Alternate Versions

Some versions delete the scene with Chong and Donna while Cheech hangs from the balcony. The scene jumps from when Cheech first goes over the railing to when he is trying to manuever his way to the elevator. Missing is when he discovers that the man at the door is Chong, that the patio door is now locked and what Chong and Donna do with the ice. See more »

I thought this Cheech and Chong vehicle made for a nice movie.
26 June 2010 | by Aaron1375See all my reviews

I do not understand why this Cheech and Chong movie has a rather low score here at IMDb. I thought this was by far the funniest movie I have seen the duo in. Granted the only other two movies I have seen them is the mildly funny "Corsican Brothers" and the dreadful "Yellow Beard". Still, they were on fire here, I rather liked the plot that kind of went here and there with no real set destination. They are basically selling weed out of an ice cream truck, and their pot fields are disguised by a tarp that seen from above resembles a swimming pool (until said tarp gets a rip in it). The cops though are hot on their trail, well sort of when the captain is not sampling the pot himself (he has a bit of an adverse reaction to it). So Cheech and Chong get some money from some of their stash and end up having to go to a hotel where a jealous crazed boyfriend is headed their way and then they somehow manage getting locked up in a mental asylum. Well Cheech does, somehow Chong gets mistaken for a doctor. Then it wraps up rather nicely as things work out right indirectly for our heroes. Okay, hero is a stretch. The comedy here is top notch in my book, I love Paul Reuben's scenes as the guy who is so sorry he took the money. I also liked how this movie went by fast with a good assortment of crazy locales for Cheech and Chong to have their adventures. Like I said I thought this movie was hilarious, however my opinion does not seem to be held by most.
