  • Summary: Lazy stoner Dale Denton has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver: to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. But when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city's most dangerous drug lord, he panics andLazy stoner Dale Denton has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver: to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. But when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city's most dangerous drug lord, he panics and dumps his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene. Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him. And it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they're not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia; incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both. All aboard the Pineapple Express. (Sony Pictures) Expand

    As loose and playful as major studio movies get.
  2. One of the most hilarious and engaging films from producer Judd Apatow's often inconsistent comedy factory, thanks to inspired dialogue, dynamite chemistry between Rogen and Franco and perfectly pitched stoner gags (undoubtedly the result of copious research).
  3. A film that is at once elegant and sublimely silly.

    Laugh for laugh, Pineapple Express is way funnier than "Superbad." It may be the funniest mainstream comedy released so far this year (not that that means much when you've got "The Love Guru" pulling down your average).

    Disappointingly, Pineapple Express is less than the sum of its ingredients, even if it's still a good stupid time at the movies.
  6. It's an unshowy, generous performance [by Franco] and it greatly humanizes a movie that, as it shifts genre gears and cranks up the noise, becomes disappointingly sober and self-serious.
  7. When "Pineapple" goes from ganja to genre, it sours.

    This movie was really funny. An all around good buddy action movie that both sober and stoners can enjoy.

    Just an all around, very physical, and insane movie. I am not a big fan of Seth Rogen, but I loved this movie!

    A decently comical movie...way better than Knocked Up and Katharine Heigl's stupid, expressionless acting.

The only memorable actor is the weed Dealer James Franco, who played an amazing part! Other than that the rest of the the characters were pretty weak along with the Plot of the movie. Expand

    This movie was awful. Seth Rogen can't carry a movie to save his life. He plays the same character in every movie (with the exception of This movie was awful. Seth Rogen can't carry a movie to save his life. He plays the same character in every movie (with the exception of The 40 Year-Old Virgin). I left work early this afternoon to see this with a buddy and I felt myself fighting off boredom & sleep as this train wreck rolled on...and on...and on. And just as a point of reference, I loved (and own) Knocked Up and Superbad. Not off the Apatow bandwagon just yet, but I'm teetering. Not sure I was ever on the Rogen bandwagon. He should be behind the camera, not in front of one. Expand
