“Cheech and Chong’s first movie is the epitome of the serious doper’s heaven and hell. Heaven: they drive around in a van made entirely from 100% ‘Fibreweed’. Hell: they don’t know it. Heaven: they find a whole plateful of coke in the aftermath of a party. Hell: they also find a lady with a nose like the Blackwall tunnel and sniffing power equal to any Jet-vac. Covering the gamut of a laid-back, laid-out LA dope bum’s world – dumb cops, ‘Nam, being busted, the eternal search for a ‘lid’… [with] the spaced-out repartee that made Cheech and Chong so memorable.” – Time Out (London)
