All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
The soundtrack for director David Gordon Green's stoner action comedy Pineapple Express is notable mainly for the inclusion of a brand new track and custom title cut from America's favorite bar band, Huey Lewis & the News. Taking its name from a particularly potent strain of marijuana, "Pineapple Express" the song is a throwback to Sports-era Lewis, mirroring the bluesy, sax-driven backbeat of "Heart of Rock and Roll" and "I Want a New Drug."

    Rid the Express

    This movie was awesome. The music definitely meshed well with the scenes in the movie. It definitely was one of the funniest movies I've seen in theatres in a while. Everyone, even non-smokers, should go see this movie.

    where's M.I.A.?

    you'd thunk they would put in MIA's &quot paper planes&quot , but noooooo. I heard that all the stuff in the trailers was just for show. All the clever cuts and music sequencies were just for the trailer. You can't find any of that in the movie. Oh well: still gonna see it...for Franco, of course!!!
