DailyView: Day 357, Movie 509
It is 4/20. In honor of the day, I watched Pineapple Express.
I have never been a fan of stoner comedies so I have not watched many of them.
Pineapple Express starred Seth Rogan and James Franco. Rogan, while smoking the new marijuana called Pineapple Express , witnessed a murder involving a police officer(Rosie Perez) and a drug lord (Gary Cole). Going on the run from them, Rogan and Franco get involved in all kinds of chaos.
There were some funny bits in the movie, but this was very much a Seth Rogan movie. It was loud, people were all yelling at the same time so it was hard to listen to, and more annoying than entertaining.
The story was ridiculous, which I believe was part of the charm. The situations were over-the-top. There were some parts that were funny, but it really stretched credibility.
The crazy violence of the second half of the movie seemed fairly out of place to the buddy comedy from the first half.
Like most stoner movies, I am not a fan.
