About Cheech

( wikipedia | imdb )
I haven't yet written a blurb about Cheech.

Cheech Marin is said to have been born on Saturday 13 July 1946, which would make him 74 years, 3 months and 13 days old (if this date is accurate and he is alive today).

Alright, this movie may not have made me laugh, but I sure did grin a lot. Two potheads meet on the side of a road, decide to start a band and constantly have to dodge the fuzz. That's basically the plot. Apparently this is something of a cult among stoner movies. For a cult movie, it's surprisingly watchable. The song Low Rider by War over the credits gets you in the mood. Someone else would have to tell you what the movie is like under the influence of weed. (Last viewed: June 2015)

When After Hours came out, it was marketed in a way that didn't appeal to me. But it's one of those movies that are worth waiting 35 years for. First, it doesn't show its age. Second, I'm sure I enjoyed it more than I would have in 1985, thanks in no small part to my pathological nostalgia for the 1980s, which were home to all of my teenage years.

This is a New York movie, and its plot is an exemplary sample of the "impossible chase" scenario. A young man goes downtown around midnight, and gets caught into a spiderweb of impossible situations from which his only desire is to escape and go home.

It's not very funny at first, and the movie certainly doesn't fit into the laugh-out-loud genre, but I found myself chuckling more and more as events get increasingly ridiculous and the main character keeps battling on, with bravado, to get to the end of that impossible night.

If you're younger I have no idea what you might think of it, but if you're at all open to watching a movie that predates the internet and the mobile phone, I'd suggest giving it a try. It was, after all, directed by Martin Scorcese, and I say that even though I've never been one of his unconditional fans.
