  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
  3. This stoner buddy movie is filled with raunchy, gross-out humor. It's immature, clunky and probably the best bit of groundbreaking social commentary we've seen in years.
  4. 63
    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.
  5. 60
    It boldly subverts stereotypes and challenges conventional wisdom by presenting affable Korean and Indian antiheroes who are just as sex-crazed, irresponsible, mischief-prone, and chemically altered as their white counterparts.
  6. Funnier when high -- what isn't? -- Harold and Kumar may also serve as the first infomercial for weed and burgers.
  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.

    If I was sixteen and hadn't seen these jokes before, I would have thought it was hysterical. Since I'm not I rarely cracked a smile.
