When two best friends Harold and Kumar get stoned, they decide that they are craving White Castle so they set out on what they think will be a quick trip to the restaurant to get their favorite burgers only to have it turn into an epic night of misadventure. Talk about time changing circumstances! Kal Penn plays Kumar who gives us a great view of his spicy Indian caboose while he stands nude in front of a mirror trimming his pubes.
It's hard to imagine now, but not so long ago, men were scouring mainstream movies for glimpses of naked flesh. In Knocked Upit was still early enough in history that characters could reasonably spend their time finding and listing the various nude scenes of famous actresses. That was only seven years ago, but it may as well have been a hundred.
Namely, his role, as Harold, in one of the first major studio projects to feature two Asian American male leads. The query was an unexpected moment of uncertainty, acknowledging that Harold and Kumar is more than just another summer comedy, but also a marker of "racial progress" or lack thereof in Hollywood. You might not expect such heady questions to emerge from a movie directed by Danny Leiner, the man who made Dude, Where's My Car?
This comes all the more as a surprise because of its superficial similarities to director Danny Leiner's last film, " Dude, Where's My Car? That effort was more frequently moronic than funny, and its incessantly nonsensical, thoroughly dull subplot about aliens in the second half sunk whatever charm it might have otherwise had. Harold John Cho and Kumar Kal Penn are year-old best friends just out of college trying to make it in the dreaded "real world.
After spending the evening together smoking pot and becoming quite high, Harold John Choa meek financial analyst who's always pushed around by his co-workers, and Kumar Kal Pennwho's brilliant but refuses to go to medical school as his father wishes, find themselves craving White Castle hamburgers. Their adventure begins when the first restaurant they go to is closed, and they determine to find another one. They end up driving along country roads, picking up a hitchhiker who happens to be famous, being picked up themselves by a creepy tow-truck operator, and they search for more pot.
Hollywood, like everyone else in business, understands that sex sells. Plus, it is why they pay many hot stars a lot of money to perform in these movies naked or in sex scenes. While some may criticize the film industry for using sex or nudity as a way to sell tickets, it is a fact of life.
