    Synopsis


    Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay
    After successfully seeking out the ultimate slider in the 2004 stoner comedy Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle, the cannabis-craving twosome returns in this high-flying sequel that finds them labeled terrorists for attempting to sneak a marijuana-smoking implement on a flight to Amsterdam. Harold (John Cho) and Kumar (Kal Penn) have just finished gorging themselves on savory White Castle hamburgers when they return to their apartment and hatch a plan for Harold to win the heart of his crush, Maria (Paula Garcés). Maria is going to Amsterdam, and if Harold can catch up with her overseas perhaps he can strike up a real love connection. After a close call with airport personnel and a chance encounter with Kumar's ex-girlfriend Vanessa (Danneel Harris) -- who hadn't yet told Kumar that she's engaged to be married -- the pot-loving pals finally board their flight for Amsterdam. Unfortunately for Harold, Kumar isn't able to endure the lengthy flight without an innocent puff or two from his smokeless bong. When the plane hits some turbulence and the bong is mistaken for a bomb, the flight is diverted to Guantanamo Bay and our spliff-smoking heroes are detained by overzealous Deputy Chief of Homeland Security Ron Fox (Rob Corddry). Now, if they can just escape from the world's most notorious prison compound, perhaps this hapless duo can succeed in convincing the authorities that they aren't enemy combatants, and that Kumar made the mistake of his life by letting Vanessa go. But before they can prove their innocence and get the girls, Harold and Kumar will have to outsmart the dreaded Ku Klux Klan, contend with a particularly precocious Cyclops baby, and successfully elude everyone's favorite debauched former child star -- Neil Patrick Harris. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Oh my god, this movie was unbelievably funny. It's been a long time since ive seen a movie as funny this. For those who never saw this in theaters, that sucks cause it was totally worth it. When me and my friend went to see this there were only like 10 people in there and u couldnt hear some of the things in the movie from everyone laughing. There is no doubt that i wont get this, as soon as it comes out, im gonna go buy it. For those who saw the first harold and kumar and liked it, this is way, way better than the first. I cant wait till i see this again, I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!!!!!!!

      Non Stop Laughing

      My fiancee and I saw this as soon as it came out in the movie theater. We were given the original flick “Harold & Kumar go to white castle” and absolutely loved its great sense of humor and non stop laughs, so obviously we were super excited to see them again, when the buzz of another flick surfaced. We would recommend this movie to anyone who has a great sense of humor and loves those wacky guys Harold and Kumar its non stop laugh out loud dialog will keep you entertained.

      This is the funniest movie I have seen in a loooong time, I expected this to be funny but not this funny. If youve seen the first harold and kumar and u liked it, this is the movie for u cause this is even better. There are so many funny parts in this movie that will make u laugh so hard. Especialy the part when it shows both Harold and Kumar in college. I highly recommend this movie!

      Not as good as the first

      The movie overall wasn't as good as the first movie. Many of the humors in this one is more on the disgusting side rather than the funny side. For example the part in the prison. Surprisingly I was eating and I wanted to through up while watching the movie. Overall the movie was good but I wouldn't say that it is a must get. It is very enjoyable but next time I think I'm gonna watch the theater version of the movie.

      I thought this movie was hilarious. I liked the first one just a little bit more, but this sequel is just as funny. Harold and Kumar once again getting into all sorts of trouble and ending up on top, and I really enjoyed it. If you want an evening full of laughs, then this movie is for you.

      I am a big fan of the first Harold and Kumar movie and others like it, and while this one, in my opinion, is not as good as the first one, I found it to be funny. It is a good addition to the series and will satisfy its target audience.

      To me this movie is a classic. I was excited when I saw this on blu ray in the bargain bin. Had to get it. Love all the extras especially the George W. Bush psa. If you're a Harold and Kumar fan, get this movie.
