Pressing Notes

Very high on the "10 worst films ever" list, Cheech and Chong's Next Movie was transferred to DiscoVision with the usual contrast problems. The video is often too dark which makes the dark scenes nearly unwatchable. However, the brightness is under control it seems. The audio transfer is actually pretty good, but is a bit on the flat side.

Mastered fairly early in DiscoVision's CLV project, the title contains the normal orange spiral bumpers at the side breaks. All copies reviewed have minor speckling for the duration of the program.

Release History

Cheech and Chong's Next Movie was reissued on LaserDisc in 1984 by MCA Home Video (Catalog #: 16021). This new version replaced the DiscoVision edition and is still in the active MCA/Universal Home Video Catalog. Based on its age however, availability is highly doubtful. This 1984 version also has some music which has been changed as proclaimed on the back cover. The video transfer on the newer version corrects many of the contrast problems from the DiscoVision transfer.
