Seth Rogen has legions of male fans and that may be enough to unseat “The Dark Knight” from the number one slot its been holding at the box office since it opened. If this happens Rogen will no doubt become one of the hottest commodities in Hollywood and his ability to get a project green-lighted will be on par with Steven Speilberg, Tom Cruise and Tom Hanks. 

There is a strong chance “Pineapple Express” will be the number one movie in America. it’s incredibly funny and wildly entertaining. The words “instant classic” come to mind. Rogen and co-star James Franco are a great team and if there was any doubt of Franco’s talents, this movie shows how far his artistic range goes. Franco personifies his character so well that it’s difficult to remember that he starred in “Spider-Man” and portrayed James Dean on television. An Oscar nomination is probably not in the cards for him with this movie, but there will be one in his future.
