25 Best Stoner Movies on Netflix (March 2024)

Stoner movies have been around since the ’70s. Classics like ‘Sausage Party,’ ‘Dazed and Confused’ etc., are often regarded as benchmark stoner movies, albeit for no reason. Based on the potency of what a person smokes, we have also witnessed movies like ‘Dude, Where’s My Car?’, ‘Knocked Up,’ ‘Growing Op,’ etc., which have crossed all the limits of being called “stoned,” and they all stand way above the regular movies on the “stoned” index.

Netflix has a great collection of “stoner movies,” which includes not only great films that will blow your mind but also a documentary about marijuana usage and movies that, in one way or the other, involve drugs. They are all going to surprise you in different ways.

25. The Other Guys (2010)

Directed by Adam McKay and starring Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, ‘The Other Guys’ is a goofy buddy cop action comedy that follows NYPD officers Allen Gamble (Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Wahlberg). Chained to their desks, they are mocked by their peers. However, when the two best field agents (Samuel L. Jackson and Dwayne Johnson) die in a mission, our titular duo gets the chance to prove their worth and ultimately get to take on multi-billionaire Sir David Ershon and Lendl Global CEO Pamela Boardman, who are connected via a godforsaken scaffolding permit violation. But Gamble is merely an accountant, while Hoitz’s past keeps him from risking stuff. Will they be successful in their new objective? To find out, you can watch ‘The Other Guys’ right here.

24. Sausage Party (2016)

An outright adult comedy custom-made for stoners, ‘Sausage Party’ is an animated feature directed by Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan. It follows a group of anthropomorphic grocery store food items who are waiting to go to the Great Beyond where the humans supposedly take them. But when they find out that the Great Beyond is basically death, they chalk out a plan to avoid it. This realization and the steps they undertake to avoid their doom are underscored by bizarre sexual intonations and no-holds-barred curses. ‘Sausage Party’ is a deliberately ridiculous movie that features the voices of Seth Rogen who plays a sausage, and Kristen Wigg who plays a hot dog bun, along with Jonah Hill, James Franco, Edward Norton, Paul Rudd, Michael Cera, and Conrad Vernon. It can be streamed here.

23. The Change-Up (2011)

In the comedy film ‘The Change-Up,’ directed by David Dobkin, two friends, portrayed by Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman, experience a bizarre body-swap after a night of drinking.

Filled with raunchy humor and heartfelt moments, ‘The Change-Up’ explores themes of friendship, identity, and the importance of understanding one another.

Directed by Jeff Tremaine, ‘The Dirt’ chronicles the sex, drugs, and rock and roll-filled tale of the heavy metal/glam metal band Mötley Crüe. The story begins in 1973 when Frank Carlton Feranna Jr. Leaves his mother’s home after enduring years of abuse. He built his career as a musician over several years before meeting drummer Tommy Lee around 1981. After the guitarist Mick Mars and lead guitarist Vince Neil joined the prospective group, they decided on the name Mötley Crüe. The group begins experiencing success not long after. Their albums sell, and they earn millions only to spend them immediately. The more popular and wealthy they become, the more audacious and outrageous their lives get until they start to realize that they can’t go back and redo the past. You can watch the movie here.

19. Dude (2018)

Four high school friends who are entering their last year – Lily, Chloe, Amelia, and Rebecca – are generally fooling around, smoking weed, dealing with their family problems, and generally talking about strenuous relationships, boys, proms, vulgarity, and weed. As they head into their final year, they start dealing with the losses in their lives: the pain of losing their friends, the parting of ways owing to jobs, and the typical withdrawal symptoms one faces while leaving school for the last time. About the weed, there’s a donkey-kong-shaped bong named Donkey Bong that has been repeatedly focused upon throughout the film without any reason; however, apparently, it consumed a lot of the film’s budget. The movie was criticized and appreciated equally and remains to be one of the best Lucy Hale movies out there. You may watch the film here.

18. The Package (2018)

black comedy at the outset, and with an IMDB rating of 5.5 (you’re the best judge), ‘The Package’ is mostly set around a group of five friends/crushes/acquaintances – Sean, Jeremy, and Donnie – the boys who were planning on going to this camping trip, which is later joined by Becky (Jeremy’s sister) and Sarah. During the booze-filled fun night the folks are having, with campfire, profanity, and everything, Jeremy happens to cut off his organ by accident. This sends everyone into a frenzy, with folks searching for his organ and aiming to take it to a hospital within 12 hours for penile reattachment surgery.

