Today we return to our own little March Madness tournament to determine the best stoner movie of all time! We’ve finished another round of eliminations, and the competition is getting tougher.
First, we see Cheech & Chong’s Up in Smoke against Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. This was a tough pairing, but as expected, Cheech & Chong rise above. Why? Because at the end of the day, no matter how much weed Jay and Silent Bob smoke, Cheech and Chong will always smoke more. This can’t be denied. Is that worth a win? We think so.
Our second match-up is less stereotypically stoner. True Romance is a classic on many levels, and it’s definitely not an exclusively weed-centered film. Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas meets True Romance with an equally compelling cast and similarly high ratings. The two things to keep in mind about this particular pairing – True Romance features one insanely high character (Brad Pitt), and ALL of Fear & Loathing’s characters do ALL of the drugs. Unfortunately, for this reason, we have to classify Fear & Loathing as more qualified to hold the “stoner movie” title. But we highly encourage you to watch them both and decide for yourselves!
Next up: Dazed & Confused vs. Fast Times at Ridgemont High. Gonna be honest with you guys, we chose Dazed & Confused because we like it better. They’re both great, typical high school movies from “back in the day,” and we just enjoy watching Dazed & Confused more. Does that diminish the objectivity of this tournament? Sure does. But that’s the beauty of fake tournaments, am I right? Alright, alright, alright.
DAAAAAAAAAMN!! Chris Tucker, you are a gift from God. When it comes down to How High vs. Friday, Friday wins. The soundtrack. The humor. The story. It’s just one of the best out there. How High – we appreciate the effort! But take a hint from Friday and do better next time. Or, cast Chris Tucker.
That’s it for ROUND ONE! Are you ready for the ELITE 8?
