Pineapple Express (2008)

()

Action, Comedy, Crime |

Pineapple Express is a American buddy stoner action comedy film directed by David Gordon Green, written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg and starring Rogen and James Franco. The plot centers on a process server and his marijuana dealer as they are forced to flee from hitmen and a corrupt police officer after witnessing them commit a murder. Producer Judd Apatow, who previously worked with Rogen and Goldberg on Knocked Up and Superbad, assisted in developing the story.

Columbia Pictures released the film on August 6, 2008, and it grossed $102 million worldwide on a $26 million budget. The film received generally positive reviews from critics and has since developed a cult following. Franco was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for his performance.

In 1937, a soldier in a military facility is being observed through a two-way mirror smoking marijuana and revealing in his euphoria what he hates about the army. A high-ranking officer closes the project and deems marijuana illegal.

Seventy years later in 2007, Dale Denton, a process server visits his drug dealer, Saul Silver, to buy marijuana. Saul says he may know Dale’s next customer, Ted Jones. At Ted’s house Dale witnesses Ted and a police officer, Carol Brazier, shoot a man dead. While fleeing, Dale leaves his roach containing Pineapple Express, a rare strain of marijuana. Ted identifies the strain and sends his henchmen Budlofsky and Matheson to Red, a dealer who tells them about Saul.
