2007)

Johnny Green: It’s a documentary about weed, made by a former ‘Stoner of the Year,’ current comedian Doug Benson. It even has a cameo by Marc Emery. I think it will be more revered as time goes on.

Ninjasmoker: Even non smokers like it.



4. Pineapple Express (2008)

Johnny Green: Like Ninjasmoker said when I showed him the list, ‘The cross joint and the term ‘lingerer” are a part of everyday vocabulary for stoners across the world thanks to this movie. Is there a Ted Jones in your area??

Ninjasmoker: You know when it is advertised as a “Marijuana Action Movie,” great things will come.



5. Saving Grace (2000)

Johnny Green: This movie is dedicated to weed, and is extremely funny. Some people might hate on this movie because they haven’t seen it, but give it a shot, I guarantee you will laugh.

Ninjasmoker: Johnny has always loved this movie. His will is strong.



6. Grandma’s Boy (2006)

Johnny Green: This movie incorporates weed, video games, comedy, great weed names, and just about everything else a stoner would love.

Ninjasmoker: I still call my bong a smoking lamp.



7. Dazed and Confused (1993)

Johnny Green: ‘You got a joint?…It would be a lot cooler if you did’

Ninjasmoker: I agree!



8. Easy Rider (1969)

Johnny Green: I apologize ahead of time to people that thought that this should be higher on my list. I understand that they smoked real weed in this movie, and I think that is super kick ass. However, I am from the MTV generation, so I don’t have the same cult love for this movie as my baby boomer counterparts. Again, I apologize; feel free to critique these choices.

Ninjasmoker: Good movie, just faded by time.



9. The Big Lebowski (1998)

Johnny Green: Although this movie is really about bowling, The Dude is revered by stoners throughout the world and probably even outer space. All weed smokers love this movie, yet I don’t know any bowlers that like this movie, isn’t that ironic??

Ninjasmoker: This one is questionable but why argue with greatness. Just don’t know if it is top-ten material.



10. Friday (1995)

Johnny Green: The premise of this movie is there is a guy named Worm, who floated some weed to a guy named Smokey, who just so happens to introduce the chronic to Ice Cube. Add to it a killer soundtrack, and you have a recipe for stoner movie success.

Ninjasmoker: This should be higher. It was one of the best of all-time. So quotable.


Honorable Mentions:

The Union, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, How High, Super Troopers, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Stoned Age, Bio-Dome, Knocked Up, PCU, Homegrown, Rolling Kansas, Bongwater

    • matthew

      of course it did its the best of the best

    • jacob

      The Best Stoner Movie Of All Time is Definitely Pineapple Express

    • http://reeferskatetrip.blogspot.com/ New Moses

      How High and are easily 1 and 2, get serious

  • JackyBoy

    What about How High!!!! not first over all but damn good.

    • JackyBoy

      Ps: I vote Up In Smoke, its the only option, a classic for all ages, gotta have respect, but all very good contenders

  • http://www.wheatstate.com/~culprits grandma green

    Most of these are right on, but I think Humboldt County should get an honorable mention. It’s not that funny, but it’s quite educational.

    Saving Grace is the only movie I’ve ever bought. I’d never heard of it, but it was on sale so I bought it based on the synopsis on back of the box. We’ve nearly worn it out sharing it with everyone. It’s great every time we watch it.

    • matthew

      your retarded

    • Dylan

      you are a moron…. dont ever post on any marijuana forum again… i hope you get in a fucking car wreck

      • Gloria

        Just because she likes a dumb movie she should be hit by a car?? Your nuts.

    • Boobphiliac

      Grandma’s boy number 6!!!!!!!! Jesus ufking Christ!!!! I can watch that movie time after time and in Every Single One ask myself,Who wouldnt love to be Alex?He smokes pot all the time,works in the imaginary dream profession of *Game Testing*
      Then he later meets his red hot ass boss-girlfriend to be and develops a mind blowing game that very likely made him rich as ufck! This movie is the trip someone very high had while experimenting with Northern lights.
      B.T.W…….right after Alex and possibly head to head,is the fat jewish kid who happened to hook up with some pornstar( who happened to be in the area) who fancied enjoyed having her UUs sucked on and being spanked for if I remember correctly 13 hours?……..definitely a good trip…..

    • http://e-tard.tv/ E-TARD The LifeCaster

      yeah Saving Grace is a cool movie.

      what about Idle Hands (1999) now thats a good stoner movie.

      • miggy420

        Idle Hands is awesome, just watched it for Halloween again

    • burned

      Saul on Pineapple Express is based on Brad Pitt’s character on True Romance.

    • Mike A Shuman

      Reefer Madness are you nuts this movie is why there are so many untrue stereotypes about reefer smokers today,

  • http://www.livemicgigs.com visionz

    Pineapple exxpress ///// NUMBER 1

    a cop, a lady and a guy??? thats a masacre! :D

  • maddie “mary-jane” howard

    by far my favourite movie.. EVER ! :D

  • Tripwire

    Another Cheech and Chong that’s good when you’re stoned is Next Movie, it’s hilarious imo :)

  • GS

    Up in Smoke/Next Movie are classics… Big Lebowski is what the typical anti-MJ person would like to believe is all smokers, very entertaining & I do know people like the Jeff Bridges character exist… Grandma’s Boy is a good modern-day film.

