'Pineapple Express' (2008)

Authenticity: That giant smoke ring Seth Rogen blows in the movie? It came from years of practice. It's the pot movie equivalent of watching Jackie Chan running off a wall. Stoned-track: Bob Marley and Peter Tosh … finally, Jamaica represents! Place in pot culture: Between writing and starring in "Pineapple," playing a pothead in "Knocked Up" and being upfront about his own fondness for grass, Rogen has become an unassuming hero to stoners. That you don't have to be wasted to enjoy these movies makes the rest of us happy too. Photos: Stoner Cinema Photo: James Franco, left, and Seth Rogen in "Pineapple Express."
