Under the Gun Review: How Harold & Kumar Became Part of American Pop Culture

Harold & KumarIt seems like the most unlikely of pairings. An Indian American actor paired with a Korean American and both in title roles. I say unlikely because Hollywood shies away from casting Asian Americans in lead roles, let along two Asian Americans.

As unlikely as it seems, Harold & Kumar have become part of American pop culture.

It’s been ten years since Harold & Kumar Goes to White Castle was released. Two sequels later, people still talk about the pair.

On the surface, its just a stoner movie. But underneath it all, it has a much larger significance. It broke Asian American stereotypes and the characters were two people audiences really cared about.
