A comedy about the search for elusive cheeseburgers, Harold & Kumar Get the Munchies takes the Cheech and Chong stoner-buddy dynamic and puts it into the one-wild-and-crazy-night model, taking our heroes on a quest that inspired two sequels. A surprise hit in 2004, Harold and Kumar Get the Munchies is still potent, high-grade comedy. 

Also showing: Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay, A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas
