Being comfortably high can be a productive time for most people. The mood is right, tensions seem far away, and nothingness is all you have. When you are high, one of the best things you can do is watch a movie, especially one that takes you on frantic ride of whimsical laughter. So, here’s for the next time you’re high, a list of the top 10 movies that you must try watching.
10. The Holy Mountain (1973):
Ok, now, probably this one’s a movie that hardly makes sense when you’re sober, but try watching it when you are high. A group of nine men in their quest to find the immortal God is more than what we can term bizarre. But apparently, seven wealthy people, a guide, and his Christ like (only in appearance) assistant are brought together by the hand of fate to undertake this journey of mystical stupidity.
9. Naked Gun (1988):
Many claim this movie cannot make sense unless watched over and over again, and even then the chances are but little. But, what if you’re high? Maybe that will take you on a spree of uncontrolled laughter, wanting to become part of the spoof. According to the plot, Queen Elizabeth II of England is coming to town, and Ludwig the bad guy plans to assassinate her using an empty head baseball player.
8. Punch Drunk Love (2002):
A romantic comedy drama, this one earns Barry Eagan (Adam Sandler) lots of sympathy, especially when you’re high. Bullied and damned by six sisters, poor Barry is never able to fall in love, but then one day he finds a harmonium, and also meets a mysterious women; and this changes his life forever. His romantic journey begins, and so does some serious thrill and goon fighting.
7. Office Space (1999):
Describing the typical agony of all IT persons during the 1990s in America, Office Space is a satirical movie that garners universal sympathy by all audience.

5. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004):

He decides for the same thing, but while the procedure of erasing his memory is underway, he realizes that he truly loves her, and would do anything to get her back.
4. Natural Born Killers (1994):
One hell of a movie, Mickey and Mallory, the two lovers and outcasts are set on a spree of murdering random people on the streets, not for money, or for revenge, but for the simple pleasure that sets in the kicks. Their story is glorified by the media, and so they almost attain the status of national villains so to say. At every scene of slaughter, they leave exactly one person alive, who then tells their story to the police and the media.
3. Little Nicky (2000):
Not such a hit at the box office, Little Nicky is one of those movies best enjoyed when you are high. Try imagining the world of kid whose mother is an angel and father a devil.

The two decide to live together and have the baby, but does Ben, the careless, child like person, really have it what it takes to have a child?
1. The Big Lebowski (1998):