    I’ve noticed a movie missing from the lists…. Idiocracy ?

    And an honorable mention to Eddie Murphy for his bathroom scene in Trading Places?

    • GS

      My bad – I guess Idiocracy was just the dumbing down of our culture….

      • Liz

        Funny as hell tho! :)

  • ronny k

    I thought super high me was lame. the only time it looks like he inhales is w/ the vaporizer, and even that looks sketchy

    • D Rice

      ur a dumbass obviously he inhales and obviously uve never smokes a vaporizer before. it looks sketchy cuz vaporizers dont make any smoke wen u inhale

    • http://www.marijuanadrama.com Mike

      Na D your a fucking dumb ass. I saw super high me and every single hit the guy took his checks would blow up and then he blow straight out. It looked sketchy but the guy is fucking hilarious and obviously smokes weed.

  • g

    “American Beauty” is where I first learned of G-13.

  • KeredEvol36

  • James

    BIODOME? you have BIODOME listed as a good weed movie, and yet not HUMBOLDT COUNTY? ARE YOU INSANE?!

  • Mike

    Uhhh, Overgrow?? I mean damn man……

  • blackjack72

    Don’t know how you could have left out “Blazing Saddles”

  • blackjack72

    However, “True Romance” would be GREAT (not so much for the lightweight first-timer) :-)

  • Gabe

    No Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas?

    • mjamjamajamaja

      thats what i was thinking! craziest trip to that movie

      • Traxgamm

        Yeahh where is Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas [1998]. my mind always want to watch this shit movie :))

  • Nod

    have none of you heard of “puff puff pass” also known as “living high” it is along with grandma’s boy the best stoner movie !!!

  • rome-a-dome

    def gotta have fear and loathing las veagas ive got the special edish lol

  • Stoneman

    Dude, how in the name of holy smokes did you miss “Tenacious D” and “Fear and Loathing in Vegas”?

  • parsley-popsicle

    HMMMM… since i don’t see any mention of “Smiley Face” i can only assume one of two things: either it’s widely considered unkool/unworthy of mention, or it’s more obscure than i thought… but this film instantly became one of my top faves, if you haven’t seen it definitely check it out~

  • http://www.amazon.com/Man-Kind/dp/B004BDIONM Picardy Third

    Check out this new low-budget stoner action dramedy – MAN / KIND. A new addition to the list?

  • weegus42

    Sorry, stumbled on the site and thought I’d add my two cents. It seems people are missing ‘Outside Providence’ if only for Drugs Delaney and the gallon drum bong.

  • DutchSmoker

    How about harold and kumar. Those movies made me laught too.

  • Gabe

    What the shit? What about Smiley Face?

  • danomano420

    No talks about the friday movies they r old school

  • Malici

    How High should definately have been on this list perhaps replacing or at least aheaad of easy rider. As a part of the movement like you said Easy Rider was kick ass but as far as overall quality and entertainment how High was much better either than that I would say the list is on point.


  • hashman

    Half Baked BEST movie ever made. stoned out of my mind, the whole movie is about weed that makes you fly….sounds good to me

  • eloy

    what about the white castle movies. and blow and the other two fridays, and the wacness, kids

  • asstits

    whats the pineapple express?

    • i>u


  • David

    I say Fear and Loathing, Homegrown: is easily a classic (very under the radar). course how high, half baked, up in smoke&next movie, dazed and confused, friday 1&2, Both Harold and Kumars, but of course some of the good ones you probably dont hear about: Humboldt county, knocked up , taking woodstock, supertroopers, adventureland, due date (fairly new also has one of the best stoner scenes ever), strange wilderness, Totally baked, even Charlie bartlett is pretty stoner like. Also Grass and The union: the buisness behind getting high are great documenturies about prohibition. The Showtime show weeds all six seasons are great. ALSO read High times & Skunk mag. Love the culture. I am sure i forgot some but hey, enjoy…

  • David

    And for what its worth “The chappelle’s show” Season 1,2, and 3ish have alot weed related skits that were funny as hell. Sh*t tell you the truth i also watch “gabba gabba” with my daughter when i am feeling nice (wink) and chillin. Life can be nice sometimes.

  • F100

    Where is Harold & Kumar 1 and 2?

    • DrGonzo

      In the bin where they belong, absolute shite!

    Great taste dude, I really like your list and totally agree with ya ! Although to me both Half Baked and Up in Smoke are fantastic stoner movies, but I think they are on the same level, I couldn’t make a decision in this case :P Check out on my personal Top 10 List, I recently submitted it at a blog called http://www.stonermovies420.com/ ;) Don’t forget to leave a reply buddy !
