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

Trivia

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!").

Quotes

Dale Denton: What the fuck is this thing?
Saul: Ah. Cross joint.
Dale Denton: Yeah.
Saul: You ever smoke one of those?
Dale Denton: You can SMOKE this?
Saul: Hell yeah, man!
Dale Denton: No.
Saul: This. Is. The future, this is like the apex of the vortex of joint engineering. It's rumored that M. M. O'Shaughnessy designed the first one - the guy who, uh, designed the Golden Gate Bridge. My second favorite civil engineer behind Hannskarl Bandel: Madison Square Garden... What you do is you light all three ends at the same time...

7 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was not interested in seeing this movie as I thought it would be a stupid teen story. My daughter went with her older cousins, she is only 16 and since the theater had strict security I was forced to go in as her guardian. I am 46 years old and I laughed the whole entire movie. By the end I was laughing SO hard that I could not take it anymore. I think I laughed more than the kids. There were so many laugh out loud scenes and the interaction between the characters was pure gold.It really took me back to my younger days-so for you older people this is really one movie you do not want to miss. Be sure to go to the bathroom before because this is definitely one of those pee in your pants movies.
