Ahhh, the pot movie. The stoner flick. Such a well-traversed and easily discounted genre. The luxury of these features is that the expectations are never very high. Even for comedy, the writers/producers/directors of a movie about weed are generally held to a pretty light standard. There’s a built in audience and that audience isn’t always the most discerning. Nonetheless, Pineapple Express strives to be among those few standouts of the genre. Up in Smoke, Dazed and Confused, Friday, Harold and Kumar, and Pineapple Express? Sure, why not.
