When it comes to stoner movies, you probably picture a couple of guy friends getting high and ending up on an unexpected adventure. And while you'll definitely see some films that follow that plot on the list below, not all stoner movies have to fit that exact description.Namely, the guy thing. There aren't a lot of stoner movies that star women, but as you'll see, there are a few that make the cut if we look outside of the box a little bit. After all, a stoner movie doesn't have to be all about smoking weed or eating an excessive amount of pot cupcakes. Instead it just has to fit a few criteria. Usually, a stoner movie is about friendship, often it takes place during one day, and in every case, something outlandish happens—whether that's a weird night out or the literal apocalypse. And, yeah, there's at least a little bit of weed involved.
