It’s hard to believe that Pineapple Express is already over a decade old. To many fans, it stands as Judd Apatow’s best movie. Either way, it warrants a yearly watch and what better time than the summer months?

The plot follows a man and his marijuana dealer as they flee after witnessing a hitman and a corrupt police officer murder a man. The hitman is able to track Dale and Saul so an epic chase ensues. The men find themselves in very dangerous situations but become good friends along the way. There’s also a wild amount of drug use in the movie which makes sense due to the plot.

The movie featured many big names before they went on to become super famous. There was always talk of a Pineapple Express sequel, but nothing ever came into development. Franco was notably nominated for a Golden Globe award for Best Actor award due to his performance as Saul. He lost out to Colin Farrell for his work in fellow comedy, In Burges.
