THE HIGH LIFE
If you saw Pineapple Express in a movie theater, you may have felt as if something (cough, cough) was missing. Yes, smoking may be strictly prohibited at your local cinema, but this outdoor screening of the 2008 stoner comedy in Hudson River Park, part of the River Flicks series, should be wholly inviting to your best buds (yes, sorry, pun intended). If you somehow missed it, the film stars Seth Rogen as a super slacker and James Franco as his drug dealer on the run from a ruthless gang of drug lords. And in case fancy awards mean anything to you, the film received a Golden Globe nomination for Franco for Best Performance by an Actor in a Comedy or Musical. Clearly, Mr. Franco was robbed.
