"Did Doogie Houser just steal my f***ing car?
A dumb, funny, low-brow stoner buddy comedy that will appeal to fans of "Old School," "The Hangover," and "Superbad." Giving two non-white actors the leads gives it some novelty and there is some racial humor (unlike another commentator, I wouldn't call is "politically correct")that's edgier than what you usually find in movie like this. John Cho and Kal Penn both underplay rather than go over the top, letting the craziness unfold around them. Neil Patrick Harris, of course, plays himself or, rather, an extreme version of himself. Turn off your brain and enjoy. Followed by 2 sequels.

Non-caucasian twenty-somethings Harold and Kumar forsake a late night at the office and a med school interview respectively in order to smoke a bong and watch bad cable TV. Seized with a sudden case of weed-induced munchies they heed the siren call of a particularly seductive commercial and thus begins a long and torturous all-night road movie as the two stoners go in search of burgers, pot, and p*ssy, in that order. Of course their culinary quest is blindsided at every turn by, among other things, a pick-up truck full of racist neanderthals, a bloodthirsty raccoon, and a cameo by still-closeted Neil Patrick Harris reinventing himself as a coked-out man-slut on the hunt for sloppy chicks. A desperate search for medical marijuana turns into an E.R. parody, an escaped zoo animal provides some unlikely transportation and, in what was for me the film’s only highlight, a brief sojourn in the ladies room lands our heros right in the middle of a spirited game of “battle-shits” between two clueless debs. The “Prejudice is Wrong” sermonizing complete with politically correct ending is tempered somewhat by a lot of drugged non-sequiturs and good-natured racial stereotyping but, in the end, it’s just another vapid teen comedy that tries to convince us it’s so much more because it has a message. John Cho and Kal Penn do share a certain degree of screen chemistry however, their deadpan expressions and comic timing are adequate considering the unexceptional material they had to work with. When a DVD’s option menu is funnier than the film itself you know you’re in trouble.
