Harold Lee and Kumar Patel are two stoners who end up getting the munchies. What they crave the most after seeing a TV advertisement, is a trip to White Castle. So from here, follows a journey for the burgers they require. On their way they will encounter many obstacles including a raccoon, a racist officer, and a horny Neil Patrick Harris. Written by
The "dust" in the vent was made out of walnut powder, even though the crew had received a memo saying that Kal Penn is extremely allergic to nuts. Production had to be stopped for the day that they shot the scenes with Kumar falling out of the vent in the police station while Kal Penn had to go to the hospital. The powder was then remade with chocolate powder for the next round of shooting. (from DVD commentary) See more »
When Kumar was on his cell at the start of the movie and he shocks the principal, the guy drops his cup of coffee and it spills on him. However, in the next scene, it appears back on his table. After Kumar is done and when the guy starts to talk, we can see that the cup is nowhere to be seen on his desk. See more »

I'm gonna burn it once and for all.

Haven't laughed so hard since Something About Mary!
We stuck our heads in this movie because we had 15 minutes to kill before our movie started ("Collateral"). Surprise of surprises, we were glued to our seats and didn't want to leave! We're NOT 20-somethings or even 30-somethings, yet we found this entire movie eye-watering funny! These two actors are great at their craft, and their on-screen combination a perfect match. Our only regret is that we can't take our 14-year-old son to see it--the movie makes light of drugs and sex too much for his age (in our "parental opinion"). However, it's no worse in that regard than South Park or other hit movies involving college-age adults (a la Animal House). In fact, it has many more redeeming qualities than AH. Specifically speaking, the not-so-subtle (and rightfully so) social commentary. We hope that part isn't lost in the incredible humor. We HIGHLY recommend this movie to those of you who enjoy movies like There's Something About Mary, Four Rooms ("Misbehavers" vignette), etc. Favorite scenes: two sorority types in the restroom and the two African American men in the jail house!
