DVD: Pineapple Express, Retail & Rental, (Sony)

Click to follow

'Pineapple Express' has all the semi-improvised, man-childish banter you'd expect from a Judd Apatow production, but it also has a thriller plot to boost the momentum.

Seth Rogen stars as a stoner who witnesses a gangland execution, and has to go on the run with his dealer, James Franco. The film harks back to the buddy movies of the 1980s, except that the heroes are far more bumbling than Eddie Murphy and Mel Gibson ever were, and therefore far more endearing.
