A classic 'stoner' comedy, this is definitely one of my favourites.  So many funny moments and memorable lines from this movie. 


Cheech & Chong's Up In Smoke (1979)

Movie synopsis:

Flipping the finger to his rich, conservative parents and hitting the road, pothead drummer Anthony "Man" Stoner (Tommy Chong) is picked up by fellow weed enthusiast Pedro de Pacas (Cheech Marin) while hitchhiking. After they are mistakenly deported to Mexico — after Pedro's relatives call the INS on themselves in order to get a free ride to a wedding in Tijuana — the pair must make it back across the border in order to rock out at a Battle of the Bands in Los Angeles. Unbeknownst to them, however, the panel truck they're travelling in is constructed entirely of "fibreweed," sparking a cross-state pursuit by a police narcotics squad led by the super-square Sgt. Stedenko (Stacy Keach). Cheech and Chong's big-screen debut, based on material the duo had created over their decade as a popular stand-up team, is the gold standard of stoner-movie classics, packed with classic moments, from "Labrador" weed to baked nuns. A ruder, cruder, drug-culture complement to the outsider comedy of the same year's Animal HouseUp in Smoke helped make 1978 one of the most crucial years in the evolution of modern comedy.

    Great seeing the movie on the big screen. And they used an original film print (i.e. not a digital projection) to add to the authenticity of the viewing experience. Thanks Lisa and Jim for coming out for your first MAM meetup. Sorry I didn't stick around, had to wake up early for a camping trip the next morning.

    In case you didn't get the email, I updated the meet up time to be 9:15pm, but I'd like people to be there by 9:10pm (Meetup only lets me set quarter hour meetup times). And a reminder 5pm is the cut off for canceling out of this event. Thanks!
