Not they're best, but still gives a debut for Pee Wee
22 January 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Richard Cheech Marin and Thomas Chong's (or really Cheech and Chong) Next Movie doesn't match up to the original and best (Up In Smoke), but it is still funny. A new plot has Chong taking care of Cheech's weird, blond cousin (also played by Cheech), while they have hijinks stirring with the real Cheech waiting for a date. A little flat at times, but it delivers the goods in spots, primarily in Paul Reubens (credited here as the hotel man but sounds and acts like a early Pee Wee) with his first role cameo. B+
