Probably not, but Pineapple Express is the best of them, and it could be the year's best comedy, full stop. It still has the semi- improvised, man-childish banter you'd expect from the Judd Squad; the difference is...

All Seth Rogen really wanted when he came to Hollywood was to make a movie with Kevin Smith . His dream came true, and more: Rogen got to make a dirty movie with Smith. Rogen stars with Elizabeth Banks in Smith's "Zack and Miri Make a Porno," a romantic comedy with a whole lot of skin showing. The 26-year-old actor recalled a meeting nearly a decade ago with a prospective agent who asked what his career goals were. That's when he confessed his desire to work with Smith, whose profanity-...

By Siobhan Synnot PINEAPPLE EXPRESS (15) ** Director: David Gordon Green Running time: 111 minutes BE PREPARED to revisit many of the most recognisable House of Judd Apatow obsessions previously exhibited in Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Don't Mess With The Zohan, Knocked Up and Superbad - such as young men who display all the smarts of a bear with its head stuck in a honey pot, inventive swearing, the romantic disparity between a chunky, committed couch potato and some hyper, sharp-...

Actor and writer Seth Rogen says a scene in his drug-themed Hollywood comedy "Pineapple Express" is being changed before its British release. The film, which was a hit in the United States this summer, is to open in England Sept. 12. In it, Rogen plays a marijuana-smoking process server who goes on the lam with his pot dealer, played by James Franco, after witnessing a murder. "We had to remove stuff from the movie to get the rating that we needed. We're actually more responsible in the...

By GRANT LAUCHLAN ANOTHER week and another comedy from Hollywood golden boy Judd Apatow. If he were making pop music, he'd be the movie equivalent of Stock, Aitken and Waterman. Since last summer's smash hit Knocked Up, he's released six movies, with another, Pineapple Express, due for release next month. But with quantity are we getting quality? Well if Step Brothers is anything to go by, then yes, and no. Apatow's movies are irreverent and absurd, but oddly, considering how gross...

By Donna Freydkin NEW YORK -- Danny McBride, who made his leading man film debut in a little-seen 2006 tae-kwon-do flick, is packing a powerful punch in theaters this summer. "He's the guy everyone will be talking about. That guy is unstoppable," says comedian Bill Hader, one of McBride's co-stars in Tropic Thunder. The husky funnyman, 31, has earned major notices for his back-to-back performances in this summer's big-ticket comedies: Pineapple Express, with McBride as the fickle,...

Canadian actor and scribe Seth Rogen says he is working hard to prepare for his upcoming role in "The Green Hornet." "I hear he's been working out (to play the superhero,)" Rogen's "Pineapple Express" co-star James Franco told reporters in New York recently. "I keep telling him. He doesn't believe me, though," Rogen, sitting beside him, said with a laugh. "It's so unnecessary, though, because they'll just give you a muscle suit," added Franco, who co-starred in the three recent...

By Syantani Chatterjee He played tragic actor James Dean and a villain and friend in "Spider-Man 3," but actor James Franco says he's always loved making people laugh, which is what he hopes his new movie "Pineapple Express" will do. The marijuana-fueled action film which debuted Wednesday, marks a comeback to comedy for Franco, after more serious roles in 2007 war drama "In the Valley of Elah" and 2006 tragic romance "Tristan & Isolde." Well before those roles, Franco, 30, caught...
