One Sentence: There are no trains or pineapples in this movie. 

I can tell the world around me is getting tired of seeing the quote "From the guys who brought you Superbad."  You can change Superbad with 40 Year Old Virgin, Knocked Up or any of the others.  They are getting wary of Apatow films and I think are getting tired of Seth Rogan, that is the general feel I am getting from the world around me.  I however am not getting tired of them, as long as the movies are funny, rated R and original, I say keep the hits on coming, it's better than Indiana Jones 13, Cyborg Jones Vs The Terminator. © 2008

Pineapple Express is not just a comedy it's an stoner/action/comedy, and while that sounds like a lot to fit in, if it is done sucessfully I think it could work.  Luckily they had James Franco of Green Goblin fame to show up and acted stoned for 2 hours.  He was quite funny, and while Seth also was funny, he played the straight man in Pineapple and allowed James to make the movie.  Which again, is a stoner/action/comedy.  I am repeating this for the stoners, so they get that there is quite a bit of blood in this movie.  Don't want you to freak out in the theater.

It delivers on everythign I think anyone going to see this movie is hoping for.  Stoner jokes, normal jokes, and some ok action.  The action sort of played out like a 80's cop movie, and was comical and not that realistic.  While I was entertained throughout the whole movie and was solidly laughing out loud, I am not glowing about this movie like I was Sarah Marshall.  This movie is funny, and I say is worth checking out, but if I was going to pick watching The Olympics Opening Ceremony or Pineapple Express on Friday night I would pick the Olympics.
