Cheech
A pimp suffers the ultimate Bad Day in this independent comedy-drama, the first theatrical feature from Quebecois director Patrice Sauve. Ron Patrice Robitaille) runs a low-rent escort service in a dingy side of Montreal -- or at least he did until he was murdered in his office. Ron was hardly a popular guy, and there are a number of people who had reasons to want him dead, so the question soon becomes who actually had the nerve to do away with him? Was it Stephanie (Fanny Mallette), a call-girl who wants out of the business despite Ron's pleas to stay on for an upcoming convention?… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Cheech is ultimately done in by the derivative nature of its backward structure, too many people-screaming-in-rooms scenes and the almost entirely disengaging nature of its characters."
‑ Geoff Pevere, Toronto Star
"With its garish and seamy scenes, its flabby shots and not-snappy-enough dialogue, Cheech is often like a nasty old pair of leopard-print underwear, its elastic frayed and loose."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"Directing such a cavalcade, Patrice Sauvé seems less an assured auteur than an overtaxed traffic cop, waving this one ahead and holding that one back and ultimately, when the final pile-up looms, just tooting his whistle in shrill frustration."
‑ Rick Groen, Globe and Mail
"Not to everyone's tastes, this Quebec film is nasty, brutal and pulpish. But it has wry humour, too, and works by sucking you into its low-rent world."
‑ Bruce Kirkland, Jam! Movies
