I have a particular fondness for movies that mix the smart and the dumb. The first entry in the Harold and Kumar series, despite having a fast food chain in its title, and featuring jokes about cute English girls with diarrhea, it's actually a deceptively intelligent, stereotype-busting and progressive film. John Cho and Kal Penn are one of the 21st century's finest comedic duos.
Don't analyze this movie.

"Who writes these reviews??? This film is not meant for analysis, or introspection, or cultural relevence. Here is the "bottom line". Did you think Cheech and Chong were funny? If you said "NO", then get on with your life! You have no reason to see this film. If you said "YES", then get yourself a copy of this wraunchy, in-your-face, dube-smokin', road trippin', fart rippin', juvenile-giant of a comedy! Sure it's an all-out sell, for the White Castle franchise, but let me ask you: How many of you were ever stoned, and wanted Whities Sliders??? This movie made my 60 year old mom laugh! For those of you who are too young, or too disconnected, to know about Cheech and Chong, let me put it plain, and simple. Did you ever party like a maniac, and find yourself REALLY hungy, horny, and completely lost? If you've been there, then this film is for you, and ME. My actual rating is 4.5 stars. Yep. It was that depraved. ENJOY!"
Great movie, even better DVD menus

"Although I liked the movie (enough to buy the DVD), I was not expecting the hilarity of the menu screens. In case it hasn't been mentioned much already, there was actually new content filmed for the DVD menus, specifically the Main menu and the Special Features menu. The Main DVD menu, has Harold and Kumar sitting in the car, driving. The sequence appears to repeat every minute or so, but in fact, the first 10 or so sequences are not repeats! They even end up arguing over why the DVD watcher hasn't picked any menu choices yet, and that it's not that hard to do. Very funny stuff, and an excellent addition to the movie.
The second menu, the Special Features menu, has Harold and Kumar in the car after going over the embankment. The car won't start, and Kumar keeps trying it, and trying it, for probably up to 10 minutes or so. All throughout it, he's talking and trying to get Harold to respond. They eventually try to get some sleep, in the car.
All in all, very funny stuff... Enjoy the movie, but don't forget to sit through those two menus! They are one of the most interesting and innovative ideas I've seen on a DVD in some time."
Did Doogie Howser just steal my f***ing car?

"We have all known that feeling: wanting a particular meal, unwilling to rest until we get it. Those of us who attended college will attest to the fact that after you smoke, a certain urge will soon overtake you. An urge to gorge yourself on some random food that may otherwise disgust you. Harold and Kumar are overtaken by this feeling and they are willing to do whatever it takes to get that food (in this case, White Castle) into their stomachs.
During their quest, they encounter a host of hilarious characters. Their neighbors- Goldstein & Rosenberg, the Xtreme crew, Brad the business-suave hippie, the taco-sh** girls, Freakshow, the racist cop, Tarik the cellmate, Doogie Howser! Neil Patrick Harris makes one of the funniest cameo appearances I've ever seen. It will completely ruin any innocent memories you may have had about Doogie, the boy doctor.
I thought this movie was hilarious... The story is almost arbitrary, as the characters are so funny, it wouldn't really matter what the point of the movie was. It's also cool that it all takes place along the New Jersey Turnpike, because I actually went to school along the same stretch of road. New Jersey residents will have an added appreciation for the adventure for that reason. But, whatever state you live in, you should be able to relate to aspects of both characters' personalities. Harold is responsible and "grown-up", while Kumar is a free spirit who doesn't seem to give a damn about anything. They make for a very funny pairing, even though we've all seen it before.
There is a ton of great bonus material on this DVD edition. The extended/deleted scenes are awesome and the featurettes and interviews are also entertaining. It's worth checking it all out, most definitely.
Highly recommended for those who enjoy ridiculous and filthy humor."
