Today I learned that ‘Harold and Kumar get the munchies’ is called ‘Harold and Kumar go to Whitecastle’ in the American release. This strikes me a ridiculous as changing the title doesn’t remove the umpteen drug references not to mention the massive bag of weed they spend several scene chucking across the room. I can only think that there must be people who are genuinely offended by the possibility that a film that may make reference to drugs/drug culture will be available in a cinema near them. I would have thought it was safer for them to know what it was straight off so they could avoid it from the off but – oh gosh – I’m just not thinking of the children: they might read a word and be corrupted by it.
remember that kids: don’t read, don’t think, stay safe.
