Trivia

The California Highway Patrol officers driving the patrol car were dressed as motorcycle officers. The only time CHP motorcycle officers use cars is during rainy weather, and the only time two officers drive together is on the graveyard shift. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Cheech and Chong's third film: Nice Dreams.
17 August 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Nice Dreams (1981) was the second sequel to UP IN SMOKE. The lovable burned out slackers are selling "ice cream". But there nothing more than a front for there drug dealing (pot what else?). Sargent Stedanko is back from UP IN SMOKE. He's no longer the same straight laced cop. Stedanko has turned into the very element he's been trying to catch. The duo is stashing away some smoke for a rainy day. They want to pull off one big score so they could retire in the "tropics". Unfortunately, Sargent Stedanko and his motley crew of narcs want to bust them and lock 'em up forever. Can Cheech and Chong "retire" in luxury? Will Stedanko finally bust them? What will happen to the duo when they stray away from their favorite drug and experiment with others? How does the good doctor Timothy Leary fit into the picture? Watch NICE DREAMS and you'll find out!!

Another funny film from the team of Cheech and Chong. I find it to be hilarious. Not a classic by any means. Just a funny movie that stars everyone's favorite stoners.

Recommended.
