'Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle' (2004)

Slacker buddies Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) really get the munchies after smoking pot in this ribald, gross-out R-rated comedy and set out to a nearby White Castle in order to satisfy their cravings for those little 3-inch square mini burgers. But getting to White Castle isn't quite as easy as they assume. And in the low-rent sequel, "Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay," the lovable losers fly to Amsterdam so Harold can follow his dream woman and the two can smoke all the pot their hearts desire. But their joy ride turns into a bad trip when Kumar pulls out his homemade bong on the plane and it's mistaken for a bomb. Suddenly, they are being hauled off to Gitmo. Grade: Four tokes for "White Castle"; two tokes for "Guantanamo Bay"
