Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: Harold & Kumar pick up where they left off, smoking weed, and living a life of total awesomeness. Unfortunately, on their way to Amsterdam, (where they hope to smoke weed and be awesome), they get mistaken for terrorists and sent to Guantanamo Bay... Which only makes it that much more difficult for them to hook up with the women they love.

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: John Cho, Kal Penn, Neil Patrick Harris, Rob Corddry, Roger Bart, Danneel Harris, Eric Winter, David Krumholtz, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Missi Pyle

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketGo! A classic stoner buddy movie that totally lives up to its prequel. (Don't worry if you didn't see, or don't remember, the first one. Everything you need to know is covered in the first 60 seconds of this film. In others words, there's nothing you need to know from the first one.)

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: Oh, yeah... And for as far as they go into jokes about drugs and racism, somehow, the only jokes I found offensive had to so with things that come out of your butt.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: No, but it might make you want to punch any number of ignorant characters in the face.

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Only Comedy Getting Made Without Judd Apatow in the Credits.

Q: How is the Acting?

A: John Cho and Kal Penn are totally believable as a couple of Asian guys.

Q: How is the Directing?

A: The directors of this sequel (who are also the writers of both films) did not direct Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, and yet the two films are very consistent when it comes to look and feel... This either proves that first-time directors, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, are naturally talented, or that anyone can direct a movie.

Q: How is the story/script?

A: Funny, clever, daring, surprising, true to the first movie, yet totally original, and without any loose ends. The only disappointing part is the very last moment before the end credits roll, where it seems like after a movie full of death defying feats, the writers just threw up their hands and gave up for no reason.
