UP IN SMOKE (1978)

Two potheads on a never ending quest for good grass attempt to smuggle a van across the Mexican border, unaware that the vehicle is made entirely out of Cannabis! 

 

Cheech and Chong’s first film remains the Sgt. Peppers of stoner comedies.  Director Lou Adler and the boys stage some hilarious set pieces, incorporating skits from the duo’s record albums with uproarious new bits involving their favorite forbidden fruit. Stacy Keach and Strother Martin provide solid support in this comedy classic.  Portions of the film’s killer soundtrack were provided by a group of talented session musicians dubbed Yesca.

 

 

Zevk,
