The Ultimate 4/20 Guide To Watching Movies While You’re High

Happy 4/20! To celebrate our favorite holiday of the year, we have put together a list of the best movies to watch when you are stoned.

Movies That Make More Sense When You are High

Some movies that are hard to follow or have too many plot twists make a lot more sense after you’ve smoked a joint or three…

Fight Club
You’ve seen the movie five times and you still don’t really get it. Watch it while high.

Donnie Darko
This supernatural psychological drama is awesome when you are stoned.

Enter the Void
Keep in mind, the director was high on mushrooms when he wrote it.

Some people overanalyze this awesome film. Being high makes sense of it all.

Mulholland Drive
It’s a David Lynch film. That’s all I need to say.

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind
It’s a movie with a random plot and some twists that might be confusing when you’re sober — but you’re not sober.

Movies That are Just a Trip


This Tim Burton computer animated post-apocalyptic sci-fi thriller is a must-see.

It’s a teddy bear brought to life. Enough said.

Allegro Non Troppo
I was going to recommend Disney’s Fantasia, which is a trip in its own right. But instead, here’s an Italian animated film that’s a parody of Fantasia.

Team America: World Police
Produced by the makers of South Park, this movie’s cast is comprised of puppets, including Kim Jong-il.

Shaun of the Dead
Horror comedy at its best.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit
Dammit, I wish Jessica were real.

Of course, you could have a 4/20 marathon with the movies that feature stoners. Start with a classic like Friday, The Big Lebowski or Half Baked. Follow it up with Dazed and Confused, Dude, Where’s My Car?, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, or my personal favorite – Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle.
