Harold and Kumar Go To White Castle

release year: 2004
genre: comedy
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.
