The original title of this post was “Top 20: Best stoner movies to watch on 4/20,” but since the demographic of the “stoner movie” is a bunch of pot-smoking, couch bums who don’t really know or care what they are watching, some of these titles should never be labeled a “great movie” in any context. That would be offensive to legitimately great movies.

Some of these movies, however, are great, like “The Big Lebowski” and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Many, on the other hand, are pretty bad but can be tolerated under certain circumstances (such as the circumstance 0f being high).

Here are 20 stoner-adjacent movies — good and bad — for you to watch all day on 4/20, an unofficial stoner holiday that Wikipedia explains as follows: “April 20 has evolved into a counterculture holiday in North America, where people gather to celebrate and consume cannabis.”

Now order a pizza and put down the Widespread Panic concert DVD. You have some movies to watch.
