Directed by Danny Leiner, Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle follows the life-changing (and mind-altering) journey of Korean-American investment banker Harold (John Cho) and Indian-American medical-school candidate Kumar (Kal Penn). Both underdogs, Harold and Kumar decide to spend what would have been an otherwise uneventful Friday night satisfying an oddly intense urge for White Castle hamburgers. However, finding a White Castle proves a highly difficult task, and the two friends wind up on an epic road trip of deep thoughts, deeper inhaling, and enough half-baked, politically incorrect philosophizing to outweigh a White Castle value meal. — Tracie Cooper

Notes
Trivia: The pipe that Goldstein and Rosenberg smoke marijuana out of is made of a shofar. A shofar is a musical horn made from a ram's horn that is used on the Jewish holidays of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. (more)

Goofs: Errors in geography: A sign reading "Self-Service Gasoline form two lines" is visible in one shot. This would be impossible in New Jersey where self service gas stations are illegal. (more)
