After you’re done holiday decorating, kick back with this list of five great holiday movies for cannabis lovers.
‘Tis the season to be jolly! Ok, fine. When you’ve got some good green or tasty edibles, every season is jolly.
Regardless, toking up and watching a movie is a classic get-happy routine. And with the holidays right around the corner, we are presenting our hit list of some of the best holiday movies to watch stoned.
So pack your bowl, grab a vape, or pop your favorite holiday-themed cannabis treat, then press play, and ring in the most wonderful time of the year with some of our favorite seasonal movies.
Friday After Next (2002)
Any stoner knows that Friday is a classic. It’s hilarious and loaded with one-liners that still make their rounds to this day. Friday After Next is Christmas tale that builds on the classic banter of the first Friday installment with some added holiday kick. Join up with Craig and Day-Day as they try to track down Ghetto Santa Claus — who robbed them of their gifts and rent money.
This Christmas story is anything but conventional and good for a few belly laughs. We think it’s so good “you’ll slap ya momma.”
Bad Santa (2003)
This is easily the darkest movie on our list, but no one ever said all holiday movies have to be totally uplifting. In this film, you follow professional thief Willie T. Soke (Billy Bob Thornton) and his sidekick Marcus Skidmore as they impersonate a mall Santa and his elf in order to knock off high dollar department stores.
Sure, Willie isn’t the most wholesome character, but his exploits are hilarious and he ultimately learns the true meaning of Christmas…sort of. Despite it’s relatively uplifting ending, this film definitely isn’t for the whole family.
Die Hard (1988)
What would our list be without a little bit of a hot take? Well, here’s ours: John McClane is a classic hero — skirting the rules and doing what has to be done to take down the terrorists and save the day AND Christmas. Ok, that last part was a little bit of a stretch.
But the movie takes place at Christmastime and Alan Rickman is the best villains ever with his performance as Hans Gruber. Those two factors have secured this classic action film a place on our list.
Forget the “is it or isn’t it” debate about Die Hard’s holiday movie status and just watch it — you won’t regret it.
The Night Before (2015)
Seth Rogen is no stranger to The Sugar Leaf. So, naturally, his holiday movie, The Night Before, earned a place on our list of best stoner holiday movies.
The movie is about three best friends who commit to spending every Christmas Eve together. Despite almost ending the tradition, the guys band together one more time for a night of seasonal hijinks — complete with plenty of weed (duh). Again, this may not be appropriate viewing for the whole family, but it’s good for some laughs and ultimately those wonderful Christmastime warm and fuzzies.
We would get fired if we didn’t include this movie on our list. No, seriously. Verbal threats may have been issued. Anyhow. There was never any doubt that this masterpiece of a film would make our list. It simply has too many amazing moments and one-liners to count.
Just about anything that can go wrong with the Griswold’s Christmas celebration does and the results couldn’t be more hilarious. Maybe your family has its own cousin Eddie or you love Christmas lights as much as Clark. Either way, get blazed, have a good laugh with the Griswold crew, and pray you don’t end up with a membership to the Jelly of the Month Club for Christmas.
