Cheech & Chong's Wedding Album was the first serious misfire for California's best-known pair of stoners. After three albums of trailblazing comedy, Tommy Chong and Cheech Marin inexplicably broke away from the recurring themes and character sketches which had thus far kept fans in hysterics, just waiting to find out what would happen next. No, Wedding Album is a collection of overly simplistic, seemingly leftover bits ("Black Lassie," "The Baby Sitters," etc.) looking for something, anything more substantial to latch onto. But in the end the somewhat inspired "Coming Attractions," along with the album's mandatory musical number, the excellent "Earache My Eye," comprise the only truly essential numbers here.
