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 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…

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.
That was some pretty good shit!
"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.
Fun at the beginning, but ultra-violence at the end left me cold. Was that really necessary?.......
Watching one of the best stoner movies while drunk at 1PM
Take that, stoners
The dialogue was amazing, the scenarios were hit or miss, but the ending just killed it. The drained all the humour out and then tried to reinject some with the final scene, but this movie could have been twice as good if they cut 30 minutes from the ending.
I didn't like pineapple express as much as I hoped I would, when it first came out I thought it looked funny but I never saw it so I was pretty excited when I got it in a set of movies for christmas, but in they end I just didn't think it was very funny, it definitely had its moments and the plot was halfway decent, but a lot of it just felt unecessary, many lines, usually at the beginning or end of scenes, weren't funny or relevant, I was really trying to like pineapple express, it just wasn't that good
Danny McBride stole the show. He's worth a star all by himself. The rest was funny but the plot was disappointing. Franco was really funny too.
That was some pretty good shit!
