I want James Franco to be my pot dealer.

Thanks to Neil, my cousin who just came back from overseas (Uy, OFW, welcome back!), and his apparent boredom there, we were treated to a 320 external hard drive filled with almost 500 movies (and more!). The hard drive was his, but he left it at the house for a couple days. So what did we do? Why, we made like a couch potato in front of the PC, of course!

The movie of the night was… *ta-da!* Pineapple Express!

It was about… well, marijuana. More specifically the kind of weed called Pineapple Express. Smoking it, dealing it, getting involved in rivalries between major dealers… And all this while the protagonists are constantly high. It has more action than I’m used to in Judd Apatow movies, but the humor, even in the action-packed scenes never went missing.

Seth Rogen was Dale Denton. The uncute but adorable, a little sad, pathetic but funny guy. He taught us never to throw a roach out the car window, especially of the rarest strain, when you witness a murder. Thanks for the tip. James Franco plays Dale’s dealer (and friend?) with a porn star name — Saul Silver! He is fricken hilarious! I don’t think I’ve seen him in a comedy role before this and I need to say, I hope he does more of this shit. He does it so well!

The movie reminded me of another Judd Apatow movie, Superbad. I know some people who didn’t get that movie, but I know some who very much did. So let me tell you, if you don’t get this particular kind of trippy, almost-slapstick-but-not-quite, all-bantering, senseless dialogue kind of humor, then you’re not going to get it at all. Because Pineapple Express was exactly like that. Completely different story, but same style of comedy — a style I personally absolutely love, by the way!

After all the laughs, and all the facepalms, I’ve come to one conclusion: Pot is sexy.

Well, pot dealers anyway. Particularly those named James Franco (or Saul Silver).

dirty + high = sexy James Franco

"I make dirty and high look sexy."

Swoon.

Go watch the movie. As long as you’re not looking to watch a life-changing dramatic movie with a riveting plot, and just looking for a good time, I promise it won’t be a waste of time.

Also, have I mentioned how fuckin’ sexy James Franco is in it?

  3. Hahaha.

    If you hadn’t posted the picture, I would have never imagined how James Franco would look like as a pot dealer. LOL I love senseless, stupid comedy… it’s funny because it’s senseless nga.

    And btw, I don’t think Seth Rogen is not totally uncute ha (when he’s not beside James F anyway). He’s really funny and I guess that qualifies as a little “cute” right? Hehe.

  5. I love you, James Franco. Even with the stoned look, he looks sexy. Gaah.

    I’d watch it while keeping a box of tissues by my side to wipe off the froth in my mouth. Haha. But fangirling aside, the plot looks interesting.
