The U.S. Army actually allowed them to shoot in Fort Knox (?!) which continues to baffle the Reitmand and Goldberg to this day considering the subject matter of their movie. Reitman points out the bits in the movie that Bill Murray adlibbed on the spot while Goldberg talks about the film’s genesis, from its initial pitch of Cheech and Chong in the Army, to the movie we know and love. This is a solid track with loads of information and anecdotes that make it essential listening for fans.

A surprisingly decent track, both have good memories of the production and most interestingly, speak candidly about the inherent problems with the re-inserted extended cut footage. They also speak fondly regarding the cast who were mostly unknown at the time, especially John Candy. A good listen if you are a fan. 6/10
