One thing for sure. Acting has nothing to do with having talent. High school kids could have done comparable acting to this film.
It proves talent has very little to do with making money. I'm glad it did well.

Worthless. Steaming. Bag. Of. Dog. Excrement.

Lazy, half-ass writing/filmmaking at its pinnacle.

Never came so close to walking out of a movie. I enjoy semi-raunchy, post-adolescent male comedies as much as the next guy, but give me well-done, premediated, honed, crafted comedy. This movie could not have taken more than 45 minutes to scrawl down on paper. I use the word "scrawl" because I think it would be far too generous to classify what transpired at that meeting of the minds as "writing".

"Hey, let's just write a scene with tons of bottomless women and call it a day, guys. I think TGI Fridays may still be open. Sweet."

Lame.

This just in at the Fake News Desk: "HK2" is earning early buzz in Oscar race for best screenplay. In an unrelated story, readers of LaMovBlog have just given up hope for the future of cinema and humanity.

H&K just announced Jessica Simpson will star in and direct the sequel to Harold & Kumar 3. It will be filmed at a Bossier City trailer park. She is up for an oscar for her acting in Blonde Ambition.
It grossed $25,000 so far, a new record for movies out of Shreveport. Hollywood "Sowth"

Pleased to meet you...won't you guess my name?

I can't reveal my true id because I don't want to be arrested for exposing myself. I saw what happened to Hanna Montana and I want to stay out of the "pubic" eye.

I'll just be a guest blogger for now. We can talk business later.
