Cheech and Chong fly to the marijuana capital of the world, Amsterdan, for a film festival where they take Dolly Parton and Burt Reynold's place in a limo, suite, press conference and performance. They throw in some sketches as well.

In the sequence where Chong & Red get invitations to a massage parlor from the cocaine-seeking roller-hooker, you can see a sign in the background for a Lincoln Savings and Loan- the now defunct enterprise that started the savings and loan crisis in the 1980's. See more »

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 »
Hey, I grew up on Cheech and Chong films. Yet amazingly I'm not a potsmoker today. This is probably the second best of the lot, closely following "up in smoke".
If you don't like Cheech Marin or Tommy Chong, this movie probably isn't for you. Although Cheech's recent work doesn't resemble his work with Chong. If you like Tommy Chong in that 70's show, you will most likely like this movie. And if you have any interest in Paul Reubins in his pre-pee wee herman years, this is the movie for you.
The story isn't much, but it has a semblance of a story to keep things moving fairly smoothly- unlike some other Cheech and Chong films. The gags and jokes work very well for the times, and hold up fairly well over time. This movie is less a variety show than later Cheech and Chong films. Although there are a couple sequences that don't seem to fit very well with the movie.
This movie is a must see for any fan of the drug culture. And most fans of that 70's show will probably like this movie.
Go watch this movie and Up in Smoke now!!. You can skip other Cheech and Chong titles
