10 Most Stoned Movie Characters
Stoner comedies are the best, these fumbling idiots always make us laugh. In the tradition of Crop-tober, we compiled this list of the 10 most influential, memorable and lovable stoners in movies. You’ll see the more true to life stoners and the over-the-top stoners. Sit back and spark up that doob while we relive some of Hollywood’s best stoners.
‘True Romance’ is just a messed up movie in general — besides Clarence Worely’s (Christian Slater) obsession with Elvis and kung fu movies — the basic plot of the movie is all about the drugs, man.
Floyd’s part isn’t too big in the movie besides his stoner lifestyle of living on a friends couch. The best part is when Floyd is visited by the mob looking for Worley and their cocaine. Watch the great stoner interaction below:
Dante is the quintessential stoner — the first time we see Dante in the movie is standing in his doorway completely naked and decorating his Christmas tree in July. Dante has some of the best lines in this movie, the best stoner line would have to be: “I’ll smoke it with ya bro, we’ll go to the loony bin together. I don’t give a f—.”
‘Man, I’m so wasted,’ is probably the line Spicoli is known best for. Spicoli comes in a little behind the curve, that’s just because we have some new-age stoners to get on the list. His banter with Mr. Hand has got to be the best student/teacher dialogue.
Saul is the loveable drug dealer in Pineapple Express who only deals drugs so he can keep his grandma in a nice nursing home. Saul has some of the greatest lines in this movie — enough to make any stoner proud — here’s Dale Denton (Seth Rogan) and Saul talking about hiding in the woods: “Saul: Man, why’d we have to go to the woods? / Dale Denton: Well you didn’t come up with any ideas! / Saul: Yeah, I came up with two! Nowhere and Quizno’s.”
The Dude — a semi-professional bowler, a guy being mistaken for someone else with the same name and just an all around stoner. The best is when he’s driving down the road listening to CCR and being followed by a VW bug and drops his joint in his lap (watch the video.) Every good stoner has been there.
‘Puff, puff give … you’re f—— up the rotation!’ How many times have you heard that sitting with your friends sharing a spliff? Smokey talks his friend Craig (Ice Cube) into getting high with him after Craig gets fired from his job for stealing boxes. Smokey and ‘Friday’ has to be one of best stoner comedies around.
Brian, played by Jim Breuer is one of the funniest stoner characters ever played. Jim Breuer — who was known for smoking weed — takes Brian to the pinnacle of stoner characters with his perfect portrayal of being high. This is probably the best scene in the movie when they are taking ‘munchie’ orders!
Jay and Silent Bob
We can’t leave out Jay and Silent Bob, ever since their first appearance in ‘Clerks,’ these two have been getting stoned and making us laugh. If you needed a fix, just head to the Quick Stop and by a nickel bag from Jay, you may have to sit through his song first — watch the video!
Ron ‘Slater’ Slater
‘Check ya later!’ We all had that burnout friend in high school that could relate to Slater. An awkward guy who lives to be high. Rory Cochrane portrayed one of the best stoners in a movie in the last 20 years — one of his best lines in the movie was: “I’m letting you have shotgun. But cuz it’s cuz only ‘cuz I’m goin’ inside.”
Cheech and Chong
Of course these guys are the No. 1 choice for best stoned character/s in a movie, every movie they have done together was a stoner movie. ‘Up in Smoke,’ about weed, ‘Nice Dreams,’ again weed and “Cheech and Chong’s Next Movie, you know its all about the weed. This has got to be the most memorable scene in the movie — “… am I driving OK?”
