Nice Dreams Cheech and Chong house sit for a marijuana grower and rip off the crop. Stalked by keystone-style cops, Los Guys have a series of encounters with L.A. area characters even weirder than themselves.
Cheech and Chong’s third film: Nice Dreams.
Nice Dreams (1981) was the second sequel to UP IN SMOKE. The lovable burned out slackers are selling “ice cream”. But there nothing more than a front for there drug dealing (pot what else?). Sargent Stedanko is back from UP IN SMOKE. He’s no longer the same straight laced cop. Stedanko has turned into the very element he’s been trying to catch. The duo is stashing away some smoke for a rainy day. They want to pull off one big score so they could retire in the “tropics”. Unfortunately, Sargent Stedanko and his motley crew of narcs want to bust them and lock ’em up forever. Can Cheech and Chong “retire” in luxury? Will Stedanko finally bust them? What will happen to the duo when they stray away from their favorite drug and experiment with others? How does the good doctor Timothy Leary fit into the picture? Watch NICE DREAMS and you’ll find out!!

Hey, man, have some ice creams that give you nice dreams
