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.

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.
War is upon you! Prepare to suck the cock of karma!
A bad trip with a good friend. After being in the right place at the wrong time, a stoner witnesses a murder. Naturally, the augmented paranoia gets the best of him and so begins this entertaining story.
There are some good jokes in the film, and there also some not-so-good jokes. This is a bona fide stoner film. You would not laugh otherwise.
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…
"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.
'I thought the hurricane season was over!' ...I feel like silly stoner comedies are my deep dark guilty pleasures!
This is my trillionth viewing of the film, it is safe to say that the Franco/Rogen duo are easily the most re-watchable pair. Despite knowing the jokes and the outcomes, the delivery of these are brilliantly timed and genuinely hysterical. The comedy ranges on a scale of silly childish humour to awkward humour to gory bloody humour. This film has a relatively simple premise, but explaining the plot is not such an easy task. Regardless, brilliant film.
Definitely Recommend it! 'This is the product of baby fucking'.
Film typique de la bande Seth Rogen/James Franco.
On suit l'histoire de 2 stonards mais tournée à leurs sauces (traitement réaliste, blague géniale juste avant une blague très lourde, ...). Je sais pas trop quoi en penser. Parfois cela frôle le génie et ensuite c'est super débile.
A revoir pour se faire un avis définitif.

The modern stoner comedy classic. Watch it.
This is by far one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. The acting is great. Knee slapping good
When I first watched this, I was about fourteen years old and I loved every single second of it. So when I was searching through David Gordon Green's IMDb page, I was really excited to revisit Pineapple Express. Unfortunately, when it started, I knew that I was in for the crushing of one of my favorite comedies of my preteen years. The whole first half of Pineapple Express was just a train of “legalize marijuana” jokes mixed with some fart humor. I did find that after the second half, the film found it’s footing, and actually became very funny as it focused less on the “lal pot should be legal 420blazeit” jokes, and more on the friendship of Dale and…
A Daewoo Lanos!!!!!
It's not bad, a few good jokes. The first half of the film is quite boring though.
After high school, Seth Rogen looked like a middle-aged man. People tell me I look like him all the time.
I'm younger than Seth Rogen.
