What we got here, is simply a bland holiday gig for the clownish, two stoners; Cheech and Chong to get up to trouble in Amsterdam and actually play themselves in some dreamed-up episodes that they could perform in their stand-up live show at the end of the film.

Towards the middle of this movie you realize its going nowhere quick.

Some of them, such as the interview with an adoring Dutch film critic society, smack of self-indulgence.

Don't waste your time.

What it lacks in plot it makes up for with the hilarious sketches at the end(best part of the movie, no matter what anyone says).

Among the awful cast, the transitions to and from dream sequences were so confusing that I wasn't sure which part was the actual film and which part was the dream sequence.

"Still Smokin'" is a slow starter.

So simple, the filmmakers had to add seemingly pointless skits and 20 minutes of Cheech and Chong concert footage to pad it out.

A few funny moments, but basically no story.

When our heroes get bored of living the good life at the hotel (a debauchery combination of ganja, room service and "room service"), they hit the town.

There is not much of a storyline, and the humor is awful and the movie totally boring.

Each imaginary sketch is as boring as unfunny as ridiculous, very few laughs with the real show and I was extremely glad when Cheech and Chong received the applause of the audience at the very end of the film.

Too bad I found it mostly boring and the support performances just make you cringe.

Chong literally comes onto the stage wearing some kind of brown paint over his face, and, tapping out a beat with his foot, blows into his empty hands.

Oh man, how awkward and self-indulgent can this get.

A total waste of time and money.

Slow start - excellent ending .

Unfortunately, the rest of the film is based around such idiocies as a wrestling match with invisible opponents that goes on way too long, or a stage performance in which the stoner duo impersonate dogs.
