Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle

Released 2004 Rating 15 in UK
Director Danny Leiner Writer/s Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg
Starring John Cho, Kal Penn
Source of story An original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A couple very different young men share a flat, and have a common enthusiasm for maruana. When they see an advert for the burgers at “White Castle” they decide they must get there and sample them. Hence they start their amazing adventure.
Content A sequence of scenes as they pass through different environments, including a hillbilly couple who want to engage in sex with them, a accidental inclusion in an operation on a victim with gunshot wounds, and a ride through the forest on the back of a cheetah. There are some scenes including semi-naked young women, with unfeasably large and well rounded breasts, somehow making them more of a joke.
A View These guys are quite famous, Cho as Sulu in Startrek and Kal Penn as a doctor in House. It is just about watchable. You can almost see the scriptwriters scratching their heads as they try to think of what to do next with another 30 minutes to fill.
