“There is something irrepressibly good-natured about the peppery Cheech and the zonked-out Chong as they low-ride through East Los Angeles and Tijuana in pursuit of the eternal high.“ —David Ansen, Newsweek
“It is imminently likeable and repeatedly watchable.” —James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
Celebrate the 45th Anniversary of Cheech and Chong's film debut, the granddaddy of all cannabis comedies. This zonked-out masterpiece brought the hilarious sketches that helped Cheech and Chong sell over 10 million records ("Dave's not here, man!") to the big screen in a big way. Directed by famed record producer Lou Adler, who discovered Cheech and Chong and went on to produce their blockbuster comedy albums, Up in Smoke's irresistibly goofy humor and madcap plot—made of 100% pure hemp—will lift your spirt (and pretty much the rest of you) as high as a kite.
