Cheech and Chong are hired to drive a limo from Chicago to Las Vegas by two shady Arabs - Mr. Slyman (Cheech) and Prince Habib (Chong). Unbeknownst to them, five million dollars of dirty money has been stuffed throughout the car.
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.

According to the book "Yellowbeard: Highjinks on the high seas", Sting wanted to play the lead role of Dan, but Hollywood executives thought the movie was becoming too English and mandated an American actor be cast and in the end this was Martin Hewitt who said, "Sting should have had my part. For crying out loud, I would have hired Sting over me any day." See more »

You may not agree with me, but I absolutely loved this movie. How often can you see this many stars in a movie involving royalty being raped? When you put together Monty Python members (who are excellent), many American comedians, pansies with maps on their scalps, a dirty prisoner who likes jail better than his ex, David Bowie as a human torture shark (with a 10 second cameo), Cheech and Chong, the father from Everybody Loves Raymond (and countless other CBS comedies), and many other amazing roles. I'm very sad to see that the only place you can get a hold of this tape except for waiting for 5 years for a request at Blockbuster (Yes, I requested it in 1995 and didn't receive the tape until 2002) or off of Amazon/E-Bay used (for no less than $35). Bascially, you can't beat Monty Python meets Cheech and Chong comedy.
