Dale Denton is a court-process clerk who spends his time “serving” people and smoking pot. One day he’s sitting in his car with a very rare blend – pineapple express – when he witnesses an infamous drug lord and a police officer kill someone. Completely in panic he throws his smoke out of the window of his car and drives off as fast as he can. He goes back to his dealer Saul to find out just how rare this Pineapple Express is and when Saul tells him he’s the only customer to have actually received it up to now, the two realise it’s only a matter of time before killers will be coming after them…
Sound and Vision:
There’s some minor edge enhancement and grain present but overall the image is good. Some scenes tend to be a bit soft but this doesn’t hurt the viewing experience too much. Contrast and shadow detail are decent.
The 5.1 soundtrack is very subtle and hardly uses the surround speakers and subwoofer. Especially during the action scenes this is a pitty as it could have been a lot more dynamic.

Pineapple Express is a comedy by the makers of Superbad and as such you can have a good idea of what to expect. The comedy is simplistic and comes very close to slapstick and while watching I immediately though of old movies like Bill&Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill&Ted’s Bogus Journey. Indeed, it’s typical comedy that doesn’t really make you laugh but remains in the back of your head and I can imagine that if you’re high on pot while watching, this movie is fantastic. When you watch it sober, however, it’s mediocre.
