YMMV / Up in Smoke

The Cheech & Chong film:

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: War's "Low Rider" playing over the opening credits (as Pedro preps his "Love Machine" before he drives off in it).
  • Misaimed Fandom: An unfortunate take-away from this film was future stoner comedians finding joy in performing comedy or acting in doofy comedies while completely baked (Seth Rogen is notorious for this). This is despite the fact that Cheech Marin made it perfectly clear that it would be extremely unprofessional to be stoned while working on a movie.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Famously shot down by Cheech Marin. To paraphrase, "We were too busy making a movie to get stoned!"

The fanfic:

  • Crowning Music of Awesome: "Earache My Eye."
  • Tear Jerker: Lamont's death.
    • A Fridge Tear Jerker occurs, too. At one point, Hanna calls Worth and Conrad, telling them to go to Salem. He then tells them that if they should run into Veser or Toni, to pick them up. Neither Toni, nor Veser, nor even Ples appears once in the story, which means that it's quite likely that they're dead.
      • Partially averted, as it turns out that Toni, at least, is alive and working with some werewolves, and Ples shows up holed up in a clock tower with The Wild Hunt on his heels later in the series. And then of course they have to deal with that mess.
