Being delivered from the wrath of seriously deformed 'Freak Show' and his siren wife doesn't deter them from considering the affections of the battling babes or idolizing Neil Patrick Harris in a cameo playing himself as a lethal womanizer. Specifically speaking, the not-so-subtle and rightfully so social commentary. Harold and Kumar are trying to find an all-night White Castle after experiencing the sudden yearning that afflicts almost anyone who has had a 'slider' burger. Also it showed the other side to these two minorities which is usually purposely ignored. Sadly though the second film falls way short of the mark in terms of laughs. More serious is the multicultural subtext about stereotyping Asians are nerdy number crunchers and Indians are overachieving medical doctors, for instance overturned by, for instance, morphing a seemingly 'Joy Luck' club gathering into a raunchy party or exposing a gang of mouthy skinheads as 'girliemen. Yet, as these two stoner friends come to realize, even the seemingly simplest of goals in life can be impossible to achieve, due to such disturbances as irony, circumstance, error, and misfortune, as they are all encountered in this journey.
This movie, as you see from the trailer, is about two guys who have the munchies and all they want is to go get some White Castle fast food. Like that little square of fat and calories, the pot and girls are just too good not to indulge now and then. Listen, don't go in expecting an academy award winning film, but just go in ready to laugh. I really enjoyed this film. And that's exactly what happens to Harold and his roommate, Kumar, when they set out to get the best stoner fix money can buy: White Castle hamburgers.
Minute Neil Patrick Harris amuses himself with two naked women in Harold's stolen car. Adventure Comedy Sometimes, it takes a strange night to put everything else into focus. It does not base its humor solely the idea of getting high, this movie is able to find humor in more then just that. This is a fresh, original, and satisfying comedy, and though it is nothing of a brilliant production or a cinematic masterpiece, there are plenty of the elements here which constitute for a barrel of laughs and a genuinely entertaining experience at the movies. During the whole scene another background is seen. Harold and Kumar stop and stare, as does a campus police officer chasing them. Go see this movie- I really don't think it will disappoint.
The student playfully hesitates a bit but is willing to give them some of it if they show him their breasts. Don't worry my not so Indian, white friend, sitting next to me, got just as much a kick out of it as well. Surprise of surprises, we were glued to our seats and didn't want to leave! So from here, follows a journey for the burgers they require. Definitely worth a second, a third, and fourth watch, and then some. On their way they will encounter many obstacles including a raccoon, a racist officer, and a horny Neil Patrick Harris. However as the film went on I realised that there would be nothing particularly smart about this film and that it is all about the stoner comedy as per the first film - which, like I said, I enjoyed.
I thought the writing had real wit, not to mention the hidden references and one liners that any film buff will appreciate. The support cast features a wonderfully daft turn from Corddy but mostly just minor roles doing the basics. Take the best comedic part of every movie you have ever seen and just combine them all together to make this one hilarious film. If stoner comedy has a place in the satire canon, this is one of the best. Go see this movie- I really don't think it will disappoint. These two actors are great at their craft, and their on-screen combination a perfect match.
If two chicks sitting in stalls playing 'Battleshits' while the two Indian and Asian 'heroes' hide between them suffering the sounds and smells of scatological low humor sounds funny to you, then you should consider seeing 'Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle. What was great about this movie was that they tackled modern day stereotypes and showed the stupidity in exploiting them. The comic elements are listless: stoner instinct-gone horribly awry, catastrophic error, not-so-pleasant raunchy surprise, near-death escapes in the most unlikeliest of ways, and the eventual finesse of overcoming all obstacles to finally enjoy a binge at a hamburger joint. However, it's no worse in that regard than South Park or other hit movies involving college-age adults a la Animal House. Listen, don't go in expecting an academy award winning film, but just go in ready to laugh. I'm a real cinephile, I see everything and am usually quite picky, but I loved this film!! Cho and Penn make engaging leads and they play well to the material - that much of it isn't that good is not down to their performances, if anything they deserved better. That the film opens with Kumar taking a dump and then ejaculating up over himself amazingly did not dissuade me from this belief.
Maybe I'm expecting too much but there was opportunity for satire to be slipped in here but it never came and it is a lesser film for its absence. I don't know how many times I have to say it for it to sink it, but one last time, this movie is the funniest movie I have ever seen, it is hilarious! On the plane, Kumar lights up his new bong, the air marshals think it's a bomb, and Harold and Kumar are arrested as terrorists and sent to Guantanamo Bay. Ordered to fellate a guard, they manage to escape, make their way to Florida, and head for Texas to find Kumar's ex-girlfriend's fiancé, the well-connected Colton, and get him to intercede with Washington on their behalf. But this movie does not fall in the same category as Half Baked or How High; this is not another typical stoner film. Kumar still has a thing for Vanessa, the feds are in hot pursuit, and the legal weed of Amsterdam seems a long way away.
Yet they arrive at wisdom by accident as they drive around New Jersey in search of fast food. We hope that part isn't lost in the incredible humor. In terms of playing with stereotypes and racial profiling it does offer more and there is a certain delight in seeing so many groups generalised and slandered, however again it is hard not to feel more could have been made of it. The lavatorial humour, the excessive nudity and usual homophobia except of course when it comes to girls is all present but only appears to be there so that the target audience can tick them off - at very least they linger long after the joke is made. Both guys are at a crossroads, about to make major decisions that will affect the course of their lives. .
My grandson Cody and I bonded once again, this time just laughing at the silliness, enjoying the satire, and figuring how we could get his dad to allow his young brother to see it, despite the lurid spots that give spice and lend naughtiness to our increasingly dangerous lives. It is no exaggeration or flattery when I say this movie is the funniest movie I have ever seen. I'm a real cinephile, I see everything and am usually quite picky, but I loved this film!! Here, the Unrated shows two female Asians who want to have some weed from the shy guy who is dancing without a shirt on and waving around a bag of weed. It will probably still please teenage boys with the basics but offers little to a wider audience. Director Danny Leiner 'Dude, Where's My Car? I thought the writing had real wit, not to mention the hidden references and one liners that any film buff will appreciate. I personally, being Indian found much humor in this movie, along with something else, a little pride in the fact that this movie did not portray the lead Indian guy to be just another book worm with a heavy accent. The two early twenties students, one a serious stock analyst and the other a lazy pre-med genius, are like Hope and Crosby in their witty repartee and canny ability to escape harm.
It did still make me laugh but way too infrequently for me to enjoy as a comedy even if it does have really enjoyable hits. Favorite scenes: two sorority types in the restroom and the two African American men in the jail house! The women then cover themselves after noticing the campus police. We gotta leave for the airport in an. The morning they return from their White Castle road trip, Harold and Kumar decide to go to Amsterdam because Harold doesn't want to wait ten days to see Maria again. I haven't laughed so much at a movie since.
