Cheech & Chong are invited to a celebrity party/festival in Amsterdam. When they get there, however, it turns out that the guy who invited them has taken off with all the money, and the rest of the hosts have a VERY limited budget. They are actually expecting Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton, so our heroes gets to be Mr. Burt and Mr. Dolly. We follow them around Amsterdam, at their hotel, (still) smokin' joints and doing shows.

Did You Know?


The aliases that Cheech and Chong became were Mr. Burt and Mr. Dolly, as they are mistaken for Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton, who at the time had recently co-starred in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas (1982) and were meant to be attending (as the film's story goes) The First Amsterdam Film Festival.

During the segment "The Harder They Don't Come", Tommy Chong pulls the trigger of his pistol but it doesn't fire. He says "I must have hit an empty chamber." That would only make sense if he was holding a revolver that has multiple chambers, each holding a single cartridge. He was holding a semiautomatic pistol that automatically loads cartridges into a single chamber from a magazine in the grip. See more »


Cheech: You know what we need to do? A take off on a telethon. You know, like Jerry Lewis does? You know, raise money for kids? Yeah. I know, we call it: Dope-A-Thon. Yeah. We have guest hosts, you know. And we raise money for dopers that - lost there crops!

Cheech & Chong are obviously not everyones taste, but...
19 April 2002 | by geleficheSee all my reviews

Cheech & Chong are obviously not everyones taste, but I for one, think that they are two of a kind, that deserve more recognition from those in the, so called 'know'. This little gem is yet more proof, that these guys are as funny today as they where twenty years ago. Sex, drugs & hippy wierd stuff, at it's best.
