Review Revue: Can Traveling Pants Derail Pineapple Express?

Or will The Dark Knight swoop in for even more box office cash?

by | August 8, 2008 | Comments

This week two doobie-smoking heroes might just give Batman a run for his money, as Pineapple Express opens to considerable fan anticipation. But don’t count out the plucky, denim-swapping girls of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 just yet! Watch to see what the critics are saying in this week’s Review Revue!

Join RT’s Matt Atchity, Jen Yamato, and Gabi Jacobs to discuss this week’s opening wide releases. Though a bit shy of its target Tomatometer rating of 420 percent, Pineapple Express is floating in Fresh territory this weekend; were critics inhaling along with stoned heroes Seth Rogen and James Franco? Does the fifth and final 2008 film of producer Judd Apatow live up to Superbad– or Knocked Up-level hype? And what’s with all the talk of spliffs, joints, sticky-icky and Mary Jane coming from our esteemed Tomatometer critics this week?

And before you dismiss girl power sequel Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2 this weekend, consider the power of the pants…and the ladies in them. If you didn’t mind the first Sisterhood, you might not mind the second. See what else critics say about the movie that your mothers, daughters, and sisters might opt for over the misadventures of weed-smoking schlubs this weekend.
