Munchies and a Movie: Make Your 420 “Smiley Face” Themed!

Most weed-themed movies are all about men. As if women and non-binary people haven’t been/aren’t smoking pot and looking ten thousand times cuter than men! I don’t get it y’all. For a high femme like myself then, Smiley Face is a breath of fresh air (and also currently $46 on Amazon!). The first time I saw it, my smoking buddy and I were getting stoned after a cappella rehearsal. It was our weekly ritual. Rehearse, smoke, watch a movie Alaina hadn’t seen, and do homework. I miss that.

Anyway, Smiley Face.The film stars Anna Faris as Jane F, an aspiring actor, as well as some other dudes, and it isn’t 420 for me unless I watch it. It’s your typical stoner movie: a high person is high, does something to accidentally get a little higher, and then spends all day getting a lot higher somehow while trying to fix the thing she messed up when she accidentally got high. It’s hilarious!

I’m here today to help you model your very own 420 after this very movie! We’ve got a style guide, we’ve got a playlist, we’ve got a couple of recipes. Everything you need to make your 420 feel as close to a movie as possible.


Style Thief: Jane F, the Stoner Girl

When it comes to fashion, Jane chooses comfort first. After all, if you’re driving around LA County all day trying to pay back your roommate after you accidentally stole their weed, you’d want to feel comfortable too.

Ever noticed that most pot-themed playlists are just a bunch of dudes? Well not anymore!

  1. I am starting to become a fan of Anna Faris so this would be good to watch. Personally I am partial to the TV show Weeds, because of Mary Louise Parker. *swoon* One of my favorite song for the day is from a southern rap group CunninLynguists – Never Come Down (The Brownie Song). But, in college I would get high to Let’s Call it Love from Sleater Kinney as it helped me get lost in the moment. Just a real good jam.

    This article is fairly informative. https://arstechnica.com/science/2018/04/here-are-the-types-of-marijuana-best-for-stress-and-anxiety-according-to-users
