30 Stoner Movies That You Can Watch to Get High (2022)

30 Stoner Movies That You Can Watch to Get High (2022)- Stoner films have been popular since the 1970s. ‘Up the Smoke (1978),’ which recounts the story of two stoners on the run from Mexico to the United States with the cops on their pursuit, is one of the best stoner flicks I remember from the era. Then there are the classics, such as ‘Sausage Party,’ ‘Dazed and Confused,’ and so on, which are frequently recognized as benchmark stoner flicks, albeit for no apparent reason. We have also seen movies like ‘Dude, Where’s My Car?,’ ‘Knocked Up,’ ‘Growing Op,’ etc., which have crossed all the bounds of being dubbed “stoned,” and they all stand much above the typical stoner flicks on the “stoned” index.

Netflix, on the other hand, offers a restricted selection of stoner films, and we couldn’t discover the main hits of the stoner subgenre on the streaming service. Nonetheless, this collection of “stoner movies” includes not just fantastic flicks that will blow your mind when you smoke something, but also a documentary about marijuana use and movies that involve drugs in some way. Because, after all, who cares what you’re watching when you’re smoking? They will all astonish you in different ways. With that stated, here’s a selection of pretty amazing stoner movies available on Netflix in honor of 420.

War Dogs (2016)

‘War Dogs,’ directed and co-written by Todd Phillips, is a dark comedy-crime thriller inspired by Efraim Diveroli’s 2016 memoir and Guy Lawson’s Rolling Stone article. The story centres around two arms traffickers, Efraim Diveroli and David Packouz, who acquire a $300 million contract from the United States Army. Their mission is to supply guns to the Afghan National Army while navigating the murky world of global arms trading. Can Efraim and David fulfill their lofty aims despite having little to no prior expertise with such a task?

Dude (2018)

Lily, Chloe, Amelia, and Rebecca, four high school friends in their final year, are often playing around, smoking pot, dealing with family problems, and talking about strenuous relationships, males, proms, profanity, and weed. As they enter their senior year, they begin to deal with the losses in their lives: the agony of losing friends, the parting of ways due to jobs, and the typical withdrawal symptoms that one has while leaving school for the last time. Concerning the weed, there is a donkey-kong shaped bong titled Donkey Bong that has been continually focused on throughout the film for no obvious purpose; yet, it appears to have consumed a large portion of the film’s budget. The film was both panned and praised, and it is still regarded as one of the best Lucy Hale films.

The Package (2018)

‘The Package,’ a black comedy with an IMDB rating of 5.5 (you’re the best judge), is largely centred around a group of five friends/crushes/acquaintances – Sean, Jeremy, and Donnie – the lads who were intending on coming to this camping trip, who are later joined by Becky (Jeremy’s sister) and Sarah. Jeremy accidentally cuts off his organ during the booze-filled fun night the folks are enjoying, complete with campfire and cursing. This leads everyone into a frenzy, with people seeking for his organ and attempting to transport it to a hospital for penile reattachment surgery within 12 hours. Everything happens in a comedy of mishaps and horrors, with the remaining four appearing to fail at every duty they take on. To cut a long story short, ‘The Package’ is both entertaining and cliched, with humor that we’ve seen in a slew of other films. Still, it’s a breath of new air compared to the other films on the list.

The Do-Over (2016)

Max and Charlie had known each other for a long time. They are fed up with their mundane lives and devise a nasty yet successful plot to break out of their shells and become something different. Max blows up their boat while on a boat trip, and when Charlie wakes up, Max advises that they can have a fresh and different life by assuming various identities. They move to Puerto Rico and take on the identities of Dr. Ronald Fishman and Butch Ryder. They are soon worried by the histories of their newfound namesakes. ‘The Do-Over’ is a typical Adam Sandler film that will make you laugh and cringe at the same time. Nonetheless, it’s one of those stoner flicks that you can watch over the weekend.

Weed the People (2018)

Although the title suggests a “stoner movie,” this one is well worth seeing. This instructive video, which has received wonderful reviews, depicts the hardship of parents who use marijuana for the treatment and pain management of their cancer-stricken children. ‘Weed the People’ shows the testimony of people who suffer while spending a lot of money on “federally unlawful” drugs. This reveals the hypocrisy of the laws and the pharmaceutical industry’s politics, as they prohibit these therapies based on “lack of study” or “empirical evidence,” despite the fact that they do not facilitate research in the field, but rather act as a hindrance. These legalities make it more difficult to obtain standardized and safe pharmaceuticals under these conditions. This goes beyond the propaganda of marijuana activists and informs us on the genuine science behind marijuana.

