The ultimate movies to watch while high
Here’s a question to ponder. What connects a movie that is so clever you wonder if even the writers fully understand its twists and turns, one so bizarre it must have been created in a dream and one so silly it falls into the “so bad it’s good” category.
The simple answer is all three are films that are better enjoyed if you are in an exceptionally mellow frame of mind.
Here, we cover all these areas to identify the ultimate list for those who love to accompany their movie watching with a case of beer or perhaps their luxury smoke of choice. These films are definitely best enjoyed in a state of couch-lock – how many of them have you seen?
David Lynch has a reputation as the Salvador Dali of the film making world. We could have considered titles like Twin Peaks or Eraserhead, but most agree that Mulholland Drive is his magnum opus.
The entire movie is shrouded in an air of mystery and unreality and being a little high is probably the best way to make the connections between the seemingly random events that take place.
The Bed Sitting Room
The cast list from Richard Lester’s surrealist masterpiece reads like a who’s who of British comedy. Spike Milligan, Harry Secombe, Frank Thornton, Peter Cook, Dudley Moore, Arthur Lowe, the list goes on and on. But this is no Carry On-style farce.
Set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland, the characters try to carry on as normal amid the devastation, while one gradually undergoes a strange mutation into a bed-sitting room.
Here’s another movie that’s not all it seems. Make sure any youngsters are well out of the way before you start watching this strange Christmas fantasy featuring a man who is granted the wish to bring his childhood teddy to life.
Ted’s taste for beer, joints, and inappropriate behavior is best enjoyed by viewers who are in a similar frame of mind.
Part road trip, part mob movie, and 100 percent stoner film, this is a must-see for stoners. Seth Rogan and James Franco slip effortlessly into their roles as two pot heads who find themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.
The title refers to a new type of weed that takes the American stoner community by storm and sets all sorts of unexpected wheels in motion.
Jack and Jill
Moving into the “so bad it’s good” category, there are some who might argue that you’d need to be stoned to watch any Adam Sandler movie. This one has him starring in two roles, as Jack and his twin sister Jill.
The biggest question to ponder as you watch the bizarre events unfold is whether Al Pacino was under the influence of something when he agreed to be involved in this car crash. This film has the distinction of being the first to ever win a Razzle in every single category, so must be worth a look on that basis alone.
