    West Side Story (1961)

    "Juvenile delinquency is purely a social disease.”
    “Hey, I got a social disease!”

    The Story:

    In 1950s Manhattan, a couple of street gangs are perpetually at war; one is the Jets, a white gang led by Riff Lorton (Russ Tamblyn). The other is the Sharks, a group of Puerto Rican immigrants (dubbed “PRs”), who are headed by Bernardo Nunez (George Chakiris). At a dance attended by both gangs, Tony (Richard Beymer), a former Jet, shows up as insurance against an impending scrap; instead of finding a fight, however, he eyes Maria (Natalie Wood), who happens to be Bernardo’s sister. The two instantly fall in love and meet with disapproval from their fellow gang members. Their romance is also met with tragedy, as tensions between the warring faction come to a head at a violent, deadly rumble.

    A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas (2011)

    "I shot Santa Claus in the face--he's real, and I shot him in the face!"

    The Story:

    It’s been years since Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) escaped Guantanamo Bay and hooked up with the girls of their dreams in Amsterdam. They’ve since grown apart, as Harold finally moved out of their dingy apartment to become a happily-married and successful banker who has given up weed. Meanwhile, Kumar has literally burned out of the medical practice and is spending his Christmas perpetually blazed and watching A Christmas Story. They’ve even each got new friends; in fact, they haven’t even seen each other in two years. However, the two are reunited when a mysterious package arrives at Kumar’s door; it takes the hapless stoner about two minutes to burn down the prize Christmas tree that Maria’s father (Danny Trejo) brought home for the holidays, so the duo are forced to set out on yet another epic journey to find a replacement.

    Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008)

    "Why does everything has to be a huge argument with you, man?”
    "Because this is America, dude, and as long as I have my freedom of speech, no one's going to shut me up!"

    The Story:

    Fresh off of downing more White Castle than is fit for human consumption, Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) head off to Amsterdam to track down the former’s beloved Maria (Paula Garces, aka that hot girl in the elevator from the first movie). At the airport, the two bump into Vanessa (Danneel Harris), an old flame of Kumar’s who is now engaged to Colton (Eric Graham). Though Kumar is somewhat shaken by this news, the allure of all that weed in Amsterdam gets him on the plane anyway. Because they’re minorities, the two are suspected to be terrorists by an old lady on the plane; they don’t help their case when Kumar sneaks a “smokeless bong” onto the plane, which is mistaken for a bomb. The two are swiftly apprehended and tossed into Guantanamo Bay; though their stay is short-lived, they must embark on a cross-country journey to clear their names and win back the love of Kumar’s life.

So begins an outrageous evening that sees our duo battling weed shortages, extreme bullies, corrupt cops, and more…all in the pursuit of perfect burgers!