Everything happens with a comedy of errors and horrors, with the remaining four seemingly failing at every task they’re picking up. Long story short, ‘The Package’ is hilarious and, at the same time, a lot clichéd with jokes that we’ve previously seen in many other movies. Still, it is like a breath of fresh air compared to the movies we’ve had so far on the list. Feel free to check out the movie here.

17. The Do-Over (2016)

Max and Charlie are old buddies. As they are fed up with their routine lives, they hatch up an evil yet effective plan to get out of their shells and be something else. While on a boat trip, Max blows up their boat, and when Charlie wakes up, Max proposes that they can have a new and different life by assuming other identities. They relocate to Puerto Rico and assume the identities of Dr. Ronald Fishman and Butch Ryder, respectively. Soon, they start getting troubled by the pasts of their newfound namesakes. ‘The Do-Over’ is a typical Adam Sandler movie that would give you both moments of laughter and cringe. Yet, it is one of those stoner movies that can be watched over the weekend. You can watch ‘The Do-Over’ here.

16. Bad Trip (2021)

While the title may hint at a “stoner movie,” rest assured that this one is unquestionably just that and worth your time. Directed by Kitao Sakurai, ‘Bad Trip’ is a raucously riotous stoner comedy that’ll have you in stitches from start to finish. This hidden-camera prank-infused film follows two best friends, played by Eric Andre and Lil Rel Howery, on a cross-country road trip gone hilariously wrong. As they embark on their journey, they stumble into a series of outlandish and uproarious situations, all while real unsuspecting bystanders become unwitting participants in their absurd escapades. With its blend of outrageous gags, genuine reactions, and a side-splittingly funny cast, ‘Bad Trip’ is a good enough eyecatcher for your next trip as it takes you on a wild ride through America’s absurdity. You can watch ‘Bad Trip’ here.

15. The Lonely Island Presents: The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience (2019)

‘The Lonely Island Presents: The Unauthorized Bash Brothers Experience’ is a zany, musical stoner extravaganza that dives headfirst into absurdity. Directed by Mike Diva, this mockumentary follows The Lonely Island members Andy Samberg and Akiva Schaffer as they transform into the fictional baseball duo, The Bash Brothers. Through a series of outrageously catchy songs and surreal visuals, the film hilariously parodies the ego-fueled excesses of ’80s sports culture. With its infectious tunes, offbeat humor, and mind-bending visuals, it’s the perfect concoction for a stoner movie night. The nonsensical plot and outlandish characters provide a trippy and comical experience that pairs wonderfully with an organically altered state of mind. You may watch the movie here.

14. Me Time (2022)

Directed by Louie Schwartzberg, ‘Fantastic Fungi’ unveils a whole new world in front of our eyes and, for those stoned, a whole new universe. While this documentary film serves as a study for those interested in knowing more about mushrooms and fungi, the reason we have incorporated it in this list is due to the film’s visuals that are bound to cause stoned people to lose their already widened minds. As the film reveals more and more about these gorgeous and ancient living creatures, we realize just how little we know about them, thereby instilling in us an overwhelming feeling of awe and wonder. You can stream ‘Fantastic Fungi’ here.

If you are someone who enjoys movies like the ‘Harold & Kumar’ series or ‘Pineapple Express,’ then this one is definitely for you. This is a story about two best friends who make it to a hip-hop concert on counterfeit tickets and manage to annoy a lot of people on the way, including a dangerous drug dealer. This film has Josh Peck (of Drake & Josh fame) as Chris, Tony Revolori as Chester Tamborghini, and also Andy Samberg, who somehow finds his way to movies like this. Chester Tam, who has written and directed the film, also plays the role of Jay Morrison. Did you notice that Chester’s character may have been named after Chester Tam himself? Not to be taken seriously, this film is simply an entertainer. You can check out the film here.

