The 1981 stoner comedy Cheech and Chong's Nice Dreams is the third of Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin's movies together, a meanderingly silly but agreeable farce about two clods selling marijuana treats from the back of an ice cream truck. Oblivious to an investigation by a couple of idiot cops whose boss (Stacy Keach) is constantly high from smoking evidence, the boys stumble through one crazy vignette after another. A few of these scenes feel like satiric spins on bad experiences Cheech and Chong might have had in the recording business, such as an evening spent with an obnoxious band manager who mistakes Tommy for Jerry Garcia and steals the Chinese food right off his restaurant table. Other craziness includes a night of sexual bliss interrupted by the arrival of a party girl's "Mexican-hating" biker-boyfriend, and incarceration in a padded room, where Timothy Leary supplies psychedelics to the clueless anti-heroes. Paul Reubens, Sandra Bernhard, and Linnea Quigley turn up in supporting roles. --Tom Keogh
You know what we should in vest in? An old age home for hippies. Cause, think about it, hippies have been around since the 60's man, and now there isn't really a hip place for them to go anymore. So, you know, it would be a home where they could smoke all the dope they'd want and listen to all the music they want, you know.
Oh yeah, we could call in 'Laidback Manor'.
