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…
"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.
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.
Sure, it's probably not a 5-star perfect film by many standards...but rating it based on comedic value alone means it should receive nothing less.
I too have been plagued by addiction. Paint inhaling.
Be as it may be, there's no loyalty among addicts. So I can say with a clear conscience that this movie was terrible
This is a nice, nonsensical marijuana-oriented comedy.
Hart Street loft, Brooklyn, New York, with Annie S.
Tipica pelicula de la dupla mas evidente y redundantemente drogadicta del cine, va bien para pasar el rato y desconectar un poco.
Danny McBride vs. James Franco & Seth Rogen. That scene alone is worth the price of admission.
This is one of my favorite guilty pleasures. I know many find them silly but I really enjoy Rogen and Franco's comedic buddy stoner comedies. And throw in Danny Mcbride and Craig Robinson as well and you got yourself a 5 star movie for me. But hey, I might be crazy since I also loved The Interview as apparently the only one in the world 😄
One third mediocre action movie.
One third sentimental friendship between an off-putting creep (Rogen) and his comparatively likeable friend (Franco).
One-third traditional stoner comedy: and this is the element of Pineapple Express that holds things together. There are enough great gags and exchanges to keep it entertaining on a scene-by-scene basis, and Franco turns in a really fine-tuned performance. So does Amber Heard, for that matter, but her character's relationship with Rogen is really unnerving and, to my mind, badly handled.
In terms of recent stoner comedies, I found Gregg Araki's Smiley Face more interesting (although not necessarily funnier).

Μια από τις πιο ξεκαρδιστικές ταινίες που έχω δει ποτέ.Σοβαρά,γέλαγα σχεδόν κάθε δευτερόλεπτο.Ο Seth Rogen είναι ξεκαρδιστικός και ο James Franco βρίσκει τον ρόλο της ζωής του καθώς αυτή την έκφραση της μαστούρας την κουβαλάει συνέχεια.Επίσης περιέχει την πιο αστεία μάχη που έχω δει στα 15 χρόνια της ζωής μου!Να κάτι που δεν περίμενα πως θα λατρέψω...
