Cheech and Chong meet up by chance on the highway somewhere in California. They go in search of some dope and are accidentally deported to Mexico where in their desperation to get home they agree to drive a van back to the States so they can get back in time for a gig they are due to play. Unaware of the properties from which the van is constructed they make their way back having aquired a couple of female hitch-hikers whilst all the time avoiding the cops whom they are not even aware are following them.Written by

Harry Dean Stanton had a small role as a jail guard who tries to sell "reds", or Seconal, which are downers, to Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong while they're in jail, but the scene was later cut. It has since been restored to the film during its run on TMC cable station. See more »
After getting pulled over by the stoned motorcycle cop, the scenes repeatedly switch back and forth between Chong in the driver's seat to Cheech in the back of the truck with the girls where there is only a curtain separating them. But from the back, the view beyond the curtain should be that of bright daylight but is instead total darkness indicating the back of the truck is a set. See more »
First of the Cheech and Chong movies is probably the best overall, with the duo involved in a plot to drive a van constructed entirely of pot across the Mexican border into the US and featuring Cheech singing "Earache my Eye". Lots of laughs (especially for the "inspired" viewers), but definitely not for everyone. The whole movie revolves around drug use, so not a movie for young children, obviously. However, if you don't mind this, you'll probably laugh your you-know-what off.
