A multilayered goof on ethnic stereotypes...
February 9, 2006
Behind all the Farrelly-esque gross-out humour and Cheech & Chong-isms lies a sensitive little picture with a deftly handled anti-racism slant.

There's an audience that will appreciate this, but they may struggle to see it through the smoke.
January 15, 2005
Stretches the boundaries of offensiveness in ways that both make us laugh and make us think.

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.

A peppy, satisfying comedy that could soon become a minor classic.
July 30, 2004
Will seem a classic if you're stoned, and only slightly less funny if you're straight.
July 30, 2004
This is one more 'youth movie' that'll put years on anyone over 25.

If it's possible for a movie to be sly and full-on raunchy at the same time, Danny Leiner's p.o.v.-shifting stoner-buddy comedy is it.

It's a delightful surprise that Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle is so hilarious for pretty much all the reasons it should be so predictably brainless.
July 30, 2004
Has enough laughs and misadventures to satisfy its built-in audience, but it won't win any converts.
July 30, 2004
Crude, tasteless, sophomoric and crass. It is also, sometimes, funny.

While Harold & Kumar isn't quite a low-brow revelation on the scale of Clerks, it is one of film history's more inspired examples of off-color Jerseyana.
July 30, 2004
The most gut-bustingly funny movie so far this year.
July 30, 2004
The laugh ratio in this run-on of skits is pretty low, at least to the unaltered mind of one who's seen enough of these films and eaten enough White Castle burgers to last a lifetime.

This gonzo ganja comedy is propelled more by sly charm, sharp wit and stinging social satire than by mere smoke jokes.
July 30, 2004
Plays it a little too safe and hackneyed with the comedy, but the characters and the talented actors who play them are a refreshing change of pace that make the movie feel like a minor buddy-comedy revolution.
July 30, 2004
Perfectly paired, John Cho and Kal Penn take the stereotypes of the brilliant Asian and the genius Indian for a joyride.
July 30, 2004
What's engaging about all this is that Penn and Cho are smart actors doing very dumb humor. Somehow the combination proves amusing.

One secret of fiction is the creation of unique characters who are precisely defined. The secret of comedy is the same, with the difference being that the characters must be obsessed with unwholesome but understandable human desires.
