Trivia

The movie is bookended by animated sequences, the opening one spoofing the Universal Pictures logo, it being encapsulated by a large paper joint. Later, Cheech and Chong would make an entire animation film called Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie (2013). See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Red and Chong walk into the music store, Chong picks up a Fender Stratocaster and starts playing. The camera cuts around the store and, when it cuts back to Chong, he is suddenly playing a Gibson Les Paul. See more »

Quotes

Cheech: Man, if you had a second brain, it would die of loneliness, man.

Not they're best, but still gives a debut for Pee Wee
22 January 2001 | by MisterWhiplashSee all my reviews

Richard Cheech Marin and Thomas Chong's (or really Cheech and Chong) Next Movie doesn't match up to the original and best (Up In Smoke), but it is still funny. A new plot has Chong taking care of Cheech's weird, blond cousin (also played by Cheech), while they have hijinks stirring with the real Cheech waiting for a date. A little flat at times, but it delivers the goods in spots, primarily in Paul Reubens (credited here as the hotel man but sounds and acts like a early Pee Wee) with his first role cameo. B+
