A part of me wonders whether the 'Stoner Movie' has reached its used by date. Well, maybe they have, maybe they haven't, or maybe this was just one of the really bad ones. Okay, you did have the classic Stoner Movies of the 80s and 90s, including Bill and Teds (which, while they are clearly stoners, doesn't have them smoking drugs), and these days you have copious amounts of marijuana appearing on our screens, but the whole concept of a couple of drug users going on a trek to get some food can be a little dull – and this is basically what this movie is about: two stoners go on a quest to get some food.
Honestly, I'm not too thrilled about this film, especially with the characters. Sure, Harold was okay, but his so called best friend, Kumar, is one of those guys that is clearly a bad influence. It is almost as if we want to slap Harold about the face, tell him to snap out of it, and to actually go and find some decent friends. Sure, while it is the case that business people do take drugs, Harold really didn't come across as one of those drug user types. In fact it seemed as if he was completely out of place, and completely out of character.
The other thing about this film is that it is one of those T&A movies (and I'll let you work out for yourself what that means since IMDb does have a word filter on it). Sure, I've seen plenty of those types of films in my time, but in reality there really isn't all that much to be said about the excess exposure of flesh in some of these films. Also, the film was so predictable, which added to its blandness. In a sense, while it was a low budget film, it really wasn't one of these films that I would recommend going out of your way to see because it isn't entertaining, it isn't funny, and it really isn't all that enjoyable.
