      It’s hard to find a good comedy nowadays. Look at it this way, Adam Sandler hasn’t made anything remotely funny since 50 First Dates, that

      just goes to show you how low we have gone. Pineapple Express is an original and hilarious comedy that revolves around the illegal drug business. The film was conjured up by Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen (who also plays one of the main characters) who also gave us Knocked Up and Superbad.

      Rogen plays Dale Denton, a young process server who delivers subpoenas to clients for a law firm and happens to have a girlfriend who is still in high school. While delivering a subpoena to a drug lord Ted Jones (played by Gary Cole), Dale bares witness to a murder executed by Jones and his girlfriend Carol Brazier (Rosie Perez), a corrupt female cop. Dale bails the scene, leaving his joint roach behind in panic. Brazier and Jones, however,

      are able to identify the joint’s rare strain of marijuana (you guessed it… Pineapple Express). They trace the dots back to Saul Silver (James Franco) who is Dale’s dealer. The two villains send their two henchmen, Budlofsky (Kevin Corrigan) and Matheson (Craig Robinson), after Saul and Dale who are now on a run for their lives.

      The comedic antics and humor in this film are very

      ripe and it uses the source material (the drugs) very creatively. Seth Rogen and James Franco display excellent performance chemistry when put together here. It’s also nice to see James Franco do something outside of the Spider-Man films, this movie is one that shows how talented he is. Overall, Pineapple Express is another comedic staple alongside Knocked Up, Superbad, and The 40 Year Old Virgin.
