James Franco and Seth Rogen from "Pineapple Express" were on Dan Patrick's show this morning, and Franco referred to "PE" as "the most expensive weed movie ever made." Maybe so, but the arrival of "PE" -- which I have not seen yet -- has had me pondering both the best pot movie ever made and, tangentially, the best pot-smoking scene in a movie. ...
To clarify, by the best pot movie, I mean ones in which the characters smoke pot, not ones where the audience does so before visiting. The list would include "Reefer Madness," above, and of course its musical version; "Dazed and Confused," anything with Cheech and Chong, and "Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle," among others.
When I think of great moments, top of the heap is the "Animal House" scene where Pinto gets stoned. Also memorable are "Fast Times at Ridgemont High's" bit with Spicoli and the shoe, and the party scene in the original "Revenge of the Nerds."
What am I missing?
