->''"We aren't very functional when we're stoned - which is '''all the fucking time'''.''"
-->-- '''Dale''', ''Film/PineappleExpress''

Also known as THC Theater. A movie about TheStoner, made ''for'' the Stoner. Possibly made '''by''' Stoners, but [[WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs that can't be proven]], [[WordOfGod unless the creators acknowledge that it was]].

Tend not to be especially plot-driven, and often contain long tangents relating to pop culture. Expect 90% of the humor to be either puerile jokes or humor about doing incredibly stupid stuff thanks to being intoxicated. Basically, SliceOfLife genre for stoners. Many, but not all, Stoner Flicks are also examples of DrugsAreGood.

With these films, it's often recommended that you WatchItStoned.


* ''The Beach Girls''
* ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', a parody of old DetectiveDrama stories, where the gumshoe is actually a pot-smoking loser who finds himself in the movie plot.
* ''Film/TheBookOfManson''
* The ''Creator/CheechAndChong'' series, the TropeMaker
** ''Film/UpInSmoke''
** ''Film/CheechAndChongsNextMovie''
** ''Film/NiceDreams''
** ''Film/StillSmokin''
* ''Film/DazedAndConfused'' [[NeverTrustATrailer was mismarketed as one of these]]. The actual product is a coming of age film and only one character is actually a stoner.
* ''Film/DudeWheresMyCar''
* ''Film/EasyRider'': the Sixties version, back when pot was counterculture.
* ''Film/FearAndLoathingInLasVegas'' is about the drug culture of the late 60s and early 70s. Director Gilliam mixes in a dash of modern stoner humor into the adaptation.
* The ''Film/{{Friday}}'' series
* ''[[Film/GrandmasBoy2006 Grandma's Boy]]'': Nick Swardson says in one stand-up special that the actor who played Dante (the drug dealer) used real pot instead of the fake pot he was given for his scenes, which backfired on him when they ended up doing a bunch of takes.
* ''Grass'', though this one is documentary where everything else on this list tells a fictional story. Woody Harrelson provides the narration.
* ''Film/HalfBaked''
* The Harold & Kumar series:
** ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle''
** ''Film/HaroldAndKumarEscapeFromGuantanamoBay''
** ''Film/AVeryHaroldAndKumar3DChristmas''
* ''Film/TheHarderTheyCome'': Jamaican CultClassic, released in 1972. Often treated as a stoner film, because, well, it was made in Jamaica.
* ''Film/{{Help}}'': Music/TheBeatles were stoned off their asses during the making of it, and the ''non sequiturs'' and other ridiculous bits are far more entertaining.
* ''Film/HowHigh''
* ''Film/TheImmaculateConceptionOfLittleDizzle''
* ''Film/InherentVice'' by Creator/PaulThomasAnderson, an adaptation of [[Literature/InherentVice the novel]] by Creator/ThomasPynchon. A unique marriage of Stoner Flick and FilmNoir in which a perpetually high detective gets involved in several intricate criminal conspiracies.
* ''Film/JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack'' the other Kevin Smith movies have drug influence, but are much less focused on it.
* ''Film/JMenForever'' (1979). The villainous Lightning Bug schemes to conquer the Earth with SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll, and only the J-Men (an elite team of [[strike:tight-assed straights]] straight-jawed men-in-tights) can stop him with a combination of [[GagDub re-dubbed]] Republic FilmSerial heroes, schmaltzy music, and an indiscriminate bombing campaign of all suspected marijuana stashes. Has a vast number of Stoner jokes, including the motto of the J-Men which is "[[CanisLatinicus U Cannabis Smokem]]".
* ''Killer Bud''
* ''Film/KnockedUp'', the [[TwoLinesNoWaiting b-plot]] is Stoner comedy all the way.
* ''Film/LivingWill'', in addition to being a romantic comedy, has plenty of stoner humor.
* ''Mac and Devin Go to High School'' even opens with a cartoon spliff telling the audience to light one up before watching. In his review of the movie, Todd in the Shadows noted essentially that comedy movies which explicitly suggest the audience get high before watching usually aren't very funny to non-stoners - and ''everything'' is funnier when you're on pot anyway.
* ''Film/MagicalMysteryTour'', a trippy [[WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants impromptu]] [[Music/TheBeatles Beatles]] TV movie.
* ''Film/PineappleExpress''. Two stoners get mixed up in an action film. The title refers to a strain of weed.
* ''Film/ReeferMadness'' (2005), the classic [[BMovie exploitation film]] remade as an over-the-top musical comedy.
* ''Film/SavingGrace'', possibly the most intelligent stoner movie ever made.
* ''Film/AScannerDarkly'' is a ''very'' dark [[DeconstructedTrope deconstruction]], where the hilarity the characters get up to is the result of their brains literally being destroyed by Substance D. They also live in poverty and squalor, one of them tries to commit suicide (and may have succeeded), and the protagonist himself grows increasingly out-of-touch with reality. And the film ends with a list of friends [[Creator/PhilipKDick the author]] lost to substance abuse. Given the age of the source material, this may qualify as an UnbuiltTrope.
* ''Film/SuperTroopers'', though ironically the first scene features the heroes tormenting and busting some potheads for possession.
* ''Film/SmileyFace'', stars Anna Faris as a stoner who had a few too many marijuana cupcakes
* ''The Stoned Age''
* ''Super High Me''.
* ''Film/TenaciousDInThePickOfDestiny'' provides the page image. The film is noticeably more pot-centric than the group's previous specials.

* ''Music/TenaciousD'' themselves joke in the commentary that the film's message is that weed is friendship.
* ''Music/TheWall''.
* ''Film/WithnailAndI'' is a ruinously-heavey-drinking variant.
* ''Film/YourHighness'' is a stoner flick with a fantasy adventure plotline.
* ''Film/{{Zardoz}}''. John Boorman himself was high when he made the thing and it ''shows.''

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* ''Webcomic/JerkCity'' is a Stoner Webcomic. As one of its catchphrases goes, powerful forces ("bonghits") are at work.

* Fritz the Cat cartoons
** ''WesternAnimation/FritzTheCat''
** ''WesternAnimation/TheNineLivesOfFritzTheCat''
* ''WesternAnimation/AquaTeenHungerForce'' ''[[TheMovie Colon Movie Film For Theaters]]''
* ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'', a psychedelic example from 1968.
