4:20

It's a safe bet that after its first run Pineapple Express, the cannabis-powered comedy starring Seth Rogen and James Franco, will become an arthouse staple, programmed into the late-night "cult classic" time slot. But this might be your only chance to see the film at the hour at which it was truly meant to be viewed. That's right, Cheech -- we're talking 4:20 p.m. An '80s-style action flick rolled up with a buddy movie, Pineapple Express requires very little concentration to follow. It bumbles through a plot enlivened by stellar cameos, neck-cracking chase scenes, and Sprite-spraying one-liners. In other words, it's perfect for viewing through a cloud of unfiltered inspiration. Set your alarm clocks, and get your lighters ready. (Also shows at 7:15 p.m., 9:35 p.m.)
Tue., Sept. 23; Wed., Sept. 24, 2008
