Cheech and Chong's Up in Smoke ★★½ Up in Smoke 1979 (R)

A pair of free-spirited burn-outs team up for a tongue-in-cheek spoof of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. First and probably the best of the dopey duo's cinematic adventures. A boxoffice bonanza when released and still a cult favorite. 87m/C VHS, DVD . Richard “Cheech” Marin, Thomas Chong, Stacy Keach, Tom Skerritt, Edie Adams, Strother Martin, Cheryl “Rainbeaux” Smith; D: Lou Adler; W: Richard “Cheech” Marin, Thomas Chong; C: Gene Pol-ito.
