“I don’t remember graduating, and my first sexual experience... I don't remember that either. But MAAAAAAAAAN, I will never ever forget the first time I smoked that sweet, sweet chiba!”
Today marks the international day to get baked and celebrate, but just in case you find yourself without anything to keep you entertained while your brain slowly seeps out of your ears I'm here to provide you with a list of five movies that are 4/20 friendly.
#1 Super Trooper 2.
With the release date being 4/20 it’s sure to play to all of your stoner needs. Plus with a massive first weekend you're making sure the Broken Lizard guys gets to keep making movies and maybe just maybe you guys can finally get your pot-fest movie!
#2 Half Baked
A fine stoner masterpiece written by Neal Brennan and Dave Chappelle (who also stars in the movie). It’s about a classic tale old as time. A group of stoners who live in New York are faced with raising the bail money for their friend/roommate who accidentally kills a diabetic police horse while on a munchie run. A modern day classic!
#3 Super Troopers
There’s a reason I placed Super Troopers 2 at the top of the list, and it’s because of how many times I’ve seen the original. This film is about a group of misplaced and ill prepared highway patrol officers with the mental capacity of a group of teenage boys. With their bag full of shenanigans and rivalry with the local police force this film delivers with the laughs.
#4 Pineapple Express
Another stoner masterpiece that I’ve seen more times than I can count. It’s about a stoner and his best friend drug dealer who get tied up in a violent turf war. Not knowing where to go or what to do they end up smoking a bunch while trying to get away from it all and that only draws them closer to the action.
#5 Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
Two stoners/drug dealers are going about their daily activities when they discover a major motion picture is being made about two fictional characters based off their image. Realizing that they haven’t be compensated for the rights and, more importantly, that they would be made fun of on the internet and might ruin their chances of getting laid, they decide to stop the movie from being made. It’s not the best Kevin Smith film, but it’s the best for this day.
With 4/20 among us feel free to sit back, melt into the couch and enjoy one of the these films to help you through your fantastic trip to the skies and back.
Happy smoking. Enjoy responsibly.
