Stretches the boundaries of offensiveness in ways that both make us laugh and make us think.
Forrest Hartman

A thin setup followed by thinner jokes.

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle is the latest multicultural variant of the lowbrow buddy comedy in which the heroes just want to get high and laid.

There is a lot of imagination in this wacky ride of a film that would make 'The Dude' from The Big Lebowski very happy.
| Original Score: B

Amid the insane goofiness there's some serious stuff happening that actually speaks to us.

It's what a stoner comedy should be. It's what a buddy comedy should be. Two for the price of one sure as hell ain't bad . . . the funniest thing I've seen in months.

Nearly every gut-wrenching turn is somehow derived from an ethnic slur, juvenile sight gag, or the glorification of an illegal substance and its side effects.

F5 (Wichita, KS)
August 17, 2004
So disreputable in its premise and so fly-by-night in its technique that it's easy to enjoy. It's unburdened by aspirations
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
Brian Orndorf
August 16, 2004
Features quite possibly the worst, most unfunny scene of the 2004 film year.

as far as stoner comedies go, this is a surprisingly well-done affair

Harold and Kumar discover that the American Dream is not to be Doogie Howser; it's to be Neil Patrick Harris.

pulls off the nearly impossible in subverting racial stereotypes by constantly evoking them
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

Film Journal International
August 8, 2004
A raft of guest stars (Neil Patrick Harris, Christopher Meloni, Anthony Anderson, Bobby Lee of "Mad TV")--at their absolute wackiest--flesh out this stoners' banquet.
JoBlo's Movie Emporium
August 7, 2004
...all of which add up to nothing in terms of plot, but plenty in terms of entertainment value, laughs and fun.

An empowering idea is woven with great subtlety into a series of poop jokes, sex jokes, and pot jokes. Maybe some people will miss it. I didn't.

Mixed Reviews
August 5, 2004
Once every summer season, the Holy Grail appears on screen. In 2004, it came as a steaming sack of tiny square burgers, the good end to a long, superb stoner road revue.
| Original Score: 5/5
Susan Tavernetti
Palo Alto Weekly
August 5, 2004
The pacing is clunky, with the flat feel of a sitcom.
| Original Score: 2/4

That the movie is dumb goes without saying. But is it funny? You betcha.
