High grade stuff
8 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

I found Cheech and Chong's "Nice Dreams" a well crafted piece work. Not only are Cheech and Chong's performances very strong, they are also backed by a strong supporting cast, including Paul Rubens and Stacy Keech. Not as good as some of their earlier work but still high grade stuff, in my opinion.
