I saw Niemand "Amsterdammit" asked if it is worth buying for the new extras. YES
The deleted scenes are great! They are called "Roach Clips". Runtime 11:22 If you liked June Fairchild as The Ajax Lady, you will LOVE this bonus! (this was her last movie!) I reread your question Niemand, and I don't see where you mentioned the older DVD having the deleted scenes.
Niemand also asked about the content of "Lighting It Up: A Look Back at Up In Smoke" Total runtime 11:00
The Meeting of Cheech & Chong 1:30
Arriving in LA 6:00 This contains commentary with Lou Adler and goes into detail about the "Daves not here" skit.
Filming "Up In Smoke" 1:30
The Actors of "Up In Smoke" 1:15
Lessons Learned 1:20
Incorporating The Punk Scene :28
The Cultural Impact of "Up In Smoke" :45
As I said at the beginning, they are worth it, especially for $5.48...I mean, common'!
I bought this for my little brother, who decided he wanted to watch a Cheech and Chong movie, but couldn't find one anywhere in town. I thought it would be a fun gag gift to surprise him with. When it arrived in the mail I gave it to him and he watched it right away, ever since he's been watching every Cheech and Chong movie he can find and tells me about how funny they all are. So I guess it was a really funny movie!
I'm a 51 year old man that still has a very Strict old school Dad. I played this movie for him in fathers day just because we had nothing better to do. He was very Skeptical at first and somewhat uninterested. .15mins into the movie he was laughing so hard he was crying! inmediately after the end of the movie he was still laughing and talking about some scenes. Two Puff Puff Pass Up in smoke!!
This movie is the quintessential stoner flick, the one that pretty much "started it all". If you partake of the herb or just have an outrageous sense of humor you'll really enjoy this classic. Granted, it's an older film, but withstands the test of (humor) time. If you at least understand the culture, you'll have great fun and loads of robust laughter while watching this movie. Enjoy!
