The beauty of this film is the amount of fun you know these guys are having. As in most road pictures, there's really not a whole lot to Harold and Kumar's set up or, indeed, its episodic execution. Kumar Kal Penn is a young Indian American, who has an interview for med school to attend in the morning. He loved it like I said, and can't wait to see the next ones - the Christmas one and the Guantanamo Bay one. Harold and Kumar go into a convenience store to get directions and Harris drives away in their car. The story follows Harold Lee and Kumar Patel as they decide to go to the fast food chain after smoking , but end up on a series of comical misadventures along the way.
Often just a raised eyebrow on the part of Kumar, as he can't believe yet another one of Harold's straitlaced idiocies, is enough to provoke giggles. The restaurant served 40,000 burgers to patrons, including , and. A number of very funny supporting turns also aids and abets the stars in their journey to a New Jersey White Castle. As long as they have plenty of weed to smoke on the way of course. In the first movie when ordering their food at the White Castle, Harold asked for 30 sliders, 5 french fries, and 4 large Cherry Cokes, while Kumar ordered the same except with Diet Cokes. Nerdy accountant Harold John Cho and his irrepressible friend, Kumar Kal Penn , get stoned watching television and find themselves utterly bewitched by a commercial for White Castle.
Overall, though, this is a sharp and clear presentation that should easily please most fans of the film. Harris suddenly appears, having craved the food when hearing them talk about it and pays for their meal as an apology for stealing their car, which he also pays for to repair. Once in a while you have to watch mindless stuff as a relief valve. Meanwhile, Kumar Patel attends a medical school interview, but intentionally botches it to prevent getting accepted. Harold is in love with his neighbor, Maria, of Hispanic descent, but has not told her yet. Their excellent adventure with marijuana coincides with an expected case of the munchies and a perhaps fortuitously aired television ad for the hamburger chain White Castle, which of course strikes the two as the most perfect food imaginable. While Harold is employed as a Stock Analyst, Kumar is a medical student.
Vanessa is well played by the attractive Danneel Harris in a role that doesn't get much screen time. My biggest concern going in was with the war on terrorism satire that the trailers tried so hard to get across. Kumar buys marijuana from one of the students and they are discovered by campus security and forced to flee, losing their marijuana after it falls in the toilet. Being that she is about to marry an aspiring politician, the inclusion not only plays into the need of a love interest, Maria is still in Amsterdam, and of course we all know the boys don't make it off the plane to see her , but also into the ability to bring the government in through his connections. Let's just say that my 14 year old loved it. This may not be total eye candy for those herbally enhanced, but it's a very solid Blu-ray, with a nicely sharp image full of well saturated color, a variegated palette, and pleasing fine detail.
Watch it again and again and then, grab yourself by the balls if you are a post-op trans; skip this part and visit a white castle. Just a bit awkward but no biggie. Pay-Per-View videos will become available to watch once the event starts, will be available for playback for 24 hours following the event, and are not available for Download. Hurwitz and Schlossberg decided to go pedal to the metal with this film and they never make a compromise, kudos to them for that. In fact the film's breakneck pace is one of its best features. Writers Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, also serving as directors this time around, have upped the ante like the sequel cliché goes.
The two most notable are a completely unrecognizable Christopher Meloni, buried under several strata of ugly latex, in a completely off the wall portrayal as Freakshow, the Deliverance-esque tow truck operator who picks the boys up after they crash their car in the woods. The movie revolves around Harold and Kumar trying to get to Amsterdam to find Maria, but when the two are mistaken for terrorists on the plane, they are sent to the. While Harold is employed as a Stock Analyst, Kumar is a medical student. Genre: , Stars: , , Director: Danny Leiner Country: , , Rating: 6. It is, in fact, like a stoner's meal at White Castle: not particularly nutritious, but surprisingly delicious. People could badmouth this effort very easily for many reasons, most obvious is the fact that it is pretty much the exact same film as the first.
This enables you to watch the video without an Internet connection. She informs Harold that she is leaving for Amsterdam but will return in ten days. After auditioning seven times, Penn eventually won the part. Kumar picks up a hitchhiker, , who is high on. Both contrast and black levels are solid and well modulated here, and the brief animated sequence toward the end of the film looks especially robust.
Convinced there must be one nearby, the two set out on a late-night odyssey that takes them deep into New Jersey. The secret of comedy is the same, with the difference being that the characters must be obsessed with unwholesome but understandable human desires. During filming, Penn ate veggie burgers as he is a vegetarian. This Blu-ray looks and sounds great and the film is Highly what else? Yet, there were very few instances where I wasn't laughing let alone smiling at the proceedings. The morning they return from their White Castle road trip, Harold and Kumar decide to go to Amsterdam because Harold doesn't want to wait ten days to see Maria again.
