Since I’ve got to pack for Comic-Con and post a contest….this intro has to be brief. I’ve seen “Pineapple Express” twice now. Once at a test screening a year ago and I also saw the final version a few weeks ago. Both times I laughed my ass off.

Quite simply, this is a film you definitely need to see next month and you won’t believe how amazing James Franco is as a pot dealer named Saul. Remember Brad Pitt’s character in “True Romance”? That’s James Franco for the entire movie. While Seth and all the other actors are great in Pineapple…James steals the show.

Anyway, the film finally comes out on August 6th so Sony has just sent over 6 movie clips for you to watch below.

And while I probably shouldn’t endorse using drugs before seeing a movie…for this film…if you happen to smoke something before watching it…you might enjoy it even more. Here’s the official synopsis and the clips:

Lazy stoner Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) has only one reason to visit his equally lazy dealer Saul Silver (James Franco): to purchase weed, specifically, a rare new strain called Pineapple Express. But 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 his roach of Pineapple Express at the scene. Dale now has another reason to visit Saul: to find out if the weed is so rare that it can be traced back to him. And it is. As Dale and Saul run for their lives, they quickly discover that they’re not suffering from weed-fueled paranoia; incredibly, the bad guys really are hot on their trail and trying to figure out the fastest way to kill them both. All aboard the Pineapple Express.

So to help promote the film, we’ve been given 6 clips from the film. Only watch them if you want to laugh.
