Review of Harold and Kumar

Posted by phduffy on 2004-08-20 15:39:34
I saw Harold and Kumar last night. I was neither drunk nor high.

The plot: they get high and need some White Castle. On their way there they get detoured.
Hilarity ensues.

That's pretty much it. They end up at Princeton, in the sticks, at a hospital, a convenience store, and meet Doogie Howswer.

This movie has some of the same stuff that every road trip movie has, like the weirdo that lives in the middle of no where. He's a little too weird for my taste, but his scene did lead to one of the funniest lines in the movie.

Hm. I don't really have much to say. There's some racist dicks in the movie, which reminds me of a radio preview I heard for it:
"If you think all asian guys are good with numbers...
and all Indians work at convience stors.
Then you're a racist"

Okay, it was much funnier on the radio.

Doogie Howswer actually kind of let me down. He was somewhat hilarious, but not quite hi-larious. At least he wasn't wearing an SS uniform and chasing down Space Bugs. The most hilarious was Screech in Made, but that's a seperate issue.

This movie is stupid and dumb, but it's actually stupid and dumb in a good way. There's the requisite boobs and bathroom humour, but less of it than most movies like this. Compare this movie to something like Eurotrip, and you realize how easy it is to make a bad movie like this.

So Harold and Kumar is good. Worth a rental.

For the children:
The dude sitting behind us brought his kids, who were about 10 and 12, to a movie about getting high and getting laid.
