By Jeff Vice Deseret News PINEAPPLE EXPRESS -- ** 1/2 -- Seth Rogen, James Franco; rated R (violence, drugs, profanity, gore, vulgarity, torture, slurs); Century Sandy and South Salt Lake; Cinemark Jordan Landing; Megaplex District, Gateway and Jordan Commons. If another, earlier stoner-culture comedy hadn't beaten it to the punch, "Pineapple Express" could have easily -- and perhaps more accurately -- been titled "Half Baked." The film tries to fuse elements from the "Harold &...

By Craig D. Lindsey, The News & Observer, Raleigh, N.C. Aug. 6--For a movie where the gags are mostly delivered through a waft of weed smoke, and blood and bullets are just as liberally sprayed throughout, "Pineapple Express" has to be the most emo action-comedy I've ever seen. I kept expecting tunes from Sunny Day Real Estate and Dashboard Confessional to start playing during the shootouts. "Express" -- also known as this week's Judd Apatow movie -- works on a more highly sensitive...

By Michael Machosky, The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review Aug. 6--The stoner flick has been making a comeback lately for some reason -- or just finally got off the couch, which is more likely. "Pineapple Express" is the rare such film that's moderately entertaining to the non-high population -- and appears to be made by people who were in full possession of all their faculties. That's not saying much, though. The comic firepower behind this meandering movie is impressive -- from the prolific...

By Bob Strauss "Pineapple Express" captures the buzzy stupidity of chronic marijuana use better than any other comedy I've seen. And it gets the unlikely friendships that grow out of the buying and selling of pot remarkably right. Don't ask me how I know. Just rest assured that, as you're laughing your head off at this stoner comedy, it's all grounded in some pretty well-observed behavior. And that's even when it's satirizing drug buddy movie conventions and taking more exaggerated swipes...

By Andrew Dansby, Houston Chronicle Aug. 6--Seth Rogen won High Times magazine's Stony Award in 2007 for his work in the pothead romcom Knocked Up. He seems a likely nominee again for the award, which is given to the stoner of the year, for Pineapple Express, a film that puts Rogen on the stoner-movie equivalent of Marlon Brando's Oscar-nominated drama run in the 1950s. Those who go back with Rogen to his start on TV's Freaks and Geeks, where he played an implied stoner, aren't surprised...

By Daniel Neman, Richmond Times-Dispatch, Va. Aug. 6--The new stoner comedy "Pineapple Express" is endless, simply endless. Hey, maybe it could borrow one of those spare endings left over from "The Dark Knight." It wouldn't be a problem if the movie were actually funny, but it is most emphatically not. Which is sadly just what we have come to expect from the Judd Apatow comedy assembly line. Apatow has had a hand in releasing eight movies in 14 months -- four this summer alone. He is...

By Gary Thompson, Philadelphia Daily News Aug. 6--I TALKED to a director the other day who was a bit miffed that I referred to his movie as being under "the Apatow umbrella." No offense intended. I was merely noting that as a producer, Judd Apatow has a knack for assembling diverse talent in a way that generates comedies of a consistent tone, and there's no better example of this than the pothead laugher "Pineapple Express." It's directed by David Gordon Green, an indie auteur noted for...

By Susan Wloszczyna, USA TODAY T he superheroes have flown. Send in the clowns. Sure, there have been a few jokers out there this summer besides the one in The Dark Knight. But with all the flashy comic-book derring-do at the multiplex, they've been easy to overlook. But Steve Carell, Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell have all offered up cinematic frivolity with varying degrees of success. However, their tried-and-true tomfoolery will soon seem as quaint as...
