Trivia

In the version edited for TV, the duffel bag of pot they're cruising around with is filled with 'diamonds' instead. And instead of getting them insanely high, the aliens simply teach them to 'fly like Peter Pan'. 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: [waiting on date to arrive] Man, hurry up, bitch. I got lots of shit to do. Shit. If that bitch doesn't hurry up and get here, I'll have to wait some more.

Alternate Versions

In the original theatrical release, Chong is lifted up into the space ship, then we don't see him again until he wakes Cheech. When the "bag of diamonds" version is shown on TV, it often includes a few minutes of Chong aboard the spaceship. See more »

something good to say about this film..............er
21 April 2001 | by Four2thefloorSee all my reviews

This is possibly the worst film I have ever seen for the following reasons.... 1. absolutely no story 2. Irritating characters 3. NOT FUNNY the only things you laugh at is how terrible the whole thing is.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS
