Cheech & Chong's Hey Watch This

Directed by Christian Charles (Anonymous Content)

Full disclosure: this film was reviewed by a sober person. Still, it’d take an awfully big stash of awfully kind bud to make this half-assed effort from stoner icons Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong remotely watchable. The movie features footage from their recent reunion tour, which apparently was a live performance without a pulse. The duo recycle songs, punchlines and characters from their early-’80s heyday, like the butt-sniffing dog pals Ralph and Herbie and Cheech’s anthem, “Born In East LA,� without even trying to put a fresh spin on their stale drugs, dicks and dumps gags. The new stuff, most of which relies on the notion that Chong’s real-life jail sentence for selling bongs is inherently funny, is even worse. Eighty excruciating minutes.
