After being mistaken for terrorists and thrown into Guantánamo Bay, stoners Harold and Kumar escape and return to the U.S., where they proceed to flee across the country with federal agents in hot pursuit.
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
Harold shares a jail cell with Tarik, who tells him not to get riled up by people because "in the end, the universe tends to unfold as it should". Tarik is quoting the 1927 poem "Desiderata" by Max Ehrmann. See more »
While the geography of New Jersey in the movie is very accurate during Harold and Kumar's journey from north Jersey to south Jersey, there is simply no need for them to have driven so far to find a White Castle. The trip from Hoboken to Cherry Hill is 85 miles and takes about 2 hours (without traffic), and there about 20 White Castles along the way. In fact, Harold and Kumar didn't even have to get on a highway to find one; there is a White Castle on Kennedy Boulevard in Jersey City, which is adjacent to Hoboken. See more »

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!
