Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle

...and Chris goes to the Video Store

My brother drops off a videotape from Blockbuster for Harold and Kumar, 'cause he thinks I'll like it. Doesn't he know that Blockbuster has photos of me in the break room plastered on the wall with all the other rental-felons?

I won't mention the incident in detail, but needless to say, my money is no longer good there.

Slight spoiler ahead. Stop now if you must.

So I popped the tape into the VCR I have, because you need those for old porn. At first I was half paying attention, fiddling with my laptop - but I closed the lid to actually watch the movie.

I thought this flick would be a bunch of stereotypes strung together with bong hits, and there were a few from each category, but it was actually (kinda) funny. Once Neil Patrick Harris zips by in the stolen Camry doin’ a line of coke off a hooker's ass, I felt like I was bearing witness to cinema history.

But that moment was fleeting. I wouldn't need to own this. If there was a sequel, I might go to a matinee. Funny yes, but not pee my pants funny. Entertainment value = $3.50

But how does it compare to a Mac Mini?
