    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    It's a funny, mostly harmless and entertaining film with a bad case of dry mouth. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    The laughs -- mostly crude, profane and drug-addled -- are almost non-stop. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The movie's too long - and the violence and mayhem are unexpectedly harsh and heavy - but Franco's inspired, looped performance is right up there in the annals of reefer filmdom with Jeff Bridges' the Dude in "The Big Lebowski." show more

    When "Pineapple" goes from ganja to genre, it sours. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    It's with that action aspect that Pineapple Express differs from Apatow's previous production output, and though, the words "taut" and "pulse-pounding" would never apply, the giddily over-the-top fight sequences, choreographed by veteran stunt coordinator Gary Hymes, handily compensate for the lag time. show more

    Probably the most artful of the Apatow Factory comedies so far, but that's not to suggest it doesn't take being sweetly dumb just as seriously as the rest. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It's a quality movie even if the material is unworthy of the treatment. As a result, yes, it's a druggie comedy that made me laugh. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Yes, Pineapple Express is exceedingly crude, but it's never mean or lewd, and for all the drugs and gore in it, the movie is also strangely, unrelentingly sweet, even when its characters are bleeding to death. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    Frequently hilarious, occasionally sweet and often graphically violent, Pineapple Express may not be the greatest stoner movie ever made, but it will do perfectly well until we get another hit of Harold and Kumar. show more

    Just flat out good. I don't really think you have to be a pothead to know what everything is about refering to Drizzyxx. I hate stoners like you. Your the reason cannibus is illegal. Get over your self dumbass. This movie is exciting, lots of anticipation. Overall one of the funniest comidies since Black Sheep or Bio-Dome. Have watched it at least 20 times lol kind of pathetic i know. I think it's just that good tho.

    This movie made me laugh several times. It is funny and very amusing. The reason it is R is because they say the F word every minute. I defiantly recommend seeing this movie. The cast is perfect for their roles and this is defiantly one of the best movies of the year.

    Horrible!! I recently saw the movie and just had to log on to see what others thought. I can't believe there are such good reviews on here for such a boring movie with a poorly thought out plot. Superbad and Knocked up were funny but this was a complete waste of time. Too many unnecessary gay references. Not funnY!

    Not a good movie, boring throughout and really was just stupid. There were some funny parts but I wouldn't watch it again.
