Alternate Versions

As of December 2001, Comedy Central is showing a semi-restored version (edited for language, obviously) that includes all the drug use and original incidental music ("Tequila", and most notably, the awe-inspiring guitar solo by Steve Lukather). However, the statement by Peewee Herman to police is still missing: "I think they're Iranians!" See more »

Second film starring the Cheech and Chong duo.
17 August 2005 | by Captain_CouthSee all my reviews

Cheech & Chong's Next Movie (1980) was the second film to star to pot loving duo of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. The lovable burn out smokers are now roommates. They live in a condemned building looking for ways to score more smoke and just lay about all day. But Cheech is the "responsible" one. He has a job and a steady girlfriend. One day, Cheech wants to get his freak on so he tries to get Chong out of the house. Another problem arises as well, Cheech's brother "Red" (Cheech is another role) is in town and wants to hang with him. Firguring that he could kill two birds with one stone, Cheech pawns Chong off and Red. What kind of adventures will Chong and Red get into? Will Cheech get his freak on? How long will Chong go without some smoke? Just watch CHEECH & CHONG'S NEXT MOVIE to find out!!

Tommy Chong takes over the directorial reigns for the sequel. He received some experience when he did some uncredited work on UP IN SMOKE. Funny but not as good as the first film. But Cheech and Chong fans will enjoy it. Followed by NICE DREAMS.

Recommended.
