Twenty-something Oliver (Seth Cassell) hasn't really gotten far in his life, he still lives with his dad (Pete Gardner), hates his dad's trophy wife (Briana Lane), has a job he hates at his dad's garage, and his life seriously lacks perspective. So he has decided to make the most of it ... and see to it that he's stoned all of the time.

It's not that this doesn't get him in trouble, but never more so than when a car he has picked up from a customer is stolen - and somehow this leads to him stealing an ice cream truck. Then though he runs over a scooter, which might just be the best thing that has happened to him while stoned, as this scooter belongs to lovely Megan (Brea Grant), and despite the fact that she is a prim and proper girl who writes Veronica Mars fan fiction and that Oliver has not only cost her her scooter but later also her job, she sees something and falls for Oliver - and he for her as well -, and she encourages him to get his life back on track ... by things like using the ice cream truck to actually sell ice cream. Oh, and actually try to find the stolen car of course. Oliver and Megan even succeed on both accounts, but when they find out the guy (Jason E. Kelley) who has stolen the car is not exactly someone who's just giving it back but a guy who packs heat as a habit, it's up to the two of them and Oliver's best friend and weed dealer Benson (Jim Mahoney) to come up with a plan to retrieve the car unscathed - but given that even Megan has taken to weed by now, the plan might just as well be a suicide commando ...

 

So ok, Oliver, Stoned. is a stoner comedy (and the title is a bit of a give-away), so you simply cannot expect the film's humour to be 100% non-moronic, plus you'll probably be unable to appreciate at least some of the jokes if you have never experimented with recreational drugs - but that said, for a stoner comedy, the movie has also a surprising amount of heart to it, as its lead characters actually have more depth than their stoner habits would lead one to believe, and they actually carrying a well-structured story as well. And add to that a subtle directorial effort that doesn't rely on stoner clichés too terribly much, and a likeable ensemble cast, and you've got yourself a fun little film, really.
