The world’s favourite Asian-American stoner dudes return for a sequel entitled Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay. You just know that Kumar is behind the problem that they have. Ok, so it’s actually 4 years since the duo’s first movie but in this film, it’s mere minutes after the end of the first. As we know Maria is leaving for a trip to Amsterdam and Harold & Kumar have just got back from White Castle. As the movie starts, we see Harold dreaming about Maria while taking a shower to get rid of the dirt during the previous night’s activities. However he is rudely interrupted by Kumar, who is noisly taking a dump after eating all those 30 burgers. The two decide to go to Amsterdam and join Maria, while also taking in the pleasures of legal weed that the nation of Holland can provide them. Before they board the flight they run into Kumar’s ex Vanessa and her fiance Colton, who has connection in political circles. On the plane an old lady mistakes the bong that Kumar tries to light up to be a bomb and alerts the air marshalls in the plane. So…our boys are arrested and after an interrogation by a neurotic Ron Fox (Under Secretary of Homeland Security, played by Rob Coddry) they are put in orange jumpsuits and sent to Guantanamo Bay. They managed to escape the jail and avoid having a ‘cock meat sandwich’ and make their way back to the US in a boat.
What follows next is odd & funny situations that only M/s Lee & Patel can get themselves into. They go to meet a friend who has a bottomless party in his palatial place (lots of bare women’s butts on display) and get a car from him. There’s the Southern couple who have an inbred son and who take the pair into their house. Running away from their one-eyed son, the duo find themselves smack down in the center of a Ku Klux Klan’s bonfire. Running from the Klan, they flag a car only to find that it’s driven by a mushroom eating Neil Patrick Harris. He offers to take them to Texas to meet Colton who they think can help them with his connections. But ofcourse, NPH has to stop at a Texas brothel and have sex with the bustiest whore in there.
Kumar takes two hot whores into a room, where he asks them to make out and then they strip him. However he starts to cry about Vanessa while they comfort him. Harold sits and has coffee with the rest of the whores, until NHP brands the big, busty whore with an iron rod on the ass. In the skirmish that follows, NHP is shot dead by the brothel madam. The pair make it to Colton’s Texas house but he turns them in to the authorities. In a struggle on the plane, Harold & Kumar jump in a shute and land in President Bush’s Texas home, where they bond over excellent grass! Bush pardons the two and the guys crash the wedding and beat up Colton. Vanessa is convinced that Kumar really loves her and she leaves with him & Harold. The three of them make their way to Amsterdam where they find Maria and they have a jolly old time in that city.
It’s fun, it’s silly, there’s a bunch of tits & asses on display. James Adomin looks enough like George W to poke a few cracks at the moron Prez. The girls are beautiful, there’e enough laughs in it, although it won’t do as well as the original. But I enjoyed watching it and so will you if you don’t mind the stoner frat boy sense of humour.
