Editorial Reviews

There's nothing straight about this movie. But here's the dope anyway: 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. Cheech and Chong's marijuana-laced humor keeps their spirits high and leads them to an outrageous finale in L.A.'s Roxy Theatre, where Cheech performs in a pink tutu and Chong dresses as a large red quaalude. It will make you feel very funny.

4.0 out of 5 stars Up in Smoke: the buzz on extras September 2, 2007
Amazon too zoned to type in extras these days, I guess.

* Commentary by Cheech Martin and director Lou Adler
* Roach clips (deleted scenes)
* Lighting Up: A look back
* Animated music video with Alice Bowie
* "The Man Song"
* 2 vintage radio spots
* Theatrical trailer

Enchanced for 16x9 with Dolby 5.1

The old DVD of "Up in Smoke" was what you'd expect -- the movie duly presented plus a commentary with Cheech Marin and Adler, plus a handful of deleted scenes.

This time, Paramount fills the DVD bong with a terrific new animated music video for the movie's "Alice Bowie" song; a new featurette with producer Lou Adler and Cheech & Chong (separately) talking about the movie; a high-speed montage of every instance someone says "man" in the movie; and some newly animated 1970s radio promos -- all of presented in the high spirits of the film.

The old commentary (ported over) and new featurette tell some great tales about the movie and the people who worked on it, such as Stacey Keach, Tom Skerritt, Harry Dean Stanton, Edie Adams and one-man test audience Jack Nicholson.

The widescreen DVD images look great, especially upconverted, with lots of bright, saturated primary colors that come across as reasonably natural. The music benefits from some tasty stereo separation and the dialogue is clear -- even when the boys are good and zonked.

pleasant dreams ...

Out of all the Cheech & Chong collaborations, their first film, 1978's Up In Smoke still stands as the best. A comedy classic that just can't be duplicated, not even by themselves. The plot (can you guess?) concerns two dudes, Pedro (Cheech) & Man (Chong) and their search for the best weed, rock music, and good times, man. Of course this journey comes with a price, evading a group of "undercover" cops led by the obsessed Sgt. Stedenko (Stacy Keach). If you like cars, you'll no doubt enjoy Pedro's Love Machine, which he decorated himself, and the van made completely out of pot! Watch out for that smoke. A few of the funniest scenes come from this van: 1. When the cop pulls them over and forgets why! and 2. When Stedenko and crew stand next to the smoking van and feel the influence, then order some pizzas! If you like to rock, then you've got that too. To quote the concert announcer - "...I don't know who they are, but here's ALICE BOWIE." Being a drummer myself, I'm more than a little jealous of Chong's gigantic drumsticks! However, I'm not jealous of Cheech's tu-tu! The characters Cheech & Chong created began to wear out in later films, but don't count this one out. Up In Smoke is when it was new and fresh and somehow it still "smokes" to this day.
Some comments on the DVD: One reviewer stated that the DVD doesn't have any features, but that's just not true. I just bought the 2000 Paramount DVD release and it has the following:
*Widescreen Version for 16:9 TVs
*Feature Length Commentary with Cheech Marin & Director Lou Adler
*8 Deleted Scenes (including Harry Dean Stanton as a security guard) with optional commentary by Cheech & Lou Adler
*Original Theatrical Trailer
*Dolby Digital: English 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get this DVD at all costs November 25, 2000
I just recieved this DVD from Amazon yesterday the 24th of November. What Amazon did not mention on this page is that this DVD comes with deleted footage that is even more funnier than the movie. You have 8 deleted scenes of pure comedy that nobody has ever seen untill this DVD came out. Also i strongly suggest to listen to the movie with the audio commentary on to hear Cheech Marin describe what was going on during production of one of the greatest comedies of all time

4.0 out of 5 stars IT IS CHEECH & CHONG !!!! February 8, 2008
For those days you feel like suspending reality and getting many a laugh (if you allow yourself to laugh) this is great. I am a long time fan (since LP record days) and C & C never fail to make me relax. Matter of fact my 32 year old son and I both get a kick out of sitting down once in a while and laughing at their antics and jokes. They have bridged the generation gap. A 1960's hippie and her son can both see humor in them. THANKS C & C.

5.0 out of 5 stars The first (and best) of many Cheech & Chong films! December 29, 2001
Released in 1978, "Up in Smoke" is the first of six films by the comedy duo known as 'Cheech and Chong.' Being their first effort, it also seems like their best as later films (with the exception of "Things Are Tough All Over") quickly became boring and the magic just seemed lost. The first movie in a series is always the best, and true it is here with "Up in Smoke." The movie introduces us to Pedro DePacas and Man Stoner (Cheech and Chong, respectively) who meet under very unusual circumstances in Los Angeles. Cheech, driving his "...Love Machine" (it's a 1964 Chevrolet Impala for all you car-buffs out there!) joins with Chong and they spend the better part of the movie searching for some marijuana. The movie is very funny and is host to some of the most memorable "Cheech and Chong" scenes ever. The movie ends at a Rock club where the boys play some really strange music. On a final note, "Up in Smoke" has a very nice appearance by Stacy Keach who plays Sgt. Stedenko.
If you are a fan of "Cheech and Chong," then add this to your collection. If you want to be a fan of "Cheech and Chong," then add this to your collection! Enjoy!
