I've seen this movie a few times over the years and still enjoy watching about two buddies looking for dope and accidently get deported to Mexico and desperate to get back home agree to drive a van back to the States so they can get back in time for a gig , Unaware the van is made up of marijuana to be driven to Los Angeles with the police on their trail , picking up female hitch hikers stopping for a punk band competition with a great picture for the age and not bad sound just lacks a little bass for the sub woofer to kick in , Great Special Features , Interviews , deleted scenes , animated music video clip , Cheech & Chong's The Man Song , 2 Discs DVD & Blu Ray .
We already know this movie is a Classic! I have waited so long for it to come out on Blu Ray...it was worth the wait! The movie looks incredible on Blu but still keeps the "film" look to it. You can read so many signs and labels that were just complete blur on the DVD version. If you are a fan of Cheech and Chong, buy this Blu Ray! Its almost like experiencing the film for the first time, fabulous!
Absolute incredible transfer, not blown up no screen movement but what appears to be a remastering of the original source material because this looks perfect, sound track is so much better. Not sure whats taking still smokin so long for the blu ray treatment. Get this a.s.a.p. I'm sure it will be super expensive to track down after it goes out of print.
Forgot just how funny Cheech & Chong were back in the day. They created two very different dudes who play off each other and riff through a complete movie hysterically. Better than their albums because the sight of these two spewing their slightly moronic, yet boldly funny riffs on the hippie culture is delightful. Made me want to watch more of their flicks again.
Great video transfer of a classic hilarious stoner film. Director lou Adler (usually known for being a record producer) creates highly memorable sketch moments that are perfectly edited to maximize humor. We follow the befriending of two stoners...one Mexican the other half Chinese as they unknowingly drive a truck made out of marijuana and are in hilarious pursuit by the price. They make their msrk at s sunset strip battle of the bands. The use of music in this movie is genius the opening titles of low rider by war is still important and effective to this date. Watch this for some r rated drug use and colorful characters like strawberry the PTSD guy and the chick who reenacts a sex moment with the public listening and watching. Too much to mention. This film is the best of the c&c films and like I said, lou Adler never gets as much kudos as he should have.
