9 Films To Watch On 4/20

Every holiday usually has some sort of activity attached to it, and while 4/20’s activity is obvious, we believe a movie marathon is definitely in order.

In honor of this literal high holiday, here’s nine films we think you should binge.

 

Friday

This movie may have celebrated its 20th anniversary recently, but it hasn’t aged a bit.

Friday (1995) Official Trailer - Ice Cube, Chris Tucker Comedy HD

Half Baked

They’re not drug dealers; they’re fund raisers.

Half Baked Trailer

Dave Chappelle leads an all-star cast - including Snoop Dogg, Jon Stewart and Willie Nelson - in this hilarious adventure of three lovable party buds trying to bail their friend out of jail.

 

Pineapple Express

The entire cast is incredible, but Danny McBride steals the show.

Watch Pineapple Express Trailer

Release Date: 6 August 2008 (United States) Ride high on the Pineapple Express, the outrageously hysterical blockbuster from Judd Apatow, the director and screenwriter of Knocked Up. A lazy stoner (Seth Rogen) is the sole witness to a murder by an evil drug lord (Gary Cole) and a corrupt cop (Rosie Perez).

 

Reefer Madness

Sure, it was meant of a cautionary tale when it was released in 1936, but it’s hard to watch this classic now without laughing histerically.

Dazed and Confused

We have three words to describe this iconic Richard Linklater film:  Alright, alright, alright.

Dazed and Confused - Trailer

Director Richard Linklater's follow-up to Slacker takes an autobiographical look at some Texas teens (including Ben Affleck and Matthew McConaughey) on their last day of school in 1976, centering on student Randall Floyd (Jason London), who moves easily among stoners, jocks and geeks.

 

Up In Smoke

If someone writes a list about stoner movies, and a Cheech and Chong film isn’t on the list, does the list even exist?  The answer is “no.”

Up In Smoke - Trailer

There's nothing straight about this movie. But here's the dope anyway: Cheech and Chong make their film debut in this riotous rock'n'roll comedy, bringing with them the same madness, lifestyles and sketches that sold over 10 million records in the early '70s.

 

Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle

Obviously John Cho and Kal Penn deliver outstanding comedic performances, but is there a better actor playing himself cameo than Neil Patrick Harris as “Neil Patrick Harris?”

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle follows the life-changing and mind-altering journey of Korean-American investment banker Harold Lee and Indian-American medical-school candidate Kumar Patel. MPAA Rating: R ™© New Line Productions, Inc. All Rights Reserved.

 

How High

Magic weed gets Method Man and Redman accepted to Harvard.  Hilarity ensues and gives new meaning to the phrase “higher learning.”

The Big Lebowski

In addition to lighting up, we suggest you fix yourself a White Russian (or two or four) as well.
