Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004)


An Asian-American office worker and his Indian stoner friend embark on a quest to satisfy their desire for White Castle burgers. (IMDb)
This road trip comedy’s low-budget style and simplistic premise give it a down-to-earth vibe that serves as a perfect backdrop for its wacky and wild goings-on (including, but not limited to, riding a cheetah, performing a life-saving surgery, and picking up a high, horny, and hitchhiking NPH). The “loser” leads are likeable throughout, especially when compared to the truck full of assholes that join them within the film’s surprisingly potent satirical attack on racism and related profiling.
6.5/10 (Alright)
