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…

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.

Whatte Fun. Seth Rogen & James Franco comic timing is good.

What on Earth is the title all about? That was my first sentiment as my gaze fixed upon these two red words, three characters and the smoky surroundings of its poster as if I was zoned out from pure highness. Little did I know that the words Pineapple Expresswere actually a strain of cannabis and I was zoning out at the misunderstanding of these two words. The majority of people unfamiliar with the type of cannabisPineapple Express would be thinking this was a film of trains and fruits, but no no no, this is a stoner action comedy featuring some of the biggest stoner actors around. Released in 2008, Pineapple Express was one of the first movies of the This…
While I thought that the premise was interesting, the humor just fell flat for me and I did not find it all that funny. This was a film that wanted me to yell at the filmmakers "screaming does not equal humor", as there were several scenes where that seemed to be where the humor was supposed to come from.

Likely to endure more as a cultural artifact for this time period than an actual movie (it's not even the best out of DGG's brief Apatow comedy phase), but also this is probably the role Franco most deserved an Oscar for in his career.
