    Carla Meyer San Francisco Chronicle

    Pretty standard stuff, mixing a few truly clever moments with facile drug humor and throwaway female characters. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    The recent model for this kind of surreal jazz-riff comedy is Doug Liman's 1999 "Go," a neo-classic. But you know already from the director (Dude, Where's My Car?'s Danny Leiner) if this movie is for you. Leiner has cornered the recent market on low-rent farces. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    The twist of Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, a laugh-out-loud if not-exactly-good stoner comedy, is that its heroes, an entry-level investment banker and a brainiac pre-med student, are not dimwits. show more

    Jack Mathews New York Daily News

    The laugh ratio in this run-on of skits is pretty low, at least to the unaltered mind of one who's seen enough of these films and eaten enough White Castle burgers to last a lifetime. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    A blissfully silly, character-driven road movie with impressive laugh-per-minute performance specs. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    I laughed often enough during the screening of Harold & Kumar that afterward I told Dann Gire, distinguished president of the Chicago Film Critics' Assn., that I thought maybe I should rent "Dude, Where's My Car?" and check it out. show more

    Chicago Tribune

    This stoner buddy movie is filled with raunchy, gross-out humor. It's immature, clunky and probably the best bit of groundbreaking social commentary we've seen in years. show more

    Lou Lumenick New York Post

    The most gut-bustingly funny movie so far this year. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Penn's Kumar could become Jeff Spicoli for the generation of college kids who've never seen "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" but always seem to have a copy of "Dude, Where's My Car?" cued up at a moment's notice. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Clearly, this unabashedly silly movie, written by Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, is the work of people with a grasp of the stream-of-consciousness creativity that a few bong hits can impart. show more
