DVD review of Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle.

I must say I was skeptical about seeing this movie.  I watched it because my wife wanted to see it.  I was pleasantly surprised, because it turned out to be a hybrid of American Pie and Van Wilder.  Okay, if you do not like that kind of humor, you can skip over to the next review.


This is a buddy flick, and the movie’s title says it all.  It’s Friday night, and the guys get a craving for White Castle after seeing a commercial.  Unfortunately, the local restaurant has been closed down, and it’s 45 minutes away to the closest one.


Their car ride leads being attacked by a raccoon, performing quick surgery on a gunshot victim, having their car stolen by Neil Patrick Harris (a.k.a. Doogie Howser), dealing with a crazy cop, and hang gliding their way to White Castle.  Yes, they are crazy circumstances, and there are even more I have not shared, but there is great comic timing and dialogue that appealed to the juvenile side of my humor palette.


Extras on the DVD include commentary, deleted/alternate scenes, bloopers, and a making-of featurette.


GRADE: A (movie) B+ (DVD)
