Pineapple Express (David Gordon Green, 2008)

pineapple-express1

At long last, the world takes its revenge on Rosie Perez for her performance in Do the Right Thing

But anyway, this was absolutely hysterical. A great mix between the typically nutty/witty dialogue you’d expect from an Apatow production and just ridiculous over-the-topness that’s an homage to old, shitty action-fests, great chemistry between Rogen and Franco (Rogen can’t stop himself from being his stupidly over-the-top annoying self here and there, but that’s rare – these guys are great together), and enough of David Gordon Green’s signature great photography and lighting to keep the snobs at bay. And whaddya know, a plot with more labyrinthine twists ‘n turns and misunderstandings between opposing characters than the likes of Blood Simple! (or Dumb and Dumber…) Jolly good fun

8/10
