Since the 1970s, psychedelic films have been popular. Up the Smoke (1978) is a classic stoner film, depicting a pair of fugitives on the run from Mexican police as they make their way to the United States. Some of the best stoner movies of all time, like ‘Sausage Party,” ‘Dazed and Confused,’ and so on, have also been made. “Dude, Where Is My Car?” and “Knocked Up” are two examples of “stoned” movies that have crossed all the boundaries of being “stoned” and have risen to the top of the “stoned” index. ‘Dude, Where Is My Car?’
Only a few stoner movies are available on Netflix, and we couldn’t find any of the most popular stoner flicks on the streaming service. It’s also worth noting that this “stoner movie” list includes not only great films that will blow your mind while you’re smoking something, but also a documentary about marijuana use and movies that deal with drugs in some way. While smoking, you don’t really give a damn what you’re seeing. They’re all going to take your breath away in their own unique ways. With that said, here is a list of some of the best stoner movies now streaming on Netflix.
20. Mac & Devin Go to High School (2012)
Two high school kids (do you get it? Snoop and Wiz are both in high school). A valedictorian speech must be written for Snoop Dogg, and Wiz Khalifa has to assist him with this task. This movie is only enjoyable if you’re puffing on a cigarette while you watch it. In between scenes, there are musical interludes and a lot of jokes that are sure to make you chuckle. Although the story lacks depth, it has some enjoyable moments and is worth a one-time viewing if you’re looking for something to do while stoned. At the very least, he’s trying to pass himself off as such.
19. Dude (2018)
Lily, Chloe, Amelia, and Rebecca are four high school friends who are set to complete their final year of high school. They spend much of their time smoking pot, chatting about their families’ troubles, and talking about boyfriends, proms, vulgarity, and weed. These students are beginning to deal with the sorrow of losing friends, separating from one other due to work and other personal issues as they approach their final year of school. Donkey Bong, a donkey-kong shaped bong, has been often mentioned throughout the film, although it appears to have taken a large portion of the production’s budget. The film was praised and critiqued equally, and remains one of the best Lucy Hale films out there.
18. The Package (2018)
“The Package,” which has received the favorable review of IMDB users (you are the best judge), is a black comedy that centers on three of the film’s protagonists, Sean, Jeremy, and Donnie, three of the males who had originally planned to attend a camping trip with Becky (Jeremy’s sister) and Sarah. Accidentally, while the group is boozing and having fun around the campfire, Jeremy cuts off one of his organs. Everyone goes into a frenzy, looking for his organ and attempting to get it to a hospital within 12 hours for penile reattachment surgery within that timeframe. A comedy of blunders and horrors ensues with the remaining four seemingly failing at every duty they’re given. ‘The Package’ is both hilarious and cliched at the same time, with jokes that we’ve seen before in many other films. Although it is refreshing in comparison to the other films on the list, it is nonetheless a welcome change.
17. The Do-Over (2016)
Charlie and Max go way back. They devise a wicked but successful scheme to break out of their shells and become something different when they are fed up with their daily routines. On their boat journey, Max blows up their boat. When Charlie awoke, Max suggested that they may start a new life by taking on new identities. They take on the identities of Dr. Ronald Fishman and Butch Ryder when they relocate to Puerto Rico. They begin to wonder about their newfound namesakes’ pasts as time goes on.. As a typical Adam Sandler comedy, ‘The Do-Over’ is sure to make you both laugh and cringe at the same time. Although it is a stoner movie that may be enjoyed over the weekend.
16. Weed the People (2018)
There’s nothing wrong with the title, but this film is absolutely worth your time. It’s been widely praised for its insightful look into the lives of parents who use marijuana to treat and control the agony of their children with cancer. Testimony from those who have tried and failed to obtain “federally unlawful” drugs is featured in the documentary “Weed the People.” According to these laws and politics, pharmaceutical companies are hypocrites since they deny these treatments based on “lack of scientific evidence” or “empirical evidence,” while at the same time obstructing research in this area. Due to these laws, it is more difficult to obtain standardized and safe pharmaceuticals in certain situations. There’s more to this than just the bogus claims of pot advocates. This is the real science behind it.
15. Moonwalkers (2015)
Stanley Kubrick is kidnapped by Kidman, an agent who served in Vietnam and suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. He is paid a large quantity of money, and Kidman plans to use the false moon landing to cover up the Apollo 11 mission’s failure. Rather, Johnny, a struggling band artist who is in debt to loan sharks, pretends to organize a meeting between Kidman and Kubrick, but encourages his stoned roommate to appear as an imposter instead, just for the money. Johnny and Kidman appear to be losing the battle against the so-called loan shark criminal known as Iron Monger after a deal went awry. In this film, Kidman plays a character that is both fascinating and frustrating at the same time. If you’re looking for a stoner movie with a lot of laughs, this is the one for you.
