5 Stoner Movies to Watch on 4/20

Saturday is 4/20. It's also record store day. That's like the planets aligning and Cinco de Mayo falling on a Taco Tuesday! For pot smokers a Saturday 4/20 is equal to a drinker's weekend St. Patrick's Day. Over the las t15 or so years the way we look at marijuana has completely changed. It's on the brink of being legalized all over the place throughout the country, and recreational use isn't super frowned upon anymore. There are some great movies that fit into a 4/20 Saturday of sitting and partaking. Here are a few go to movies. Fast Times at Ridgemont High Can we just start with the GOAT? Sean Penn's Spicoli is most likely the first character you think of when it comes to pot smokers. Every scene with him is perfect. I mean come on, the burger joint scene, "you had shirts on when you came in here." "Something happened to 'em man." I still say to my kids, even though they don't have a clue what I'm talking about, No Shoes... No Shirt.... No dice. https://youtu.be/k2NaHBVVYzY?si=-rlKgdgXlTCxGK7I&t=16 The Big Lebowski This is one on this list that has gotten the most love from people for the last 25 years. Just a classic. A phenomenal actor in Jeff Bridges bringing to life this ridiculous character in The Dude. The rest of the cast is amazing. I always love when serious actors are able to play a comedic character. A great example of that is Jeff Daniels. For Jeff Bridges and John Goodman's acting ability alone this movie holds up. Clip NSFW. The below clip also has one of the best worst edited for TV versions. "This is what happens when you find a stranger in the alps!!" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ACHtcbNvI5c Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle If you've ever had to feed the craving for something your don't have on hand in the house this movie is all of us. Ok they take some liberties with what actually happens, but who hasn't picked up Neil Patrick Harris on their way to White Castle. One of the best cameos comes from an actor you've seen do great comedy before, but most well known as Detective Stabler on Law & Order: SVU. Christopher Meloni plays the tow truck driver named Freakshow. It's such a great turn in the movie. Clip NSFW. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kepx9lmiHfg Enjoy your Saturday if you will be partaking in a weekend 4/20!
