Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
It's a quality movie even if the material is unworthy of the treatment. As a result, yes, it's a druggie comedy that made me laugh.

The laughs -- mostly crude, profane and drug-addled -- are almost non-stop.

It's a funny, mostly harmless and entertaining film with a bad case of dry mouth.

It's with that action aspect that Pineapple Express differs from Apatow's previous production output, and though, the words "taut" and "pulse-pounding" would never apply, the giddily over-the-top fight sequences, choreographed by veteran stunt coordinator Gary Hymes, handily compensate for the lag time.

The movie's too long - and the violence and mayhem are unexpectedly harsh and heavy - but Franco's inspired, looped performance is right up there in the annals of reefer filmdom with Jeff Bridges' the Dude in "The Big Lebowski."

By Ty Burr
Disappointingly, Pineapple Express is less than the sum of its ingredients, even if it's still a good stupid time at the movies.

When "Pineapple" goes from ganja to genre, it sours.
