Pineapple Express

Stoner Dale Denton's (Seth Rogen) enjoyment of a rare strain of marijuana may prove fatal when he drops his roach in a panic after witnessing a murder. Upon learning that the fancy weed can be traced back to them, Dale and his dealer (James Franco) go on the lam, with a dangerous drug lord (Gary Cole) and crooked cop (Rosie Perez) hot on their heels.

Aug 12, 2008 - AnDroo.Napoli on Pineapple Express

I kinda expected more from this group... All the funny parts were in the comercials for the most part, the comedy was forced, the action was goofy(yet somehow well done). To me the only good part was how the "Villians" interacted with one another. About 30% of the way into the movie I was just waiting for it to be over. Really not much else to say, as there wasn't much there to begin with.

Behold a new genre: Stoner-Action Flick

I gotta say, I was expecting a lot more silly pot jokes. You know, the standard 'weird hallucinations' and 'Oh Noes I has the munchies' - sort of a "Harold and Kumar Run From The Mob" type of a thing.

Instead, I witnessed a beautifully put together movie dealing with the practical aspects of avoiding a reprisal murder whilst blitzed out of one's mind. Apparently, pot makes you totally unable to miss the bad-guys, even when there's no reason to believe you've ever used a firearm (much less a Kalashnikov).

Touching on universal themes (Including but not limited to: "Drug dealers are kinda your friend, but not really, but sometimes they don't realize that, so it's best to pretend they are", and "High school girls are pretty immature") this film combines equal parts character development and morality play with a healthy dose of excellent writing. It's definitely worth seeing.

(I should probably point out that the aforementioned "equal parts" both equal zero.)

Comedy and Action Come Together Beautifully

Ok when I first heard of this movie I thought to myself “ why should I go see this movie” aside from being a movie with a whole lot of marijuana and everyone seemed to be stoned. Yet from the beginning of the movie I was surprised. Yes everyone was stoned out of their mind but also I enjoyed the good humor acting that comes along with being stoned. I rather like the way they brought in the action like rush hour and the comedy of Cheech and Chong into one movie and actually pulled it off. Just the right balance. One thing I wished they would have showed is how did that guy get out of the chair, and for those who just took that as me spoiling the movie. Rest assure that there are many good scenes to choose from if you haven't actually went to see it. One thing that I was told prior to actually watching this movie is to actually partake in actions of getting baked. And I must say, if you take the time to smell the green flowers from day to day, if you actually watch this movie while in an elevated state you could understand some of the humor that is Pineapple Express.
