This is a baggy, pointless, tiresome film, which is also messy, puerile, cack-handedly gruesome and plain unfunny.

The party got out of hand towards the end, and we probably should have booked out before we got too tired.

You would have to smoke a great deal of the stuff to make Pineapple Express seem like a good movie, although from the assorted giggles at the Rio Theatre, the audience was ripped and receptive.

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.

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

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

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.
September 12, 2008
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.
September 12, 2008
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.
September 12, 2008
Pineapple Express has its fair share of laughs, but it's a fundamentally heartless and unlovable minor work from Team Apatow.
September 12, 2008
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.

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.
August 14, 2008
The guns-blazing, body-count-mounting final act is a wasted opportunity -- and not in a good wasted way.
August 13, 2008
Movie about the high life provides low level of entertainment
August 13, 2008
Long on concept and short on most everything else except kinetic energy.
