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. How High (2001)

Johnny Green: I will be honest, I didn’t like this movie when it first came out as much as I do now. It seemed kind of cheesy at first, but it has since grown on me. Method Man and Redman love marijuana, and I love this movie.

Ninjasmoker: It’s about time you came around.



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: Great movie! I watch it once a month at least.



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, Saving Grace, Super Troopers, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, The Stoned Age, Bio-Dome, Knocked Up, PCU, Homegrown, Rolling Kansas, Bongwater

    I think “Grandmas boy” rocked!!

    • matthew

      of course it did its the best of the best

    • jacob

      The Best Stoner Movie Of All Time is Definitely Pineapple Express

    • 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

  • 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…..

    • 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,

  • 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

    • 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

    yo wtfpeople, you forgetting Idle Hands with Seth Green, another under-reated stoner flick, damn we some forgetful mofos lol

  • letz blaze

  • Shrewt

  • mac


    • sana di na iligal sa pilipinas ung marijuana

Stay High *** :p

  • 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~

  • 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!

  • Has to be “Up in smoke”. never get tired of that film, infact anything with cheech and chong gets ya in the mood for a good smoke!

  • what about how high

    • luka de donder


  • jamie james

    anyone ever seen Homegrown with Billy Bob Thorton? pretty good flick

  • How about Evil Bong & Evil Bong 2: King Bong

  • daniel

    smiley face, anyone?

  • big perm


  • 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 !

  • luka de donder

  • timmytwotoke

  • Dizzy D

    not one person mentioned Jay and silent bob. ?

  • ChrisInSmoke

    i cannot believe that no one said J and Silent bob that strikes me as very odd knowing that many stoners didnt say that haha props to u though dizzy

  • Jim

    Pineapple express was awesome but I’m old school and love Up in smoke… We used to listen to the old Cheech and Chong records and laugh our asses off.,,,Dave’s not here!

  • Krispy Krame

    The Evil Bong

    • stony tony

      I have literally just stopped watching that film about half an hour in because it was so terrible.

  • DrGonzo

    By the way it’s Thai stick not tied stick

  • mjjohn

    what about fear and loathing

  • Bob

    U should try getting “Lambock” and some decent English subs to it. Its originally from Germany but rocks as

  • Sorry Fast Times will always be the #1 stoner movie of all time, period. The fact it isn’t on this list at all renders the list 100% meaningless.

  • Yeah I totally agree with you, there are so many stoner movies lists out there and all have different winners and loosers, confusing… ;)  However, if you are interested in more great stoner movies u have to check out   http://www.StonerMovies420.com 
    Peace !

  • Ifukpeanuts

  • chief

    Howwwwww is How High not in the top 5 let alone top 10?

    • Sean Goertz


  • chief

    Solid post though, I’m trying to figure out which one to watch now…

  • Blunt Burns

    Everyone else covered everything I was gonna say, except for Tenacious D – The Pick Of Destiny.  I really think that movie deserves an honorary spot, if not an actual spot.

    • ish

      I really love that movie and didn’t even think about it till I seen it.. good movie to

  • I see movies about stoners. How about movies you can only appreciate while stoned like John Leguizamo’s The Pest?

  • the truth

    Harold & Kumar????

  • stony tony

    Leaves of Grass is a powerfull film! Must see for every stoner.

  • Lilvillan93

  • Gloriana S

    what is the movie that there is an ice cream car…they call it sweet dreams?

    • Isaac Petty

      nice dreams- cheech and chong

  • I am high right now.

    Try typing “stoner movie compilation” in you tube, make a playlist of videos and hook your computer up to your tv

  • Jason. F

    I’m a stoner, have been for more than half of my life. And I’ve seen (along with, just about everyone here I’d assume) a shitload of stoner movies. As many as I can find. And Another REALLY good, hilarious movie that wasn’t on this list is a movie called “High School” Made in 2010. Great cast too, Adrian Brody, Michael Chiklis and Colin Hanks.

  • Giorno Giovanna

    How is Fast Times a stoner movie, same goes for Dazed? Is the Breakfast Club? Is any movie where a character smokes weed a stoner movie?

    • NoFightingInTheWarRoom

      Well Fast Times has one of the most memorable stoner characters of all time, so I guess that counts as it being a stoner movie. Dazed and Confused…well that’s just a stoner title right there. Its characters smoke a lot, and weed plays a role in some major plot points (specifically the ending). Its got a couple “major stoners” as characters, Slater being another incredibly memorable stoner in stoner movie history. Also it takes place in the 70s, which gives it stoner cred, and has an awesome soundtrack.

    • 1amStimULater1


  • This movie is funny and awsome it’s called High School its about a high school valedictorian who gets baked with the local stoner finds himself the subject of a drug test. The situation causes him
    to concoct an ambitious plan to get his entire graduating class to face the same
    fate, and fail. The site: http://www.movie2k.to/High-School-watch-movie-1678835.html

  • Kawk

    Pineapple Express is the worst movie i have ever seen. The fact that someone has put it on the same list as Grandmas Boy makes me cry blood

    • Dan C

      Totally agree, as a full blown stoner, Pineapple Express is a piece of crap.

    • chronic


  • Weed

    Devin and mac go to high school should be in the top 10

  • J2theC

    “Smiley face” and excellent weed movie

  • Joe Hilner

    There’s only 3 movies on ur list that I watched & didn’t feel cheated out of 90mins of my life. Pineapple express? That isn’t even funny when I’m tripping!

  • Jack Thomas

    High high and harold and kumar did not make the cut wow a little disappointed

  • jose thomas

    What about A Scanner Darkly

  • Eugene

    “The Problem With Mary” should’ve been on the list(Cameron Diaz).

    • moobs

      something about mary?

  • ish

    Harold and Kumar how high and homegrown should’ve been up there.. but most of those were right on.. even tho numbers were off.. and Friday precedents all the Fridays right? Lol

  • 40ish bum

    What, no Rocky Horror Picture Show??? lol
    Try watching Kids in the Hall: Brain Candy. Kind of obscure but HILARIOUS!

  • DennyG

    Two suggestions, Reefer Madness and Rancho Deluxe.

  • 1amStimULater1

    Zachariah was billed as the first electric western & featured mucho pot smoking…in the old west!

  • kayo

    what about the movie homegrown with billybob?

  • Steve Wichman

    Just saw a movie last night that I believe is the very first one to feature marijuana smoking and much to my surprise is not included on anyone’s list of pot flicks. The name is Jewel Robbery and features William Powell and Kay Francis released in 1932. Powell plays a jewel thief in Europe that offers joints to rich people which makes them giggle hysterically and then become very submissive helping with his heists, or passing out and as he puts it “waking up happy and very hungry.” While you never hear the words pot, or anything else, anybody with familiarity can’t help but immediately know what he’s talking about.

  • Janovitsj

    Mr Nice! :)

  • Johnny Johnboy

    Good choices…I would include River’s Edge also. Crazy scenes with Dennis Hopper as pot smoking dealer to young Keanu Reeves and Crispin Glover. And every smoker’s fantasy of finding a big grocery bag filled with pot (I assume it’s the ‘regular feck weed’). Dark story, but a lot of humor, Crispin Glover’s greatest performance.

  • Mariah

    What about Mac And Devon Go To High School? That’s always a winner! :)

    • theo

      cuz it no funnny jokes and snoop and wiz sucks

  • Highschool101

    Gotta add Mac and Devin go to high school. I watched it high yesterday and it always hits the spot
