Harold and Kumar
Like the F 9/11 entry, although I’m nominally writing this entry on Friday (12 something AM) I consider it a Thursday entry. As I once told SCV, I don’t consider a day over until I’ve gone to sleep.
Hmm…I wonder what that made Saturday/Sunday during the SF trip ;-)
Truthfully, I really enjoyed Harold and Kumar. It kept me laughing quite a bit throughout the movie. A combination of factors really… For one, I could relate to a some of the stereotypes that have been portrayed. And secondly…I don’t know… Perhaps in some ways it reminded me of my interactions with friends, maybe I just ‘got’ the humor, maybe I just empathized.
At any rate, as Mike can corroborate, I was laughing a fair bit through the movie – which is odd considering I disliked Starsky & Hutch, Old School et. al. Oh – and if anyone says that Zoolander is an awesome movie – I will beat them.
Some of the humor is odd indeed (a part with a cheetah comes into mind) but it seems…I don’t know…appropriate. I can say one thing though – a lot of people were laughing in that theater :)
Oh – and I am a coconut. Haha.
