1. “Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle” (2004)
How far would you go to satisfy your munchies? In “Harold and Kumar go to White Castle,” a pair of stoners take their craving for sliders to the next level. The movie starts with Harold, a nervous, respectable accountant, and Kumar – a disobedient med student, as they attempt to find the closest White Castle to satisfy their midnight need for burgers.
The duo embarks on an adventure that sees them outrun the cops, avoid creepy trailer park trash, to end up at the promised land they so desperately dream to cure their hunger. “Harold and Kumar” comes packed full of laughs, and the directors saw the opportunity to turn the one-off movie into a trilogy.
While the other two movies are fantastic in their own right, they pale in comparison to the originality and hilarity of the first movie. Starring John Cho and Kal Penn, and directed by Danny Leiner, this is a must-see comedy movie for anyone looking for a bunch of laughs.
