After being mistaken for terrorists and thrown into Guantánamo Bay, stoners Harold and Kumar escape and return to the U.S., where they proceed to flee across the country with federal agents in hot pursuit.
A high school slacker who's rejected by every school he applies to opts to create his own institution of higher learning, the South Harmon Institute of Technology, on a rundown piece of property near his hometown.
Harold Lee and Kumar Patel are two stoners who end up getting the munchies. What they crave the most after seeing a TV advertisement, is a trip to White Castle. So from here, follows a journey for the burgers they require. On their way they will encounter many obstacles including a raccoon, a racist officer, and a horny Neil Patrick Harris. Written by
Some of the books on Kumar's bookshelf include: "To Kill A Rabbi" by Reuben Slonim, "Spy Story" by Len Deighton, "The Grand Chessboard" by Zbigniew Brzezinski, "The Knight, Death and the Devil", "McMahon!" by Jim McMahon and Bob Verdi, and "Catch". Kumar also has a Fourth Edition MCAT prep book, but that's just the hiding place for his weed, as well as his supply of roaches to roll with. See more »
In the beginning of the movie, when Kumar is meeting with the interviewer for the medical school, the mug on the desk continuously disappears and reappears between shots. See more »

I'm gonna burn it once and for all.

OK, maybe I "got" this movie because I'm a recent graduate of an ivy-league school (and I can relate to Harold and Kumar, and know about 200 people like them), but I didn't stop laughing. And I'm not a person who is into "American Pie" type movies- yet this was still totally hilarious. I think it is going to be one of those cult comedies, like "Office Space" or "Old School" that people watch over and over again.
Listen, don't go in expecting an academy award winning film, but just go in ready to laugh. I thought the writing had real wit, not to mention the hidden references and one liners that any film buff will appreciate.
Go see this movie- I really don't think it will disappoint. I'm a real cinephile, I see everything and am usually quite picky, but I loved this film!!
