From the director ofDude, Where's My Car?comes another crazed tale of two friends on a perilous quest--in this case, to eat burgers at the fast food restaurant White Castle. The pair--repressed Harold (John Cho,Better Luck Tomorrow) and freewheeling Kumar (Kal Penn,Love Don't Cost a Thing)--get extremely high and set off on the road, only to be sidetracked by skateboarding hooligans, racist cops, an inbred tow truck driver, and Neil Patrick Harris--yes, Doogie Howser, M.D. The humor is all over the map, and it would be nice if there were one female character who wasn't a caricature, butHarold and Kumar Go to White Castlehas a loose, gregarious charm, and the movie's canniness about the cliches of the buddy-movie genre give it a sneaky subversive feel--just the fact that neither of the heroes is white puts a different spin on just about every circumstance. Surprisingly clever, cheerfully stupid.--Bret Fetzer

Even though I enjoyed watching "Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle," I don't feel that it deserves more than three stars. Some of the scenes in this flick are hilarious, but most of the movie just seems to plod along between those scenes.    It starts out easy enough, Harold("American Pie's" John Cho) is your average Asian intelligent guy stuck in a deadend job. He gets walked on by his co-workers and is stuck doing their work for the evening. His roommate, the underachieving …

Boy, does this movie look stupid. And, boy, is this movie funny. I'm just shocked. Doogie Howser, stoner munchies, bumbling cops like we haven't seen since the Dukes of Hazzard. It all sounds juvenile, sophomoric, and dumb. But somehow it works, and it is one of the funniest movies I've seen in a very long time. How they managed to pull this off I may never be able to figure out, but I have to recommend this one. Maybe it is because the characters are so earnest, kind, and real. Or maybe it is because …

If you liked the humor in the Revenge of the Nerds movies you should definately like this one. This movie is so stupid but has some gut-wrenchingly funny parts nonetheless.    There are a lot of stereotypes (racial profilers, Indian convenience store guys, etc.) thar are played out well in a humorous way.    No matter how far the pair travel, they seem to run into the same people are end up back at some of the same places. And yes, the movie did make me make …

Pros: Hilarious at times, Doogie Howser cameo, race commentary, soundtrack, boobs     Cons: Gross-out humor, lack of plot (not necessarily a problem)     The Bottom Line: A very funny, modern day, intelligent, stoner movie.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals major details about the movie''s plot. It’s easy to dismiss Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle as a dumb, stoner movie filled with stereotypical characters, but, if you look …
