Funny film to pass some time
Verified purchase
I mainly watched this movie as I am a Christmas movie nut, and as Harold and Kumar's third movie was the Christmas one I thought I should watch the first two in the franchise first.
Considering the film is about pot heads, and I am not one, it was still a fun film so don't let that put you off.
Laugh out loud at times and it seemed to finish quickly so didn't drag on like others in this genre can do at times.
Definitely worth a watch.

Accurate portrayal of this culture!
Verified purchase
In the movie Kumar is a brash, talented, if unmotivated medical student, and Harold is a shy, struggling but ambitious young man trying to advance his career as an investment banker. They are both written as well-rounded, fully fleshed-out personalities that exist independently from the fact that they're both potheads.

Aside from that, it's such a tight, well-paced movie with a simple yet endearing plot despite being so vulgar and absurd. It boasts some of the best cameos from actors like Anthony Anderson, Ryan Reynolds, and of course, the legendary Neil Patrick Harris. This movie is an anthem for all fellow ents that have ever found themselves chronically sidetracked.

The film is good, recommend it!

Thinking about those tender little White Castle Burgers

I really love all 3 of the Harold and Kumar movies. This one is about the journey 2 pot heads are willing to make in order to get the perfect munchies. Personally, I only watch these movies after a decent reefer.

I wish there were White Castles in the UK...

You have to be in the right mood for film such as Harold and Kumar, there's no doubt about that. The Humour is at times crass and frequently immature, but if you're looking for a laugh you don't have to think deeply into, something you can sit down, relax and just laugh at, this may be for you!

The plot is wafer thin and simply is a vehicle to drive the two leads (well played by John Cho and Karl Penn) into the next comic situation. They come across some very funny characters (kudos to NPH for his cameo) and in some senses the film can seem like a series of sketches. Typically these are funny if slightly immature, but with a film such as this, that's exactly what I was looking for!

If you want to watch this film I'd recommend sitting back, disengaging your brain and enjoying a couple of hours of escapism. Excellent stuff.

Got to be said though, those burgers did look good...

Really great movie, why are you reading this and not watching it?

Keeping this short

This movie is about two guys who get high (Warning you now in case you're offended by this type of thing: there are a lot of drug references), and get the munchies, so decide to go to White Castle to eat. I won't say any more, as to not ruin it for you, but this is easily one of the funniest comedies I've seen in some time. If you don't at least smile at some point during the film, you probably don't have a mouth. Kal Penn and John Cho are two of my favourite actors, and play their part incredibly well, and you find yourself becoming attatched to the characters as time goes on.

This movie was recommended by my brother and various other friends. In retrospect I can see why now. I may be a bit late to the party in terms of watching it, but it's much better late than never, especially for a film this well done. Alongside literally making you laugh out loud, the film lifts your spirits. I'm going to go watch it again.

Thank You For Coming have a Nice Day

I went to a White Castle once - somewhere out near Minneapolis - in the middle of nowhere. It was good - very good - but the burgers were tiny and had four little holes in them. Weird. But you could eat loads of them. Good film - a bit like a trip really - would be better if you were high. But of course I don't do that sort of thing. Actually, I'm feeling kind of hungry myself right now ...

One of the best comedies ever!

This film is absolutely brilliant!

It does not take itself seriously, yet it is very clever in places.

I wish they had made more than three.
