In both promotional materials and in the film, the picture's "Nice Dreams" title was formed by taking the phrase ICE CREAMS in an icy shadowed font and graffiti painting the letter N before the first word with a D over the C. See more »
When Donna's 'old man' Animal steps into the glass elevator, appropriately, none of buttons are illuminated. A moment later, we see him reach for the button panel but the light is already on for the 7th floor before he presses it. The scene cuts away for a few moments but the next medium shot of him in the elevator now shows the 5th floor button lit up, not the 7th which should still be on. See more »

If you've seen other Cheech & Chong movies, then you can probably figure out what sorts of things happen in "Nice Dreams". In this outing, the stoner duo runs an ice cream truck that serves marijuana-based ice cream, with the eventual aim of having an island where topless women serve them. As can be expected, the cops are after the nutty twosome, but the marijuana is having an unusual side effect on Sgt. Stedanko (Stacy Keach).
Other than that, there's a cocaine outing under a table, and even an appearance by Timothy Leary. I nearly died laughing during the sequence in the apartment building.
No, it's not the best C&C movie, but there's definitely no shortage of laughs in "Nice Dreams". Also appearing are Paul Reubens, Evelyn Guerrero, Peter Jason, Linnea Quigley, Sarah Bernhard and Tony Cox.
