Has anyone seen the movie Pineapple Express yet?

I saw it last week and it was a pretty funny movie. The director is David Gordan Green, the writers: Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The release date was August sixth, the budget was twenty-five million dollars and so far the gross revenue has been a little more than forty-five million dollars. The same producers and writers made the film Superbad and Knocked Up, so I thought that Pineapple Express would be more comedic but it's actually really action-packed. So far the film has received one Golden Trailer nomination for Best 2008 comedy. It's about how a stoner and his drug dealer are forced to go on the run from the police and a ruthless drug lord after the stoner witness a cop and the drug lord commit a murder. Seth Rogen plays the stoner Dale Denton, his performance was okay; it would of been better if it wasn't the same as in Knocked Up. James Franco plays Dale’s drug dealer Saul Silver. It was really surprising seeing Franco in a comedy like this, usually he plays a more serious character and in a more dramatic movie. I think he did a really good job with his role too; it was really another side of his acting skills.
Producer Judd Apatow, explained that the source of inspiration for Pineapple Express was from Brad Pitt’s character in True Romance (1993), a stoner named Floyd. Apatow said, “it would be funny to make a movie in which you follow that character out of his apartment and watch him get chased by bad guys.” Overall, the movie is a little slow in the beginning but it picks up, has some really funny parts and ends as a modern stoner movie. Go see it for your self!

It was great. My sides hurt when it was done. Stand out moments were the guy who just wouldnt die and Dales intentionally ridiculous wire-fu jump.

Watched it last night. Definately the funniest movie I've seen this year and I have to agree James Franco really proves his range as an actor in this film.
