The comedic bar rises
I got a chance to see a sneak preview of 'Harold and Kumar go to White Castle' this past weekend and I must say I was very impressed. Instead of a buddy comedy with a couple dumb guys, they show us a couple of extremely smart pot-heads, one who is always having extra work thrown at him, and one who seems to have all the brains, but no will to work at all. Like all true comedies, the frosting on the cake comes in the cameos. Fred Willard is up to snuff in one of the film's opening scenes. Chris Meloni is completely unrecognizable as Freakshow. Teen flick veterans Eddie Kaye Thomas and David Krumholtz show up as the guys next door, playing essentially white versions of the title characters, only with much better luck. Even Anthony Anderson removes some of the taint of his previous work in a hilarious turn as an employee of a rival fast food place. But the real top notch cameo, the cameo that utterly blows away all other cameos in the history of comedy, belongs to Neil Patrick Harris. Every second he is on screen is worth the price of the ticket itself. I can name only two film cameos to rival Harris- Bob Hope's inexplicable appearance in 'Spies Like Us' and Kareen Abdul Jabaar as the co-pilot (NOT as himself) in 'Airplane.'
And then today, the guy I saw the movie with convinced me to actually eat at White Castle this evening, however I had already ordered a sack of ten meaning to split it with him when he remembered he was vegitarian, leaving me to eat all ten on my own. My intestines may never recover.
They should call it White Colon, not white castle, because your clean as a whistle within 16 hours.
