Pineapple Express: Film #97 of Film 365

Sunday 4th December 2011

Director: David Gordon Green
Year: 2008
Stars: Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, Kevin Corrigan, Craig Robinson, Gary Cole, Rosie Perez

I wasn't sure whether I was going to enjoy this or not, but I thought I would give it a try. I'd heard good things about it, but I was a little bit cautious when the credits came up stating it was a Judd Apatow movie. I've been stung by that before.

There's no denying that Pineapple Express is an odd movie - but for the most part, I quite enjoyed it. Dale Denton (Rogen) witnesses a murder, and he and his mate (Saul Silver, played by Franco) go out of their way not to get caught. The comedy is often dark, but for me that made it funnier. It does have its inane moments, but for the most part it's a fun movie with some laugh-out-loud moments.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
