If it's crap ... We'll tell you
High Times during Medievel Ages: 2 half-breed Jews (McBride's father & Franco's mother) & an Israeli Oscar winner are on a quest to totally clown on the D&D, King Arthur, and just about EVERY pop culture reference in geekdom...while cashing in a million dollar check.
I laughed once during Pineapple Express. Unless you've observed the absurd outfits people wear at Dennys around 6AM after clubbing in downtown LA, you can't possibly understand freaks having breakfast amongst retired community and NO ONE even flinching. So when three guys: One missing pants and an ear, another shot up bleeding all over, and a third guy smelling like stale pajamas sitting in a diner and ordering the Grand Slam Breakfast having a normal convo...you realize the joke's on you.
Well, 3/4ths of the Pineapple Express have been re-assembled to take their shenanigans (pot jokes) to cash in on that geek coin. No different than Sucker Punch but in the safe zone of "Oh we're just making fun of our own geekness..." It's more fun for sure...but no less manipulative.
So let's see how many pot jokes run during this film? I'm going to go with 5.
Itinerary for 4/8
8:10pm showing of Your Highness
102 North End Ave.
New York, NY 10281
G-man and I will meet 30 minutes prior at Pick-a-Bagel shop right next to the theatre.
I was thinking of hitting a Hookah bar after...but we'll see how it plays out with every one. I'm estimating that we'll be there around 2300-ish (obviously depending on what time the movie lets out and catching a cabbie uptown to NYU/Greenwich area).
This sounds great. I've been in New York for just under 8 months and had no idea of a group of spill fan meets.
