According to Tommy Chong and various sources, this movie made more money on a second-run on double-bill with The Blues Brothers (1980) than it did on its first release. Interestingly, Paul Reubens appears in both films. See more »
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 »

I don't know.

The music was played just a second before the Universal logo appeared. See more »
Also in the TV version, much of the music was replaced with music that exists elsewhere in the movie (notably "Tequila" was replaced during the scene where Cheech and Chong fix their van up). See more »
Cheech & Chong's Next Movie (1980) was the second film to star to pot loving duo of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. The lovable burn out smokers are now roommates. They live in a condemned building looking for ways to score more smoke and just lay about all day. But Cheech is the "responsible" one. He has a job and a steady girlfriend. One day, Cheech wants to get his freak on so he tries to get Chong out of the house. Another problem arises as well, Cheech's brother "Red" (Cheech is another role) is in town and wants to hang with him. Firguring that he could kill two birds with one stone, Cheech pawns Chong off and Red. What kind of adventures will Chong and Red get into? Will Cheech get his freak on? How long will Chong go without some smoke? Just watch CHEECH & CHONG'S NEXT MOVIE to find out!!
Tommy Chong takes over the directorial reigns for the sequel. He received some experience when he did some uncredited work on UP IN SMOKE. Funny but not as good as the first film. But Cheech and Chong fans will enjoy it. Followed by NICE DREAMS.
