On their way to becoming self-actualized adults, a duo of delinquent dudes find themselves stymied by unfortunate habits. But when stuck-in-neutral process server Dale Denton (Rogen) inadvertently witnesses a drug-related murder, he and his bud Saul (Franco) find that sometimes the motivation you need to make something of your life is a mob of fugitives hunting you down.
This is a really dumb film that I’m sure will become a cult classic with some of the young crowd. The entire film is centered on two characters that smoke dope all the time and then find themselves getting into trouble. Duh! I could not relate to this type of humor but there must have been some folks in the audience who could because they were laughing pretty hard at times.
“Pineapple Express” is an over-the-top violent, vulgar film that is not very entertaining. I pretty much lost track of the amount of obscenities and profanities because they are continuous throughout the film. Certainly families will want to “pick” something other than “Pineapple” this week at the theaters.
