Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle
release year: 2004
viewing setting: home DVD, 1/31/05
synopsis: Two young professionals smoke some dope, get hungry, and embark on a quest to get some White Castle hamburgers - and run into just about every problem possible.
impressions: Given that synopsis, I'll just outline some of the things they encounter on their trip: a party, a gigantic bag of dope, a cheetah, Neil Patrick Harris (Doogie Howser), topless women, a flat tire, a disfigured hillbilly, having their car stolen, a gang of rabid extreme sports fans, racist cops, the surgeon's table at a hospital. This movie was a riot - there were several times when we laughed out loud. The script does a great job of mixing as many insane events as possible into a short span of time.
things to watch for: The entire scene at Princeton.
something this movie has that no other movie has: "Battleship" played out as a toilet competition.
acting: Harold was the quiet, serious one; Kumar was the party animal.
final word: Hilarious, absolutely recommended.
