15 Movie Stoners Who Get S**t Done

1
Marty in 'The Cabin in the Woods'

Lionsgate Films
Marty (Fran Kranz) may have seemed like your run-of-the-mill goofy stoner, but much like the movie itself, appearances were deceiving. Not only was Marty able to thwart off some gruesome zombies and come up with brilliant new uses for bongs, but he was able to uncover and foil a big brother plot. Oh, and he decided the fate of all of mankind after battling Sigourney Weaver. What have YOU done today?

New Line Cinema
Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) only had one mission while they had the munchies: attain those delightful little White Castle hamburgers. But, in the process they fought off racial stereotypes, one of them figured out their career path, one of them fell in love, and they both uncovered the previously unknown identity of Neil Patrick Harris.

The Dude in 'The Big Lebowski'

Gramercy Pictures
The Dude. El Duderino. His Dudeness. Jeff Bridges' iconic laid back character not only a talented bowler who had a keen eye for decorating (he could pick a rug that really tied a room together), but he also foiled a millionaire's shady embezzlement and kidnapping plot. We abide.

First Look International
Jane F. (Anna Faris) may have been an out-of-work actress/pothead who consumed a whole plate of weed cupcakes, but it didn't mean she lacked ambition. Even while high she could make a to-do list, like get a job, pay the bills, and replace those cupcakes she lifted.
5
Jay and Silent Bob in 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back'

Dimension Films
Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) went from hanging out in front of a convenience store in New Jersey to going on a wild cross-country trip that included inadvertently liberating monkeys, bagging Shannon Elizabeth, and most importantly, halting a crappy Hollywood production and making them pay for what was rightfully theirs.

JB and KG in 'Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny'

New Line Cinema
Rock and marijuana enthusiasts JB (Jack Black) and KG (Kyle Gass) accomplished what most stoners/musicians (so, musicians) could only dream of: they traveled to hell and back and wrote "The Greatest Song in the World".

Doug in 'Super High Me'

Sixth Way Productions
Comedian/actor/famed 420 enthusiast Doug Benson took the exact premise of Morgan Spurlock's Oscar-nominated documentary 'Super Size Me' and just replaced eating McDonalds for thirty days to find out the effects with smoking weed for thirty days to find out the effects. You know, for the greater good.

Carl in 'Caddyshack'

Warner Bros
Spacey golf course assistant Carl Spackler (Bill Murray) may have been a mumbling, bumbling idiot with a vendetta against rodents who also ate candy bars out of pools, but he was the only one who actively tried to get those damn gophers out of the country club, wasn't he?
9
Dale and Saul in 'Pineapple Express'

Columbia Pictures
Unlike so many stoners on this list, Dale (Seth Rogen) has an actual job, as a process server. But, when he accidentally witnesses a murder, he turns to his dopey, but lovable pot deal Saul (James Franco) to get him out of a jam. Despite some serious mishaps, these two manage to escape certain death and take down the corrupt cop and crime lord who committed the murder.

Cheech and Chong in 'Up In Smoke'

Paramount/Everett Collection
Cheech (Cheech Marin) and Chong (Tommy Chong) didn't just get a lot done in their first full-length movie 'Up in Smoke' (including winning a Battle of the Bands) but they were true blazing trailblazers. Without Cheech and Chong, this list would pretty much cease to exist. And that would be a bummer, man.
