Movie Summary

Director:
Danny Leiner
Released:
2004
Rating:
R

Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle follows the life-changing (and mind- altering) journey of Korean-American investment banker Harold Lee and Indian-American medical-school candidate Kumar Patel.

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.
