School of Rock

Jack Black is hilarious anyway. But how he plays the loopy guitarist in School of Rock is magical. He dreams of winning a rock contest, but he gets thrown out of his band. At first he sits at home depressed but then he decides not to leave it there. He fills in as a teacher for his buddy Ned at Horace Green school. As a teacher he is not very good, but he can teach his students the magic of rock 'n roll, all too well. 

IMDB Rating: 7.1

TED

Until John has to make a choice between her and his buddy. Check out the trailer or turn it on right away. There is also a part 2!

IMDB Rating: 6.9

Spongebob Squarepants

A quick interlude. Have you ever watched Spongebob Squarepants while lying on the couch with bloodshot eyes? It's wonderful. Childhood sentiment still proves to work well years later. It's actually quite a good stoner/cannabis series. Grab an episode or watch one of the movies. Priceless if you ask us.

IMDB Rating: 8.2

Ali G Indahouse

Ali G is a gangster rapper. Or well, he thinks so himself. Unwittingly, he is used as a tool to overthrow the Prime Minister of Britain. The plan fails and Ali G is seen as a hero and voice of youth. In Ali G Indahouse you follow him and his mates in a film that is far too exaggerated. His actions are beyond shame and his ineptitude is too funny to describe. Just watch the trailer and you'll know what to expect.

IMDB Rating: 6.2

Horrible Bosses

A rock-solid and funny film starring Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Lindsay Sloane and Kevin Spacey, among others. In Horrible Bosses, the three friends Nick, Kurt and Dale work together to kill their horrible boss. On the advice of a deranged ex-con, they come up with a complicated plan. Once in progress, it turns out to be not as foolproof as they thought after all. A perfect crime comedy after a few grams of weed. 

IMDB rating: 6.8

Dude, Where’s My Car

This one is definitely in the top 5 stoner movies of all time. Dude, Where's My Car is about stoners and party animals Jesse and Chester who have had quite a party. The next morning is one big hangover and how did you guess: they lost their car. They don't remember anything at all. They go to find out what happened. It was one big madhouse to say the least. A movie full of great stoner humor and bizarre adventures. Haven't seen this one yet? Start with Dude, Where's My Car!

IMDB rating: 5.5

Scary Movie

Comedy and horror find each other in the genius stoner film series Scary Movie. Five parody films that will give you a good laugh or two.

The Scary Movie films have together made a billion euros. "No mercy. No shame. No sequel."

IMDB rating: variabel

Blue Mountain State

A delightful series that works extremely well on a good load of cannabis. Blue Mountain State is about an American Football team from Blue Mountain State University. They are all mad as hell. You follow Alex Moran, a very talented quarterback who is extremely lazy. His dorky best friend Sammy, a foolish coach and the insane deranged Thad. This series is all about gorgeous women, partying, hazing, drugs, madness and a little American Football. There are multiple seasons. This is going to be fun!

IMDB Rating: 8.3

How High

Of course, when you see the title you would never guess it. How High is a typical cannabis movie. Under the pressure of their parents, two guys named Silas and Jamal start smoking something magical in hopes of passing their entrance exams for Harvard University. They succeed and once there, the gangster stoners have to adjust quite a bit to their new surroundings. They feast their eyes on the women and have fun with teachers. Until the magic ganja wears off.

IMDB Rating: 6.3

Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back

Stoners Jay and Silent Bob from the comic strip Bluntman and Chronic get their own movie. Only they don't get any of the film's proceeds, and of course they don't agree to that. Not to mention the damage to their image. Follow them on their super vague trip to Hollywood, where they try to prevent the movie from getting made. And if you like it, there's a new part released many years later. 

IMDB Rating: 6.8

Cannabis Serie

The six-part Dutch Cannabis series is about cannabis king Johan van Laarhoven. He is sentenced to 103 years in prison in Thailand. What turns out? Not Thailand, but the Netherlands is behind the arrest. The series Cannabis looks at the soft drugs policy in the Netherlands around the seventies. Awarded with an 8.8. An interesting series in which the image of the Netherlands as a neat constitutional state is attacked. In addition, many leaders of the Dutch cannabis industry are interviewed. 

IMDB Rating: 8.8

This is the End

An apocalypse stoner movie with legendary stoner actors. That's This is the End. In the film you see how six Los Angeles celebrities end up in the middle of some kind of apocalypse. The city falls to pieces and they end up stuck in James Franco's house. Dry humor and events follow each other at lightning speed. Not only do they have to deal with the end of the city, but also themselves and their company. Gut-wrenching laughter.

IMDB Rating: 6.6

Dazed and Confused

Okay, if it says "See It With A Bud" on the cover of a movie, of course it shouldn't be missing from our stoner movies top 25. In Dazed and Confused, you follow a pair of high school students as they experience their last day of school. It's 1976, Austin Texas. The film doesn't exactly have a chronological order. You see all kinds of wonderful experiences like absurd initiation rituals and bad love affairs. A huge amount of booze and weed leads to misbehavior of the bunch of misfits, who constantly try to get tickets for an Aerosmith concert during the film. So: grab that bud from your pocket, roll it and turn on Dazed and Confused. Recommended!

IMDB Rating: 7.6

Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny

Two wannabe rockers search for a legendary plectrum in hopes that it will make them the greatest rock band of all time. That plectrum would give them sick guitar skills.

IMDB Rating: 6.8

Up in Smoke

The 1978 stoner movie classic featuring the duo Cheech & Chong. An aging stoner is bound to have seen this one. But the younger generation can certainly appreciate it too. The comedy duo Cheech and Chong meet in Up in Smoke randomly along the highway in California. They go looking for good weed, but accidentally end up in Mexico. In a van loaded with stash, which they themselves know nothing about, they drive back to the USA. An adventure that makes you laugh your balls off. Cheech and Chong are world famous in the cannabis community. A must see!

IMDB Rating: 6.9

Half Baked

A crime comedy whose title already gives away a bit of what kind of movie it is. The tagline of Half Baked is “They'll do anything to save their best bud.” That's all you really need to know if you want to watch a stoner movie. Anyway, two nice snappy guys are trying to get their buddy out of jail. They smoke like crazy and are constantly high as a kite. Roll one yourself and follow them in their adventure where they meet Snoop Dogg, among others. If this is not a stoner movie... we don't know what is. 

IMDB Rating: 6.7

Borat

The slightly peculiar and vague Borat, a television presenter from Kazakhstan, is sent to the United States to report on the greatest country in the world. However, he is more interested in beautiful women and eventually wants to find Pamela Anderson to marry her. The level of this humor has still not been invented. Go watch Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan and enjoy!

IMDB Rating: 7.3

They are done with adolescence (they think) and sign up as undercover cops on the Jump Street team. They have to infiltrate a high school to catch drug dealers. What they didn't expect? That their puberty was actually starting over. In the adventure, they risk their lives to catch the drug dealers. A great stoner movie that everyone can appreciate.
