Pineapple Express

Put this in your pipe and smoke it.


Pineapple Express
The latest from the Judd Apatow stable was a smash hit in the US. Our heroes are a bailiff and his pot dealer. The bailiff tries out a new variety (the Pineapple Express) and then heads to serve a warrant ... inadvertently on the Pineapple Express importer. Before he can, he see the importer and a dirty cop off another man. He and his dealer decide to lie low, but the importer is on to them and sends his hitmen after them. After much hilarity and confusion, the duo engineer a war between two rival drug gangs, leading to a rather high body count. Be warned that the film is very pro-pot, and full of bad language.

Roger Ebert quote iconPineapple 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.

eye Weekly
Adam Nayman quote iconThe film is an ecstatic celebration of adolescent crap, devoid of deconstructive finesse or even good action scenes

ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe primary audience for this film might be those who partake from time to time, but it's not the only audience.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconPineapple 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.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconConsidering 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 quote iconBoth funny and scatter shot, this loose-knit action/buddy/stoner comedy bridges genres and keeps a steady tempo of low ball laughs.
