The comic team of Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong, better known as Cheech and Chong movies, has the exceptional distinction of remaining culturally relevant from the 1970s to the present. After all, what’s not to love about these two, with their endearing demeanor and stoner sensibilities? Their stand-up comedy routines and musical sketches in the 1970s dealt with Latino and stoner culture, political satire, dark and character comedy, and the ups and downs of daily life. They made their first movie together once their popularity on the comic circuit increased.
After its 1978 premiere, Up In Smoke soon gained a cult following and box office success. Soon after, Cheech & Chong’s Next Movie, Nice Dreams, Things Are Tough All Over, and Still Smokin’ were released as sequels. The less well-known Corsican Brothers, which they released in 1984, was a departure from their usual stoner comedies. But Get Out of My Room, which they released in 1985, marked a comeback.
However, the pair would soon separate ways. They would go on to work independently on a number of other projects, including writing, performing, and creating what (according to the 2003 federal agents who raided Chong’s glass factory) may or may not have been pretty cool but unlawful drug paraphernalia. Would later they come back together in the 2000s and perform musical and sketch comedy across the nation. They have only so far released one film since their reunion, which was Cheech & Chong’s Animated Movie in 2013.
Now, here is every Cheech & Chong movie in chronological order. Whether you were raised in East Los Angeles or merely enjoy the pair from a smoke-filled room abroad.
