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 »
Throughout the movie you can clearly see Harold's laptop bag fold in the middle showing there is no laptop in the bag. Particularly visible at the gas station. 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.

Hilarious- simply brilliant
OK, maybe I "got" this movie because I'm a recent graduate of an ivy-league school (and I can relate to Harold and Kumar, and know about 200 people like them), but I didn't stop laughing. And I'm not a person who is into "American Pie" type movies- yet this was still totally hilarious. I think it is going to be one of those cult comedies, like "Office Space" or "Old School" that people watch over and over again.
Listen, don't go in expecting an academy award winning film, but just go in ready to laugh. I thought the writing had real wit, not to mention the hidden references and one liners that any film buff will appreciate.
Go see this movie- I really don't think it will disappoint. I'm a real cinephile, I see everything and am usually quite picky, but I loved this film!!
