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.
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 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 for his life, dragging…
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…
"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.

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…
Rewatch, immernoch Genial!!!
The story of two friends, one is a drug dealer and the other is the client. I love the chemistry of these two, and I like to take this film as a continuation of Franco and Rogens characters from Freaks and Geeks after high school.

As far as your American stoner comedies go, this one is top of the pile.
I love this movie, it's a creative and well shot comedy that ticks all of the right boxes with me. The dialogue is great, the characters are interesting and the plot works incredibly well. The action/crime side of the film really gives it a edge that will set it aside from most other comedies of this nature. It's brave, pretty shocking with it's violence and it has a strange feel-good factor to it.
It's silly but it's also smart. Well worth a watch, preferably after a joint or two.
“Pineapple Express” showcases the biggest problem I have with most (if not all) 2 hour comedies. The beginning of the movie sucks. The first 40 minutes of this movie almost ruined the movie. The first 40 minutes has cheap and lame jokes, no point to be in the movie, and overall is just boring. The first 40 minutes are so bad, I almost was thinking about turning off the movie not knowing what was next in store.
If you manage to get through the first 40 minutes, the rest of the movie is a funny and highly entertaining action comedy. The humor being funny and rather dark and the action sequences being violent and well shot. The cinematography in this…
Meh, probably best to watch this high.
I fucking hate Judd Apatow.
Franco y Rogen es su máxima expresión. Divertida, tonta y entretenida.
