Dale Denton (Rogen), a process server with a weed fixation, witnesses a murder and turns to his dealer, Saul (James Franco), for support. The murderer is actually Saul's main drug supplier, and because of Saul's access to some extremely rare high-grade pot (called Pineapple Express) the two are quickly tracked down and put on the run. Like all Apatow/Rogen vehicles, the movie deals with the theme of men succumbing to adulthood and all the adjustments they are forced to make in the process. However, unlike KNOCKED UP and THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN, PINEAPPLE EXPRESS is just too wacky to offer any lessons. Still, there's more going on here than giggles and the munchies. Indie director David Gordon Green (SNOW ANGELS) brings a subtle auteur's touch to the proceedings, approaching the smoking scenes with his distinctively loose feel and giving the action sequences a wonderfully dated sheen that makes them look more like a fight from KNIGHT RIDER than the empty flash of 21st-century blow-'em-ups. It is Franco, however, who truly steals this movie--he hasn't been this charming since his days on FREAKS AND GEEKS. There's only so many ways to play a stoner, but Franco puts his own endearing, lovable spin on the type, portraying Saul as a kind-hearted, well-intentioned yet hardcore dope smoker.

2nd worst film ever made, after borat

Awful, awful, awful, awful, awful.

(Borat was brilliant, Tropic Thunder was OK)

Did I mention this was awful?

Can't believe I paid good money to see this at the cinema.
I'm normally pretty easily pleased when it comes to movies, but this really is awful.

I bought this when it was on offer at play.com and when it arrived i realised ive already seen it on sky! Ooops

Not a great film but worth a watch for Rogen fans
Cant really complain for 3 quid though

Definitely not one of the worst films ever made, but that doesn't mean it's worth paying for...

I do like stoner comedies..not this one though.

Can't believe what I'm reading. I thought this was a great film!

This goes next to Tropic Thunder as a comedy film that just wasn't funny.

Well, I for one enjoyed this. The car chase scene alone makes it worth £2.99

not great, but a brilliant performance from James Franco, worth watching just for him... and the bit in the woods

Excellent film.

I thought this film was extremely funny, as well as borat. Saw both of these completely free of any sort of drug or alcohol by the way.

this film is well funny u cant call a film awful jus because u dont find it funny people find different things funny i dont find family guy funny but i understand if someone else finds it funny

Loved it - I was sober and drug free, so many flippin' haters!

one of the best stoner films of all time imho- i guess it's an aquired taste :- "

One of the greatest films that I've ever watched, hilarious and I would recommend it to anyone!!

Lol I thought how is this hot for a dvd but just seen when it was posted
