First Look: Judd Apatow's Pineapple Express - Stoners Unite!
He brought about the revolution of sex comedies, now he's going to bring back stoner comedies. Judd Apatow's next big hit is Pineapple Express directed by David Gordon Green arriving next summer. Thanks to JoBlo we've got a 4-minute clip that must be seen. There's just something really funny about Harry Osborn from Spider-Man acting like a huge stoner and marijuana dealer. He does a great job, but I'm not sold on Seth Rogen. Rogen just isn't pulling this scene off, I'm not at all impressed. But what I am impressed at is the cross-joint!
Watch this clip, then we'll explain the plot after.
Here's how it's described: A stoner (Seth Rogen) and his dealer (James Franco) are forced to go on the run from the police after the pothead witnesses a cop commit a murder. It's apparently half action, with lots of guns, and half comedy. I just imagine a combination of Half Baked and Hot Fuzz with Apatow's brilliance injected. Thanks again to JoBlo, as this is there exclusive.
Pineapple Express is directed by David Gordon Green (Snow Angels, Undertow, All the Real Girls) and written by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Judd Apatow. The film arrives in theaters next summer on August 8th, 2008.

I consider Half Baked to be one of the top 5 comedies of all time. This looks funny...but it is NO Half Baked. But that James Franco guy is HOT. I'd watch anything with that dreamboat.

This is in no way exclusive. It comes on the Superbad DVD. And Half Baked...Top 5 comedies of all times? Looks like you like to partake in a certain extracurricular activity that Half Bake centers around.

It looks like James Franco is trying WAY too hard to leave an impression ala Brad Pitt's memorable stoner role.

Haha I remember my first cross joint... takes too long to set up though, no good when you're on the move!

this clip is not that impressive, but if they're going for a Hot Fuzz-like movie, then the concept is cool and i'm interested. Holla back when you have a 'trailer'. Thanks

Seth so far really hasn't done a bad movie so this probably will be pretty good.

When I first saw this clip I was interested in the movie but didn't really get excited until they released more info and a trailer. Then I came back and watched this and was a lot funnier. But yeah...if dont have at least some experience with pot smoking this movie or clip probably wont do anything for you.

you guys are all pretty lame and i cant see any of you guys smoking some good bud. who the fuck is this critcal? no stoner i know.....anyway. i think the movie looks great, i hope the soundtrack is great cuz i know i'm gunna be blazed as hell when i go!

i loved the clip, i just wish the angles of seeing them smoke were better. its true that if ur not impressed something is wrong with you. and its really annoying when people talk shit about others about their weed. people just gotta appreciate that they have weed because some are not fortunate to have any kind bud in their area. but living in LA is great. watching pineapple express faded as f cuk = priceless. and does anyone know how to make a x-joint?
