Cheech and Chong are hired to drive a limo from Chicago to Las Vegas by two shady Arabs - Mr. Slyman (Cheech) and Prince Habib (Chong). Unbeknownst to them, five million dollars of dirty money has been stuffed throughout the car.
Cheech and Chong fly to the marijuana capital of the world, Amsterdan, for a film festival where they take Dolly Parton and Burt Reynold's place in a limo, suite, press conference and performance. They throw in some sketches as well.

El Nebuloso (Tommy Chong) is referred to by a variety of titles through the movie, by El Segundo (Richard Anthony "Cheech" Marin) and Señor Verdugo ("Mr. Executioner" in Spanish - Kenneth Mars). First, El Segundo: "Mi Capitan," "Your Blessed Rectitude", and "Your Holy Ruthlessness." Then by Vergudo: "Your Barbarity," "Your Severity," "Your Vapidity," "Your Severity" (again), "Your Outrageousness," "Your Ferocity," "Your Blizzard of the Wrong," "Your Acute Horrendousness," and "Your Blind Stupidity." Then finally by El Segundo again, "Your Assholiness", "Your Vehemence,", "Your Barbarity," "Your Offensiveness," "Your Molestation," "Your Monstrosity," "O Berserk One," "O Mindless Slaughterer," and "Your Arrogance."

Toward the end of the credits there is a dedication to Marty Feldman (who died during the filming) that simply states "For Marty" See more »
A comedic romp featuring many of the old cast from Monty Python. in addition, Peter Cook of Beyond The Fringe fame. The film is not for the serious. A farce about a pirate and his treasure with his former first mate and the British Empire seeking to relieve him of it. Peter Cook steals the show with a fine portrayal of a clueless boozer who has a good heart and tries it really hard. I've been trying forever to find the film on DVD without success. Marty Feldman also has a fine role in the moviea and Cheech and Chong appear in secondary roles with humorous results. Graham Chapman stars as the title character with Eric Idle playing the Queen's representative from the Royal Navy.
