Trivia

The film's closing "The End" type title card read: "THAT'S IT MAN!". See more »

Goofs

When Chong is urinating out of the open bathroom window, the camera pulls back slightly and reveals that the "pee" is actually water running from a sponge being held just off frame. The crew member holding the trickling garden hose quickly pulls his hand out of frame, but not fast enough. See more »

Quotes

Pee-wee Herman: Hey, you guys look a little familiar to me!
Dwayne 'Red' Mendoza: Hey, you smell kinda familiar.
Pee-wee Herman: Ha, ha, ha. I'm the comedian. I'll tell the jokes, if you don't mind! If you think it's so easy, why don't you come up here and do it?
Gloria's Mom: Yeah, go up there and tell a joke!
Pee-wee Herman: That's right! You come up here and do it!
Dwayne 'Red' Mendoza: Okay!
Chong: Yeah, man!
Pee-wee Herman: Fuck this. I'm going somewhere else. Hey, hey, here!
[gives Red the finger and storms off]

Alternate Versions

As of December 2001, Comedy Central is showing a semi-restored version (edited for language, obviously) that includes all the drug use and original incidental music ("Tequila", and most notably, the awe-inspiring guitar solo by Steve Lukather). However, the statement by Peewee Herman to police is still missing: "I think they're Iranians!" See more »

Hillarious movie!
12 November 2002 | by kodo88See all my reviews

One of Cheech and Chong's best movies. The part where Chong is on stage trying to re-tell a joke Cheech told earlier is classic! "I'm going to turn this glass into a dick...." I laugh everytime I see this movie. You don't have to be high while checking out this flick. But, you'll certainly laugh a lot harder if you pull out the bong!
