This round of March Madness (happening in April, like it does), we saw some of our favorite movies eliminated. We wish they could all be winners. But this is a tournament after all, and someone’s gotta lose.
Today, our match-ups were…
Super Troopers vs. Cheech & Chong’s Up in Smoke
Pineapple Express vs Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle
The Big Lebowski vs. Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas
Dazed & Confused vs. Friday
It didn’t happen like this on purpose, but the first movie listed in each pairing was ELIMINATED. Why?!?!?!?!
Super Troopers and Pineapple Express are both excellent, more recent favorites. But up against pure stoner classic duos like Cheech & Chong or Harold & Kumar, they unfortunately HAD to get the boot. If our dads know who Cheech & Chong are, they are some CLASSIC stoners. Have they heard of Super Troopers? Not the ones we’re thinking of.
The Big Lebowski may be the most painful loss this round. Fear & Loathing barely pulled this one off, and only because of how amazing (BUT ILLEGAL) it is to watch while stoned. We don’t know this firsthand, only from our buddies in Colorado, of course.
We mostly love Dazed & Confused for Matthew McConaughey, but Friday is an all-around more solid, more entertaining film. And we like to laugh from our guts, which Friday makes us do. So there you have it.
Let’s recap. Now, we’re left with the FINAL FOUR of stoner movies:
1. Cheech & Chong’s Up in Smoke, who we’ll see next round facing…
2. Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle. That will be a battle.
3. Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, who will have to put up a good fight against…
A tough round. Who do you expect to see going into the semi-finals?
