Cheech&Chong Collection

2

Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong were stoner stand-ups who got lucky with 1978's Up In Smoke and spent the next ten years rehashing the 'hash-bar Laurel&Hardy' formula.

By the '80s, the joke had worn thinner than a Rizla trampoline and they were flogging out the cheapo exploitation flicks included in this ragged collection. There's Cheech&Chong's Next Movie (hammered in Hollywood), Things Are Tough All Over (vacant in Las Vegas), Born In East LA (Cheech's charmless first solo effort) and Get Out Of My Room (smug mock documentary).



Most enjoyable is Nice Dreams, which features the illustrious Stacy Keach as a fist-shaking cop out to collar the boys' ice-cream/dope-dealing business.
