Directed by Danny Leiner, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle follows the life-changing (and mind-altering) journey of Korean-American investment banker Harold (John Cho) and Indian-American medical-school candidate Kumar (Kal Penn). Both underdogs, Harold and Kumar decide to spend what would have been an otherwise uneventful Friday night satisfying an oddly intense urge for White Castle hamburgers.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A multilayered goof on ethnic stereotypes..."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Silliness is the movie's only ambition, but there's something mind-blowing about seeing a fratty comedy through two pairs of Asian-American eyes, particularly when those eyes belong to actors who were token minorities in other dumb comedies."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"One of the funniest films I've seen in a years."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"'This night is about the American dream,' Kumar promises, and you know what? It sort of is. [Blu-Ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"...fares a whole lot better than the majority of its stoner-comedy brethren..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Behind all the Farrelly-esque gross-out humour and Cheech & Chong-isms lies a sensitive little picture with a deftly handled anti-racism slant."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"A peppy, satisfying comedy that could soon become a minor classic."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"Extremely dumb and vulgar comedy; not for kids."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"...for all its juvenile shortcomings, there's a sweet and beguiling charm to the film."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"An over-the-top romp which rehashes lots of dumb drug jokes but breaks far enough away from the tried-and-true teen formula to earn a high mark even from this jaded critic."
‑ Kam Williams, Bean Soup Times
"Stretches the boundaries of offensiveness in ways that both make us laugh and make us think."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"Will seem a classic if you're stoned, and only slightly less funny if you're straight."
‑ Stephen Hunter, Washington Post
"You'll laugh, you'll laugh, and you'll laugh%u2014especially if you see the movie in the cannabis enhanced glaze that the filmmakers intend."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"A deserving modern classic, even if only for being so bold as to describe Katie Holmes' breasts as being "the exact opposite" of the Holocaust."
‑ Rob Humanick, Projection Booth
"a whacky, racially refreshing breather in Hollywood's white-dominated, politically over-correct bummer of a mainstream culture"
‑ Jay Antani, Cinema Writer
