Happy Birthday Carolyn!!!!

 movie coverI'd rather be watching TV![IMDB link] [Netflix link] The title really turned me off, until I realized what it was about and who was involved… Then changed my mind.

HAIKU REVIEW: Pineapple Express:
what a stupid fucking name…
But now it makes sense.

PEOPLE: Seth Rogan. James Franco. Gary Cole. Rosie Perez (?!). Written by Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, who wrote Superbad.

QUIRKS: A stoner action movie. Dude, wait… What?

The first marijuana themed comedy to gross over $100 million worldwide.

POLITICS: There is often no way to contain police corruption, due to the power police have. That’s bad.

BAD STUFF: Since this was a combo pot/comedy movie and action movie, it fails to be a super comedy OR a super action movie. Instead, we get a really good (not quite super) movie that happens to be both. It’s still really funny!

Of course — it might have had more action if their budget hadn’t been cut in HALF because of the drug-related content. Fucking studios.

CONCLUSION: 4/5 stars on Netflix, 8/10 on IMDB, tho I’d probably give it more like a 7.5 if I could.

RECOMMENDATION: If you like feelgood action movies, or Rogan/Goldberg movies like Superbad — you will like this. It’s full of good quotes, at the very least.

MOVIE QUOTE:
Saul: This is like if that Blue Oyster shit met that African Kush I had – and they had a baby. And then, meanwhile, that crazy Northern Light stuff I had and the Super Red Espresso Snowflake met and had a baby. And by some miracle, those two babies met and fucked – this would the shit that they birthed.
Dale Denton: [smells the marijuana] Wow. This is the product of baby fucking.

FRIENDS’ RATINGS: Ian and Glen really liked it.

Mood: i need to pee
Music: Nine Inch Nails – Gone Still
