With Pineapple Express, you got a great blend of stoner comedy, action, and suspense. It isn't has funny as Superbad or Knocked Up, but the humour is very similar, and by no means bad. There are some absolutely hilarious moments, and some great lines like; "If you don't do exactly as I say, I'm gonna drag you out and fuck you in the street!" Although it is a bit disappointing, Pineapple Express is still a hilarious movie, with some fantastic moments. Awesome!

Hard to say why I didn't like it more, but I don't mean that as a knock. I certainly enjoyed it, and even laughed a fair amount, but overall I was left feeling a little flat. Franco and McBride were the real breakout stars here...outshining Rogen to a degree. My main problem is the same one I had with "Hot Fuzz", when out of nowhere, we go from a slapstick/stoner comedy into an action-packed gorefest. I "get" what they're going for, but it's still awkward and on its way to being cliche.

Featured a fair amount of irritating scenes (the relationship between Rogen and Heard, the ending which was pointless,...), and lacked a human element that both Knocked Up and Superbad shared (the latter still being my favorite film from Apatow). But I did laugh... a lot !!! The film is just hysterical and downright ridiculous. To me, Pineapple Express may be the most quotable film since I dunno, The Big Lebowski. "Fuck the Police !!!", man, I almost cried from laughter...

It's pretty funny but it can drag at times and it doesn't feel like a coherent whole. It's a bit of a jumbled mess, especially when contrasted with, say, Superbad or Knocked Up.

Though it's not as good as Knocked Up, Pineapple Express is a great mesh of action and comedy in a way that's rarely done this well. The comedy itself is getting stale as it's not much different than this group's half-dozen or so movies from this decade, but this one brought in a few new players, namely James Franco and the guy who played Red who are just hilarious and really add a lot to the team.

Overall the plot doesn't work... but there are enough laughs (even for us non-potheads) to make it entertaining. Aptow's success rests on his core audience of the easily amused, but this movie slightly transcends the pee-pee/poo-poo humor of his previous efforts.

Like "Hot Fuzz" on weed; though this has its moments and is generally pretty entertaining, it never made me laugh or cheer in the same ways Hot Fuzz did. Perhaps it's an unfair comparison, but nonetheless I felt this entry is a bit slight for Apatow & co.

Got a few laughs, but mostly just silly. What was the point of the relationship between Rogen and his gf? Saul and Red were pretty funny, but I kind of had enough of both of them by the end. Just not really my thing. It was all a bit over the top for me.

Great movie with many hilarious scene's but doesn't reach the level of Superbad wich is hilarious all the time. But still one of the best comedy's of 2008. James Franco and Seth Rogen are super funny but it are Craig Robinson and Danny McBride who steal the show. 'Matheson' should get his own film. You don't have to like weed to like this movie. Favorite quote : Thug life !

Not the best Apatow production you'll see but it delivers some laughs and a pretty good story. The writers (Rogen and Goldberg) took years writing "Superbad", a far superior film. Maybe they should have given this one a little more time.

It's a different animal from the standard Apatow flick, even though it's got a lot of the same elements. There's a lot more action than I expected going into a stoner comedy, and it does a good action/buddy cop flick parody, while doing stoner comedy, while doing standard Apatow-style comedy too. It's funny. Really funny. But, as a movie, it's a bit all over the place...it couldn't really decide what it was or where it was going, so it's a bit messy. Still, it's FUNNY, Franco in particular.

A loving tribute to both marijuana and 80s action films. Hot Fuzz this ain't, but I'll be damned if it doesn't come close. It's a step away from the comfort zone for Green, and he brings an artful direction sorely lacking from most Apatow pictures -- the forest montage is an exquisitely crafted piece of sloppy fun. The dialog is endlessly quotable ("Pandora only comes out of the box, he can't go back in!"), and Franco gives a truly inspired performance. This has Cult Classic written all over it.

