Harold And Kumar Go To White Castle Movie Poster

The F-word and other expletives are often used. Sexual allusions are graphic, including double penetration. Women are denigrated and objectified. A man proposes sex to his wife. There are two instances of topless ladies. Cocaine being snorted on the back of a topless lady. Plays on stereotypes (East Asians like math, South Asians operate convenience stores, police beat up/arrest African Americans, etc.). Continuous marijuana usage is depicted positively / as cool. The man has a dream relationship with a giant bag of week, which includes sex.

To be quite candid, I have never used marijuana and have never been a fan of White Castle. I've never gone across New Jersey to quell a terrible attack of the munchies. However, there are other reasons why this film has such a particular place in my heart. Therefore, let us draw down our pants, take our nose-hair scissors, and proceed to cut our pubic hair.

Harold and Kumar are on the lookout for an all-night White Castle after succumbing to the sudden craving that practically anybody who has eaten a'slider' burger experiences. As with that small bit of fat and calories, the pot and gals are just too nice to pass up on sometimes. The two early-twenties students, one a serious stock analyst and the other a slothful pre-med genius, are reminiscent of Hope and Crosby, with their clever repartee and deft ability to avoid danger. Being rescued from the fury of the severely deformed 'Freak Show' and his siren wife does not stop them from pondering the loves of the fighting babes or idolizing Neil Patrick Harris in a cameo role as a dangerous womanizer. More serious is the multicultural undercurrent regarding stereotype (Asians are geeky number crunchers, for example, while Indians are overachieving medical professionals), which is subverted by transforming a 'Joy Luck' club meeting into a raucous party or by exposing a group of mouthy skinheads as 'girliemen.' It's all pop-cult entertainment at our cost, equivalent to truly liking the contents in 'Playboy' even if they weren't the primary purpose for purchasing the magazines.

On January 4, 2005, the DVD's "Extreme Unrated" version was released. It contains bonus elements such as a mockumentary titled "The Art of the Fart," an interview with Cho and Penn, and a making-of documentary for the animated Land of Burgers part. Additionally, the DVD includes two commentaries: one by authors Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, and another by actor Dan Bochart as Extreme Sports Punk #1. [17] In 2007, the film was re-issued on DVD, and in 2008, a restored version was released. On November 13, 2012, the film was released on Blu-ray. As of August 17, 2008, the film has grossed $30,609,751 from 2,878,770 DVD sales in the United States. [18]
