After taking on the sex comedy in THE 40-YEAR-OLD VIRGIN and KNOCKED UP and redefining the coming-of-age film in SUPERBAD, the filmmaking team at Apatow Productions makes its first action/comedy in PINEAPPLE EXPRESS, a Midnight Run for the stoner set about two lazy guys on the lam and their comic attempt to stay one step ahead of a band of vicious killers.

Process server Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) has a grudging business relationship with the laconic Saul Silver (James Franco), deigning to visit only to purchase Saul's primo product - a rare new strain of pot called Pineapple Express. However when Dale becomes the only witness to a murder by a crooked cop (Rosie Perez) and the city's most dangerous drug lord (Gary Cole), he panics and dumps the Pineapple Express at the scene.

Dale now has another reason to visit Saul - to see if the distinctive weed can be traced back to him When it is, Dale and Saul run for their lives... and they quickly discover that they're not just suffering from weed-fuelled paranoia, as the bad guys really are trying to kill them - fast. If they survive, these two just might become real friends. All aboard the Pineapple Express.

Pineapple Express is available as a single disc release, containing the original UK theatrical cut and commentaries, and a two-disc release, featuring both the original US theatrical cut and an extended version, plus a bonus digital copy of the film.
