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.
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.
The 2nd film in the Harold and Kumar Trilogy, continuing on from the first they decide to go to Amsterdam, but then find them selfs in trouble after being mistaken for terrorists and then sent to guntanamo bay. Lots of funny moments again but lacking the charm of the first film.
This is kind of a letdown.
It's definitely not as sharp or off-beat as the first one, instead going for generic laughs and obvious humour. Rob Corddry's character is most to blame for this; both H&K films flirt with racial stereotypes and openly mock our assumptions, but Corddry is so one-note that there's none of this to be found with his character. He's too harsh of a villain, something the first one didn't need (and indeed was better off without). He's loud and brash and unsubtle, and it drags the entire film down.
It also tries too hard to be something it's not. The first worked so well because it set down this singular goal of getting to White Castle,…
More of the same but that's not a complaint.
Although the cast is still strong, plenty of jokes still work, and it still provokes thought about racial sensitivity, the second Harold & Kumar instalment gets cruder than necessary at times and overall it's consistent over-the-topness makes the films message feel less impactful.
Fairly pointless movie. Although it has it's moments. Not nearly as good as the first movie, but still somewhat hilarious. If this is your type of humor, then go for it. Otherwise, stay away.
Up the social satire AND the poop jokes.
This is a righteous sequel. It takes everything to the next level, most importantly, the satirization of racial profiling. The first film had it, but not nearly on the level of this. It's actually quite refreshing, with Rob Corddry's performance as a perfect take on the post-9/11 conservative mindset. The film also tackles the maturation of Kumar through his quest for an ex-girlfriend, which culminates in a rather brilliant moment at the climax.
Weirdly enough, despite the thing being ultimately pretty smart, it's also REALLY dumb. Sophomoric drug humor, fart jokes, and sex gags only function half of the time. There is smart humor in here, my favorite being the scene where…
