Dave Skylark and his producer Aaron Rapaport run the celebrity tabloid show "Skylark Tonight". When they land an interview with a surprise fan, North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, they are recruited by the CIA to assassinate him.
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.
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
James Franco had stated in an interview with MTV news--and Judd Apatow stated the same at a Comic Con event--that they had considered making a movie sequel that would intersect the story lines of this movie and "Superbad (2007)." This never materialized. See more »
The day Saul and Dale wake up in the woods is Daylight Savings Day, which is always on a Sunday. However, Dale visited his girlfriend's high school the day before which should have been Saturday when it should have been closed. See more »
Herpes is for life, bro!
Yeah, well, I'm gonna try to definitely put some sort of medical ointment on it. I've been takin Vicodin; that really doesn't take down the swelling, though.
It's from that time. I told you, man! You wanted to eat that lollipop out of that stripper's snatch! You wanted to do it!
Out of her vagina, I know! Remember what you did? What'd you do?
You ate a box of Nerds outta her butt-hoooole.

FX airings include an extended version of the phone conversation scene between Ted and Cheung. Ted's son interrupts the conversation and asks his father to cut the call short so he can have the phone to himself. Ted refuses to listen to his son's demands and the scene continues as usual. See more »
Well, If I never get my Freaks And Geeks reunion, this satisfied me pretty well. I imagined this is what would have happened had Daniel Desario and Ken Miller never been classmates, and met later in life. These two have always had a good chemistry, and James Franco again played the perfect stoner, even if it was just implied in F&G.
If Bill Haverchuck would have showed up like he did in Knocked Up and Superbad, I would have been in Heaven.
Please Judd Apatow, bring the whole gang back together! Oh, and the movie was awesome;) Apatow created a whole new genre- the Bromance Action Comedy. I hope there's a sequel, and Red can be a running gag.
