What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Cheech & Chong's Animated Movie is packed with drug humor, with exaggerated quantities of drugs consumed being the source of most of the jokes. Pot is the main drug, but cocaine, reds, acid, and wine are also mentioned. Sexual content is an issue, with various sexual images shown for shock and/or gross-out value. Language isn't constant, but contains several uses of "s--t." Violence is a minor issue, with some fighting and some fake ads that encourage suicide and gouging zits (some blood and other bodily fluids are shown). This is absolutely not for kids, though teens might be attracted to the outrageous humor and rebellious tone.
  • Families can talk about why drug humor is funny. Are drugs really that funny? What would really happen if someone took as many drugs as these characters do?
  • What was it about Cheech & Chong's prime, in the 1970s, that won them success? Was it just the drugs, or the shock humor that did it? What was going on at the time that made them relevant?
  • Are Cheech and Chong cultural stereotypes, or not? Why?