How High 2 (2019)

‘How High 2’ is a stoner comedy television film written by Shawn Ries, Artie Johann, Alex Blagg, and Neel Shah that serves as a sequel to Jesse Dylan’s 2001 film.

Unfortunately, his aspirations are dashed when the cannabis bible is stolen, and Roger embarks on a misadventure across the city with his cousin Calvin to retrieve it.

Woodshock (2017)

‘Woodshock,’ a psychological thriller drama film written and directed by Kate and Laura Mulleavy, stars Kirsten Dunst, Joe Cole, and Pilou Asbaek. The plot revolves around a young woman named Theresa, who assists her terminally ill mother in taking her own life by smoking a cannabis joint packed with poison. When Theresa inherits her mother’s isolated Northern California property, she struggles to cope with the loss and resorts to consuming a powerful narcotic, oblivious to its devastating consequences.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975)

30 Stoner Movies That You Can Watch to Get High (2022) - ThiruttuVCD

‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail’ is a British comedy film directed by Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones that is based on the Arthurian tale. King Arthur travels to the countryside in quest of knights to join him at the Round Table at Camelot, but gathering men proves to be a considerably more difficult task than he had anticipated. His issues only get worse when people start leaving, only to be stopped when God assigns him the mission of finding the Holy Grail. Individual knights’ mishaps lead them to unexpected places, which leads to a conclusion when the Police intervene.

Lommbock (2017)

Stefan and Kai have known each other for many years. They meet again, and while Stefan is a successful lawyer in Dubai, Kai is struggling to have fun with his stepson, who is going into the “drug” industry. The film is only concerned with whether he will be able to make apologies with his son, whether his career will finally take off, and whether Kai and Stefan will be able to address Kai’s son’s problems together. In terms of the picture as a whole, we could see some feelings streaming in – hope, love, and above all, the desire to strive for the best. Perhaps this is one of the rare rays of optimism among the darkness that pervades this subgenre.

Udta Punjab (2016)

‘Udta Punjab,’ one of the best Bollywood films in recent years, is set in the Indian state of Punjab, which has been dealing with a large drug problem for quite some time. By tracking the lives of several persons throughout the film, this film powerfully shows the state’s pervasive usage of opioids. First, we meet a Punjabi musician whose cocaine usage has hampered his creativity. His manager sends him to a farm, where a girl named Kumari Pinky becomes involved in another serious drug-related incident. Preet Sahni, a doctor, and Sartaj Singh, a police officer, are fighting this social problem. The film weaves together the lives of these four men, resulting in a fantastic thriller as well as a poignant social drama. ‘Udta Punjab’ is a must-see due to an exceptional storyline filled with doses of black humor and compelling performances by the four principal actors.

Take the 10 (2017)

If you appreciate movies like the ‘Harold & Kumar’ series or ‘Pineapple Express,’ then this is the one for you. This is the story of two closest friends who get to a hip-hop event on fake tickets and offend a lot of people along the way, including a deadly drug dealer. This film stars Josh Peck (of Drake & Josh fame) as Chris, Tony Revolori as Chester Tamborghini, and Andy Samberg, who somehow seems to find his way into films like this. Chester Tam, who wrote and directed the picture, also plays Jay Morrison. Did you realize Chester’s character was possibly named after Chester Tam himself? This film isn’t meant to be taken seriously; it’s only meant to entertain.

Brahman Naman (2016)

The premise of Netflix’s first Indian original film revolves around four losers, none of whom can find a girlfriend or persuade their parents that they are old enough to make their own decisions. All they’re good at is quizzing, drinking, and fantasizing about sex (which they never receive). The film is set in the 1980s in Bangalore, a city in southern India. When these four boys travel to Kolkata for the finals of a national-level quiz, they get a chance to be alone, but misadventure follows them there as well. Despite being a sex comedy, the best element of this film is that it never praises sexual objectification, instead demonstrating how entitled Indian upper-caste males can be. This is why filmmaker Quashiq Mukherjee emphasizes the leading character’s cast, that he is a “Brahman,” in the film’s title.

Special Correspondents (2016)

This Netflix original comedy film, written and directed by Ricky Gervais, follows radio journalist Frank Bonneville (Eric Bana) and sound technician Ian Finch (Gervais), both of whom are sent to travel Ecuador and cover the country’s political movement. When it is discovered that Finch has misplaced both of his passports, the two men decide to hide in a cafe owned by a Spanish couple and fake their reports from there. To make their news more dramatic, they fabricate a figure named Emilio Santiago Alvarez and claim that he is directly tied to the ongoing insurrection. This warns the US government, which believes that these two Americans are in danger. Things quickly spiral out of control as Bonneville and Finch get concerned that they will be discovered. While Gervais’ humour is spot on, it does not delve deeply into societal issues or any serious concerns. Regardless, ‘Special Correspondents’ is a tremendously enjoyable film.

Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics (2020)

From the graphics to the anecdotes, this documentary is a “journey” in and of itself. Watch celebrities discuss their psychedelic experiences and experiments. This will not only provide you with weird knowledge and “ultra-stoned” anecdotes from some of the most interesting people, but it will also be incredibly relatable (forgive the pun). According to writer-producer Donick Cary, the purpose of making a film like this is not to advocate or discourage it, but rather to demystify the concept and expose it as a rational and balanced point of discussion. Among those featured in this documentary include Sting, Ben Stiller, Carrie Fischer, and David Cross, to name a few.

Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019)

Before Netflix chose to order a movie based on Zack Galifianakis’ comic talk show ‘Between Two Ferns,’ it had acquired enormous popularity on YouTube. The film revolves around Galifianakis, who plays himself and hosts the public access television show ‘Between Two Ferns.’ However, after seeing the show, comedian Will Ferrell decided to upload it to his comedic platform Funny Or Die. After this, Galifianakis and the show become a laughingstock, but he does get to interview a slew of celebrities from throughout the country. The film follows Galifianakis and his numerous follies as he travels around the country and encounters a variety of well-known individuals. If you liked the original YouTube program, you’ll have no trouble understanding or reacting to the film’s humor. Galifianakis’ deadpan wit complements the absurd settings he finds himself in.

The Legend of Cocaine Island (2018)

‘The Legend Of Cocaine Island’ is a documentary, yet it packs enough of a punch to offer you the thrills you’d expect from a full film. The reason for this is that ‘The Legend Of Cocaine Island’ recreates Florida-based business Rodney Hyden’s effort to get some quick money after the 2008 financial crisis wrecks his corporation. He’s looking for a bag of cocaine worth roughly $2 million someplace on the Caribbean coast. Some undercover cops email him a photo of a bag and convince him that it contains cocaine. They then wait patiently for Hyden to meet them and divide the spoils before arresting him. This documentary depicts how desperate some people become following the economic crisis in order to keep their lives from sinking. This is a must-see film since it is really enjoyable, with funny moments sprinkled among the drama..

Grass Is Greener (2019)

Netflix has always been a corporation that manages to provide material that is both timely and appealing to a wide range of its consumers. The documentary ‘Grass Is Greener’ is bound to pique the interest of many people because it discusses the history of marijuana in America, its socio-cultural implications, and how the government has always pursued marijuana users and distributors. The film also shows how the marijuana crackdown has been a racist strategy that has devastated the lives of many young black boys by locking them up. The documentary includes interviews with notable people such as Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Sen Dog, DMC, and others who provide their perspectives on the marijuana culture in the United States.

Trailer Park Boys: The Movie (2006)

Based on the TV show ‘Trailer Park Boys,’ this sitcom revolves around Julian and his two buddies Ricky and Bubbles. They all live in a trailer park, yet they all want to live a better life. Instead of working for it, these youngsters intend to loot an ATM machine in order to get wealthy. Their scheme backfires, and while Bubbles escapes, Ricky and Julian are sentenced to 18 months in prison. When the two of them return, they hook up with Bubbles once more and decide to carry off one massive robbery, dubbed “The Big Dirty,” after which they would be able to give up their criminal lives. Expect no lofty concepts from the film, but be certain that it is entertaining and that you will have a fantastic time viewing it. It does credit to the original TV shows and has helped to popularize the characters among fans all around the world.

‘Game Over, Man!’ is an action comedy film directed by Kyle Newacheck that stars Adam DeVine, Anders Holm, Blake Anderson, Utkarsh Ambudkar, and Aya Cash in standout performances.

The Other One: The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir (2015)

Bob Weir was a Palo Alto native who rose to prominence as the rhythm guitarist and singer for the ‘Grateful Dead.’ This documentary follows his rise to stardom as well as his friendship with his bandmates. As Mike Fleiss, the film’s director and producer, assures, you will also hear some secret treasures from the band’s archives. As we all know, musicians, particularly in the 1960s and 1970s, were at the core of the counterculture, where psychedelics and creativity were regarded as two of the most defining characteristics of the time. This documentary features interviews with people from Weir’s life as well as Weir himself. This Netflix Original shines a focus on someone who would normally avoid the spotlight.
