I just love this little comedy gem Nan. It is silly and could even be considered jevenile humor for men who haven't grown up yet; but there is so much charm to be had. It is also consistent with it's flow and humor. The other C&C movies were a little strange and uneven in parts, like they were just a series of skits for the most part. UP IN SMOKE pushes all the right buttons as a comedy for me and is hilarious. It's like it's heart was in the right place.
I would even say that THINGS ARE TOUGH ALL OVER-82', is more consistently funny than the other 3 C&C stoner outings that were directed by Tommy Chong and that one gets forgotten or neglected. I even think THE CORSICAN BROTHERS-84', directed by Tommy Chong is funnier than Next Movie, Nice Dreams and Still Smokin. I also love YELLOWBEARD-83', but that one has a great cast of classic comedians and Chong is hilarious in this as El Nebuloso. Cheech is just his sniveling little sidekick here.
