Hollywood’s Best 420ers [Celluloid Hero]
A special edition of Celluloid Hero, bringing you a short list of the best “herbalists” in movies.
I was actually depressed when I looked up this movie and realized it came out in 1998. NINETEEN NINETY-EIGHT!

I gotta admit I didn't really enjoy all of this movie, but Slater is a great character that redeemed things a bit.
It's absolute insanity if you compare Ice Cube's current family-friendly kid movie career to his early stuff like this movie or yknow, being in the "most dangerous rap group in America".
Let's go over the list of Spicoli's awesomeness:
- Orders pizza in class.
- Drives a sweet VW minibus.
- Totally got a guitar pick from Mick Jagger.
- His old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools.
- All he needs are some tasty waves, a cool buzz, and he's fine.
Smokin' weed, smokin' wizz, doin' coke, drinkin' beers, drinkin' beers, beers, beers, rollin' fattys, smokin' blunts, who smokes the blunts? We smoke the blunts!
This aggression will not stand, man... Jeff Lebowski, His Dudeness, or uh, Duder, or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing.
C'mon, was there any doubt these guys would be number one?
