I had pretty high hopes going into this and I must say my expectations were almost met. I say almost because there were some slow moments and most of the action stuff wasn't that great. However, James Franco was by far the best part of the movie. Heath Ledger my ass, Franco nailed this shit. He plays the lovable drug dealer role to the T. Seriously though, how well can I possibly review this movie? I was fucking lit. If you buy it for what it is you won't be disappointed. It's essentially a buddy chick flick if that makes any sense. I will say Superbad is probably my favorite of all the Apatow flicks to date so take that for what it's worth. But this is definitely up there. Incidentally, a friend who I saw this with absolutely hated it. He literally tried to tell me it was a 1/10 maybe 1 .5/10. Get the fuck out of town. He shall remain nameless so he's not ridiculed and scorned in public. You might not love this like I thought I would but you'll laugh. Overall I was satisfied when I left the theater.
Also, bonus story. When we got to the theater they had the wrong name on the theater we were going to. It said X-files instead of Pineapple Express. So that led to a scene of about 20 stoners trying to figure out where to go in the middle of the hallway. Have you ever been to a theater where they fuck up like that? In all my years of going to the movies I've never seen that. They were totally fucking with us.