Pineapple Express is a typical dumb and fun comedy that you'd expect with Rogen attached to it. While not being overly clever, it does play well into its absurdity and that's where most of its laughs will be found. There isn't much here in the way of compelling writing or story, with much of everything being surface level filler. If you can get behind a stoner comedy, this will work for you, but it will turn others off. Not the best of Rogen or Franck's work, but still solid.

I watched Pineapple Express and Knocked Up on the same day, and wow, what a contrast! Pineapple Express was really funny at times, but Rogen's character was way more annoying than in Knocked Up, and in general I found the movie too long, and containing boring and pointless dialogues. Good humor and action, but besides that the script was awful in my opinion.

Ridiculously quotable film is probably the most artistically inclined of the Apatow films thusfar. With director David Gordon Green, this isn't unexpected, but his sheer love for cheesy 80s actioners is. This is a starmaking turn for McBride and Franco does extremely well with a role that could have been a cut-rate stoner stereotype.

A stoner and his dealer get caught up in a drug war and the comedy's exactly what you'd expect-a combination of "that's gotta hurt" slapstick (Red is the obvious champ in this area) and loud swear-laden and weed-infused riffs of dialogue. Doesn't break much new ground but Franco's dim Saul and Rogen's straight man Dale have good chemistry and keep you engaged in spite of the mediocre plot. An uproarious improvised epilogue at the diner makes up for the over-the-top gun-happy climax.

Pineapple Express is a film that I enjoyed for most of its duration, but was really let down by its ending. Look past that, and it's funny, and possesses a bunch of characters that you will grow to like. It lacks tension though, which, while not an incredibly important point, makes the action scenes less effective. Rogan and Franco play characters you will end up enjoying the company of, and the jokes are usually enough to keep you laughing. At least, until the end when the shoot 'em up begins.

2. 10 years later definitely not as funny as I remember it. Maybe I've grown older and more cynical and can't appreciate simplistic and carefree humour properly anymore, maybe I've simply seen too many formulaic Hollywood stoner/buddy flicks now, or maybe it never was that good to begin with. Then again Franco is awesome as usual, and makes me smile just by smiling (I know, sounds silly but hey), there is some decent humour overall, but is a bit forgettable to be honest.

The film was a disappointment for me; I know, I should not go into films with expectations. I should go in fresh! For a stoner action comedy, it's too slow and is not as ridiculous as it ought to be (despite Red's apparent immortality). However, the dynamic between Franco and Rogan, as well as McBride, is surprisingly authentic and sincere. In fact, I'm not a Franco fan, but I like him in this. Some advice to Rogan; shout less, as your shouting just comes across as whinging and whining.

It's both hilarious and completely brutal, although the plot is meandering and the characters come off as annoying sometimes, and the plot never really coheres in the end. It's still great at providing both laughs and cringes, and I expect I'd like it better if I was high when I watched it.

The first half is very funny, Franco and McBride are both beyond brilliant, Rogen is his usual charismatically schlubby self, and it's nice to have an Apatow-style film with a real director behind the camera; it makes a big difference. Once it slips into an ineffective homage to '80s action flicks in the last act, though, it loses almost all of its humor and becomes, well, boring. Cole and Perez are both totally wasted. Very good stoner flick, but could've benefitted from a couple rewrites.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg bring you a new kind of stoner buddy action/comedy. The hilarious cross-joint trio of Seth Rogen, James Franco, and Danny McBride are brilliant together in this instant stoner comedy classic. Although the love story feels a bit forced, the unexpected bromances were only enhanced by the onscreen chemistry between multiple characters. All the deep friendship provides enough heart, to go behind all of the over-the-top jokes and action.

"Pineapple Express" is an exquisitely funny picture. It just drives forward through a crazy load of messy situations, boasting one of Seth Rogen's best performances, paired with a very convincing James Franco, great and highly quotable lines and very powerful action including several very tight - and hilarious - fist fights. Consistent fun.

Well, this comedy would not be anything without Rogen. Litterally. I would not touch it even with a ten foot pole. But Rogen wrote it for himself and that's the point.
