Roger Ebert Pineapple Express has all the elements you'd expect from the genre: male bonding, immature sexual desires, verbal scatology, formidable drug abuse, fight scenes, gunfire, explosions. Yawn? Not this time. It's a quality movie even if the material is unworthy of the treatment. As a result, yes, it's a druggie comedy that made me laugh.
Adam Nayman The film is an ecstatic celebration of adolescent crap, devoid of deconstructive finesse or even good action scenes
James Berardinelli The primary audience for this film might be those who partake from time to time, but it's not the only audience.
Peter Travers Pineapple Express slaps a big, fat, goofy smile on your face that lasts for days. I already have the munchies for more. Rogen, Franco and McBride are on the march into stoner legend.
C. Fuchs Considering all of the adult material in the flick, it's certainly not for kids or those sensitive to four-letter words, drug use, and violence. But its over-the-top, exaggerated nature and the fact that it and its characters end up growing on you makes it something of a surprise.
Tomatometer Both funny and scatter shot, this loose-knit action/buddy/stoner comedy bridges genres and keeps a steady tempo of low ball laughs.
