Their first taste of success came in 2004 with New Line Cinema's uproarious comedy Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, a film hailed as "an instant stoner classic by Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times. The film garnered critical acclaim and legions of fans, launching Harold & Kumar to immediate cult status. The New York Times said that it was "one of the few recent comedies that persuasively, and intelligently, engage the social realities of contemporary multicultural America.
In 2008, Hurwitz and Schlossberg made their feature-film directorial debut on the highly anticipated sequel Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay, a film they also wrote and co-produced with Mandate Pictures. Variety raved that it was "one of the ballsiest comedies to come out of Hollywood in a long time. In 2011, Hurwitz and Schlossberg penned and co-produced the third installment of their successful franchise, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, which Entertainment Weekly enthusiastically awarded "a straight A. In addition, they have several exciting projects in development such as 21 Shots, a youth comedy they are producing with Montecito Pictures, and Grandma vs. Grandma, a film they scripted for Paramount Pictures.
Hurwitz and Schlossberg currently reside in Los Angeles, California.
