Cheech's The Perfect Game Gets Less Than Perfect Reviews

The film, The Perfect Game, was released this week to mediocre reviews.  Cheech is a priest, again.  Seems that film studios only hire Cheech Marin to play a priest or a chihuahua.

They re-shot this film twice.  The cast kept changing.  The film studio kept postponing the release date because they didn't want to lose money and rightly so.

Here are a couple sample reviews:

Time Out New York says "the Christian sermonizing leans heavily on vague, theologically dubious suggestions of divine baseball providence" and "The Perfect Game courts its target demos like a leg-humping hound, but sports fans, believers, Latinos and even young wanna-be Willie Mayses can find fellowship elsewhere."

Cinesnob says "It would take a heck of a lot more to make “The Perfect Game” as interesting as the black and white photos of the real-life players it displays during the closing credits. That’s the story everyone should really be rooting for" and Sadly, “Game” plays like a lightweight athlete despite its big, misplaced heart."

If you really want to see this, I'd wait for the DVD.

"Cheech & Chong's Hey Watch This" Hits Theatres, Blu-Ray, VOD, and Online on the Same Day

Cheech & Chong's Hey Watch This Live
New York, NY, April 15, 2010 --( "Cheech & Chong's Hey Watch This" marks a media first: The maiden voyage of a trendsetting new release/distribution model; making the film available simultaneously on every platform including nationwide movie theaters, DVD/Blu-Ray, online, local retail outlets, VOD and PS3 / Xbox360 streaming networks. All fittingly released on April 20th (4/20).

The movie showcases comedy legends Cheech Marin and Tommy Chong during their highly successful reunion tour: Cheech & Chong Light Up America. This no holds barred film captures the essence of their return featuring the blowout San Antonio concert complete with back stage antics and brand new material. It’s the greatest hits of everything fans love about Cheech & Chong.

It’s not just another concert movie. "Hey Watch This," a visionary stand-up film helmed by comedy and documentary director Christian Charles (Jerry Seinfeld’s "Comedian"), was painstakingly constructed with the pot-loving, laid back fans in mind.

“The Muppet Show inspired my approach, but even the Muppets can’t create characters as out there as Cheech and Chong,” said Charles. “This release is the perfect combination of subversion and appeal, no duo rides that line better.”

The tour saw the legendary pair together for the first time in over 25 years, selling out more than 100 shows to become one of the most successful comedy acts of 2008-2009.

The film is produced by mouseROAR and Anonymous Content for The Weinstein Company.

mouseROAR llc is a boutique "soup to nuts" content provider specializing in unique entertainment for internet, television, film and mobile devices. "We're also ready for when they come up with a system that projects stuff right into your head."

Sen Dog of Cypress Hill Talks Working with Cheech & Chong

Cheech & Chong and other celebs make appearances on Cypress Hill's latest album, Rise Up.  Sen Dog tells the UK's Daily Record about working with Cheech & Chong.

"They're such a big part of why there is a Cypress Hill. I used to think I was Cheech when I was 14. I used to dress like him and everything.

Even knowing them is a trip, so actually working with them is overwhelming. They are becoming more normal as time goes by, but doing anything with those guys is an honour.

Those guys are always cracking jokes. They are really funny to hang around with. I think they get enjoyment out of watching people laugh. They were constantly cracking jokes and people were laughing which was good for the environment."

The album is in stores now.

D&E Entertainment Theatrically Distribute and Market Cheech & Chong’s ‘Hey Watch This’

The best buds of comedy are back and funnier than ever! In their triumphant return 25 years in the making, Cheech & Chong embark on an all-new trip that will leave you rolling with laughter. “Cheech and Chong’s Hey Watch This” is a feature film showcasing the guys’ hugely successful reunion tour, Cheech & Chong: Light Up America, where they performed together for the first time in over 25 years.

The pop culture duo performed for more than 100 audiences, grossing eight figures, making them one of the most sought after shows of 2008-2009. The film will be presented in select digital theatres on Friday 4/16, Saturday 4/17, and Tuesday 4/20.

Twenty-five years later, and after releasing classic films like "Up in Smoke," Cheech and Chong, the legends, are back on-stage once again.

“We had an amazing time last year reconnecting with each other and our fans in a way that felt like it was part of our DNA, we were meant to be together,” said Cheech Marin. “In 2010 we are looking forward to doing more classic material that people haven’t seen for years and years, performing more of our songs and introducing some new bits. We’ve had material brewing separately for the past 25 years,” said Tommy Chong. Successful beyond their wildest dreams, Richard “Cheech” Marin and Tommy Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-culture, no-holds-barred comedy routines. Together, they represent a lifestyle and are the originators of the “stoner film” as a genre.  Their phenomenal success included nine hit comedy albums and eight hit films, breaking box office records, shattering comedy album sales, garnering multiple Grammy nominations and mesmerizing fans for more than a decade.

“Cheech & Chong’s Hey Watch This” is theatrically distributed and marketed by D&E Entertainment ( in conjunction with The Weinstein Company and Vivendi Entertainment and will premiere for a special run in digital cinemas in cities throughout North America.  Participating theatres include: ArcLight, UltraStar, Clearview, Wehrenberg, Muvico, Goodrich, Bow Tie, Celebration, Emagine, Trademark, Rave, Cinema West, Studio Movie Grill, Cleveland Cinemas, Rialto Cinemas, Monaco Pictures, Patriot Cinemas, Allen Theatres, Phoenix Cinemas, Central Cinema, Brattle, Senator Theatre, Michigan Theatre, Lark Theatre, Merrill Theatre, The Palace Theater, Regent Theatre, Red-Vic Theatre, Showplace East Cinemas, Tower Theatre, and Duke University Union.. The DVD, Blu-ray and available VOD all hit the street on 4/20 as part of a cohesive multi-platform marketing plan and celebration.

“It’s an honor to be working with Cheech & Chong and selected by The Weinstein Company as their marketing and distribution partner. Now fans who have not had a chance to see Cheech & Chong’s great live show can do so at their local theatre with the best seat in the house.  At D&E, we’re able to bring unique entertainment opportunities to our fantastic theatre partners, provide content creators with a quality theatrical campaign all while servicing consumers who are looking for more than the typical film fare at their local cinema.” stated Evan Saxon and Doug Kluthe of D&E Entertainment.

The film has a running time of 90 minutes.
