Probably the best Cheech & Chong movie -- the boys show some variety, someone besides Chong directed it, and there's strangely almost no drug humor.

Audience Reviews for Things Are Tough All Over

Super Reviewer

cheech and chong are return to the film as the fourth "cheech & chong" movie but tommy chong did not direct this time but i notice that tommy chong did direct an few of "cheech & chong" movie and those of the best one as this film. cheech & chong play an dual-role as themself and the habib (one with tommy chong role) and mr. slyman (one with cheech marin role) the arabs brothers. arabs's brother is the best character and those are made me so laugh (but i cant help it anyway) in each scene. the poster ad (also with VHS & DVD cover) with the "things are tough all over" lookin awesome with the cheech & chong include with 2 french women (who starring this) in it. i see one with dave coulier who play joey gladstone in tv show "full house" also starring this movie and he seen gay who stare at tommy chong but he seen weird lol. one one with cheech & chong into the porn movie with the french women in it showed in theater that habib and mr. slyman little bit of funniest they saw it. i cant help it those are funniest with an cheech & chong play dual-role starring again.

Cheech and Chong play themselves, and two Arabs, in this surprsingly nutty comedy about a pair of idiots and a pair of asassins trying to get found in the deserts of Nevada and California. Actually just viewed again on cable. It's pretty funny because of offensive stereotypes of Mexican Americans and Arabs, This movie could not be made today.
