Movie Review by Jessica Film Junkie
August 17th, 2008

Rogen The Action Star

Favorite Movie Quote: "It's almost a shame to smoke it. It's like killing a unicorn...with, like, a bomb."

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg have taken upon themselves to reinvent both the stoner movie and the classic action movie at the same time. 'Pineapple Express' is the tale of two losers (Rogen and James Franco, in a complete reinvention of type) who get mixed up in a drug war and must escape death, while also just getting really high all the time.

The plot is confused and strange, but wonderful at the same time. We have no idea what the bad guys motivations are or why there is a war going on, but who cares? The best thing about this movie is seeing Rogen and Franco spar as they used to in the days of my beloved 'Freaks and Geeks'. Strangely enough, in the world of 'Pineapple Express', Rogen is the together one, Rogen is the one who makes the good decisions, and ultimately, Rogen makes the movie. Any doubts about his post-'Knocked Up' bankability should be quashed by his great work here.

The supporting standout of the film is Danny McBride as Red, Franco's supplier. His unstated but implied homosexuality does not own his character, but rather adds to the odd complexity of his personality. McBride is one to watch, just as Rogen was in 'The 40-Year Old Virgin'.

All in all, this is a fun, fast and explosive joint about friendship, about brotherhood and about the companionship inherent to pot culture.
