With ‘Pineapple Express’ out on DVD this weekend we catch up with Seth Rogen and James Franco
Seth Rogen and James Franco go Cheech and Chong! The ‘Freaks and Geeks’ boys are reunited on DVD this weekend in the latest comedy from Judd Apatow ‘The Pineapple Express’
Rogen plays lazy stoner Dale Denton, who has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver (James Franco): to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. But when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop and the city’s most dangerous drug lord, he panics and dumps his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene. Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him. And it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they’re not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia; incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both.
With ‘Pineapple Express’, the team behind ‘Superbad’ offer a hilarious mix n’ match of genres from pot comedy to action and adventure. Movies.ie met up with the two men to talk about the film, the critics reactions and the possibility of a Superbad crosser.
