Unfortunately, director David Gordon Green is never able to sustain any comic momentum... Don't get me wrong, "Express" is still good enough that I left entertained -- just not nearly as much as I hoped I would.

Cheech and Chong have found new heirs apparent in the form of Saul and Dale, in a film destined to be a new stoner classic.

I admit I enjoyed Pineapple Express more than I expected.

David Gordon Green seems to have used this template as some sort of experiment... Green's method is like a stone-cold killer in a John Woo movie: He makes us laugh, then immediately shoots us in the face.

High-ly recommended.

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.
December 19, 2008
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.

No sooner did the woeful Step Brothers suggest Judd Apatow's comedy empire was starting to spread itself thinner than a banana skin under an anvil, he strikes back with this almost-classic.
September 12, 2008
This is a Class A comedy about Class B drugs. It has a Rizla-thin plot but Camberwell-carrot sized laughs.
September 12, 2008
Pineapple Express descends from patchy comedy to decidedly daft action send-up.
September 12, 2008
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.
September 12, 2008
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.
