The This movie is so damn stupid that anyone who thinks its brilliant or amazing must be brain-damaged. What makes this movie good? The disjointed plot (it's called Escape from Guantanamo Bay, but is that what the movie's really about, or is it going from one place and joke to another without any real point?) The bad acting (from the whole cast)? The lame, stupid jokes (was there anything intelligent about the humour)? Is it funny cuz of the constant references to drug and sex: if you find that funny then may be you're still a teenager, even though the movie's not for kids. The terrible attempts at satire? The inspiring music? Seriously, think about it: does Harold and Kumar have the makings of a good movie? And by good I don't mean one of those serious dramas that are usually Oscar contenders. I mean good in the sense of normal good, like most Pixar or Dream Works comedies. This movie sucked and blowed at the same time.… Full Review »

While some of the jokes these days have been used so often it isn't even funny anymore, the concept of this movie was pretty hilarious: on their way to Amsterdam, Kumar gets them arrested as terrorists because other passengers think his pot bong is a bomb. Go figure. With a prick of an agent Ron Fox from Homeland Security leading the "investigation", it is clear everything is steadily going to hell. There is a hilarious scene with Fox interrogating Harold and Kumar's parents. The duo in trouble finds their way out of Guantanamo Bay, get back to US soil, and make their way to a friend whom they think might be able to help them. In the end, it seems that their only hope will be the President of the United States. This movie isn't perfect, but it is fun and definitely entertaining. The acting is pretty good too.… Full Review »
Dec 3, 2014This film soo disgusting!! Funny Enough but don't Let the Boobs too more.
I really didn't think the first Harold and Kumar movie was all thatThis film soo disgusting!! Funny Enough but don't Let the Boobs too more.
I really didn't think the first Harold and Kumar movie was all that good, I would rate it at around 6 out of 10, maybe 7, but at least it had more than one funny part. In this sequel the only funny part, to me anyway, was the scenes with George W in the secret room. Other than this, it just plain sucked ass. The filmmakers seemed to rely on gross gags with little or no build up and while I like many films that are stupid/gross, I just could not like this one. It just seemed to fall short of funny, it was predictable and kinda boring and maybe a little uncomfortable. I regretted seeing it while I was watching it.… Full Review »
