Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay
This time they're running from the joint.
Having satisfied their urge for White Castle, Harold and Kumar jump on a plane to catch up with Harold's love interest, who's headed for the Netherlands. But the pair must change their plans when Kumar is accused of being a terrorist. Rob Corddry also stars in this wild comedy sequel that follows the hapless stoners' misadventures as they try to avoid being captured by the Department of Homeland Security.
"Is that grape soda? What the fuck yo?"
Every time I watch this, I tend to find the first half to be just as funny and entertaining as White Castle. But somehow, it seems like the laughs become kind of scattered throughout the second half of the movie, and it begins to feel a bit drawn out overall. Still, a worthwhile sequel of utter ridiculousness and fun involving the hilarious John Cho and Kal Penn.
Movie 1 in Scavenger Hunt #3.
Task #1: A film featuring unicorns!
This movie was ok just like the first movie.
I am not a big fan, but the movie has some funny moments. I especially liked Neil Patrick Harris' and Beverly D'Angelo's cameos.
The chemistry between John Cho and Kal Penn is good and you can feel that they had fun making this.
The movie tries hard to be offensive but it really just seems like harmless fun.
The first half of the movie was the best and the most funny. Towards the end it gets a little drawn out.
Not as funny and not as good as the first one, but it's a movie that you can watch when stoned or sick, and it will make you happy.
MOVIE A DAY FOR A YEAR - DAY 234
These just get better and better.
I preferred this over "Goes to White Castle" surprisingly, but only by a little bit. The two films are very enjoyable, very "WTF?", and mindless entertainment which we can all do with when we can't be bothered to think.
Better than the first one (impossible right?) This film is witty and exciting whilst also being very heartfelt
Very similar structurally to 1 and the Kumar girlfriend plot line is pretty abysmal.
Still funny as fook regardless
Whereas the first H&K movie was a mild diversion, sitting through the second H&K movie is a lot like punishment. Conceived originally as a direct-to-video sequel, this film is almost completely devoid of laughs, with the humor apparently replaced by gratuitous nudity (we're talking waist DOWN shots here). Because I'm a big boy and can watch whatever the hell I want, I watched the unrated version. And if the unrated version, with all its nudity, was a lousy movie, I can only imagine how interminable the rated version was. This time around, the 21st century's answer to Cheech and Chong gets mistaken for terrorists, pine for old flames, escape from Guantanamo Bay, hang-out with inbred rednecks, attend a small Klan…
I dunno, the story was pretty funky but it wasn't as hilarious as just going to White Castle. It was still good fun though.
One of the best sequels to any film that I have ever seen. Seriously.
‘Harold & Humar Escape from Guantanamo Bay’ definitely has satirical intent and is funny in places, but ultimately most of it is an exaggerated rehash of the first one, with many of the same jokes simply done again in a very predictable way. The higher stakes of the plot, higher production values and daytime setting also means it loses its low-key, wacky charm that made its predecessor so appealing. The acting is also much dodgier and its attitudes to women are so repetitive that they do feel a little too misogynist. This isn’t to say there aren’t laughs, because there definitely are. It was passingly entertaining and I was never bored.
Favourite quote: ‘Yeah, send them Indians back to Africa’.
One of the rare comedy sequels that actually works as a follow-up to its predecessor but also as a worthy standalone story on its own.
