Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
As the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett's teddy bear, Ted, came to life and has been by John's side ever since - a friendship that's tested when Lori, John's girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.
A shy student trying to reach his family in Ohio, a gun-toting tough guy trying to find the last Twinkie, and a pair of sisters trying to get to an amusement park join forces to travel across a zombie-filled America.
John Beckwith and Jeremy Grey, a pair of committed womanizers who sneak into weddings to take advantage of the romantic tinge in the air, find themselves at odds with one another when John meets and falls for Claire Cleary.
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
I watched the movie at Sneak Preview, so I haven't seen the unrated DVD/Blu Ray cut yet. Still even that version, was pretty grim and a movie that will not appeal to people that get grossed out easily. I haven't seen "Cheech & Chong" in a while, but I do feel it has the same feeling.
The movie begins with a bang/laugh and you can tell right there at that instance if you will like the movie or not. If you think the intro to the movie isn't good/funny, than you won't enjoy the rest of it. At least not as much. I could tell by the audience reaction. Some did laugh at the beginning and those that didn't, weren't amused along the ride either.
The movie walks a very thin line and doesn't care, if it walks all over the place. But even in it's weirdest moments or when it's completely off-balance, it still is kinda fun. At least that's how I felt! :o)