9. Brahman Naman (2016)

Netflix’s first Indian original movie is a story about four losers, neither of whom can manage to get a girlfriend or convince their parents that they are grown up to make their own decisions. All they are good at are quizzing, drinking, and thinking about sex (of which they don’t get any) all the time. The film is set in the 1980s in the south Indian city of Bangalore. These four boys do get a chance to be by themselves when they visit Kolkata for the finals of a national-level quiz, but misadventure follows them there as well. Despite being a sex comedy, the best part of this film is that it never glorifies sexual objectification and ultimately shows how entitled Indian upper-caste men can be. This is exactly why the director Quashiq Mukherjee highlights the leading character’s cast that he is a “Brahman,” in the title of the film. You can watch ‘Brahman Naman’ here.

8. Special Correspondents (2016)

Written and directed by Ricky Gervais, this Netflix original comedy film is the story of radio journalist Frank Bonneville (Eric Bana) and sound technician Ian Finch (Gervais), both of whom are assigned to visit Ecuador and cover the political uprising that is taking place in the country. When it comes to light that Finch has lost both their passports, the two men decide to hide in a cafe owned by a Spanish couple and fake their reports from there. To sensationalize their news, they invent a man called Emilio Santiago Alvarez and say that he is closely linked to the uprising that is taking place.

This alerts the U.S. government, which thinks that these two Americans might be in danger. Things soon begin to escalate out of hand as Bonneville and Finch worry that they will be found out. While Gervais’ humor is on point, it does not penetrate deep into social problems or any serious concerns, for that matter. Be that as it may, ‘Special Correspondents’ remains a highly entertaining film. You may watch it here.

7. Have a Good Trip: Adventures in Psychedelics (2020)

This documentary is a “trip” in itself- from the visuals to the stories. Watch celebrities talk about their experiences and experiments with psychedelics. Not only will this give you random trivia and the “ultra-stoned” anecdotes from some of the most interesting people, but it will be highly relatable (forgive the pun). Writer-producer Donick Cary shared that the reason to make a film like this is not to encourage or discourage it but simply to demystify the concept and introduce it as a rational and balanced point of conversation. Some of the people you will see in this documentary are Sting, Ben Stiller, Carrie Fischer, and David Cross, among many others. You can watch the movie here.

6. Between Two Ferns: The Movie (2019)

Zack Galifianakis’ comedy talk show ‘Between Two Ferns’ had gained immense popularity on YouTube before Netflix decided to order a movie on the same. The film centers around Galifianakis, who plays himself and hosts ‘Between Two Ferns’ on public access television. However, when comedian Will Ferrell sees the show, he decides to upload it to his comedy platform Funny Or Die. Galifianakis and the show become a laughing stock after this, but he does get a chance to interview numerous celebrities all across America. The film follows Galifianakis and his many misadventures as he goes about the country and meets several well-known faces. If you have been a fan of the original YouTube show, you will have no problem understanding or relating to the humor of the film. Galifianakis’ deadpan humor works well with the ridiculous situations he finds himself in. You may watch the movie here.

5. The Legend of Cocaine Island (2018)

‘The Legend Of Cocaine Island’ is a documentary film, but it packs a powerful punch enough to give you the thrills you might expect from a feature production. The reason behind this is mainly the fact that ‘The Legend Of Cocaine Island’ recreates Florida-based business Rodney Hyden’s journey to make some quick money when the 2008 financial crisis destroyed his business. He wanted to locate a bag of cocaine worth around $2 million somewhere on the Caribbean shore. Some undercover cops sent him a picture of a bag and convinced him that it was full of cocaine. They then waited patiently to arrest Hyden once he met them to share the profits. This documentary shows us how desperate some people became after the economic crisis to save their lives from drifting down the drain. Highly entertaining with comical moments interspersed between the drama, this is a movie you must check out. Feel free to check it out here.

The documentary ‘Grass Is Greener’ is something that several people are sure to be interested in since it deals with the history of marijuana in America, its socio-cultural effects, and how the government has always been after the users and distributors of the same. The film also points out to us how the crackdown on marijuana has been a racist ploy that has destroyed the lives of many young black males by putting them behind bars. The documentary features interviews of influential people like Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Sen Dog, DMC, and others who put forward their views regarding the United States’ culture around marijuana. You can watch ‘Grass Is Greener’ here.
