Pineapple Express Reviews

As stoner comedies go, it's of a high enough grade for even Cheech & Chong themselves to put it in a Rizla and smoke it.

Pineapple Express has its fair share of laughs, but it's a fundamentally heartless and unlovable minor work from Team Apatow.

Watching this without having got stoned first is like watching a 3D movie without the special glasses. There are a few moderate laughs (and a nice Jude Law gag) but the full-on gory violence is disconcerting and unfunny.

The problem about being hopelessly stoned is that you also become hopelessly boring. So it is here.

More half-baked than Superbad or Knocked Up but still solidly entertaining, if unnecessarily violent, and with a great performance from James Franco.

But there's still time for a gloriously unexpected coda, a moment of quiet reflection and narrative ingenuity that confirms 'Pineapple Express' as the finest comedy of the year.

Fans of David Gordon Green, you may well leave feeling confused. Fans of daft laughs and James Franco, you're in for one of the funniest comedies of the year.

It shouldn't be funny. It has drugs, immature grown men, car chases, guns - even a modern remake of Mary Poppins would get this lot in nowadays. But you'll laugh.

Another winner from the Apatow factory, this is a stoner comedy that soars.

My companions had varying degrees of a good time (from "not" to "more than expected") but I think if you can love these guys, you can dig this violent bromantic action-comedy.

It's pretty pointless, really, but the characters are so engaging that we can't help but fall for them

A rare thing: a stoner comedy where being stoned isn't a requirement to enjoying it.

One might suggest audience members indulge in a little recreational activity before entering the theatre but I'm not sure that will increase your laugh intake all that much. So I'll advise you to just say "maybe."

Philadelphia Weekly

A warm and fuzzy sendup of Reagan-era action-film iconography, it's sort of like what might happen if Cheech and Chong played Tango and Cash.

Pineapple Express is a mess, but a wonderful one. It's not the ultimate movie about pot that I was expecting, instead it's a great ordinary-man action movie.

Tied together by a performance from Franco that has the misfortune of being familiar and human in the middle of a lot of low-aspiring blarney.

Despite the "smoking pot" refrain, PE finds a way to charm. These guys really seem to enjoy each others' company and are happy to welcome you into their little group.

... if you are going to have a couple of dumb asses running around like total idiots, you could do a lot worse than Rogen and Franco.

The guns-blazing, body-count-mounting final act is a wasted opportunity -- and not in a good wasted way.
