Stoners and heroin junkies are a popular subject for the people over at Hollywood to make movies on. Stoners are fun and movies about them are fun. Other substance junkies are not so fun, depressing but have the craziest trips and generally end up dying in their own pool of vomit and feces OR cleaning their act and making an inspiring story.
This is not a list of the best stoner movies or best movies about substance abuse or some such. This is a list about movies that would want to make you drop everything and just get high as shit right ASAP! But, the title already told you that, no?
5. Pineapple Express
This one is right up there on my best stoner/weed movie! James Franco as the perpetually stoned dealer and Seth Rogen as the perpetually stoned, ermm, stoner make for one of the most hilarious onscreen bro-pair-ups!
Even after being dazed to the core with their high quality stuff and cross joints (!), they manage to evade murderous corrupt cops, betraying friends and merciless drug lords. At the end, everything works out fine for them!
This movie makes you wanna call that drug dealing friend of yours and smoke up, right then and there! And then watch the movie again, just experience it while high!
4. Speed Racer
Yes, nobody smokes up or does anything in this movie. But I am pretty sure everyone involved in the making of this movie was high as a kite when they made it. There is NO other explanation.
The visuals, graphics, sound, acting - everything about this movie is trippy!
While watching the movie, the only thing I could think of is, "Dayam, if only I were tripping on something right now!"
No, I never went back high to see the movie. Don't think I will be able to survive another two hours of such shittiness.
3. Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels
Not a stoner or drug abuse movie this one.. Buuut. They grow copious amounts of weed being grown!!!!!! So much that you can't help crave for some!
Winston: You went out six hours ago to buy a money counter and you come back with a semi-conscious Gloria and a bag of fertilizer. Alarm bells are ringing, Willie.
Willie: We need fertilizer Winston.
Winston: Mmmhmm. We also need a money counter. This money's got to be out by Thursday, I'm buggered if I'm gonna count it. Just make sure if you do need to buy sodding fertilizer you could be a bit more subtle.
Willie: What do you mean?
Winston: We grow copious amounts of ganja, yah? And you're carrying a wasted girl and a bag of fertilizer. You don't look like your average horti-fucking- culturalist! That's what I mean Willie.
Before Danny Boyle created shittiness in the form of Slumdog Millionaire, he had made Trainspotting!
This is the story of four Irish people who get dragged into herion addiction and the tragic turn most of their lives take. There is other shit too.
But, so many people tripping, lying around high as a kite and some visuals that could only make sense if you were watching it while you were totally strung out makes a man hungry for things.
If you wanna stay clean, then stay away!
1. Dazed And Confused
The tag line of this movie says 'Weed Rules'. Enough said.
