Plot Outline:

A comedy along the likes of Superbad meets The Big Lebowski meets Knocked up follows a couple of like minded losers in which one of them happens to witness a horrible crime. While one tells the other of what he just saw and how he was chased and almost killed, they take it upon themselves to get revenge, trust themselves, and try to solve the mystery on their own. In the end they find themselves running for their lives and that thug life is not as easy as it seems.

Epic stoner-action movie. This is awesome and Rogen and Franco are brilliant together.

Pineapple Express is a consistently funny comedic gem. It's a chaotic mashup of stoner buddy film with a detective thriller that is a combination of self awareness, satire, and silliness that works. The chemistry and timing that the cast share with each other makes even the simplest of scenes hilarious and James Franco deserves a mention for the braindead creation of Saul, the weed dealer, who echoes Brad Pitt's character in True Romance.

Pineapple Express review

This should be viewed without any expectations and just let it ride. Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) is a process server who accidentally witnesses a murder of an Asian guy. Ted Jones (Gary Cole) and Officer Carol Brazier (Rosie Perez) were responsible for the killing. Denton then runs to his dealer Saul Silver (James Franco). Starts off a bit slow then picks up after Dale explains his concern to Saul and go on a wild goose chase much like the comedies of the 80's and concept similar to The Big Lebowski. Screenplay just brought out the humor and hints of philosophical lines such as: Red - ""What we do in this life echoes in eternity!" Dale - "Don't you wanna get up and do somethin' about it?" and Saul - "Safety first, then teamwork." Topics on friendship, realities of life and maturation. ...

"Pineapple Express" by Yojimbo

Seth Rogen stars as a 25 year old stoner who witnesses a drug murder, so he and his waster dealer go on the run with two hitmen and a corrupt policewoman in pursuit. I'm not a big fan of contemporary American comedy but I enjoyed Superbad and thought I'd give this a go, but if I'd known it was a stoner comedy I probably wouldn't have bothered. I know from experience that stoners are THE most boring, immature and irritating people on the face of the Earth (with the possible exception of musicians' girlfriends, but I digress) and lo, Pineapple Express for the most part is watching two annoying people shout and repetitively bicker at each other while smoking weed and acting like a pair of tools. It has the now overly familiar cocktail of wacky gangsters in pursuit, punctuated with comic acti...

One of the most overrated comedies EVER!!!

In the summer of 2008, there were two comedies that had quite a lot of hype surrounding them. Tropic Thunder and Pineapple Express. I saw Tropic Thunder that summer and I fucking loved it! I didn't see Pineapple Express but I sure did hear a shit load of people telling me "OMG Dude!! You have to see this movie!! It's the funniest movie ever!!!" Well, I finally saw the movie on DVD with my folks and....oh boy....this has to be one of the least funniest, most boring, most overrated movies I have EVER seen.

Don't you just hate it when everyone gets so crazy about a movie and you're the odd man out who hates the goddamn thing? A lot of you might just be saying "Oh, you just don't get it. This isn't the comedy for you. You have no sense of humor!" Oh trust me, I have a sense of humor. But ...
