#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – Lazy court-process clerk and stoner Dale Denton has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver: to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. But when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city’s most dangerous drug lord, he panics and dumps his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene. Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him–and it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they’re not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia: incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both. All aboard the Pineapple Express.
Plot: A stoner and his dealer are forced to go on the run from the police after the pothead witnesses a cop commit a murder.

When it comes to comedy, I’m like a patchwork. My favourite kind is the one I grew up with which is the Looney Tunes cartoons. I can watch them over and over again, and I will always laugh. I also love dark British humour, slapstick, and wait for it…. American.
American humour (especially these days) gets derided, most often due to it being “dumbed down” so the collegiate set can understand it, often using toilet humour as its best punchline. I somewhat disagree, I say that the humour people use between themselves is what drives movies made by Judd Apatow & co.
Take Pineapple Express for example, this movie seems on some level to be fairly realistic. I use that term very loosely, because of course many things that happen in this film, could, and should never happen. Anyhow, the comedy, the dialogue, the fight sequences, and other interactions between the characters are the reasons I think make it feel this way.
The fight sequences aren’t ones that I could say seem all that choreographed, of course there are “X” spots they need to hit, but for the most part I think it is done on the fly, or like much of the comedy, improvised.
Pineapple Express follows the story of a process server Dale Denton (Rogen), & his pot dealer Saul Silver (Franco), as they avoid henchmen (Robinson & Corrigan) of Ted Jones (Cole), Marijuana kingpin of L.A. after Dale witnesses a murder Ted commits. With a corrupt cop on the take (Perez) also on the hunt, staying alive for the buyer & supplier turned stoner buddies becomes an adventure of friendship as well as appreciation of the relationships built by people in this lifestyle.
The name Pineapple Express comes from the name of the variety of weed Saul introduces to Dale.
I enjoy this movie because of the old fashioned approach taken to deliver the laughs and the story, and the characters feel very relatable to almost anyone on some level.
Decent watch, probably won’t watch it again, but can recommend.
I’ll be upfront, while it’s not really for me, I think most people will enjoy this movie, if for nothing else, then the idiot banter.
Franco’s a good actor, but sometimes he and Seth put too much of themselves in the movie, and it gets worse when they’re together on screen. This basically looks like they just took what they do hanging out on a Friday sometimes and put it on screen in places, basically anytime the action dies down and they start to lean into the lull.
The first story that gets interrupted by the main plot, could easily have it’s own movie, romantic comedy or drama: an older man, legitimately and legally dating a high school girl has a LOT of situations to it, and has amazing potential. Once it gets interrupted by the “on the lamb” trope, I would have honestly thought it would disappear as it would in most movies, or at worst, she would show up looking for him or to get something from his place and get abducted.
The re-return to the original story line is almost funny enough itself in concept, but in actuality I just end up waiting to get back to the movie, and they do things like that throughout the entire movie.
It is conceivable when things are happening to the main characters that derail them, but when they’re actively derailing themselves, then it just gets sad. You start to question things that you shouldn’t, and it’s not even because they’re high, as they directly have a conversation about how the weed is really bad for them, given everything that is happening.
I’m not a fan of drug humor, or abuse humor (usually), and everything that isn’t that is so ridiculous that it’s hard to like.
There are good jokes woven in here, but a lot of this is “I wanted to make a movie with my buddy while we act like idiots”, and as a fan of Kevin Smith, I respect that, but that should put you in the frame of mind that this isn’t a top tier movie, and Kevin Smith writes better dialogue.
Pineapple Express (2008)
*** (out of 4)
A pothead (Seth Rogan) and his dimwitted dealer (James Franco) hit the road after witnessing a cop (Rosie Perez) murder a man. Pretty soon the two are trying to get away from the cop as well as two drug lords in the middle of a war. As far as pot comedies goes this one here is nearly the best the small genre has to offer. I’m sure Cheech and Chong would give this thing two bongs up as it does contain plenty of laughs but I couldn’t help but feel it had the same shortcomings as other Judd Apatow movies. That one issue with this film, as well as the others, is that it runs too long for its own good. Clocking in a nearly two-hours I couldn’t help but feel that the film could have lost thirty-minutes and not much would have been missed. This is especially true during the ending shoot out, which just keeps going and going. Outside of that issue this film contains some great big laughs with most of them coming in the form of pot jokes and stuff dealing with stoners. Seth Rogan turns in another winning performance as he gains plenty of laughs from his older guy. James Franco is the real jewel in the film as he’s dead-on perfect as the drug dealing loser who just sits around his house getting high, selling pot and watching reruns on television. Franco gets the look down just right but his facial gestures and voice tone perfectly capture that pot head many of us have met in our lives. I thought Perez was pretty much wasted in a thankless role that didn’t offer her too much to do. Ed Begley, Jr. has a funny bit as Rogan’s girlfriend’s father. The screenplay really doesn’t offer us any jokes we haven’t seen countless times before and in many ways there’s not an original idea here but that doesn’t really matter because the performances are what makes the movie funny.
A Couple Of Stoners Turn Rambo
Don’t look for anything to terribly sophisticated in Pineapple Express. In fact the nuggets of humor to be mined here are few and far between.
Maybe I’m old fashioned, but the notion of a minor league drug dealer and his number one customer as heroes is just a bit bizarre for my taste. But that’s what happens when Seth Rogen after making a purchase of some really primo grass called Pineapple Express, just fresh on the market, he sees a murder committed by a big drug lord, Gary Cole and his girlfriend, policewoman Rosie Perez.
That telltale roach he left behind leads Cole and Perez to dealer James Franco and they spend the rest of the film running for their lives. Until the very end when they turn Rambo and all the drug traffickers in two gangs get dealt with severely.
And I certainly don’t see anything remotely humorous in these two lugnuts looking for traveling money, selling some of this really good marijuana to school kids.
But what do I know and I reached maturity in the Sixties.
