Chloë Grace Moretz,
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
As he is handing Dale some guns, Red (Danny McBride says, "Ted Jones messed with the wrong melon farmers." This is a reference to the common network television practice of dubbing over "swear" words with less "objectionable" words or terms that have a similar sound and length - even if the replacement words don't really make sense in the context of the movie. "Melon Farmers" was used most famously as the dub for "Mother F***ers" in the network television version of the Die Hard series of movies (in which lead character John McClane's famous catchphrase, "Yippie-kai-yay, Mother F***ers!," became "Yippie-kai-yay, Melon Farmers!").

I notice that a lot of reactions involve references to real life. Being Belgian (that's next to the Netherlands - you know, Amsterdam - where soft-drugs are legal) I must say that I've never seen this kind of behaviour. Sure, I've seen people waste parts of their life like this, but they still managed to prioritize. Being chased and possibly killed, would count as a priority in my book.
That's the first weakness of this movie: the plot relying on decisions by stoned protagonists. Hell, I wanted to shoot them at some point. Second weakness must be the script. I'm used to better and wittier stuff from these people (writers and actors). No, I wasn't laughing here, at all, and I was in a good mood when I started watching.
Are there good points? Well, I guess some of the characters, with little screen time, actually did do well. They did provide some comic relief, and were at least consistent in their actions. The fat cop and the two bullies come to mind. Also, the camera-work didn't fail.
This didn't save the experience. Overall a bad trip, and I would advise this movie to people with lacking brain function caused by alcohol or drugs, or just normal mentally challenged people.
