On "Pineapple Express"

From The Dispatch:
Discussions of a film like this can't really get too deep beyond just how gaspingly funny it is. This is minute for minute, laugh for laugh one of the funniest movies I have seen in ages, averaging more consistent laughs per minute than any other film this year. It can be awkwardly edited at times, but Rogen and Franco are always right there to keep things moving in the right direction, rising to the occasion and bringing the belly laughs at every turn. It may not be deep or profound, but it is wonderfully hilarious and well-directed by Green, who manages to make even the most absurd situations work and seem completely grounded in the reality of the film, even during the ludicrously over-the-top violent finale, which is one of the most ridiculously uproarious scenes in quite some time.

I am not a fan of this film at all, but I realize that your own entertainment and enjoyment of it should not be downplayed. It's MY proble, nobody else's. Maybe it's just me.
