Pineapple Express

Yesterday I went with CB to go check out this movie for a matinee - really because it's the only thing I found in the listings that I had any interest in seeing.

The verdict? Wait for a rental.

I won't deny that there are some good laughs in the movie, but overall the plot feels pulled in two directions. On the one hand it's a buddy comedy in the Judd Apatow "nothing is sacred" genre. But on the other hand it's fiercely skewering stereotypical Hollywood action films to the point of absurdity. CB said that if you want to see humor like that - go see Tropic Thunder, which he reports is much, much better.

My grade - C-.
