Review

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." It's not a bad tune at all, but the lack of a memorable chorus and the inclusion of a sample of actor Seth Rogen taking bong hits keep things squarely in the parody camp. What follows is a fairly pedestrian collection of disparate tracks for such a deliberately constructed "weed" movie, including a couple of left-field '80s hits from Robert Palmer ("Woke Up Laughing") and Eddy Grant ("Electric Avenue"); a little bit of Public Enemy, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and Bell Biv DeVoe to welcome in the '90s; and some Cypress Hill and Peter Tosh to help keep the smoke from sneaking past the wet dorm room towel and into the hallway. ~ James Christopher Monger
