Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay (2008) Reviewed


Even though it lacks some of the manic energy that made Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle such a wild ride, there are plenty of laughs to justify the barage of fart, shit and dick jokes that pack this worthy rental. John Cho and Kal Pen play stoners Harold and Kumar, respectively, who are mistaken for terrorists when they try to sneak a bong aboard a flight to Amsterdam. The Daily Show‘s, Rob Courdry is the moronic DHS agent who literally wipes his ass with the Bill of Rights. Neil Patrick “Doogie Howser” Harris makes the expected appearance, devouring the scenery and a full bag of shrooms, hallucinating unicorns but not before fire branding whores with his initials. There’s a funny bit with an upscale Alabaman hillbilly inbreeders and their cyclops son, a less funny bit with the Klu Klux Klan and a grand finale in which George W smokes up H and K. When challenged by Kumar for being a pothead prez who fights legalization, W breaks it down: “Do you like giving hand jobs? No? Do you like receiving hand jobs? Yeah? Well, then you’re a hypocriticizer too.”
