Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle


Harold_kumar_1 "Dude, Where’s My White Castle?" could easily have been the title for this pot-infused comic buddy-movie by director Danny Leiner ("Dude, Where’s My Car?"). The amiable film is groundbreaking for its fresh depiction of Asian American and Indian American youth culture with charactersthat resonate in an immediate way that Hollywood films seldom promote. Corporate day-slave Harold (John Cho – "American Pie"), and his med school roommate Kumar (Kal Penn – "Malibu’s Most Wanted"), are a couple of regular guys with a serious case of Friday-night-munchies that dispatch them on a wild New Jersey journey in search of White Castle hamburgers. Our fearless stoned heroes suffer all manner of mischievous goofball experiences on their quest for mass quantities of the only burger that can satisfy their similarly demanding palates. You’ll laugh, you’ll laugh, and you’ll laugh — especially if you see the movie in the cannabis enhanced glaze that the filmmakers intend.

Rated R. 88 mins. (B+) (Four Stars)
