Two men end up on the run from hitmen and a corrupt police officer after witnessing a murder when trying to buy drugs.
I never really fancied this when it was released in the cinema last year, but after hearing a lot of mixed things about it (and an ever growing fondness of James Franco). I decided to give it ago and watch “Pineapple Express” and it is by no means the best comedy movie I have ever seen. But it did get me laughing at certain points mainly because of how random a lot of it was. Yes, it is mainly a movie based on weed . . . or the problems that occured all because of the weed known as pineapple express.
I really thought James Franco was just fantastic in this movie, he really is becoming an actor of whom I cannot wait to watch more of his movies. The older ones I have missed out on and the ones which will be released in the near future. I just think he is really going to be just fantastic in a few years as he is showing that potential to do different things now.
I am still not in the Seth Rogan fan club, as in nearly every movie I have seen him in he plays the same type of character. Maybe he is just like this in real life? I would really like to see him do a different type of character just to see if my opinion of him can be changed.
I liked the change in pace of the story, going from comedy to thriller/action which worked pretty well. But I do think James Franco influenced my liking of this movie. I really could just sit and watch him all day, and I am not the biggest fan of long hair on a man but would let him get away with it.
Ok, I must apologise that this has turned into more of a James Franco love in rather than a review of this film.
