Not up to Cheech & Chong originals, but funny anyways
10 September 2004 | by (Gallup, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie. It has some lame moments, but then I think all of the C&C, except for Up In Smoke (an absolute classic), have a few of those. I'd rate this better than Still Smokin' and definitely a step above The Corsican Brothers (which I really didn't care for).

Cheech & Chong had a hard time of it thru the 80's, with the Drug Wars in full swing, and were basically blackballed from Hollywood. Cheech caved in, and went "straight" to keep working (since he is the son of a cop, I can't blame him too much). Tommy never gave up, and suffered for it. This movie was an attempt to make a little money, and I think the main reason the family fills out the cast is because they would work cheap. The few others (C. Thomas Howell, Michael Winslow, Judd Nelson) are in this film mostly as favors, including the cameo by Cheech. Don't take this as gospel, it is just what I've heard thru the grapevine. I also heard they almost didn't get this film published, the "heat" was still on.

The plot is thin, but so is the plot in every other C&C movie. Cheesy at times, it still has some great lines and a few laugh out loud moments. Oscar material it ain't, but as a silly stoner movie it isn't half bad. If you are looking for Northern Lights, the commercial Mex quality will disappoint. Don't expect too much, and you'll probably enjoy it.

Pull up a dick and have a seat.

All units, we have a report of a crazy mutha-fuka with a gun... a crazy mutha-fuka with a gun.
