    Assuming it's the same movie as Harold & Kumar go to White Castle... it's OK, nothing special. Above average stoner comedy i.e. not brainless, but doesn't hold a candle to Jay & Silent Bob. Worth a rental but not a keeper (IMO anyway).

    I guess they must have dropped the WC reference thinking no-one outside of the US would know what WC is (a burger chain, if you indeed... don't).

    This is one of those films i've seen on the rental shelf and thought about renting, but passed cause i thought it would be a bit poo, but ended up getting a loan of it off someone at work, and ended up quite enjoying it.

    There are a few laugh out loud moments i thought, and a smattering of chuckles throughout.. Even my other half enjoyed it!

    A few faces pop up you may recognise, Ryan Reynolds (Mr van Wilder), and Eddie Kay ... AKA.. Finch from american pie.

    I've seen white castle and enjoyed it, but rental rather than buy. is Munchies the same movie for the UK or a follow up?

    Just looked at IMDB and yes it the same movie just renamed for the UK market.

    I'm a bit surprised at the mediocre reviews here. I found this film to be hilarious. The physical comedy bits were excellently done, and the sheer absurdity of the humor really nailed it for me. I was laughing out loud throughout most of the film.

    Although I wouldn't buy the DVD (few comedies are rewatchable, IMO), as far as I'm concerned, this is a must-see rental. It's stupid, it's childish, but it's pretty damn funny.

    I was a little confused by the renaming of the film over here. Sure, nobody knows what White Castle is, but it's clearly explained in the opening 5 minutes of the film. Just another case of renaming a film for no good reason for the foreign market. (I'm guessing someone has to justify their job)

    I agree Azrikam the film was funny but only really worth renting really. Does not test our home cinema kit most of the time - as with most our comedies - with the dialogue and most of the sound coming out of the centre speaker. However, you may think otherwise.

    I liked it but the guy who said it's a poor Jay and Silent Bob are true, like a crap J and Silent Bob mixed with Road Trip

    Just saw advert for Harold & Kumar 2: Escape from Guantanamo Bay on TV which said it's finally in cinemas on May 30th, though i could only find it mentioned on Cineworld website. Looking forward to this as really enjoyed Get The Munchies once I was convinced to watch it :thumbsup:

    me too, im tempted, the 1st one was great.

    Here's a direct link download (.flv) as on page1, to the red band trailer for over 18's or something, which cant be shown on tv.

    my cinema (showcase) dont seem to have it listed as well :(

    Absolutely loved the first one and yet to see the 2nd one as of yet!

    It all depends on your comedy tastes but i like stupid stuff so its right up my street!

    Oh for anyone wanting another decent "stoner" comedy watch "Grandmas boy"

    Very funny!

    Harold and Kumar along with Jay and Silent Bob is one of my fave funnies. The 2nd installement looks pretty good too.

    I was 33 when I watched this, and both my and my wife absolutely p*ssed ourselves laughing.

    If you're after something lightweight and funny this should do the trick.

    You'll never know if you dont try.
