    Kal Penn Says He Doesn't Consider The 'Harold & Kumar' Films To Be Stoner Movies

    Since “Harold & Kumar Go To White Castle” was released in 2004, much has happened to both of its stars, Kal Penn and John Cho, but Penn’s career trajectory in particular took some genuinely unexpected turns.

Amazingly, it was another installment of the series that gave him his breakthrough, entitled “A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas,” which prompted...

You can tell how terribly we're supposed to take the threats because of all the shaky shots of Tatum flipping open his ancient cell phone, the scenes shot in sickly shades of blue and green. Except that instead of coming across as su...
