47. 'Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle' (2004)

A stoner comedy about a couple of twentysomething buddies on a "quick" road trip to feed their munchies has no right to be this eccentric, progressive and consistently hysterical. Kal Penn and John Cho rode a cheetah into movie history (and let us see Doogie Howser in a whole new light) as two potheads in search of the perfect slider. But our generation's version of Cheech and Chong aren't just out to satisfy their wake-and-bake fast-food cravings – they learn that being young and dumb enough to devote this much passion to getting exactly what you want when you want it is something that fades if you don't live for the moment. We should all be more like Harold and Kumar. BT
