The meaning and relevance of the movie's title is as follows. The plot is one in which everyone has a problem. Hence the title Things Are Tough All Over (1982). But everyone's problem is different. Cheech and Chong's problem is that they don't have any money. It's cold and they want to get out of Chicago. The Arabs' problem is that they have too much money and are trying to launder it as fast as they can. Everyone's problems collide when the Arabs recruit Cheech and Chong to drive a limousine, with $5 million hidden in it, to Las Vegas. See more »

I really liked this movie. Besides being funny, it really did a decent job of illustrating how nobody's life tends to be a a bed of roses regardless of who somebody is or isn't. I've often thought of the film to put things in a different perspective when I've found myself envying another person for whatever reason. Chances are, it's not easy being anybody.
It was largely a departure from all of the drug humor in previous films, but the drug was going at full steam ahead around when it came out. Besides, it was about time they branched out and explored new humor horizons.
