10 acclaimed movies featuring L&O stars

Pretty stupid with some funny moments. Chong pulls his one trick pony routine and almost makes a decent movie..almost. The C. Thomas Howell plot works.

This is such a good movie! This makes me wish Chong had pursued more of a solo film career after Cheech & Chong split up.

I wanted to love this, but it's one of those films that looks like it was a lot more fun to make than it was to watch. C Thomas Howell has an early example of a "star making fun of themselves" role.

This film is just Tommy Chong doing his thing the way he wants to do it. I do think that he's better in combination with Cheech Marin but the man knew what he was doing. Chong uses episodes and performers from his real life to depict an American life he could really relate to, and presented it via an outrageous comedy. Sure it wasn't overly moving, but it did bear a message about times changing and the tragic decline of the hippie culture. The script was pretty funny, Chong being the most elaborate of all the characters of course. All-in-all a sweet stoner flick, but a funny watch for non-stoners too.

Imagine that, Tommy Chong playing a hippie. Will wonders never cease?

Far Out Man is the story of an aging hippie (the immortal Tommy Chong) whose still stuck in the 60's, high off his gord, and saddened over his ex-girlfriend (real life wife Shelby Chong) along with their son (real life son Paris Chong) who are now with C. Thomas Howell (playing himself) in basically a 99% autobiographically telling of Chong's life. With the help of his other daughter, Rae Dawn Chong, from another marriage, as well as Martin Mull, as a seedy therapist, Chong embarks on a journey of being a roadie again, with Paris accompanying him, neither knowing their true relations. For the most part, this movie if pretty unfunny, but it has its moments, thanks in part to a surprisingly good supporting cast that help Chong stagger about this entire film stoned off his ass. Most notable appearances from from the likes of 80's black comedian Reynaldo Rey (as Chong's seedy boss), Cheech Marin (in a surprise cameo as himself), Police Academy noise-maker Michael Winslow (as an airport cop), and Mull and Howell in their perspective roles. Judd Nelson also pops in as himself in a slightly comical battle between C. Thomas Howell, whom both were at about to make the big drop in popularity shortly after this film. Hmm, what else, Shelby Chong has a nice (but very brief) showing of her titties, as does B-movie actress Peggy McIntaggart. So, in conclusion, a couple of small laughs and some small titty shots does not help Tommy Chong capture any sort of glory he may have had when he was apart of Cheech & Chong. Don't feel too sad, he's definitely made a notable comeback lately.

It was alright. It had a few funny parts. The black guy was the best character in the movie. The Cheech cameo was nice.

Martin Mull couldn't hypnotize me into believing this was a good film. Tommy Chong becomes a roadie for the loudest band in the world - The Farts

Pretty much the same as any other cheech and chong film, though this one is really only chong. Which is good since he was the funnier of the two anyway. It is worth a watch if you like stoner flicks.
