Sally Hawkins in Happy-Go-Lucky and James Franco in Milk

Photo: Miramax and Focus Features The only thing James Franco needs to concern himself with right now is continuing his streak to remind folks he isn't just the stupid character Harry Osbourne from the overblown Spider-Man franchise, a franchise I am sure has put plenty of coin in his pocket, but did nothing for his career.

There are many things to like about Pineapple Express, an old-school action-comedy retooled as a stoner goof, but Franco's return to humor is a cause for celebration, or at least relief that he's finally come back to us. As a perpetually baked pot dealer, Franco colors his many laugh lines with a sweet, childlike naïveté that's completely disarming. It also helps set the tone for a film that's »
