Given that cast, crew and audience were and will be baked throughout, Pineapple Express just about earns itself a pass.

This is possibly the first time a blackened, burnt corpse is played for laughs. It all flows by like so much sugar water.

In the end, that feel-good factor overrides occasional moments of discomfort.

The movie runs red with both blood and cherry Slushies ... There's also more male affection on display here than, well, since 'Superbad' and that cowboy movie that people still complain to me about.

Enjoyable, but probably only as funny as it thinks it is if you're as high as Judd Apatow's salary.

I'm happy anyway to see that Green can wield his considerable skill in a completely different form, with the result being such a fun movie.

Definitely can not be compared to Superbad or Knocked Up, but another secure comedy brought to use by both Seth Rogen and Judd Apatow.

More an inconsistent collection of gags and skits than a cohesive feature, but the highs are funny and the lows hard to get worked up about, so we still walk away smiling.

Pineapple Express is a highly entertaining, offbeat comedy-thriller that has Future Cult Movie written all over it. Recommended.

This is a Class A comedy about Class B drugs. It has a Rizla-thin plot but Camberwell-carrot sized laughs.

Pineapple Express descends from patchy comedy to decidedly daft action send-up.

The Freaks And Geeks boys prove that weedy action men are where it's at. Pineapple Express sometimes zones out but mostly blows minds and inspires some delirious giggles. Like the titular grass, really.

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.

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.
