When you’re high, there’s no better activity to engage in than binging on a few hours of fantastic films. That way, you’re not behind the wheel of a car, at work, texting your ex, or making junk food decisions at the grocery store that you’ll later regret. When you watch a movie while blazed, the sound and colors are better, and the things that are supposed to be funny (and some things that aren’t) become really funny. The climax hits you like a ton of bricks. You start to understand the characters better than you understand yourself. It’s honestly the best way to enjoy any motion picture.
Of course, in order to properly enhance your movie-watching experience while stoned, you need to choose the right film. That’s why Netflix is a pothead’s paradise: hours of movies and television without running up a pay-per-view bill, and a movie selection for any particular stoner mood in which you might find yourself: hungry, dazed, giggly, horny, creative, cynical, or distracted. We’ve compiled a list of the best movies to watch high on Netflix right now.
What are some more of the best stoner movies to watch while under the influence of the holy herb? Please leave your choices, and a few Doritos, in the comments.
Wet Hot American Summer
With the latest eight-episode prequel series now on Netflix, the time is right to to watch the original movie that helped build the careers of Amy Poehler, Bradley Cooper, Paul Rudd, and Elizabeth Banks, along with about a dozen other recognizable and amazing actors. Maybe you watched this movie once, while stone cold sober, and you didn’t get it. Grab your bong and give it another go. The movie is so much funnier this way. Being under the influence of marijuana turns Wet Hot American Summer into Shakespearean theater.
