Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Wasn't Crunk Enough the First Time

Although Harold and Kumar does provide a good sense of family fun, it does lack the comradery of the homebound classic American Pie. I would personally suggest the latter if you have the option, but Harold and Kumar will suffice for family game night if one has already tapped from the bottle
