August 2018, there was the 10th anniversary of Pineapple Express. To celebrate it, Seth Rogen (who wrote the screenplay and played one of the main characters) shared multiple unknown Pineapple Express facts on Twitter.
Inspired by these funny tweets, the Typical Student team decided to rewatch PA. Also, we’d like to share with you a bunch of worthy student movies from 2000’s you may have missed.
#1 Pineapple Express
Director: David Gordon Green
Cast: James Franco, Seth Rogen, Amber Heard, Danny McBride.
Pineapple Express is a wonderful classic student comedy. The movie shows the life of Dale, an ordinary 25-year-old process server, who smokes marijuana. One day, Dale makes friend with his dealer, Saul. He shows to the customer the most groundbreaking mj sort and here the main story starts.
#2 Road Trip
Director: Todd Phillips
Cast: Breckin Meyers, Amy Smart, Tom Green, etc.
Road Trip is a hilarious sex comedy, directed by Todd Phillips. The movie shows the story of childhood friends and the way the relationship changes when they go to the high school. Soon Josh and Tiffany enter different universities to face distance problems.
However, the trip changes everything.
#3 AcceptedYear: 2006
Director: Steve Pink
Cast: Justin Long, Blake Lively, Jonah Hill
What should a student do if September is almost here but they weren’t accepted? Well, here is a cool comedy, which has all the answers? Senior student receives the last college letter. It’s rejection again. Still, Bartleby doesn’t put his hands down and decides to open his own university.
#4 Some Kind of Wonderful
Director: Howard Deutch
Cast: Eric Stoltz, Lea Thompson, Craig Sheffer
After finishing his previous hit ‘Pretty in Pink’, John Hughes wrote the scenario for Some Kind of Wonderful. This is a soft movie, which contains both comedy and drama. Film shows us the story of future artist, Keith. This young and sensitive man vies the affection of the local high school queen, Amanda.
Director: Greg Mottola
Cast: Michael Cera, Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, and Seth Rogen
We started this list with a magical movie with Seth Rogen, so let’s have a harmonical ending. As you can see, here we have the same faces and Michael Cera (you may know him as Scott Pilgrim) makes a great addition to them.
So, what is the movie about? Procuring drinks for a party, boys dream of saying ‘bye’ to virginity before university starts. High School seniors start doing lots of bad things hoping that such step will move them from geek list.
Will they ever succeed? You won’t believe the answer!
