Put this in your pipe and smoke it.
A stoner and his dealer are forced to go on the run from the police after the pothead witnesses a cop commit a murder.
Peaceful Stoner cried laughing watching Pineapple Express.
Is this what Comedy Heaven is like? If so, then praised be archangels Seth, James and Danny, for they are three madly hilarious winged dudes. Pineapple Express is one of the funniest, craziest and most entertaining comedies of recent times, and very few have come close to its amazingness since it descended from the skies. What makes it so amazing, besides an incredible cast stacked with comedy greats and a heavy emphasis placed on weed, is its seemingly hazardous and completely chaotic nature, which nicely ties into its stoner sensibilities. It’s a rare occasion when you get to praise a movie for being aimless and for having an excuse of a plot that seems to head in the direction of…
Seth Rogen and his co-writer Evan Goldberg come together once more and create a very enjoyable stoner comedy and leave it in the hands of David Gordon Green to direct it. If Pineapple Express works so well for some, it's obviously not because of the direction, it's because of the witty writing and the duo's peculiar humour that can bring people together but also tear them apart.
Seth Rogen stars as Dale Denton and plays his traditional character of a slacker who does nothing all day besides poking fun at the most ridiculous situations. This time, he's the only witness to a murder committed by an evil drug lord while he's smoking a joint. Marked as a target, he runs…
"It's almost a shame to smoke it. It's like killing a unicorn... with, like, a bomb. "
I love every minute of this, it hasn't become worn out for me at all during the numerous watches since first seeing it in the theater back in 2008. Pineapple Express is pretty much the perfect silly comedy for me - stoners involved in ridiculous situations and constantly saying hilarious things, over-the-top action and fight scenes, explosions, 'heat-seeking missiles... bloodhounds... foxes... barracudas....' - all of this involving Seth Rogen and the usual crew that show up with him in comedies.
It's a great time.
"I shot someone who was already dead, so that doesn't really count as a murder."
Prior to Pineapple Express, David Gordon Green's highest grossing movie was All The Real Girls, which made just barely over half a million bucks. This seems rather ridiculous to me. I mean, Undertow only grossed a hundred and fifty thousand dollars in its run. Were people stupid back 2004 or something? Even Snow Angels didn't break half a million at the box office. It must have been a nice feeling for DGG when he checked the box office on the Monday after Pineapple Express was released, and saw that in its opening weekend, it grossed much more than all of his previous films had combined.
Giving this film less than a perfect five star rating based purely on a comedy level would be a travesty. It's consistently quotable, highly rewatchable, and not a moment of it loses its effect on me no matter how many times I go back.
It emerged at a time when it was literally shocking to find that David Gordon Green was going balls-out comedy, long before his stretch of ridiculousness emerged with films like Your Higness and The Sitter. Our circle of friends were both Apatow and DGG-worshipers at the time of the release of Pineapple Express, so to see a collaboration between the two was both mind-blowing and a complete surprise.
The script from Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg is…
#37. I decided to revisit this hilarious comedy after I saw it was on TV. What a great comedy with over the top but disturbingly realistic violence. The writing and banter are what make this movie great, though.
"My second favorite civil engineer behind Hannskarl Bandel, Madison Square Garden."
This is a fairly dumb movie, but it's certainly got its moments. The premise is ridiculous with some extremely over the top and insane scenes (especially near the end), but it's entertaining in moderation. Some of the dialogue is hysterical and it's weird seeing Seth Rogen play the most reasonable person in a film. The shift in tone in the final third of the film redeems some of the banal earlier sections, pushing this movie just over average. I'm sure this film would be more entertaining if I was one to partake in the movie's primary catalyst, but for now it's just a decent watch.
"You just got killed by a Daewoo Lanos mother fucker"
Quotable throughout with a typical Seth Rogen/Evan Goldberg plotline.
Pineapple Express stars Seth Rogen as a weed-loving process server named Dale Denton and James Franco is Saul Silver, his dealer who just wants to have a friend. One night while delivering a summons, Dale accidentally witnesses a murder involving Ted Jones, Saul's supplier (Gary Cole) and a corrupt cop (Rosie Perez). When Dale accidentally drops his joint on the street containing Pineapple Express, a new brand of marijuana sold exclusively by Saul, both Dale and Saul find themselves on the run from Ted and his henchmen Matheson and Budlofsky, played by Craig Robinson and Kevin Corrigan, respectively. They also seek help from Saul's fellow two-faced dealer Red (Danny McBride) while they have to keep Dale's underage girlfriend Angie (Amber…
Kicking off winter break.
Stoner-comedy-action. Why not.
Smoking weed would have killed lesser brain cells than by watching this movie.
Worst movie I have watched this year.
Fucking hate it.
More like a cross dildo shoved into every hole.
The only reason this movie did well is because of placing weed plants here and there on the set.
Comedy as we know it has come to an end. This movie is a perfect example of just that. My 9 year old cousin could have directed this movie better off. The editing and the acting was subpar. So was the story. I believe that the script was written by one of the children on the set. What am I telling? Kids would have written a better…
"Takes that shit to the next level man... Odelay!"
Dammit, this movie is so fucking funny!
Every chance I get, I try to do the Scavenger Hunts here on Letterboxd because they always look like so…
