Up in Smoke (1978)
It's time for a fun movie and this week's selection is Up in Smoke.
Cheech and Chong look the same age now as they did in this movie. I guess what happens in video games is true - once you reach max level, you stop leveling. Cheech picks up Chong while he is hitchhiking and together they go on a whirlwind adventure to find some grass.
Ironically they obtain an entire van made of grass and they don't even realize it. They pick up some hot yet annoying chicks and join a battle of the bands. The cops are never far behind them but we know nothing bad is going to happen to Cheech and Chong. This movie is important as it basically started its own genre of films - the stoner comedy. Movies like The Big Lebowski wouldnt exist if it weren't for this film. But still the film could have been better. Therefore I am giving it a 6/10.
