Pineapple Express Movie Review - Seth Rogan James Franco

Pineapple Express is a slightly more polished, and I use the the term "polished" very liberally, version of Cheech and Chong.

There is non stop illegal substance abuse through out the film as a heavy smoking process server (Rogan) and his drug dealer (Franco) become witnesses to a murder and, of course, the murders want to kill them.

The film is really funny if you like Seth Rogan-style films.  Rogan is the master when playing bumbling, in-over-his-head, unambitious man roles and carries the film.

What makes Pineapple Express differ from other Rogan films  is how violent it can be at times.  There is a good deal of shooting and blood that is all handled in a matter of fact, comic manner (think Matt Damon in Dogma, only not nearly that dark.)

If you like 1) Rogan's style 2) buddy films like Dumb and Dumber 3) plus a touch of Dogma, you'll like Pineapple Express.
