Ride high on the Pineapple Express, the outrageously hysterical blockbuster from Judd Apatow, the director and screenwriter of Knocked Up. A lazy stoner (Seth Rogen) is the sole witness to a murder by an evil drug lord (Gary Cole) and a corrupt cop (Rosie Perez). Marked for death, he runs for his life, dragging his dazed dealer (James Franco) and his supplier (Danny McBride) with him on a hilarious pot-fueled adventure. Directed by David Gordon Green. Screenplay by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Both funny and scatter shot, this loose-knit action/buddy/stoner comedy bridges genres and keeps a steady tempo of low ball laughs.

Common Sense Says
Violent stoner comedy is funny, but NOT for kids.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that, from the opening scene, this "hard R" comedy -- which teens will want to see thanks to the presence of Knocked Up star Seth Rogen -- is suffused in a heavy cloud of marijuana smoke. One of the lead characters is a pot dealer, and the other smokes it habitually; pot is also sold to schoolchildren. There's also lots more violence than in most comedies from producer Judd Apatow, as well as constant strong language (including "f--k," and "s--t"). All of that said, one character does come to regret and reject his pot use, and dope-dealing higher-ups are portrayed as brutal, vicious criminals and murderers.
