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
The characters Rosenberg and Goldstein are named for the characters Rosencrantz and Guildenstern in the William Shakespeare play "Hamlet". The writers hope to create an alternate film with these characters that takes place in the same time period much like the way that the Tom Stoppard play "Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead" takes place in the same time period as "Hamlet".

The blood stain on Harold's shirt disappears for a few shots after the raccoon scene, when they almost collide with the car on the road. 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 steals their truck.

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.
