CHEECH AND CHONG'S NEXT MOVIE (1980)
Cheech & Chong's follow-up to their movie debut UP IN SMOKE. It's not like any of these movies were great works of art but they were funny and I find that this one works just as well as the first for me. Cheech plays his cousin Red for half the movie and him and Chong get into most of the wacky hijinks. Features a take off on CLOSE ENCOUNTERS with some outer spacedust, the Mexican-Americans song, tons of weed smoking of course, Pee Wee Herman, a red Hulk character named Wamba played by that BODY BY JAKE guy, the guy from POLICE ACADEMY who makes the sound effects with his mouth, Edie McClurg as a pot-smoking grandma,and even Elvira without her makeup in a tiny part. Definitely worth checking out ya hippie.
