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
On the DVD version if you go to the Menu screen you'll see Harold and Kumar driving Harold's car. If you let it sit long enough, they'll start to complain. "Why haven't they picked one of the menu choices yet? There are only, what, four choices?" Wait awhile longer: "They STILL haven't picked? What should we do? Do you want me to take my clothes off?".

Harold's car (2003 Toyota Camry) has alloy wheels, yet when they pull over for Kumar to urinate in the woods, the car has cheaper hubcaps. When the raccoon climbs in you see a close-up of the alloy wheels again, then again see hubcaps as the car pulls away. Not only that but Harold's car has leather seats, throughout the film yet at the shot of the drive through at burger barn, you can see that the car has cloth seats. See more »

I haven't laughed that hard at a movie in a long time. Being a fan of White Castle and the talents of John Cho and Kal Penn, this movie was a sure fire hit. Normally I would think a script about two stoners on a quest for White Castle sliders would be boring, if not retarded, material... but this movie just works.
Let's face it - the stoner angle may not appeal to everyone, but their quest is just too good/funny to pass up. There are more wacky moments than most "buds hit the road" comedies can muster. Imagine Neil Patrick Harris (NPH!!) playing himself - well, he flippin' does here, in a very funny, if slightly disturbing, role. The comradeship between John and Kal is fantastic. They'll probably remind you of two old buds from college - or maybe even hit closer to home.
I'm not sure if it's the great delivery by John/Kal, maybe the writing, or a both - this movie is really a great time. The whole theater was laughing - I haven't heard that in A LONG TIME. Did "Bruce Almighty" do that? No. Did "Envy" do it? Hell no. Did "50 First Dates" do it? Ummm, no.
Bottom line - this is a good movie that actually delivers the laughs.
