Pineapple Express - Movie Reivew

Pineapple Express (R) 107 minutes D+
Skunk Weed

Starring Seth Rogen, James Franco, Gary Cole, Rosie Perez, Danny R. McBride, Amber Heard, and James Remar

Underachieving stoner Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) witnesses a murder by a dirty cop and a drug lord. After leaving his roach at the crime scene, the bad guys quickly trace the rare strain of pot (called Pineapple Express) back to Denton's drug dealer and eventually Denton.

This film is part buddy comedy, part action comedy, part crap. There are some funny moments, but overall I thought the film grew redundant, tiresome, and silly. Depending on your sense of humor, some of you might laugh your ass off. But if you want to see a stoner based film that's well worth the price of admission, seek out a film called The Wackness... it's far superior bud.
