Movies to Watch for 4/20

We all have our favorite movies to watch while we pass a dutch. So some of the resident midnight tokers decided to team up and give you guys a list of movies deemable for a 4/20 matinee. You might not agree with all of them, but give it a shot. You never know when you’ll have an existential realization while hear Pink Floyd’s “Money” overlap the yellow-brick road.


-This movie isn’t new enough to break the top 5, but it will leave you speechless.

9. Pineapple Express

-You barely need to be coherent to watch this movie and you’ll laugh everytime.

8. The Wizard Of Oz (with Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon on vinyl synced up)

-If you’ve never done this, you have never truly experienced the movie.

7. Cartoon version of Alice in Wonderland

-I mean, this movie is not for kids by any means; look at the stoned caterpillar.

6. Grandma’s Boy

-Grandma gets high and Nick Swardson hooks up with a 70-year old woman.

5. Any Darren Aronofsky Movies (except the Wrestler)

-You will lose your shit. Seriously.

4. Half Baked

-Dave Chappelle.

3. Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas

-A look at life from the point of view of Gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson.

2. Super High Me

-A good-hearted romp through the eyes of stoner comedian Doug Benson. It’s available in 9-10 minute installments on YouTube.


1. Dazed & Confused

-If you don’t know why, jump on it.

Some Honorable Mentions:

How High, Friday, Zoolander, Office Space, the original Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Ferris Bueler’s Day Off, Donnie Darko, Tha Carter Documentary, Super Troopers, and Where the Wild Things Are.

Anddd things not to watch…

Any Twilight Movies, KIDS, Philadelphia, any Mazerati Mo video, a baby, Deliverance, Reefer Madness, anything with Nicholas Cage, and Shake That Bear.

And some TV to watch: Hey Arnold!, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Archer, Weeds, Breaking Bad, Eastbound & Down, The Wire, Planet Earth, Life or anything else on the Discovery Channel.
