Critics Consensus: The likable leads and subversion of racial stereotypes elevate Harold and Kumar above the typical stoner comedy.

A multilayered goof on ethnic stereotypes...

Behind all the Farrelly-esque gross-out humour and Cheech & Chong-isms lies a sensitive little pic...

There's an audience that will appreciate this, but they may struggle to see it through the smoke.

Common Sense Says
Extremely silly and vulgar comedy with some clever humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this movie wallows in bad taste and is cheerfully vulgar and offensive in every possible category. It includes constant drug use, bad language, extremely explicit toilet humor, and frequent and explicit sexual references and situations. There is comic violence, some graphic, including a scene in surgery with a lot of blood and a disfigured man. While some characters are bigoted and there is a lot of homophobic and racist humor, a strength of the movie is the portrayal of diverse characters.

A Lot or A Little?
