1. Clerks (1994)
“Clerks” follows Dante and Randal—convenience store clerks—for one day while they pass the time ignoring customers, contemplating salsa sharks and playing roof hockey. Notable for being the cult classic that launched Kevin Smith’s career.
2. The Big Lebowski (1998)
A man known as “The Dude” is mistaken for a millionaire whose wife has been kidnapped. A cult classic, also notable for being added to the National Film Registry. The Dude really does abide!
3. Super High Me (2007)
A documentary following stand-up comedian Doug Benson as he smokes marijuana every day for 30 days. With cameos from the likes of Sarah Silverman, Bob Odenkirk and Rob Riggle, Super High Me is an entertaining and comedic take on the effects of marijuana.
4. “Cheech and Chong’s Up In Smoke” (1978)
Cheech and Chong, high, in a series of misadventures. Need we say more, man?
5. Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001)
Remember Jay and Silent Bob from Clerks (above)? They return to the big screen to prevent the making of movie about their comic book counterparts. If you are familiar with Kevin Smith’s other films (Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma), you will love the multiple character references, connections and cameos throughout Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. And let’s be real, nothing beats the hilarity that ensues on a stoner road trip.
