Trivia

The name of the movie being shot during the film-shoot was "Wamba's Revenge". Prince F****t, the D.O.P's name (under "Camera") on the clapper-board during the film-shoot, was a reference to cinematographer King Baggot. See more »

Goofs

When Chong and Red are walking around the hotel with Red's luggage (just before the police sirens get their attention), the camera tilts and pans to keep them on screen. As the camera moves, shadows of the camera and crew become visible at the bottom left corner of the screen. See more »

Quotes

Chong: You're driving like an idiot, man.
Cheech: I just can't get used to these automatics, man.
Chong: Yeah, they are real complicated, aren't they?

Alternate Versions

An edited TV version shown on the Comedy Central cable network removes most of the drug references. For example, instead of "bag of weed," "bag of diamonds," was used, which made for a strange ending. See more »

great party movie
13 December 2001 | by DissSee all my reviews

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
