10 Hilarious Movies To Watch High On Netflix
If you’re a stoner, you might have already probably seen this movie. However, Superbad is definitely a film that you can enjoy more than once. The plot revolves around two high-school boys willing to give it their all to score some booze for a party to which they managed to bag an invite. You can watch it for the hilarious on-screen bromance between Michael Cera and Jonah Hill and the misadventures they stumble into on their quest.
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
You may be starting to think that we’re biased towards Michael Cera, but it turns out he’s just in a lot of great stoner flicks! In this movie, Cera is out to win the heart of the girl of his dreams. The catch? Well, he only has to get past and defeat her long list of evil exes to win her over. The plot is trippy enough on its own, but we guarantee you’ll also enjoy the visuals, especially under the influence of Mary Jane.
How far would you go for the perfect Spring Break trip? Well, the four protagonists of this film, played by Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Rachel Korine, and Ashley Benson, go as far as armed robbery to fund their holiday. However, their ‘innocent’ vacation turns into a full-fledged crime spree when they’re rescued from jail by a drug dealer/rapper, played by James Franco. Harmony Korine is known for his trippy movies, and if you like this film, you should also check out his ‘Kids’ and ‘Gummo.’
I Am Mother
If science fiction is your go-to genre when you’re stoned, then you’ll LOVE this borderline scary futuristic take on a mother-daughter relationship between human and machine. Rugaard was born and raised in a bunker by a robot designed to help repopulate the world after extinction. As Rugaard grows, her curiosity leaves her yearning to explore the world beyond the bunker. However, ‘Mother’ is not too happy with that decision. The tension that builds up throughout the film between the two characters will keep you on the edge of your seat.
The premise of this movie is so simple, but it truly shows the dark side of humanity. The Platform is set in a fictional vertical prison structure called ‘the pit.’ The residents are all placed on different floors, and every day, there’s enough food placed for everyone on the descending Platform. When we say enough, we mean as long as everyone takes their fair share of the food. But as one would expect, events take a dark turn. People turn against each other with selfish motives while surviving on bones and scraps.
Black Mirror: Bandersnatch
Have you ever been part of a movie that lets you control their narrative? Yes, you heard us right.

Black Mirror is known for showing us what technology holds for us in the future, and they gave us a taste of it with this futuristic concept film.
Our Idiot Brother
You know you have a great film on your hands when it has Paul Rudd in it. It’s very hard not to love the guy. In this film, he’s going to charm you even harder as he plays the lead as the lovable idiot brother, Ned. He’s a funny, endearing guy who is trying to catch a break after an unfortunate arrest for selling marijuana. However, he manages to win over his family and the audience, as he lives with them. Towards the end, you’ll realize that maybe, just maybe, he’s not such an idiot after all.
I’m Thinking Of Ending Things
This is another brilliant masterpiece from the twisted mind of Charlie Kauffman. He’s known for writing crazy films like Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind and Being John Malkovich. A simple story about a woman who decides to accompany her short-term boyfriend to his parent’s farm for the holidays turns into a mind-boggling, insanely trippy adventure. Whatever expectations you had before starting this movie, you will never be prepared for the trip this movie takes you on.
Imagine this – you wake up in a dark, unfamiliar room with 50 strangers. Every few minutes, a new person dies. Then, to make things even more trippy, you have to decide who lives and who dies. This is the plot of this psychological drama that will keep you on your toes till the very last minute of the film and make you question everything you thought you knew about the human psyche.
Post a climate engineering experiment gone wrong, the world is experiencing an ice age. All the remaining survivors are stuck together on a train. The train is separated into sections, and class divisions rule the social structure. The poorest people are treated like scum while the rich get the royal treatment.
