Up in Smoke

Up in Smoke ★★★

"Yeah, well, he's cool. His only thing is, he's a little weird. You know, like, he went over to Vietnam, man, and he came back all weirded out, you know."

"Stoner" comedy duo Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong made their movie debut here. There isn't much of a story and the humour isn't exactly sophisticated but it still manages to raise plenty of laughs, one of the best of which involves a van constructed out of marijuana. Stacy Keach also gives us a game straight man turn as the film's main antagonist - a pursuing DEA agent named Stedenko.
