Tropic Thunder Vs. Pineapple Express; Which was Better? Worth Watching?

Breakdown of Pineapple Express vs. Tropic Thunder, Which should you see? Both?

Tropic Thunder (8/13/2008) vs. Pineapple Express (8/6/2008)

I am a dumb movie buff and self proclaimed expert of comedies. I had to see both movies on their opening days. I was much more pumped to see Tropic Thunder than Pineapple Express. Tropic Thunder has an amazing cast of actors and had great trailers. Here is a breakdown of the two movies, and which one you should watch, if not both. To not sound redundant I will use abbreviations for the two movies (T.T.=Tropic Thunder, P.E.=Pineapple Express).

Budget
Tropic Thunder: $70 Million est.

Pineapple Express: $27 Million

Analysis: You can see the money in T.T. with a lot of explosions and special effects, maybe a little more then was needed. P.E. uses their budget very well, you don’t think of it being a low budget movie. If you like the big movie feel, then you have to give the edge to T.T.

Star Power
Tropic Thunder: Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Matthew McConaughey, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Cruise

Pineapple Express: Seth Rogan, James Franco, Rosie Perez, and a few other people you have seen from other movies.

Analysis: This is not even close. T.T. is most likely the most top-actor comedy I have ever seen. Cruise, Jack Black, Robert Downey Jr., and Ben Stiller in one movie is amazing. Seth Rogan is developing a huge cult audience however and James Franco is more than Harry Osborn from Spiderman. I didn’t know Rosie Perez was still working, it’s nice to see her in a role that’s not completely annoying. If you like big name actors then T.T. has got what you want.
