From the director of Dude, Where’s My Car? comes another crazed tale of two friends on a perilous quest–in this case, to eat burgers at the fast food restaurant White Castle. The pair–repressed Harold (John Cho, Better Luck Tomorrow) and freewheeling Kumar (Kal Penn, Love Don’t Cost a Thing)–get extremely high and set off on the road, only to be sidetracked by skateboarding hooligans, racist cops, an inbred tow truck driver, and Neil Patrick Harris–yes, Doogie Howser, M.D. The humor is all over the map, and it would be nice if there were one female character who wasn’t a caricature, but Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle has a loose, gregarious charm, and the movie’s canniness about the cliches of the buddy-movie genre give it a sneaky subversive feel–just the fact that neither of the heroes is white puts a different spin on just about every circumstance. Surprisingly clever, cheerfully stupid.
