Trivia

The movie is bookended by animated sequences, the opening one spoofing the Universal Pictures logo, it being encapsulated by a large paper joint. Later, Cheech and Chong would make an entire animation film called Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie (2013). See more »

Goofs

When Chong and Red are walking around the hotel with Red's luggage (just before the police sirens get their attention), the camera tilts and pans to keep them on screen. As the camera moves, shadows of the camera and crew become visible at the bottom left corner of the screen. See more »

Second film starring the Cheech and Chong duo.
17 August 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Cheech & Chong's Next Movie (1980) was the second film to star to pot loving duo of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. The lovable burn out smokers are now roommates. They live in a condemned building looking for ways to score more smoke and just lay about all day. But Cheech is the "responsible" one. He has a job and a steady girlfriend. One day, Cheech wants to get his freak on so he tries to get Chong out of the house. Another problem arises as well, Cheech's brother "Red" (Cheech is another role) is in town and wants to hang with him. Firguring that he could kill two birds with one stone, Cheech pawns Chong off and Red. What kind of adventures will Chong and Red get into? Will Cheech get his freak on? How long will Chong go without some smoke? Just watch CHEECH & CHONG'S NEXT MOVIE to find out!!

Tommy Chong takes over the directorial reigns for the sequel. He received some experience when he did some uncredited work on UP IN SMOKE. Funny but not as good as the first film. But Cheech and Chong fans will enjoy it. Followed by NICE DREAMS.

Recommended.
