Cheech & Chong Animted Movie...

cc_upinsmoke_ms_5This is gonna sound like Stoner Blasphemy but between you and I find the comedic stylings of Cheech & Chong kind of overrated.  Hell, I dare say I find it kind of offensive. There isn't much to the shtick:  One stoner hippie and one oversexed racial stereotype on a quest to coast through life.  No matter the bit, no matter the film- that is the whole of Cheech and Chong's comedy.

Yes, they have their funny parts, to be sure.  And it would be a lie if I didn't admit to chuckling a few times at Up in Smoke or one time getting a little too stoned and answering knocks on my door "Hello... who???  Dave's not here..." So while cc-todayeveryone started losing their minds over the famed duo getting the band back together (so to speak) and have one more run at it, i knew it was nothing more than a cash grab... Two old comics running through tired old shtick.

But for the most part, I am alone with my less than possitive feelings on Cheech & Chong.  After two successful legs of their live stage show, breathing as much new life as two 60+ year old cheech-cartoonactors can spare, Cheech & Chong are calling it a comeback... and marking the occasion with an all new animated movie (which, again, is just a compellation of reimagined versions of the original "masterpieces"). Why not have a gander before we discuss...





Now my issue...

wayback clipWhat is with the world???  When did I pass out and get dragged into the way back machine with Mr. Peabody...

Cheech & Chong movie... The Who (in all their MaGoo-like glory) playing Half time at the super Bowl... it's like the 90s ended, Janet Jackson showed her tittie, and whammo!!!  1970' back again. Gas lines, shit economy... everything. 

But the ignoring of modern culture for the safety of nostalgic pursuits is a talk for another time.  We are talking about the rumored Cheech & Chong animated movie.  Quick review; 80 minutes or so of dick and fart jokes, smoking pot jokes, cheechchong1burned out hippie jokes, lazy Mexican stereotype jokes, and maybe a joke or two about being 90 years old and desperate to stay relevant.

In short, the movie looks like what it is;  a Cheech & Chong record played out for your burned out lil' brain to wrap itself around.  and as much as I hate myself for having to admit this; despite my feelings towards Cheech & Chong, I will end up baked off my ass checking this flick out with the rest of my burn out brethren because despite my efforts to rise above this stereotypical nonsense, every time I hear "Dave's not here" I laugh out loud.

I know... I’m a rube... I’m awful...
