Brad Pitt in “True Romance” (1993) dir. Tony Scott


Sorry, Sean Penn. Forget Jeff Spicoli in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.” Brad Pitt played the DEFINITIVE stoner in “True Romance” as Floyd.   Pitt absolutely NAILS the lethargic hang-out-on-the-couch-all-day mentality of a chronic pothead. I don’t ever remember laughing so hard during a film than the moment when Brad Pitt asks the mobsters if they want to smoke a bowl.  It was even more hysterically funny than the infamous scene between Christopher Walken and Dennis Hopper.
