  • Summary: In the great cinematic tradition of "Road Trip" and "Dude, Where's My Car?" comes Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, which follows two likeable underdogs who set out on a Friday night quest to satisfy their craving for White Castle hamburgers and end up on an epic journey of deep thoughts, deeper inhaling and a wild road trip as un-PC as it gets.

  1. Harold and Kumar share a quality the overgrown adolescents in films like this are never allowed to possess: They're witty, focused, and highly aware. They make having a brain look hip.
  2. A peppy, satisfying comedy that could soon become a minor classic

    I laughed often enough during the screening of Harold & Kumar that afterward I told Dann Gire, distinguished president of the Chicago Film Critics' Assn., that I thought maybe I should rent "Dude, Where's My Car?" and check it out.

    Clearly, this unabashedly silly movie, written by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, is the work of people with a grasp of the stream-of-consciousness creativity that a few bong hits can impart.

    The outlandish premise and greasy title may be a little hard to swallow, but Danny Leiner's proudly moronic film embraces its boneheadedness so cheerfully that its lowbrow charms are nearly irresistible.
  6. The multicultural cast gives a shred of substance to what's otherwise a standard adolescent gross-out flick.
  7. The official R rating is for "strong language, sexual content, drug use and some crude humor," but the MPAA is just being polite. It's all crude.

    Excellent comedy, it grips the viewer throughout the whole movie. They're like a better version of cheech and chong. Or the two guys from the movie How High! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Great movie, except for the cheetah part - that pretty much ruined the realism of the movie. Great choice of soundtracks, great actors - not so much comedy, though. I mean, there was some decent comedy but it didn't rise up on my level of humor. I didn't laugh on the floor holding my stomach. Nonetheless, great movie and will definitely watch the sequel when I have time. Expand

    This trip to White Castle has actors that fit their roles perfectly, and as a result is hilarious and filled with memorable moments. It has a surprisingly well delivered message, which will have you craving more. Expand

    Cult classic. I enjoyed it and I thought it was pretty funny. Yes it does get a little boring and the jokes maybe a bit too childish but its still a good comedy. Expand

    The movie isn't very intelligent it doesn't try to send any useful information or a good plot line your way. But it is very entertaining and you will feel like you're on that high that Harold and Kumar were on right with them, every step of the way. Expand
