Pineapple Express Synopsis


Next summer, the guys who brought you Superbad reunite for the action-comedy Pineapple Express. Lazy stoner Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver (James Franco): 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 (Rosie Perez) and the city's most dangerous drug lord (Gary Cole), 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.



The movie I’m most excited about this year isn’t Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. It’s Indy, I get it, he’s awesome. But even more awesome is the re-teaming of former Freaks and Geeks buddies James Franco and Seth Rogen for a wild stoner action movie written co-written by Rogen and produced by Judd Apatow. It’s called Pineapple Express… and it looks superbadass.

The early reviews on this thing have been nothing short of phenomenal. Meanwhile producer Judd Apatow and his ever growing posse of protégés are on the kind of run that hasn’t been seen since the likes of Pixar. Assuming of course you ignore the bad reviews of Drillbit Taylor and the dismal box office take of Walk Hard. Whoops. Hey, American audiences are fickle, but Apatow and everyone he’s surrounded himself with are on the verge of becoming comedy gods.

Writing partners Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have already proven their mettle, as the minds behind last year’s breakout hit Superbad. And as an actor, well let’s face it, Rogen should have been an Oscar contender for Knocked Up. Ok, maybe Golden Globe frontrunner is more reasonable. The guy should have gotten something for putting up with Katherine Heigl.

The film’s director on the other hand, is everything that Rogen, Apatow, and the rest of the frat pack are not. David Gordon Green is a director of serious independent dramas, and not the sort you’d expect to find helming a wild, action filled, comedy. In a recent interview with Film Monthly Green explained his involvement as part of Judd Apatow’s unending pursuit to bring something distinctive and unique to each of his films. Green says, “they're looking outside the box for directors that can bring something to it, to do something interesting and nonconventional, and push the envelope.” Green is talented, and bringing him together with other talented people to do something unique and new is without a doubt exciting.

The trailers are killer, the cast is top notch, and Pineapple Express has the makings of one of the year’s most explosive comedies. Bring it on boys, we can’t wait to toke up on what you’re offering.

April Fools! OK, you probably didn't fall for it, since we're not cruel enough to go with their joke in our headline, but it's fun to pretend for at least a little while that this really is the low-budget sequel to Pineapple Express that James Franco, Seth Rogen, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson made in their house, somehow stealing the original costumes from the Sony props department and convincing David Gordon Green to sign off on it

The idea for a sequel for the 2008 comedy Pineapple Express has been floating around for quite a while. In fact, nearly a year ago, we spoke writer Evan Goldberg about the potential project and at the time, he sounded hesitant at best about the idea of a second installment to the comedy. However, Seth Rogen spoke about the possible sequel more recently and from the sound of it, he’s into the idea of doing one.

Ask potheads which movie character they’d most like to get high with and at least half the time you’ll hear Cheech and Chong or Jeffrey “The Dude” Lebowski. On the one hand, it makes sense given they’ve been long exalted as great advocates for the weed cause, but on the other hand, it makes no goddamn sense whatsoever.
