Trivia The dog that ate the burrito after it was thrown onto the ground was not a trained dog, but a local stray. He simply walked into frame, took the burrito, and walked away. Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong ad-libbed around this, and it was left in the movie. See more »
Goofs When Cheech and Chong are crossing the street in Mexico, someone in a passing bus flashes a peace sign at the camera. See more »
