Storyline

Lazy court-process clerk and stoner Dale Denton has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver: to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. But when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city's most dangerous drug lord, he panics and dumps his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene. Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him--and it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they're not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia: incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both. All aboard the Pineapple Express. Written by Anonymous

Another solid Seth Rogen comedy
11 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film is just like other comedies from this crew but just like those this film is really solid and everything they touch is decent. This film sees a drug user Seth Rogen and his dealer James Franco attempting to escape from the powers above. Now Rogen and Franco are fantastic and their chemistry is great, Everything they touch turns to gold and they keep producing solid film after solid film. The Side characters are all solid Danny McBride as Red was funny when he was there and was a really funny supporting character. Rogen's girlfriend and the bad guys are all funny and solid and really bring something to the film. Now a real negative to the film is that of the story, there isn't really a coherent plot and side characters leave and arrive out of nowhere and it makes the film feel disjointed. The script is really good just like the other comedies by this group and each character seems to get their moment to shine. The style was decent but sometimes a bit ridiculous and over bloody which can be a critic on these films. Overall I enjoyed this film and I think this crew are doing some great work recently.
