#4 – Marty Mikalski, The Fool, from a stoner movie named, “The Cabin in the Woods”

 “Good work, zombie arm.” -Marty

Stoner Movie

“Cabin in The Woods” is a 2012 horror film from director, Drew Goddard and producer, Joss Whedon. The horror comedy pays tribute to past horror films and introduces a interesting twist. Not only that, a great stoner movie hero named Marty makes his debut.

In the film, Marty and four friends plan a weekend away at an isolated cabin. Somehow they don’t notice the many foreboding warnings that it might not be a great idea. “The Cabin in the Woods” is actually an elaborate trap designed and operated by the government to offer blood sacrifices to the old gods.

Marty is one of these unlucky chosen sacrifices. He’s introduced to the audience as he pulls up in a car smoking pot from a huge bong, which usefully converts into a travel mug. Marty is designated as “The Fool” by the government. However, in an interesting plot twist, Marty’s continual bake-on interferes with the other subliminal and chemical pushes allowing him to fight back. Marty is eventually able to discover the secret underground entrance and it’s thanks to him the audience is introduced to a fantastic collection of supernatural evil delight.

Best Stoner Line in Film:

“Statistical fact. Cops will never pull over a man with a huge bong in his car. Why? They fear this man. They know he sees further than they… and he will bind them… with ancient logics.” – Marty

#3 – Jay and Silent Bob from numerous Kevin Smith Films 

15 bucks, little man,
Put that shit in my hand
If that money doesn’t show
Then you owe me, owe me, owe
– Jay

Stoner Movie

Director and writer Kevin Smith first introduced the world to Jay and Silent Bob back in 1994. The fill, called Clerks, took place where they sell weed outside the Quick stop. Throughout the day in the film the characters are seen dancing, loitering and generally harassing passersby. Jay and Silent Bob were embraced by potheads everywhere. It was one of the first times in film that the portrayal of pot dealers was as fun and entertaining rather then scary or dangerous. The characters went on to appear in many of Smith’s other films including Mall Rats, Chasing Amy, and Dogma.

In 2001, the characters were popular enough to get their own stoner movie buddy, “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back”. When Jay and Silent Bob learn that a movie called “Bluntman and Chronic” is coming out featuring their comic book counterparts, they become excited about all the money they will make from from the royalties. After discovering they won’t get any money, they set off on a road trip to Hollywood in order to sabotage the film.

Finally, we have the top of our best stoner movie characters list. The film is Friday and the character is pot smoking guy Smokey. Friday is a 1995 stoner buddy comedy film from director, F. Gary Gray in his directorial debut. The film stars Ice Cube, who also co-wrote the film, as Craig Jones and Chris Tucker as Smokey in his first starring role. After Craig loses his job after being framed for stealing, he hangs out on his front porch and gets high with his best friend Smokey. The film’s success spawned two sequels – Next Friday (2000) and Friday After Next (2002). A fourth film entitled Last Friday has been in the works for several years.

Smokey is a carefree, mischievous, drug dealer who sells weed for Big Worm. the local neighborhood psychopathic supplier. Smokey understandably enjoys smoking weed a lot more then selling it. He has a confrontation with Big Worm who threatens to kill both him and Craig if they do not give him two hundred dollars by 10:00 pm that night.

The film ends with Smokey settling things with Big Worm and promising he is giving up drug dealing and going to rehab. The moment he hangs up the phone, he lights up a joint and ends the film by stating “I was just bullshittin! And you know this man!” And that is why Smokey is the number one top stoner character from film.

“Weed is from the earth.

God put this here for me and you.
