A dream team creates a stoner comedy to cap off the golden age of improv. Odd man out David Gordan Greene helms the ship as Seth Rogen, James Franco, and a motley ensemble of character actors "yes and" their way through suburban EL Lay. It is the definitive weed movie of the 2000s.

We trace the life of Pineapple Express from conception (Apatow's "weed action movie"), production (Greene refused to use the script on set), release (dog days with 3.7x multiplier), reception (cult classic or an afterthought?)

Join us as we trace the life of Pineapple Express...
