Harold & 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… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantánamo Bay, a loosely strung-together collection of sex, race, and stoner jokes, is, by any rational standard, a terrible movie, yet I kept laughing at it, and I came out of the theatre in a good mood."
‑ David Denby, New Yorker
"The jokes all revolve around weed, stereotypes, and Neil Patrick Harris; the stereotype stuff is by far the funniest."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"A bag of shoddy skits that barely qualifies as a movie and taints pleasant memories of their previous clowning besides"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Just make sure that you're really stoned when you see it."
‑ Jarrod Walker, FILMINK (Australia)
"Amid the dick jokes, drug taking and gratuitous nudity, the film also serves as a salient reminder about what actually ranks as subversive comedy."
‑ Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia)
"A fitfully funny if somewhat less excellent sequel."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"A guilty pleasure that retains the anarchic charms of the original."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"As the idea is no longer fresh and the plot has basically the same structure, it doesn't quite match the original. But the sequel delivers enough new developments to keep it interesting."
‑ , The Australian
"Every aspect of the production is atrocious in the extreme.The writing is awful. The direction is bilious."
‑ Leigh Paatsch, Daily Telegraph (Australia)
"Hurwitz and Schlossberg can't quite recapture their magic in this spotty stoner sequel."
‑ Heather Huntington, ReelzChannel.com
"As much as I enjoyed the pot-fueled laughs and the sheer energetic lunacy of the original, I was really let down by this uninspired sequel."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"This is one of those rare pictures that can gross you out and make you think at one and the same time."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"For a stoner comedy, it makes some lucid points."
‑ Jason Di Rosso, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"The film is so even-handed and so diligent in its urge to offend that after a while I felt myself go numb."
‑ Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
"There's an abundance of toilet humour, masturbation, oral sex and fantasies about threesomes with an oversized bag of weed ... The target market will no doubt be primed"
‑ Louise Keller, Urban Cinefile
