4.0 out of 5 stars A stand-up special, not "Up In Smoke 2"
There are a lot of strong feelings about this movie. Many people hate it, many people love it. To be frank, it's pure Cheech & Chong, the stuff that made them famous on their 1970's comedy albums. It has no plot, like the classic "Up in Smoke" or their later bombs, it is really just a long sketch show. If you like Cheech and Chong's humor, it's on...

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheech & Chong's Worst Movie
Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong exhaust their audience goodwill with this glorified home movie shot in fun-filled Amsterdam. Barely released in 1983, "Still Smokin" represents the absolute nadir of the team's film career. The so-called "plot" fits on the back of a match box, with no laughs or production values in sight. Allegedly directed by Chong, who lets the camera run...

4.0 out of 5 stars A stand-up special, not "Up In Smoke 2", January 4, 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Still Smokin [VHS] (VHS Tape)
There are a lot of strong feelings about this movie. Many people hate it, many people love it. To be frank, it's pure Cheech & Chong, the stuff that made them famous on their 1970's comedy albums. It has no plot, like the classic "Up in Smoke" or their later bombs, it is really just a long sketch show. If you like Cheech and Chong's humor, it's on display at it's best here. Of course, most people who see this expect a sequel to "Up In Smoke", where it disapoints. It's not a pot-adventure comedy, although the drug theme runs strong. If you liked their classic comedy albums, you'll probably enjoy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Addition for collectors of Cheech & Chong, September 26, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Still Smokin [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I would akin this movie to "Up In Smoke" and "Next Move". I loved these two movies, and found "Still Smoking" just as hilarious. I have to admit that the last 1/4 of the movie slowed down when they were onstage in the comedy club, but I laughed quite frequently through the rest of this funny move. My Advice is to buy this movie, or at least rent it for a great laugh.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheech & Chong's Worst Movie, November 17, 2010
This review is from: Cheech and Chong's Still Smokin' (DVD)
Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong exhaust their audience goodwill with this glorified home movie shot in fun-filled Amsterdam. Barely released in 1983, "Still Smokin" represents the absolute nadir of the team's film career. The so-called "plot" fits on the back of a match box, with no laughs or production values in sight. Allegedly directed by Chong, who lets the camera run for endless stretches of boredom. Someone should have smoked the negative.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Near Miss, though it has it's moments, May 15, 2001

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Cheech and Chong's Still Smokin' (DVD)
This film by the doped duo is one of they're couple of misfires. Not as big as The Corsican Brothers (which is bad, though not the worst that could happen), though a somewhat far cry from the days of Nice Dreams and Up in Smoke.
The film focuses on the two and they're ventures before and at a festival in Amsterdam. However, it is mainly a set-up for a movie where they show off they're talent that made them a success on stage before the movies. Fascinating, to be sure, however the downtrip of this is that a number of the bits off and on stage in the movie just aren't that funny. The two show they have genuine and remarkable talent, but the mark isn't totally hit like in the earlier 4 movies. Best sequences though- Blind Melon Chitlin, the boobs in the sauna (why not), and the Detroit/Jamaican drug seller.
Not a total waste of time, but it isn't gold either.

2.0 out of 5 stars Only a few more laughs, January 16, 2005
This review is from: Cheech and Chong's Still Smokin' (DVD)
By the time I came to this movie, I had already gotten there first three. Up in Smoke was fantastic, Next Movie was great, Nice Dreams was good, this was was pretty poor. They get pretty desparate at some points here, and they constantly repeat chracters we've seen already.

The Low points are when they attempt to impersonate two homosexuals (badly), the astronaut which is Cheech miming for 3 minutes of in space, and then pretentds to jerk off at the end. Also, when they got to "Harry Palms" masterbating Champion, that was about as low and unfunny as you could get, just awful. All the points in the stand-up go on about a minute too long, including the fake nightclub. The people laughing at Cheech doing a redneck, had to have been payed actors.

There are some good points... not that many though. Maybe the wrestling scene, and some of the scene with Chong recording with a videocamera in the hotel room. They don't seem to do much in this. I wanted something different, which is what I got, but I didn't think it would be this horrible. These guys can do better.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Funniest Movies Ever, May 2, 2004
This review is from: Cheech and Chong's Still Smokin' (DVD)
(...)This film is not as cohesive between scene to scene as their other films, but there are much more laughs yielded per scene without expectations. Some of the brilliant scenes that reviewers have neglected to mention: the wrestling scene where Cheech and Chong fight an imaginary wrestler shows their brilliant ability for physical comedy, Tommy Chong's great impersonation of an old blues man (couldn't understand what he was saying for awhile), their impersonation of two gay performers bickering before their show, and many more. Throughout all the scenes, they travel through many facets of comedy and even drama. (...)I highly recommend this film to open-minded comedy fans not looking for a traditional narrative comedy.

3.0 out of 5 stars Still Smokin After 20 years., May 5, 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Cheech and Chong's Still Smokin' (DVD)
This was a good performance by Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong. This takes place in Amsterdam,Holland. Cheech and Chong try to make money dealing hash legally in Holland but the job turns backwards on them.There are some suggestive scenes like when they police fly over a beach and see some dutch women who take their bikinis off. Good movie of you are over at least 16.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cheech & Chong go to Amsterdam in search of hash., March 9, 2003
This review is from: Still Smokin [VHS] (VHS Tape)
Cheech is mistaken for Burt Reynolds. The city was expecting Burt Reynolds and Dolly Parton for a public appearance (fictionally) for the film "Best Little Whorehouse in Texas" (1982). But the town will have to settle for Cheech & Chong instead. They get first-class treatment anyway and decide to hold a concert to help the troubled P.R. man. They have lots of fun in Amsterdam. Cheech & Chong also appeared in the film YELLOWBEARD (1983). The next Cheech & Chong film is CHEECH & CHONG'S THE CORSICAN BROTHERS.
