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.

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'.
Super funny, I like this pair!
I'm not a huge fan of Seth Rogen's brand of humour, finding it a little too smug and self satisfied at times.
However, I found this movie about a couple of stoners and their ever more out of control day to be a genuinely hilarious comedy of errors and misadventure.
As their day becomes more and more surreal and demented I was swept along, leading to a climax that, when it comes, is a suitably bonkers and violent finale.
Rogen and Franco play endearingly dumb a little too well, and the supporting cast are excellent, especially Danny McBride's Red. Watching him survive ever more nasty brushes with death was one of the comedy highlights for me.
On the strength of this perhaps I'll go check out some of the Rogen back catalogue that I'd always been putting off from watching.
The stoner film to stone all stoner films.

Gute Kifferkomödie, die aber auch (wie die meisten anderen Genre Vertreter,) nach einer bestimmten Zeit etwas anstrengend wird. Die Längen ziehen "Ananas Express" zwar ein bisschen runter, trotzdem kann man dem Film mal eine Chance geben.
A surprisingly well done action-comedy will always make me happy.
The best work Green has made besides his debut, but mostly because any other time he has tried at an art film it has ended up being with unaffective or a piece of shit like All the Real Girls.
Just so cool, man.
"What if, the characters of a gang movie, were just idiot stoners?"
A sentence like that was uttered and, Pineapple Express was born. Funny, oddly auter-istic, oddly sweet, oddly violent, just odd.
Oddly (dare i say) genius(?).
