Just about everyone in the cannabis community has heard of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong at some point. Whether it be from their hilarious movies with crazy stoner antics, their Grammy Award-winning albums, or just their constant activism in the community as a whole. But, until recently, I had no idea they made an animated movie!
Cheech and Chong put together a compilation of short skits based on some of their album lyrics and titles. The longtime smoking buddies do all the voices for each of the characters throughout the movie. With an assembly of colorful characters and hilarious stereotypical humor, these skits will keep you laughing.
At the beginning of the movie, we meet Buster the body crab. He is doing a talk show when he suddenly gets a smell of Chong’s “cologne.” After being captivated by the smell of the weed, he lands on Chong trying to get a smoke. Throughout the movie, Buster is constantly having issues getting a hit. Crazy, right?! He follows them through skits like, “Let’s Make a Dope Deal,” “Dave’s Not Here,” and an “ad” for Acapulco Gold. They even have a segment where they play dogs! With crazy hippies, nuns, pimps, cops and grandmas, this movie will have you laughing from the start.
After watching this movie, I also went back and checked into some of the other special features. Of course there is commentary by Cheech and Chong, as well as some of the directors and producers such as Paris Chong, Lou Adler and the Chamber brothers. As per the usual with DVD commentary, it is funny from time to time, but does seem to interfere with the movie a bit. Not a problem, seeing as you can watch the movie, then go back and check out the commentary and laugh all over again.
They also include a 4.20 listening mode, which is 4+ hours of commentary all at once. There is even a crazy Cheech and Chong slideshow with some hilarious real life, animated pictures of the duo. The last extra they included is a real life skit between the friends that you will just have to check out for yourself!
Needless to say, I definitely enjoyed this and would suggest this to anyone who enjoys Cheech and Chong, who are known as “the masters of the smokin’ word.”
