Up In Smoke (1978)

Two boys (Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong) search for some marijuana to aid them in the formation of a pop group. In pursuit is a narcotics detective (Stacy Keach) and the trail leads them to LA.

Cheech and Chong make their film debut in this riotous rock’n’roll comedy, bringing with them the same madness, lifestyles and sketches that sold over 10 million records in the early ’70s.

The pair made a surprisingly successful transition to the big screen, making six movies together, all essential viewing for students around the world.

Stacy Keach has a ball as the deranged policeman on their trail while the car made of cannabis is a hoot. Cheech and Chong’s marijuana-laced humour keeps their spirits high and leads them to an outrageous finale at L.A.’s Roxy Theatre.

If you only watch one Cheech and Chong movie, make it this one.
