Cheech and Chong play dual roles as wealthy Arabs and as the two buffoons the Arabs hire to drive a limousine stuffed with a secret cache of money. The chauffeurs don't know about the money, of course, and end up losing it along the road between Chicago and Las Vegas. The thin plot is

nothing more than a hook to hang smutty humor on. The jokes tossed into this feeble effort involve Cheech and Chong in drag, herpes, and an S&M porno adventure featuring the comedians' real-life spouses Shelby Fiddis and Rikki Marin. Thomas Avildsen, who worked as an editor for the comedy duo's

earlier films, takes over the director's chair from Chong but proves unsuccessful in wresting comedy from this material. Apart from a peyote button popped by Chong, the film is free of hallucinogens, a first for the normally druggy duo, who at least had the excuse of being stoned in their previous

cinematic ventures.
