Whether you feel sentimental about the approaching holidays or dread the added hassle, there is a movie out there featuring a kindred spirit. While known for their sugary sweet themes, many holiday movies are a buzz kill. If you're looking to kick back and relax with a holiday movie, consider these five holiday movies that won't ruin your high:
1. Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000)
Not particularly feeling the holiday spirit this year? They say misery loves company and there is no better company during the holiday season than Jim Carrey as The Grinch. While watching the classic animated Dr. Seuss rendition is a beloved tradition, the Jim Carrey version elevates the story with musical numbers, exciting graphics and impressive costumes. While suitable for the whole family, "Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas" is much more enticing while stoned.
2. 8 Crazy Nights (2002)
With the success of his Hanukkah song, Adam Sandler expanded the sentiment by going animated in the movie "8 Crazy Nights." Despite the animation, this movie is actually catered toward adults. Facing dilemmas like legal troubles and alcoholism, the party animal character, voiced by Adam Sandler, must learn the true meaning of the holiday spirit. Dubbed as naughty and nice, the movie is just the right mix for whatever mood you find yourself in.
3. A Christmas Story (1983)
Reconnect with the spirit of your inner child with this classic Christmas tale. All little Ralphie wants for Christmas is a Red Ryder BB gun, but with every adult expressing concerns over safety, Ralphie tries a number of antics to get the coveted gun. From a risque lamp to a Chinese Christmas dinner, "A Christmas Story" is even more enjoyable while stoned. With light-hearted humor, this movie is sure to make you laugh with little thought -- leaving you plenty of time to combat those munchies.
4. A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas (2013)
Picking up six years after stoner pals Harold and Kumar's last adventure, "A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas" is packed full of holiday spirit and plenty of weed too. Join the two as they reach new highs -- and lows -- after burning down Harold's father-in-laws prized Christmas tree.
5. Bad Santa (2003)
"Bad Santa" aims to eliminate sappy holiday sentiments and instead, keeps it real. When "Bad Santa" (Billy Bob Thorton) isn't ripping off malls while posing as a jolly mall Santa, he spends the holidays drinking, smoking and lounging on the couch. Despite his countless habits, however, he can't seem to escape the spirit of the season. With plenty of raunchy humor and outlandish scenarios, being stoned is certainly the only way to truly appreciate "Bad Santa."
