Very high on the "10 worst films ever" list, Cheech and Chong's Next Movie was transferred to DiscoVision
with the usual contrast problems. The video is often too dark which makes the dark scenes nearly unwatchable.
However, the brightness is under control it seems. The audio transfer is actually pretty good, but is a bit
on the flat side.
Mastered fairly early in DiscoVision's CLV project, the title contains the normal orange spiral bumpers at the
side breaks. All copies reviewed have minor speckling for the duration of the program.
Cheech and Chong's Next Movie was re-issued on LaserDisc in 1984 by MCA Home Video (Catalog #: 16021). This
new version replaced the DiscoVision edition and is still in the active MCA/Universal Home Video Catalog. Based on
its age however, availability is highly doubtful. This 1984 version also has some music which has been changed as
proclaimed on the back cover. The video transfer on the newer version corrects many of the contrast problems from
the DiscoVision transfer.
