Cheech and Chong are back in such strong form here that it makes me wonder if I shouldn't reevaluate the previous film, Nice Dreams (1981), which seemed like a misstep to me on my last viewing.

Of course, there are some major differences with Things are Tough All Over. For Nice Dreams, Cheech and Chong took the ultimate stoner/slacker route and made a film with little plot or direction. It seemed like they were engaging in the same behavior offscreen as on and just and playing around with loose, rough ideas. Maybe they also wondered what the heck they had done when later watching Nice Dreams (or watching the box office returns), because for Things are Tough All Over, they took an entirely different path and crafted an intricately structured comic misadventure where they play two interweaving sets of characters--Cheech and Chong, of course, and Mr. Slyman (Cheech) and Prince Habib (Chong), Arab brothers who serve as Cheech and Chong's employers in various guises.

The script for Things are Tough All Over may have been something Cheech and Chong were working on for awhile. The basic subtext (as reflected in the title) is the recession during the Carter years in the U.S. Slyman and Habib represent the flipside of the gas crisis (which is both metaphorically and literally in the plot at the same time in interesting and funny ways, even including flatulence jokes), and their prosperity as well as Cheech and Chong's role in the climax and denouement of the film represent the change of economic and social climate of the Reagan years. This may be reading a bit too heavily into the film, but to some extent, these themes were definitely intentional.

Not that this is a serious film. The gags here are on par with Up in Smoke (1978).

Wow, who would guess that this burnout comedy team could come up with this extremely funny movie. Both have duel roles awesome! Just goes to show you that you can look everywhere else for something you want, and miss great opportunities in your quest, just to find out you had it all along.

Terrible movie, but still some funny junk! I bought this movie solely for the dryer scene which is not the same as I remember. It was still pretty funny though. Thanks Cheech and Chong for your crazy comedy.

One of the best movies ever. It is the 3rd best Cheech and Chong movie (1 Up in Smoke, 2 Next Movie). I laughed through most of it. It doesn't have much weed but it is very funny. I think everyone should buy it. i've never met anyone who didn't love this movie. cheech and chong both play 2 roles, and they do it very well.

I did not buy this movie necessarily for Cheech & Chong, themselves. I bought for the restaurant scene with a very young, curly headed Dave Coulier* (spelled Couwlier in credits) as man with tongue.

*Dave Coulier is best known for playing Joey Glastone as T.V.s "Full House".

Haven't seen this for a while. Watched a more recent "weed" movie where the guys are looking for a certain hamburger joint. That is a great movie too, but it still can't beat Cheech and Chong.

The Cheech and Chong movies are "Stoner Comedies". Many of the jokes are about drugs, and the movies are supposed to be watched while high. I really liked the first three movies even though I don't smoke. While watching this one, I desperately *wished* I was high.

Speaking of which, C&C didn't really *smoke* in the movie. Weird, man....

This is the fourth in the series!!! So glad to have it on DVD!!! This was truly the last great film they(Cheech and Chong) made together,Still Smokin was ok but Corsican Brothers was not good at all!!! The DVD has BOTH Widescreen and Full Frame versions so everyone will be happy,and the transfer for the film is nice and clean,sound is pretty darn good too,for a mono soundtrack!!! Recommended for Cheech and Chong fans!!! A+
