If you like your comedy extreme and your action twisted, buckle up for this epic story of deep inhaling and sizzling hot buns! Straitlaced, hard-working Harold (John Cho) and his roommate, the rebellious, hard-partying Kumar (Kal Penn), have only one thing in common – a serious case of the munchies. As they set out on a quest to satisfy their craving, Harold and Kumar’s simple road trip turns into a hilarious all-night adventure filled with outrageous obstacles, sick characters and dangerous, sexy curves! With a hysterically funny supporting cast including Neil Patrick Harris and Fred Willard, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle will take you on a rollercoaster comedy ride. –New Line Cinema
Whereas the Wizard of Oz was secretly about U.S. monetary policy in the 1890's, this decent update is secretly about how there's no White Castles on the Sunset Strip. All the obvious stuff about legalization and assimilation and stereotyping and New Jersey is just window dressing for the pyramid of slyders at the end of the hang-glider crash site. Never gets funnier than the Battleshits, but never gets dull either.
Surprise: It’s going over pretty damn well. “One of the most earnest and subversive studio releases of the season.”
