The typical stoner film is chock-full of drug use of all kinds (primarily pot), pop culture references, cartoonishly-evil cops, naked women, gross-out humor, and completely-toasted characters with silly names like Smokey, Trip, and Cheech. They’re pure fantasy for potheads, who can lie down and relax while watching the film’s hero do everything they’re too wasted to do: eat amazing food, sleep with beautiful women, all the while having fun with their friends and avoiding the authorities. While some pot films, like Dazed and Confused and Pineapple Express, have emerged as polished and coherent efforts that are pleasing to stoners and non-stoners alike, most other marijuana-heavy comedies are scraggly, unfocused yarns that by the end are just limping toward that 90 minute mark, oftentimes not even having enough story to fill that scant runtime.

Their various struggles might involve deciding whether to stay in or go out, the difficulty of restraint when it comes to cookies, and the challenge of adhering to a daily to-do-list. Frog represents the practical and sensible part of the self, while Toad is emotional and tempestuous. But they’re both deeply realized characters who sometimes defy expectations. In the marvelous story “Shivers,” Frog reveals himself to be a horror fan, and tells Toad about a childhood encounter with the terrifying “Old Dark Frog” that may or may not be true.
