Your love of it will largely depend on how funny you find a movie with 85 percent of the jokes based on smoking weed. For the rest of you a lot of it is going to feel very silly, crammed with potty humor and overly long for such a simple subject matter.

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.

Pineapple Express is good for a few laughs but little more; it's low-grade Apatow--I think they used to call it dirt weed.

Pretty bad

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 funny, but it's not outrageously funny. Such material needs to be outrageously funny to succeed.

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

Apatow's former confidence about not underestimating the intelligence of his audiences seems to have largely disappeared.

The first half-hour floats by on a cloud of mildly funny lines ("couscous - the food so nice they named it twice"), but then slumps into a derivative action caper that's weirdly and unappealingly reminiscent of Eighties dross like Beverly Hills Cop.

The theoretically fail-safe team of the writer/actor Seth Rogen and co-writer/ producer Judd Apatow - the Knocked Up duo - deliver a funnybone- clobbering spree with more energy than wit.

The Sun (UK)
September 12, 2008
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5

Though there are funny one-liners early on, the script becomes increasingly lazy, while the violence which takes over the second half feels as if it belongs to a different picture.