14. Reincarnated (2012)
‘Reincarnated’ is a stoner documentary about Snoop Dogg’s life and how he came to be what he is now. Intriguingly, it recounts a musician’s unorthodox lifestyle. The picture is entertaining, albeit a bit drowsy, and the effects of overdosing on marijuana are clearly seen. This is still a must-see for Snoop Dogg fans, though.
13. The Legend of 420 (2017)
In ‘The Legend of 420’, a documentary about the history of marijuana, its legality in different countries, and the consequences of legalizing it after decades of prohibition, the film is both amusing and enlightening. As a result of the legalization of marijuana in a handful of states during the previous few years, the video features interviews with marijuana growers, law enforcement officials, politicians, and others. To learn more about this 420 and why it’s beneficial or detrimental to society, you might want to watch this documentary.
12. Lommbock (2017)
For many years, Stefan and Kai have been close friends. Stefan has become a successful lawyer in Dubai, while Kai is battling to maintain a positive relationship with his stepson, who is pursuing a career in the “drug” industry. When it comes to whether or not his career will take off and whether or not Kai has the ability to help Kai’s son with his troubles, this movie is all about. As a whole, the picture evokes a number of strong feelings: optimism, love, and a burning desire to achieve the finest possible outcome. It’s possible that this is one of the few rays of optimism that can be found in this dismal sub-genre.
11. Udta Punjab (2016)
‘Udta Punjab’, one of the best Bollywood films of recent years, is set in Punjab, a state in India that has been plagued by a drug crisis for some time now. In this film, narcotics usage is depicted via the lives of several characters who are interwoven throughout the narrative. For starters, we meet a Punjabi musician whose ability to express himself artistically has been harmed by his cocaine usage. This time, he’s sent to a farm where a girl named Kumari Pinky gets caught up in a dangerous drug-related situation. Preet Sahni, a doctor, and Sartaj Singh, a police officer, are leading the charge against this societal ill. They are brought together in an incredible thriller and a strong social drama in this film. Iconic storyline and tremendous performances from the four principal actors make ‘Udta Punjab’ an essential viewing experience.
10. Take the 10 (2017)
If you appreciate movies like “Harold & Kumar” or “Pineapple Express,” then you’ll love this one. One night, two guys decide to sneak into a hip-hop concert with forgeries and end up embarrassing themselves in front of everyone they encounter, including a deadly drug dealer. Chris is played by Drake & Josh’s Josh Peck; Chester Tamborghini is played by Tony Revolori; and Andy Samberg, who somehow manages to find his way into films like this. Director and writer Chester Tam also takes on the character of Jay Morrison in the film. The character of Chester may have been named after Chester Tam, the actor who portrays the character. This is a fun movie that shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
9. Brahman Naman (2016)
This is Netflix’s first Indian-made original movie, and it tells the story of four losers, none of whom can find a girlfriend or convince their parents that they are old enough to make their own choices. Quizzes, drinking, and sex (which they don’t get) are the only things they excel in. The story takes place in the 1980s in Bangalore, a city in southern India. Misadventure follows these four young men wherever they go, even when they travel to Kolkata for the finals of a national-level quiz. But the funniest aspect of this comedy of errors is that it never praises sexual objectification and ultimately demonstrates how entitled Indian upper-caste males can be. This is precisely why filmmaker Quashiq Mukherjee emphasizes in the title of the film the cast of the main character, that he is a “Brahman.”
8. Special Correspondents (2016)
An original comedy film by Ricky Gervais tells the story of two journalists dispatched to Ecuador to cover the country’s political uprising: radio journalist Frank Bonneville (Eric Bana) and sound technician Ian Finch (Gervais). Because Finch has misplaced both of their passports, the two men hide in a Spanish couple’s cafe and pretend to report from there. They create a figure named Emilio Santiago Alvarez in order to sensationalize their news and claim that he is closely associated with the rebellion that is taking place. This notifies the US government, which is concerned about the safety of these two citizens. Suddenly, Bonneville and Finch’s worries of being discovered quickly grow into a full-blown crisis. Despite the fact that Gervais’ humor is on target, it does not go deep into societal issues or any serious topics. As a result, ‘Special Correspondents’ is nevertheless an extremely enjoyable movie.
7. Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics (2020)
From the graphics to the storylines, this film is a journey in and of itself. Listen to famous people talk about their psychedelic experiences and experiments. This will not only provide you with interesting tidbits and “ultra-stoned” anecdotes, but it will also be incredibly relatable (forgive the pun). Donick Cary, the film’s writer-producer, explained that the film’s purpose is not to encourage or oppose it, but to demystify the concept and expose it as a rational and balanced point of discussion.. Many celebrities, including Sting, Ben Stiller, Carrie Fischer, and David Cross, appear in this documentary.
6. Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019)
There had already been a huge following for the YouTube comic discussion show “Between Two Ferns” hosted by Zack Galifianakis before Netflix made the decision to acquire the film rights to the show. A public access television show called ‘Between Two Ferns’ features Galifianakis, who plays himself and hosts the show. However, comedian Will Ferrell chooses to upload the show to his comedic platform Funny Or Die after seeing it. This makes Galifianakis and the show a laughing stock, but he gets to interview a lot of celebs across the country. To see Galifianakis’ various misadventures, the film follows him around the country, where he meets some well-known people. The humor in the video will be familiar to anyone who saw the original YouTube series and has a similar sense of humor. The absurd settings that Galifianakis finds himself in are perfectly suited to his deadpan sense of comedy.
5. The Legend of Cocaine Island (2018)
However, even though it is a documentary, “The Legend Of Cocaine Island” delivers the kind of thrills and chills you might anticipate from a full film. Why? Because ‘The Legend Of Cocaine Island’ recreates Florida businessman Rodney Hyden’s need for quick cash after his company is destroyed by the 2008 financial crisis. He’s looking for a $2 million bag of cocaine hidden someplace along the Caribbean coast. He is tricked into believing that a bag he is shown is full of cocaine by some undercover cops. Afterwards, they wait anxiously for Hyden’s arrival so that they can arrest him and split the proceeds. There are some people who went to great lengths to save their lives when the economic crisis was over. Intriguing and amusing, this film is a must-see for everyone looking for a good time.
4. Grass Is Greener (2019)
Every time Netflix comes up with new content, it manages to make something that is both timely and appealing to a wide audience. As a documentary about the history of marijuana in the United States, its socio-cultural effects, and how government agencies have pursued users and distributors, “Grass Is Greener” is bound to be of interest to a wide audience. Marijuana prohibition has been a racially motivated strategy that has resulted in the imprisonment of many young black men, which the film shows us in detail. Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Sen Dog, DMC, and others are featured in the documentary, which examines the American culture around marijuana.
3. Trailer Park Boys: The Movie (2006)
Julian, Ricky, and Bubbles are the three main protagonists in this series, which is based on the TV show “Trailer Park Boys.” Everyone here has the same dream: to move out of the trailer park and into an apartment. This group, on the other hand, plans to loot an ATM to make money. Ricky and Julian are sentenced to 18 months in prison after their plot goes awry. “The Big Dirty” is the name they give to the robbery they plan to carry out when they return to their criminal lifestyles after a long absence. The movie won’t blow your mind with its profundity, but it will make you laugh and make you smile. Fans around the world have grown to love the characters thanks to this film adaptation.
2. Winter Of Our Dreams (1981)
In ‘The Winter of Our Dreams,’ a man named Rob tells his experience. He operates a bookshop and has a rather routine life. Rob suspects foul play when he hears that one of his college friends, Lisa, had taken her own life. However, he meets Lou, a heroin-addicted prostitute, as a result of this research. His compassion for her causes him to take action and assist her in making a new start in life. Her open relationship with Rob has allowed her to be busy with another man. Despite this, Lou’s presence puts Rob’s comfortable life in jeopardy. When faced with the choice between his old life and a new one, he needs to make a decision. Bryan Brown’s unconvincing portrayal in the major part hurts this film, but it’s still worth seeing.
1. The Other One: The Long Strange Trip of Bob Weir (2015)
A Palo Alto native, Bob Weir rose to popularity as the Grateful Dead’s rhythm guitarist and singer. He and his bandmates are the focus of this documentary, which chronicles his rise to stardom and their friendship. Mike Fleiss, the film’s director and producer, confirms that the band’s vaults will yield some previously unseen gems. The counterculture of the 1960s and 1970s was dominated by musicians, and psychedelics and inventiveness were viewed as defining characteristics of the era. Interviews with Weir’s friends, family, and colleagues are included in this film, as are ones with Weir himself. In this Netflix Original, we get a glimpse into the life of a person who is rarely in the spotlight.
