1. Up In Smoke
Starring: Cheech Marin, Tommy Chong
Best bit: Chong revealing that what they’re smoking is part Maui Wowie, part Labrador – his dog ate his stash, so they’re smoking his poo.
2. Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle
Starring: Kal Penn, John Cho
Best bit: The extended dream sequence where Kumar (Kal Penn) falls in love with a bag of weed, marries it and gets into massive arguments with it. It’s stupidmazing. Neil Patrick Harris humping a car seat? Anthony Anderson’s “I’m gonna burn this motherfucker to the ground” cameo? It’s really good. Both sequels are worth a watch as well, although the George W Bush stuff in the second one (a) hasn't stood the test of time and (b) makes for quite uncomfortable viewing.
Starring: Dave Chappelle, Jim Breuer
Best bit: Any scene that puts Dave Chappelle’s main character, Thurgood, against his client Sir Smoke-A-Lot (also played by Chappelle). Or the Bob Saget cameo where he says “I used to suck dick for coke” and an off-screen voice shouts “I seen him!” Actually, no, it's Chappelle doing a Jamaican accent and saying "Right near the beach".
Starring: Ice Cube, Chris Tucker
Best bit: John Witherspoon coming out of the toilet and saying “Don’t nobody go in the bathroom for about 35 to 45 minutes”. It’s also the birthplace of the “Bye Felicia” meme. You're welcome, internet. There are constant rumours of a fourth one that, yeah, we'll watch the shit out of.
5. How High
Starring: Method Man, Redman
Best bit: Redman approaching the Vice President’s daughter and alerting her of his interest by barking like a dog.
6. Mac & Devin Go To High School
Starring: Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa
Best bit: To be honest, the soundtrack is better than the film itself, but the soundtrack wouldn’t exist without the film, innit, so there we go.
7. Fast Times At Ridgemont High
Starring: Sean Penn, Phoebe Cates
Best bit: The most iconic moment is the fantasy sequence of Phoebe Cates’ exit from a swimming pool and subsequent de-bikini-ing, but there’s a lot to be said for Sean Penn twatting a chequered Vans shoe against his haid and saying “Hear that? That’s my skull!”
8. High School
Starring: Adrien Brody, Michael Chiklis
Best bit: Oscar-winner Adrien Brody putting the same amount of commitment into his supporting turn as the fully-tattooed, tweaked-out Psycho Ed as he did making harrowing Holocaust drama The Pianist.
9. Pineapple Express
Starring: James Franco, Seth Rogen
Best bit: A paranoia-fuelled rush to destroy mobile phones turning into a frenzied, panicked run through a forest. Or the bit when James Franco tries to kick out the window of the car he’s driving and gets his foot stuck in it.
10. Dude, Where’s My Car?
Starring: Ashton Kucher, Seann William Scott
Best bit: “Dude, what does my tattoo say?” “Sweet! What about mine!” “Dude! What does mine say? “Sweet! What about mine?” “Dude! What does mine say?”
11. Super Troopers
Starring: Jay Chandrasekhar, Brian Cox
Best bit: The vast, vast majority of it. Shenanigans. Miaow. Licence and registration, chickenfucker. It’s French for give me some fuckin’ cola. Super Troopers is just great.
12. Van Wilder
Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Kal Penn
Best bit: It’s a rarity to say this about any motion picture, but the best bit is the silly dog’s funny floating balls.
13. Grandma’s Boy
Starring: Allen Covert, Linda Cardellini
Best bit: Shit, dunno. The bit with the monkey driving? Honestly, Grandma’s Boy’s pretty shit.
