A good commentary. John and Kal prove to be very intelligent as well as funny.

Kal talks about how he and other Indian people at his school took a lot of heat from Apu from The Simpsons. He also tells a story of how he ate a doughnut but he didn't know it had peanuts in it and had to go to hospital. He also admits he hates the Beatles which will anger some.

They talk about how Asians and Indians are portrayed in movies and how this movie avoided that.

John proves to be a lot crazier than his character.

At one point they say that Kumar was going to break the fourth wall, I'm glad they didn't do that.

Probably the best of the three. They talk about the influences. The character Freakshow's real name is Randy named after Trey Parker's father.

They talk about the message of the film is that bad people get their just desserts, which is nice.

They're joined by their friend Harold Lee whom the Harold character is based on. He's just their for laughs.

They also admit they don't smoke weed in real life.

A nice technical track.

Dreadful. It's just some eejit talking about crap for 90 mins. Anytime a scene with tits comes on he says "Oh hot!" and when the gay nurse scene comes on he says "Uh oh! He's one of them!"

This guy hasn't been in a movie since. Hmmm, I wonder why?
