10 Christmas Movies to Watch High
Merry Litmas my stoner family!!
Tis the season to get lit and pop on a Christmas movie. What makes a great Christmas movie, specifically for a stoner? I’d say a movie with lots of laughs.
With that in mind, here are my recommendations for a comedy filled smoking movie session.
Let’s start strong with a strong stoner classic: A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas
In this threequel comedy, ex best friends Harold and Kumar are once again thrown into a crazy stupid situation which has them running around New York City searching for a Christmas Tree on Christmas Eve... sounds simple enough right? Not so much when the night comes to a grinding halt after Harold literally shoots Santa Claus in the face.
Office Christmas Party
Next up, if you think your office Christmas Party gets lit... wait till you see “Office Christmas Party”. When the big boss tries to close her little brothers branch, he and his right-hand man attempt to woo a big client in order to keep their employees’ jobs. All they have to do is bring him to their Christmas party, show him a good time and prove that the workplace culture is good. The night gets pretty wild.
The Night Before
The Night Before is a personal Christmas favourite of mine because... who doesn’t love a Seth Rogan film? For the last 10 years, 3 best friends Ethan, Isaac and Chris have always celebrated Christmas Eve together, getting as inebriated as humanly possible. However, this year, Isaac is expecting his first child soon so the boys know this will be their last year where they can get up to their insane shenanigans. They plan a night of debauchery and hilarity by searching for the iconic ‘Nutcracka Ball’, the holy grail of New York Christmas parties.
Bad Santa is a dark comedy following Willie, a grumpy old man who hates Christmas. Each year him and his dwarf accomplice pose as Santa and his little elf, working in a department store, at Santa’s workshop, letting kids visit him and tell him what they want for Christmas. Each year they endure the snotty nosed kids and uptight mothers so that once Christmas eve rolls around, they can rob the department store. Willie is depressed and an alcoholic mess. His erratic behaviour draws the suspicion of the mall security but when he befriends a young boy, Willie begins to wonder if there may some hope left in him yet.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Now I’m sure everyone’s heard of the Grinch, but how could it not be included? ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ is a timeless classic. The live-action adaptation with Jim Carrey as the Grinch is by far the best of them all. The Grinch decides to ruin Christmas for all of the cheery citizens of Whoville. Just like in Bad Santa, a young child gets in the way of this old Grinch’s unhappiness.
Accidentally transported to the North Pole as a baby one Christmas Eve by Santa himself, Buddy the Elf was brought up amongst Santa’s elves. However, Buddy can’t help but shake the feeling he doesn’t fit in. It might have something to do with him being human amongst elves. Santa informs Buddy of his true origin, New York and encourages him to set out to meet his real dad even if he is on the naughty list. Elf is a very quotable classic that is a must watch each year.
Friday After Next
Friday After Next is the third instalment in the Friday series. ‘Ghetto’ Santa Claus breaks into Craig and Day-Day’s run-down apartment on Christmas Eve and steals all the presents under the tree along with the boys’ rent money. Their only hope to not get evicted during the Christmas Holidays and to get a beating from neighbourhood buff ex-con is to take jobs as security guards at the local mall where they learn some comic lessons about the true meaning of the holidays.
Frank Cross, a wildly successful TV executive, is a grumpy old man who has driven away the love of his life Claire. After firing a staff member on Chirstmas Eve, he is visited by a series of ghosts who give him a chance to re-evaluate his actions and right the wrongs of his past.
Christmas with the Kranks
Every year in the Kranks household, Christmas is very important and there are many family traditions to uphold. However, this year is different as their daughter Blair won’t be home for Christmas for the first time. Feeling a bit down as their daughter won’t be there, Luther decides a romantic cruise to the Caribbean would be a better way to spend their Christmas funds, therefore skipping Christmas. The neighbours and the town in general are not happy about Luther and Nora skipping Christmas, in fact, they are treated as pariahs. Christmas Eve morning rolls around, they are in their Hawaiian shirts, packed and ready to leave for their cruise, when daughter Blair calls and surprises them with news of her return for Christmas and tells them about how excited she is for all of the family’s traditions. Nora pretends everything is happening as normal and now they are left with a few short hours to prepare for the return of their daughter and her new surprise fiancé.
When a Christmas Eve blizzard shuts down the airport, five stranded youths take the opportunity to run wild and create havoc in the terminals. Reminiscent of The Breakfast Club, this group of kids are all gathered in the ‘unaccompanied minors’ room and plan an escape only to be met with airport security here to ruin the fun. ‘Unaccompanied Minors’ is a great light-hearted film, that I believe is quite underrated around this time of year.
So, there they are, 10 Christmas movies that will surely get you in the holiday spirit.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who reads this blog, I have had so much fun this year writing one a week and I plan to keep going into the new year. I hope everyone has a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
