Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle

Saw the comedy Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle. Harold Lee (John Cho), a Korean investment banker and Kumar Patel (Kal Penn), a wannabe med student are interested in only 2 things: smoking weed and babes. They head out one Friday night to have burgers at a White Castle and get drawn into all kinds of adventures. This is the first real US comedy I’ve seen with Asian lead characters. A large part of the humour comes from how Asians are stereotyped by Caucasians. The movie’s a real stress buster. Kal Penn is hilarious! A sequel named Harold & Kumar Go To Amsterdam is in the works. I’m definitely catching that one.
