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
As a "thank you" for all of the free advertising the film gave them, White Castle arranged to have collectible "Harold and Kumar" cups at all of their locations during the film's release. It marks the first time an R-rated comedy is advertised on fast food containers. See more »
In Kumar's Med school interview, his collar alternates position. He begins tucked with tabs in, then one side tucked under his jacket, then both tabs out, then the opposite tab tucked, completely tucked in, then both out. See more »
Billy boy! Get your ass ready. It's almost 5:00 and this bad boy needs to get his drink on. No, no, no. Give me that.
I'm gonna burn it once and for all.

There is approximately one extra minute of scenes in the "Unrated" version of the movie:
At the Asian party, two women flash the shy guy in order to get some weed. Harold and Kumar stop and stare, as does a campus police officer chasing them. The women then cover themselves after noticing the campus police.
After the kayak stunt, the guys talk a little longer about how "extreme" the stunt was and one picks up a bag of Doritos Extreme Cheddar and eats it.
The scene with Neil Patrick Harris and the two strippers is slightly longer.
Cindy Kim is shown kissing Goldstein (when his mouth is full of food) at Hotdog Heaven.
The Extreme guys have more dialogue after Harold steal's their truck.

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!
