Pineapple Express (2008)

I recently caught “Pineapple Express”. I have to preface this by saying I hate stoner comedies. They are not funny to me. I watched “Half-Baked” and “Bongwater” and I don’t find those kinds of movies funny.

Like some Apatow movies that he directs or produces—only produced this, the characters would get high. Those times I think it’s funny like “40 Year Old Virgin” or “Knocked Up.” It lost me here.

“Pineapple Express” is about stoner process server, Dale Denton. Dale witnesses a drug deal gone wrong when Gary Cole and Rosie Perez characters kill a guy. A domino effect happens. Hilarity ensues. I thought that I was in a shoot ‘em up movie for awhile. What’s up with that?
James Franco plays the pot dealer, Saul. He was good in this movie. Better than Seth Rogen.

The beginning of the movie needed to be cut out. I know that Seth Rogen co-wrote this film. I didn’t find it funny at all.

“Pineapple Express” comes from the brand of powerful ganja from Hawaii. I would rather watch “Knocked Up” again then this movie.
